Hosted by Annika Moller at Castle Braid
Annika Moller is a visual and performance artist based in Bushwick. After studying multiple disciplines of dance for over two decades and building a name for herself in the visual art world, she decided to combine her two passions to create a new performance art piece that has no boundaries.
In BODY MEDIUM she will create a piece on a large outstretched canvas through dance improvisation, using only paint and her body as the medium. She aims to embody the sights, sounds and energy of the audience and surrounding environment, and through this embodiment, she will imprint the moment on canvas. She encourages the audience to come with an open mind to embrace the endless possibilities of this performance

We are a casual network of Ladies who are queer friendly and like to scrimmage to our own set of rules. Can’t wait to see you at our West Village location this Fall season.

InTandem Lab’s Instructions to Decode A(n In)human transformation is a postmodern punk “roach” Kabaret inspired by Franz Kafka’s The Metamorphosis. Written in verse by Gisela Cardenas and delivered as spoken poetry by a cast of three, I2Decode explores the intertwining of live music, video mapping and words. I2Decode portrays the protagonist of The Metamorphosis, Gregor Samsa, on a high ride after his transformation into a bug. Interspersed seamlessly throughout the piece, Milica Paranosic’s wild, eerie and sensual score is played by an electronic cello, which takes the audience on a journey from the wildness of a punk rock kabaret to the subtle underscoring of the bug’s world.
11:45am at Citi Field, $105+
The Meadows Music & Arts Festival presents a two-day concert with performances by The WEEKND, LolaWolf, Kanye West, Chance the Rapper and more.
