Concept by Joseph Herring
Programmed by Joseph Herring, Kera MacKenzie, and Andrew Mausert-Mooney
RE/NIGHT/LIVE/MARE re- considers your nightmares; re- examines your daydreams; re- contextualizes pre-existing (video art? videotaped performance work? found footage?) through re- presenting, re- editing, re -mixing. Featuring works that re- search, re- consider, re- examine, re- contextualize nightmares, daydreams, flying-fancies, hyper-realities. Also included: live re- mixing pre- existing work with new live footage to re- consider it in under the cold, hard, clinical (or soft warm fuzzy *wicked grin ) light of the telematic screen.
RE/NIGHT/LIVE/MARE includes work by Alejandro Sajgalik, Antonio Anton, Arthur Tuoto, Blanca Rego, Chanhee Choi, Chris Collins, Dakota Gearhart, Danielle Zorbas, David Ian Bellows/Griess, Devin Harclerode, DSK (Juan Lesta & Belén Montero), Dxn Anahí, Eden Mitsenmacher, Francesca Fini, Heejin Jang, Isabelle McGuire, Jan & Dave, Janelle VanderKelen, Jen Clay, Katya Yakubov, Lana Z Caplan, Lauren Kimball-Brown & Julia Zinn, Lauren Valley, Leslie Rogers, Lili White, Lori Felker, Maddie Hewitt, Manuela De Laborde, Mark Kent, Nowhere Mountain, Paul Wiersbinski, Richard Haley, Tommy Becker, Usumurasaki, Vivian Ostrovsky, Yvette Granata, and Zachary Epcar.

Part 1: RE (Nov 1-7, Nov 29-Dec 5)
Four LIVE Performances
December 13th, 2016
Rehearsals of what I presume will be my favorite post-breath positions and variables
Airing LIVE from Detroit
2-2:30 pm CT
This live broadcast will take the form of lecture discussing various possibilities of using my future corpse to create sculpture. This will be an attempt to locate the state between being and becoming a thing. Weight, mass, heat, and warm fluids will be tracked from their origins as building blocks of personhood and mapped to their dissension/ascension into purely spatial attributes disavowed from the body.
Alejandro T Acierto
Airing LIVE from Chicago
Transmit 2.0 is an audio/visual broadcast work that highlights the complex relationship we have with communication technologies.
Let’s Be Friends
Airing LIVE from Miami
7:30-8 pm CT
Let’s Be Friends is a performance where The Void, an untrustworthy character that is the manifestation of being afraid of the dark, speaks directly to the audience so that they may become “friends”.
Zombie Tom Petty and the Mystery of My Dead Little Pony
Jan and Dave
Airing LIVE from Miami

Zombie Tom Petty and the Mystery of My Dead Little Pony gives us what we all need, a fighting chance to save the world from the Apocalypse; and that chance is none other than Zombie Tom Petty.
