As a part of the P.O.R.C.H. performance module being presented at Ponderosa Tanzland, Joy Mariama Smith has assembled a collective of diasporan artists from the USA and Europe to take part in a two week retreat entitled BLACK/OUT: a large scale performance installation about race taking place at Ponderosa Tanzland, July 20-Aug. 2, 2013.
P.O.R.C.H. Performance module uses Ponderosa's international public audience and it's space to prepare their conceptual stage. Ponderosa is teaming with activity in the month of July hosting intensive workshops, concerts, films and performances.
The Performance module uses this event, however small or large, to create some performative action each day. The module, purposely, coincides with the Ponderosa festival atmosphere. We maintain the module group by gathering everyday for at least 2 hours, to focus, physically tune our bodies or co-ordinate performance events.
Participants must be able to work within this activity and be able to spare or focus their energy. The priority is the act of performance and conversations with our chosen performance module group & coaches.
P.O.R.C.H. Performance module commits participants to dreaming-up, devising, creating and performing inclusive & spontaneous actions & events throughout the public sphere of Ponderosa. All is art, nothing is art, everything is art: We are a Multi-disciplinary-medium of Body, Music, Voice, Site-Specific, Improvisation, Visual, Video, Light, and Dance. We will encourage and stimulate an inclusive atmosphere of creativity and dialogue with our surrounding peers and public outside eye. We are a team that invites and belongs to the public body of Ponderosa.
