Prelude.10

PRELUDE.10 asks a blunt question that straddles funding, audience and disciplinary tensions pervasive in our contemporary performance sector: “Why Does Live Matter?” What is its purpose? How do we measure its value to individuals, to communities, and to that collector of the dead – History? Three themes over three days drive our investigation: Communication, Provocation, and Simulation.
Since live art is as much about the audience as it is about the artist, we start each day with participation.

PRELUDE 2020: Sites of Revolution

Performance Schedule of the 2020 Prelude Festival

Prelude 2020: Sites of Revolution
October 20 – October 30, 2020

Co-Curated by David Bruin and Miranda Haymon, in collaboration with Frank Hentschker
Presented by the Martin E. Segal Theatre Center (Frank Hentschker, Executive Director)

____________________________________________

The 2020 Prelude Festival, titled Sites of Revolution, will bring together artists, critics,
activists, and producers from New York City and beyond to explore the many ways in
which revolutions are taking place today. The COVID-19 pandemic has upended nearly
every aspect of life. At the same time, widespread protests—spearheaded by Black, Indigenous,
and People of Color—are challenging centuries-old white supremacy, white fragility and settler
colonialism. Against the backdrop of this collision between rapid change and obdurate inequity,
the repertoire of revolution plays out daily in the streets, on screens, inside classrooms,
between loved ones, and in our minds and processes. In tandem, artists have adapted their
work in innovative ways, redrawing the boundaries of their art forms and rethinking previously
fundamental concepts such as “theatre,” “performance,” “live,” and “time-based.”

In concert with this season of upheavals, Sites of Revolution will offer audiences a free online
platform to experience genre-bending productions inspired by this moment of revolution and
reckoning. The festival will feature a wide array of new multimedia work created by artists at the
forefront of contemporary theatre and performance, as well as a series of panels and other
events that put artistic practice in conversation with critical discourse.

The artist lineup for the 2020 Prelude Festival was previously announced but a full schedule
including further information about each piece and the artists involved can be found below.

6:30 pm EST, Get Rid of the Gala!: Artists and Arts Workers Reimagine What Could Take Its Place
Most nonprofits host an annual fundraising Gala, an event that seems to amplify every aspect of the
field’s inequity: Attendance is overwhelmingly white and rich, and artists often perform for little or no
money. This gathering of artists and arts workers seeks to reimagine the Gala and how it can reflect the
shared values of everyone who makes the work on stage possible. A panel featuring Cynthia Flowers and
Seonjae Kim, additional panelists TBA.

Torschlusspanik, Erklärungsnot, Innerer Schwienehund, Treppenwitz, Lebensmüde, Sitzfleisch,

THURSDAY, OCT. 29

misunderstood, or noxious words. After a series of brief presentations, the participants will launch out on
a lively discussion about the roles and responsibilities of criticism in this revolutionary moment. A panel
featuring Soyica Diggs Colbert, Miriam Felton-Dansky, Brain Eugenio Herrera, and Diep Tran.

7:00 pm EST, bb brecht
Performed by Miranda Haymon
After teaching tenure, writing books, and receiving consistent recognition for his federally subsidized
art-making, bb brecht is finally satisfied….and has lost all inspiration. So he’s becoming an Instagram
influencer, where he hopes to rediscover desperation, exhaustion, suffering, and the many perils of
modern life under corporate-driven capitalism. Los geht’s!

8:00 pm EST, Good Byes
Music produced and vocals by Kelsey Pyro, film and direction by Kino Galbraith
An experimental music film about the journey of letting go to create space. The original music depicts the
ending of personal friend, romantic, and familial relationships with Black men amongst the national loss of
George Floyd. Shot in Brooklyn and Minneapolis, the imagery interprets the music’s story and tone.

Co-created by Jeesun Choi and Bryn Herdrich

to talk about it. Let’s end that taboo. A storytelling project/video collage, Penny Thoughts is a digital
companion piece to BUST (Soho Rep’s Writer/Director Lab).

5:30 pm EST, Animal Empire
Co-written by Justin Aaron Halle, co-written, composed, and directed by Yeujia Low
In this one-act digital musical, animals—sick of years of mistreatment and because a speeding sheriff
accidentally kills a deer on a highway—take up arms against humans. Our pet cats claw us to death, our
dogs deafen us with non-stop barking. The locusts destroy our crops, the sparrows spread diseases, the
wild animals invade the cities… When the dust clears, will there be any humans left?

6:30 pm EST, body100
Garrett Allen + Nazareth Hassan
Tell me what you want me to do. I don’t want to negotiate. I gave you the tools. Listen to my nothingness.
Worship me, if you want. Just make sure you listen.
8:00 pm EST, Passing Time with Grace
By Le’Andra LeSeur
Passing time with Grace is an extended documented performance using video, sound, and a form of
non-linear narrative to focus on the ways in which the body responds to trauma: in stillness, in reflection,
and in unhinged movement.

9:00 pm EST, hold
Created by Mei Ann Teo, composed by Orion S. Johnstone, with collaborators You-Shin Chen,
Troy Anthony, and Matthias Neckermann
