Murmurings Overnight

Description

Here's how James Joyce explains his novel of the night, "Finnegan's Wake": 'I haven't lived a normal life since 1922, when I began 'Work in Progress'. It demands an enormous amount of concentration. I want to describe the night itself," he said. "Since 1922 my book has become more real to me than reality, and everything has led to it; all other things have been insurmountable difficulties, even the smallest realities such as, for instance, having to shave in the morning. There are, so to say, no individual people in the book – it is as in a dream, the style gliding and unreal as the way it is in dreams." In the book itself, from which we'll have a reading, he also gives this helpful summary: "and look at this prepronominal funferal, engraved and retouched and edgewiped and puddenpadded, very like a whale’s egg farced with pemmican, as were it sentenced to be nuzzled over a full trillion times for ever and a night till his noddle sink or swim by that ideal reader suffering from an ideal insomnia." ------------ I love this idea of day vs night. The place beyond the rational but before the unconscious, the murmuring. As Joyce explained to Max Eastman: “In writing of the night, I really could not, I felt, use words in their ordinary connections . . . that way they do not express how things are in the night, in the different stages – conscious, then semi-conscious, then unconscious. I found that it could not be done with words in their ordinary relations and connections. When morning comes of course everything will be clear again . . . . I’ll give them back their English language. I’m not destroying it for good.” Our host for the night, BK Sanctuary, has an incredible space they're opening from dusk till dawn - an overnight retreat right here in Brooklyn. We've asked the performers to use their soundbaths, movement and songs to bring this transition from day to night to life throughout the many parts of the sanctuary. Proceeds going to the collaborators who make it happen. ------------ Bring a sleeping bag. Bring a swimsuit (there's a sauna). ------------ The night will begin with a cacao ceremony by Kim Ennis at 10pm, and then an extraordinary soundbath meditation by the one and only Run Child Run. Then five acts throughout in and outdoors - as well as plenty of time to get to know one another. ------------ Limited to 35 spots. Your spot includes the cacao ceremony, an hour long Soundbath, four hours of intimate sets for the dancers and musicians exploring this theme. We'll also provide home made food from an Artery chef and beverages. Support: $70, including staying overnight, Early Bird Discount: First 15 spots are half price ($35).

What to expect

We're putting an Artery spin on a sleepover. The intimacy is the atmosphere and the artists are the lightning. We're carefully curating this one to be unforgettable.

Why is this happening?

To bring together thirty people overnight in a beautiful place. Bookend the day and leave room for the night.

Home Away From Home - An Intimate Festival Celebrating Brooklyn's Creative Communities

Description

It's been a crazy year getting Artery going in NYC and it wouldn't be possible without the incredible creative communities that have been doing this long before our site had a single line of code. We want to celebrate them in a big way. An all day, around the world, DIY Disneyland. Artery showcases are intimate - that's the whole idea. But for one day, we're gonna do a day long extravaganza to celebrate all of the communities who have taught and inspired us. And despite the earnest description, this will be a day of passion and mystery. No seriously, unforgettable. JAPAN Collective JAPAN is a Brooklyn based performance collective that hosts semi monthly showcases to give artists working in all spheres a space to share their work and engage new audiences. JAPAN was founded by Waylen Roche in Fall 2015. After attending a performance party in Berlin, Roche began hosting events in his BedStuy apartment on Jefferson Avenue. Jefferson Avenue Performance Art Night began to take shape, and has since then expanded its horizons to warehouses, rooftops and venues around Brooklyn. Brooklyn Wildlife Brooklyn Wildlife is the media - all things indie. Avocado Johnson At Avocado Johnson we showcase talents from the worlds of Comedy, Music, and Journalism. Our aim is to educate audiences by both including and entertaining them during performances (drinks and snacks included). With events like Secret Av Club, Doughnuts & Comedy, and our Monthly Artist Cover Show Avocado Johnson makes the audience just as important as the performer. Fooju Dance Fooju Dance Collaborative brings you high-risk dance with very low stakes. Fooju’s aim is to bring the outlandish qualities of the imagination into normal places like your living room, kitchen, backyard, or lap. High caliber dancers (420 friendly) express themselves through a cabaret of millennial music tastes with perhaps surprisingly crisp choreography. Fooju first began performing in homes in January 2014 and has been accepting anywhere as a staged since. In 2017, Fooju did their first Artery show and immediately became addicted to the sense of community and collaboration. Fooju wants to make the chimerical intimately real. Home Audio Home Audio is a performance series based in Brooklyn that hosts shows of experimental music/dance/art in people's homes. The series is curated by Mara Mayer and has been hosting shows about once a month since 2011. Soon to be Happy - A Comedy Collective We’re a really sexy community of soon to be happy comedians creating comedy and space for comedy. We pride ourselves on bypassing comedy clubs, performance venues, bars, and Madison Square Garden who we can’t get off our back. There’s lots of gatekeepers in comedy. This is our resistance - to perform, grow funnier, and get gayer. Oh and we’re super gay and love diversity.

Why is this happening?

To celebrate the communities who have thought and inspired us here at Artery.

What does it feel like to grow up?

"And it’s not just the dancers who enter the fray. Trevor New, who spends most of the evening tending to the soundscape, wades through the tangled limbs of his collapsed castmates as he tells the story of finding his way into music, then nearly losing everything to a.. (gruesome hand injury)."

JOUR•NY - Round Table Salon and POD

The only thing that makes life worth living is the possibility of experiencing now and then a perfect moment. And perhaps even more than that, it's having the ability to recall such moments in their totality, to contemplate them like jewels.

- Paul Bowles, The Spider's House

JOUR•NY april 13, 14 & 15

Well, my lovelies ~ It's once again the moment for another memorable evening and this time it's very, very special indeed! And, to spread more love to more there are 3 amazing nights that we believe will satisfy curiosity cravings.

Come, come my friend to one special night.

As you walk down a New York City sidewalk enter a door, slip off your shoes and step into a Paul Bowles world, The Sheltering Sky. Unwind in a virtual Tangier with cocktail in hand and journey with us to the Sahara. Experience contrasts, an authentic ambiance within a stylized context. Let dark corners lit with lanterns guide you on a sound and silent journey. Settle in, the traditional Berber way, and let what comes envelop you. Discover the unexpected as we journey together.

May your attire be inspired by the Bowles and their eccentric comrades. Nouveau élégance, kaleidoscope print mix or desert dune decadence perhaps? Oh, and ... bring your Babouche-inspired slipper or choose to own a handcrafted authentic one from a collection handpicked by moi!

The Low Road - at the Public Theater

Trevor New- Violinist/Viola, Woodwinds, and Percussion

From Tony and Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Bruce Norris (Clybourne Park, The Pain and the Itch) comes an epic play, featuring seventeen actors in fifty roles, examining the basic beliefs upon which we’ve built our economy and our country.

Set in the 18th century, this wild new work imagines America’s first laissez-faire capitalist, a young man inspired by a chance encounter with Adam Smith to put his faith in the free market. But his path to riches becomes inextricably entangled with that of an educated slave, a man who knows from experience that one person's profit is another’s loss, in this parable about the true cost of inequality. 

Four-time Tony nominee and three-time Obie winner Michael Greif (Dear Evan Hansen, Next to Normal, Dogeaters) directs this richly imaginative, riotously funny new play about the imaginary lines between exploitation and opportunity.
