HOWDOYOUSAYYAMINAFRICAN? self-produces two-night event at FREECANDY in Brooklyn on Thursday, May 29th and Friday, May 30th
BROOKLYN, N.Y., May 28, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- HOWDOYOUSAYYAMINAFRICAN? (http://howdoyousayyaminafrican.com) is an international collective laboratory that utilizes music, film, sculptural installation, and contemporary dance and theatre to experiment with linear narratives in order to find alternate possibilities via abstraction. In light of their recent withdrawal from the Whitney Biennial, they are self-producing a two night event of live performance, music, and screenings at FREECANDY, 905 Atlantic Avenue, Brooklyn, NY.
The role of abstraction in the contemporary black avant-garde seems necessary as we are bodies that are mis-recognized, overly-recognized, put into tiny boxes as being X or Z… It's about stepping out of social and cultural constraints of "blackness" and into the imagined future, a refusal to adhere to the idea that we can be known"
-Dawn Lundy Martin, Associate Professor of Writing at the University of Pittsburgh and HDYSYIA? Collective collaborator.
VENUE: FREECANDY, 905 Atlantic Avenue, Brooklyn, NY
DATE: May 29th –May 30th, 2014
TIME: Doors open @ 7:30PM, The Happening starts @ 8PM (Sharp)
