Evidence is a low-stakes performance night organized to showcase the various artistic backgrounds of the current M.A. candidates in Performance Studies at NYU Tisch School of the Arts. This will be one of various other performance nights organized throughout the year.
The name 'Evidence' draws upon José Muñoz's seminal 'Ephemera as Evidence.' With his presence deeply missed in the department, his influence on the staff and students still lingers. We saw his potential for queer world-making and Utopia as a call left unanswered. The image of the torch comes to represent the night, not only in its reference to NYU's insignia, but also in the idea of the the torch being passed. In our small way we hope these performances will be ephemeral pieces of evidence that said, "we were here." And, perhaps, we'll find we've created a small sense of Utopia in the process.
Our second night of performances will be held at Cloud City located at 85 N 1st St, Brooklyn, NY 11249. Doors open at 7pm.
