A Conference of Works: MODE, METHOD, MEDIUM is a two-day conference during which indefinably inter-media theater companies, performance artists, choreographers, composers, playwrights, and the theorists who care come together to show work, discuss practice, read papers and manifestos, and potentially build a useful vocabulary surrounding the concept of “medium” for artists working in all or none of the performance modes traditionally and institutionally defined as Dance, Theater, and Performance Art.
Participating artists and companies include:
Handan Ozbilgin, showing part three of her MAIDS project, members of experimental music ensemble thingNY, Ben Spatz/Urban Research Theater, JJ Lind and Liz Vacco of Immediate Medium, Peruvian artist Amapola Prada and her Lima New York Project, participatory performance art-ist Carrie Dashow, cultural organizer/icon Jason Andrew, sound and movement researchers William Bilwa Costa and Martin Lanz Landazuri, Ashley Kelly-Tata of Enthuse Theater, the pyromaniacs from Aztec Economy, Melanie Armer and Chance Muehleck of Nerve Tank, GoGoVertigoat’s Lindsey Drury, and interdisciplinary practitioners Sarah Maxfield, Angela Washko, Hector Canonge, Rebecca Patek, Nate Hill, Hyatt Michaels, Gelsey Bell, Dave Thrasher, and many others!
Artists have been invited to share works-in-progress, works from their repertoire or portfolio, present artist talks (with projected video, images, and/or text if so desired), and participate in one or both of two public round-table discussions at 4pm both days.
This conference is organized by the Panoply Performance Laboratory, www.panoplylab.org, initiated by The Nerve Tank (
