Season Launch Party 2013
Curated by AUNTS

Known for throwing DIY performance events in lofts, museums and even once on a boat, AUNTS will take over this year’s Season Launch Party in their signature fashion of overstimulation – multiple performers, overlapping performances and inter-disciplinary work culminate into an all out dance party at the end of the evening. Featuring performances by Justin Cabrillos, Levi Gonzalez, Fantasy Grandma, Stanley Love, Bessie McDonough-Thayer, Jillian Pena, Molly Poerstal, Matt Romein (interactive video), Elizabeth Ward, Emily Wexler and more!

Tickets: $30 in advance | $35 at the door
All tickets include open bar + hors d’oeuvres

AUNTS, an underground platform for dance, creates events in unconventional spaces with multiple performers, overlapping performances, open dance parties, multi-disciplinary, body/non-body based, time oriented, finished/experimental/unfinished/process art. AUNTS has partnered with public venues such as the famous Clipper City schooner at the South Street Seaport, littlefield, and OfficeOps. Art organizations such as The Chocolate Factory, Dixon Place, Movement Research, New Museum, TAMTAMTAM in Berlin, Germany, The American Dance Festival, Catch!, Danspace Project and Chashama, as well as many repurposed spaces including Arts@Renaissance, The Secret Works Loft, St. Cecilia’s Convent, and The Event Center. AUNTS are Laurie Berg and Liliana Dirks-Goodman.

Karl Allen, Enrico Ciotti, Seth Hamlin, Risa Shoup, Pavel Zustiak

Performances made possible in part with support from the Mertz Gilmore Foundation. Food generously provided by Vbar.
