Welcome to TBA 2018! For our first festival as PICA’s Artistic Directors, we are excited to share the work of international, national, and local artists across disciplines who offer new perspectives, reflect and respond to the times, and propose alternate possibilities, visions, and futures. We believe gathering in shared time and space—in pleasure or anger, conversation or celebration, party or protest—has the potential to be radical and healing, and that art is all of those things and more. As a curatorial team, we strive for collaboration versus consensus, we challenge ourselves and each other, and we follow artists’ leads. For TBA:18, we are thinking about what it means to be an artist, an arts worker, an audience member, an activist, a citizen, a human in relationship to society, and how—as individuals and as communities—we can stand together and create the world we want to live in, even if only for a few moments or days. We look to our elders and our youth, and to those on the margins, to help us find our way. This year’s TBA artists are responding to our social, political, and cultural moment with humor, ferocity and joy. They redefine beauty, reclaim place, and share untold stories. Using time, space, bodies, and minimal materials, they build temporary utopias and dystopias and construct ephemeral worlds with a generosity of spirit and economy of means. The work comes alive only with you there to experience it. It needs your spirit. TBA itself is a weird and wonderful experience that asks us to embody and disembody, critique our conditions, question our existence, examine our role, expand our community, and merge art and life for a long week in late summer. From performances and exhibitions, to lectures and meals, to processionals and parties, we encourage you to immerse yourself in infinite possibilities—bring your people, find your people, look and listen, scream and whisper, walk the talk, wake up early, stay up late, push your limits, broaden your perceptions, open up. As you dive into the pages ahead, we hope you will be inspired not only by the artists in the festival but by our new design which reflects the ongoing evolution of our organization. TBA is for all of us, and PICA is for the people—artists, audiences, volunteers, staff, crew, supporters, partners, and friends. We encourage a culture of YES, and invite you to be part of it. We welcome conversation. We welcome feedback. We welcome you and yours.

Join friends and artists in toasting the first night of TBA:18 at the festival’s Opening Night Dinner! Chefs Matt Howard and Jeremy Larter (Field Day Feasts and Gatherings) will cook a spectacular family-style meal that embodies the farm-to-table movement that has shaped Portland’s culinary landscape for the past decade. These talented chefs created a plentiful menu, featuring Baharat-spiced chicken with smoked Japanese eggplant, mild habañero, hen egg bottarga; charred cauliflower with oil-poached ceci bean, mustard greens, roasted Interlaken grapes and sesame dukkah—with gluten-free/vegan options and much more. Immediately following dinner, head into our TBA Late Night hub to dance the night away with The Beautiful Street.

swallow is a multi-channel video installation of visual gestures from contemporary television and film exploring parts of black femme existence considered less desirable for consumption. what resistance sits wet and warm in the offal? swallow considers the different imperatives around consumption that exist for black bodies and what it feels like to hunger for things that catch in your throat. how do we read black femme queerness into, underneath and behind these visual spaces? how does it look, feel, and sound, to open things up so that we can fit inside? ariella tai is a video artist, film scholar, and independent programmer from queens, new york. they are interested in the materiality of black bodies and black performance as vernaculars which subvert, interrupt or defy the diegetic cohesiveness of narrative. they currently re-appropriate, glitch and video process existing media in attempts to rupture and reconstruct some of the messier emotional realities of black femme existence. they are one half of “the first and the last,” a fellowship, workshop and screening series supporting and celebrating the work of black women and femmes in film, video and new media art.

Nat Turner Project (NTP) functions as a radical space seeking to fill a void in Portland, Oregon, one of the least diverse metropolitan cities in America. NTP allows artists of color to go beyond the usual expositions inherent in presenting the art of marginalized perspectives to a dominant culture; allowing them the freedom to create or express their own language within and without the parameters of racial commodification or designation. NTP creates an environment of inclusivity—a communal harbor for artists previously silenced by institutional constraints—and actively provides them spatial priority. Nat Turner Project is made up of Melanie Stevens and maximiliano. Melanie has a background in Political Science, drawing, and sequential art. maximiliano does performance, installation, and poetry. They each bring a variety of skill sets to the project, ranging from curatorial and 014 organizational experience to social practice and public relations.

Milka Djordjevich (Los Angeles, California)

10

Perfectly unleashed … with a brazen, sensual and blessedly chaotic force. — The New York Times

9

Questioning contemporary dance’s predisposition towards neutrality, authenticity, and the desexualization of the female body, ANTHEM embraces theatricality, virtuosity, and sass. The work weaves together vernacular dance styles to explore labor, play, and feminine posturing. Four women execute a repetitive, complex set of movements that evolve as each rotates hypnotically within the confines of a square. Over time, the meditative rigor of their steps dissolves into a tangle of commotion, blurring the distinction between the mundane and the glamorous. Milka Djordjevich is a choreographer, performer, and teacher based in Los Angeles, CA. Her work has been shown at many venues, including the Kitchen, the Chocolate Factory Theater, the Whitney Museum, the American Realness Festival, and Danspace Project in New York; REDCAT, Grand Performances, Pieter, the Hammer Museum, Machine Project, Showbox LA/Bootleg Theater, and HomeLA in Los Angeles; Counterpulse and the Berkeley Art Museum in Northern California; and internationally in Austria, France, Germany, Italy, Macedonia, Poland, Serbia, and the UK. Djordjevich was a 2006-2007 Movement Research Artist-in-Residence and a 2008/2010 danceWEB Europe Scholar, and she is currently a 20172018 Princeton University Hodder Fellow. Her other projects include serving as guest editor for Movement Research’s Critical Correspondence and initiating the Monday Morning Class series at Pieter. Djordjevich has co-authored works with composer Chris Peck, choreographer Dragana Bulut, designer Samuel Yang, and artist Marcos Lutyens; and has performed for Heather Kravas, Jennifer Monson, Elizabeth Ward, Sam Kim, Saša Asentić and Ana Vujanović, among others. She has twice served as Visiting Assistant Professor in the UC Riverside Dance Department and has taught at UC Irvine, AMDA, Pomona College, Movement Research, and PICA’s TBA:15 Festival. In 2016, Djordjevich established STANA, an organization cultivating Los Angeles, national and international dance connections. www.thisismilka.com

ANTHEM premiered October 2017 at the Los Angeles Exchange (LAX) Festival and is commissioned by the Chocolate Factory Theater and Los Angeles Performance Practice. ANTHEM was made possible in part by the Lewis Center for the Arts at Princeton University, a Pennington Dance Group SPACE 016 GRANT @ ARC Pasadena and the Z. Clark Branson Foundation.

LET ‘IM MOVE YOU SERIES SELECTIONS:

7 A STUDY AND THIS IS A SUCCESS jumatatu m. poe & Jermone Donte Beacham (Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and Houston, Texas)

9

Let ‘im Move You is a series of works choreographed by jumatatu m. poe & Jermone Donte Beacham that stem from the artists’ seven-year research into J-Sette performance—the performance of joy and the conundrum of Black joy. The series currently consists of three live performance works and an installation. A Study uses J-Sette movement and performance structures as jumping-off points for experimentation with the role of strategy in collaborative creation and presentation. Rhythm, pattern, and attention become mechanisms for the artists to situate themselves in play, and to frame a movement conversation with primarily White audiences. This Is a Success explores J-Sette in relation to notions of AfricanAmerican exceptionalism as expressed through middle-class, Black American values reiterated within the J-Sette form. The work continues the artists’ research of rhythm as a vehicle into subversion and satisfaction.

jumatatu m. poe is a choreographer, performer, and educator based between Philadelphia and New York City who grew up dancing around the living room and at parties with his siblings and cousins. His early exposure to concert dance was through African dance and capoeira performances on California college campuses, but he did not start formal dance training until college with Umfundalai, Kariamu Welsh’s contemporary African dance technique. His work continues to be influenced by various sources, including his foundations in those living rooms and parties, early technical training in contemporary African dance, continued study of contemporary dance and performance, and recent sociological research of and technical training in J-Setting with Jermone Donte Beacham. He produces dance and performance work with idiosynCrazy productions, a company he founded in 2008 and now co-directs with Shannon Murphy. Jermone Donte Beacham started taking dancing seriously while he was in high school and was introduced to the world of J-Sette by women. J-Sette historically refers to Jackson State University’s female drill team that began in the 1970s. They “created” the dance style, and thus far have made it a distinctive form of dance. Donte became seriously interested in this type of dance when he saw a group of males performing it. Currently, he has his own J-Sette line, Mystic Force. Previously, he served as co-captain of Dallas’ Texas Teasers. He has participated and competed in several events and competitions, including two SetteItOff video challenges, Atlanta Pride 2010, Tennessee Classics 2009, and Memphis Pride 2008. In 2015, he was named New Legendary by the Meet Me on the Dance Floor J-Sette council, and has 018 gained many titles since then, such as "Best Dancer" and "Most Entertaining."

Kaneza Schaal (New York, New York)

JACK & is a stand-up routine turned sitcom baking fiasco that mingles cakes and kitchen disasters, recipes and remedies, jokes and goldfish to paint the portrait of a dream interrupted and resumed. The comedy of errors is structured on social codes and training, from prison reentry programs to debutante balls. The performance considers rentery to society after prison, focusing not the time one has served but the measure of one’s dreaming that is given to the state. “Jack” works the night shift at an industrial bakery. He returns home to bake a cake for his wife “Jill”; “Jack” ends up whirling through a dance—part dream, part ritual—re-entering his own internal life. The performance draws on aspirational class stories like those in The Honeymooners and Amos & Andy; the paintings of Agnes Martin, Ellen Gallagher and Ruth Asawa; tigers in Harlem; real and imagined entering society ceremonies like Cotillion balls; and markers of transition from John Canoe traditions, to the mirroring and mimicry found in African American dance pageantry of the late nineteenth century. Directed by Kaneza Schaal and starring Cornell Alston, the performance explores markers of transition and transformation and the liminal spaces that bridge worlds. Sept. 8 performance is ASL interpreted Kaneza Schaal is a New York City based theater artist. Her recent work GO FORTH premiered at PS122 and then showed at the Genocide Memorial Amphitheater in Kigali, Rwanda; LMCC’s River-to-River Festival; Contemporary Arts Center New Orleans; Cairo International Contemporary Theater Festival in Egypt; and at her alma mater Wesleyan University, CT. Schaal received a 2018 Ford Foundation Art For Justice Bearing Witness award, 2017 MAP Fund award, 2016 Creative Capital Award, and is an Aetna New Voices Fellow at Hartford Stage. JACK & was co-commissioned by PICA, Walker Art Center, REDCAT, On The Boards, and Center for Contemporary Art Cincinnati and will show at Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago and Brooklyn Academy of Music. Her new work in development, CARTOGRAPHY, was workshopped through New Victory Theater Lab, NYU Abu Dhabi, and The Kennedy Center’s New Vision New Voices. kanezaschaal.com

SOME STYLES OF MASCULINITY Gregg Bordowitz (New York, New York)

8

Curated by Stephanie Snyder, Anne and John Hauberg Curator and Director, Douglas F. Cooley Memorial Art Gallery

9

Some Styles of Masculinity is a monologic journey that unfolds in three interconnected chapters over three consecutive evenings entitled: Rock Star, Rabbi, and Comedian. Under the guise of The Benjamin Zev Show—equal parts television variety show, Catskill stand-up, bar mitzvah midrash, and punk-rock listening session—Bordowitz adroitly improvises each performance’s preoccupations into a humorous and heartfelt examination of his queer masculinity and life as an artist, writer, professor, and cultural observer. Some Styles of Masculinity was originally commissioned for "Trigger: Gender as a Tool and a Weapon" at the New Museum, New York (September 27, 2017—January 21, 2018), curated by Johanna Burton with Sara O’Keeffe and Natalie Bell. The work is produced for TBA by the Reed College Theatre Department and the Cooley Gallery. Creative consultant: Morgan Bassichis. Gregg Bordowitz is an award-winning artist, writer, and activist. His films have shown internationally in screenings and exhibitions at museums including: The New Museum, NY; Artist Space, NY; TATE Modern, UK; and MoMA, NY. Bordowitz is the author of many books, including: The AIDS Crisis is Ridiculous and Other Writings, 1986–2003. He was a member of the groundbreaking AIDS activist group ACT UP, and a founding member of the 1980s film collective Testing the Limits. He is the recipient of a Rockefeller Intercultural Arts Fellowship and a John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Fellowship. Bordowitz is the Director of the Low-Residency Master of Fine Arts program at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. He comes to Reed College as a Stephen E. Ostrow Distinguished 022 Visitor in the Arts.

7 HABITUS Ann Hamilton (Columbus, Ohio) 8

15 16

Converge 45 presents Ann Hamilton’s habitus, at Centennial Mills Pavilion on the waterfront of the Willamette river in Portland, Oregon. Inspired by one of the earliest human technologies, cloth making, the title, habitus refers to clothing, customs of dress, social patterns, and what Hamilton calls “the commonness of cloth.” A field of suspended curtains are turned by rope and pulley or animated by air’s movements. Wind might dwarf the mechanical action of a hand pulling and releasing the ropes at one moment. At another, human effort coaxes the static drag of cloth’s weight to circle and surround. Part cause and effect, part nature and culture, part individual and collective, this landscape invites social interactions and reciprocity. As cloth swaddles us at birth and covers us in sleep; as a folded blanket can tell a story of trade; as a flag carries the symbol of a nation, Hamilton’s multi-venue exhibition invites us to touch and be touched by the fabric of human experience. Originally commissioned by The Fabric Workshop and Museum in 2016 for the historic waterfront at Pier 9 in Philadelphia, Ann Hamilton re-sites elements of habitus in relation to Portland’s civic history and places a model of the city built in the 1970s at the center of the work. Created at a moment of urban renewal, this architectural representation is flanked by long shelves of literary excerpts related to dwelling, shelter and sanctuary. These commonplace pages were contributed by the public through an open call for submissions which continues throughout the run of the exhibition via habitus-a-commonplace.tumblr.com.

024 Installed in Portland by Converge 45 for US West Coast Premiere during TBA.

Combining a Dr. Strangelove-inspired performance with a daring forum for public conversation, Unexploded Ordnances (UXO) explores aging, anxiety, hidden desires, and how to look forward when the future is uncertain. Adopting the characters of a bombastic general and an ineffectual president, Peggy Shaw and Lois Weaver of the performance troupe Split Britches lace this interactive piece with playful urgency and lethargy, to encourage discussion about the political landscape. In the “Situation Room,� twelve audience members are invited to become a Council of Elders to discuss the global issues of the day, as the company weaves in satirical insights and humor. The two pioneering theatre-makers see undisturbed ordnances as a metaphor for the disregarded potential in elders, and hope to uncover buried resources in us all.

9 10 Equally funny and heartbreaking, Soft Goods lays bare the beauty and brutality of backstage culture. Performed by an ensemble of stage technicians and dancers, and structured as a live load-in and technical rehearsal for a performance that never happens, the show illuminates the lonesomeness of theaters, the spectral elegance of a lighting focus, the choreography of labor, and the labor of dance. Soft Goods is a meditation on work, life, loss, and occupational self-obliteration.

VINYL EQUATIONS

Syd Barrett and Nina Simone. Curtis Mayfield and Richard Nixon. These are some of the radically differing voices juxtaposed within Vinyl Equations, a performance that presents a series of vinyl records in unusual combinations to generate the beginnings of an alternative, non-linear, non-genre based history of recorded music, in strictly analog terms. Accompanied by a single record turntable, artist and writer Robin Deacon will share a collection of stories, lectures, and possible dance routines that aim to uncover strange echoes and oblique similarities between the records he has chosen for analysis. From describing his childhood fear of Joy Division album covers to the contemporary search for an obscure record of Caribbean folk songs featuring the voice of his mother, Vinyl Equations shifts between the realms of direct autobiographical account and fictional speculation in an approach that has come to characterize Deacon’s work.

Robin Deacon (born 1973, Eastbourne, England) is a British artist, writer and filmmaker currently based in the USA. Active from the 1990s, his work explores questions of memory, absence and fiction in performance, through a constant reconfiguration of his role as an artist—as journalist and biographer, operator and technician, imposter and stooge. His recent research projects have explored histories of video documentation and outmoded media formats, and the practice and ethics of performance re-enactment. His live- and screen-based work has been commissioned and programmed throughout Europe, the US, and Asia. A MacDowell Fellow, he has been a recipient of a variety of awards and fellowships from organizations such as the Delfina Foundation, British Arts Council, Live Art Development 032 Agency, and Franklin Furnace, Inc.

SASSAFRAS, CYPRESS & INDIGO— BLACK IMAGES AND THE (E)MOTIVE NOTION OF FREAKINESS Vaginal Davis (Germany)

VAGINAL DAVIS 2018

Davis’ performances are giddy, satirical stabs at the old-world order, levelling criticism at white privilege and the patriarchy with nuanced wit and game-show-style camp. The Vaginal Davis persona is a complex mixture of queercore punk antics and MGM studio glamour, reflecting Davis’ socially engaged and aesthetically consistent interests. — art21magazine

Sassafras, Cypress & Indigo—Black Screen Images and the (e)motive Notion of Freakiness is a lecture performance by Vaginal Davis, the internationally-revered, intersexed doyenne of intermedia arts and sciences. She takes public discourse to Dementia 13 levels as she spells out the queer and blatino experience in her own inimitable fashion, creating new words out of thin air and crashing, bull-in-a-Madame-Mau-china-shop style, over notions of propriety and reality. In short, her work can be described as disheveled, humorous, and rebellious. This lecture is held on the occasion of Vaginal Davis’s solo exhibition An Invitation to the Dance at Adams and Ollman Gallery on view through October 20, 2018. Vaginal Davis also has work in BETWEEN.. Please see page 060 for more information.

Ms. Davis hosted and curated Rising Stars, Falling Stars for over ten years and is now overseeing the regular performative film event Contemporary Vinegar Syndrome at Arsenal. She has taught her spiky brand of performance art as a guest professor at Lund UniversityMalmo Art Academy, Sweden, Justus Liebig Universität Gießen, Goethe Universität Frankfurt, Harvard, and NYU. Originally from Los Angeles, California, where she never learned to drive a car, she has been living in 036 stylish exile in Berlin since 2005.

Raquel André was born in Caneças, Portugal in 1986. Her first performance was created through her discovery of a box full of handwritten letters from the ‘70s, ‘80s and ‘90s. André has since cultivated an interest in collecting—particularly in the performing arts—and in 2016, she completed her master’s thesis at University Federal of Rio de Janeiro on the subject. André studied in the Theater and Film School of Lisbon, and worked with several Portuguese artists from different artistic practices. Her work has been shown on television, and in Portugal, Spain, Poland, Cuba, Argentina, and Brazil.

Between Lisbon, Ponta Delgada, Rio de Janeiro, Loulé, Minde, Paredes de Coura, Sever do Vouga, Ovar, Manaus, Barreiro, Bergen, Stavanger, Oslo, and Warsaw, Raquel André has collected 167 lovers (as of July 2018) . People of all nationalities, genders and ages agree to meet her in an unfamiliar apartment to build a fictional intimacy within the span of an hour. Throughout each city she travels, the collection grows. These encounters are documented by photograph, to serve as content for an ever-evolving performance. Collection of Lovers serves as a seemingly infinite archive. Throughout this peculiar body of work, André falls into a new abyss each time the door opens to a new lover, and fiction and reality become irresistibly entwined.

...imaginative, resourceful, witty, defiant...haven't been so deeply moved by a new piece in ages. — National Sawdust Contralto is a work for video, strings, and percussion featuring a cast of transgender women who speak, sing, and perform vocal exercises, accompanied by a dense and varied musical score that includes conventional and "non-musical" approaches to sound-making. It is not widely known that trans women's voices are unaffected by higher levels of estrogen. Being a woman with a "male voice" can create a variety of difficult situations for trans women, including prolonged and intensified dysphoria, plus a higher risk of harassment and violence. "Contralto"—defined in musical terms as "the lowest female singing voice"—uses the sound of trans women's voices to explore transfeminine identity from the inside, and examines the intimate, peculiar relationship between gender and sound.

ALBUM

ALBUM is a solo performance that unites text, song, and dance inside of the content of an album—a picture album, a song album, an autobiographical album, a herstorical album—and the work finds ways to be an archive, or altar, for Valencia’s body. Through factual, humorous, and grave observations, a frame of self-identification is established and charged with the task to preserve and perform a self herstory as an album in image and song. Valencia’s relationship to urbanity, vampires, love, and marginality arise with equal importance as she orbits the primary curiosity: Who will write herstory? ALBUM starts this process—so the author of Valencia’s herstory can have good notes.

Sanity TV investigates the flexible boundaries of identity and psyche through a fictional talk show wherein there is no distinction between sanity or insanity. The interviews begin routinely, then slowly unravel toward something unrecognizable. The “guest” ultimately surrenders a position of authority, even if that authority is beyond their own ideas of self, if only for the duration of the interview.

Autumn Knight is an interdisciplinary artist working with performance, installation and text. Her performance work has been exhibited at various institutions in the United States, including DiverseWorks (TX), Crystal Bridges Museum (AR), The New Museum (NY), The Contemporary Art Museum Houston (TX), Institute of Contemporary Art at VCU and a solo exhibition at Krannert Art Museum (IL). Knight has been Artist in Residence with In-Situ (Brierfield, UK), Galveston Artist Residency (TX), YICA (Yamaguchi, Japan), Artpace (TX), The Studio Museum in Harlem (New York City, USA) and PICA's Creative Exchange Lab. She attended the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture and holds an MA in 044 Drama Therapy from New York University.

GREGG BORDOWITZ 2018

I Wanna Be Well is the first retrospective of the work of renowned American artist, activist, writer, and educator Gregg Bordowitz. The exhibition features Bordowitz’s seminal films and activist materials; rarely-seen sculptures and drawings; books, essays, and poetry; personal ephemera; and recent performance films. The title of the exhibition pays homage to the infamous punk band The Ramones, and to their 1977 album Rocket To Russia. Born in Brooklyn in 1964 and raised in Long Island, Queens, Bordowitz moved to Manhattan’s East Village when he was eighteen and came of age during America’s last great analog era. Over the last thirty years, Bordowitz has marshaled his prodigious intellect and artistic vision to analyze and confront oppression, shame, prejudice, and death— working across interrelated forms including film, essays, poetry, lectures, plays, and live performance. These investigations have allowed Bordowitz to assume different subject positions while addressing illness, existence, and love with profound intimacy and introspection. Bordowitz’s films, writings, and performances share a concern with pedagogies of healing and learning, while embracing doubt and vulnerability. Gregg Bordowitz is an award-winning artist, writer, and activist. His films have shown internationally in screenings and exhibitions at museums including: The New Museum, NY; Artists Space, NY; TATE Modern, UK; and MoMA, NY. Bordowitz is the author of many books, including The AIDS Crisis is Ridiculous and Other Writings, 1986–2003. He was a member of the groundbreaking AIDS activist group ACT UP, and a founding member of the 1980s film collective Testing the Limits. He is the recipient of a Rockefeller Intercultural Arts Fellowship and a John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Fellowship. Bordowitz is the Director of the Low-Residency Master of Fine Arts program at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. He comes to Reed College as a Stephen E. Ostrow Distinguished Visitor in the Arts. POETRY READING Date Sept. 13 at 6:30 PM Location Reed College Chapel, Eliot Hall Sponsored by the Visiting Writer Series, Reed College English Department.

UTOPIAN VISIONS ART FAIR Portland, Oregon

Utopian Visions Art Fair (UVAF) is a platform for artists, gallerists, and curators to present projects that are speculative and working towards possible futures. Art fairs allow transparency for conversations around the art world’s reliance on capitalist systems—how do we free art from a system that both gives art its value but also makes it powerless? These are the types of dialogues that UVAF will explore, while presenting dozens of artists' projects in an intimate setting.

AWAITING OBLIVION—TEMPORARY SOLUTIONS FOR SURVIVING THE DYSTOPIAN FUTURE WE FIND OURSELVES WITHIN AT PRESENT

7 8

Tim Smith-Stewart | Jeffrey Azevedo (Seattle, Washington)

9

Blurring the lines between fiction and reality, Awaiting Oblivion—Temporary Solutions for surviving the dystopian future we find ourselves within at present follows the story of AO, an anonymous street artist who has tasked artists Tim Smith-Stewart and Jeffrey Azevedo to create a performance that will share AO’s “temporary solutions” for existing within the brutality of our neoliberal empire. Inspired by creative processes developed by the '60s Fluxus art movement, each “temporary solution” is a poem contained in a Flux-kit (a cigar box collaged with stenciled imagery and typewritten letters). We follow Tim, Jeffrey, and AO in a radical flurry of street art, secret messages, and performance scores in a poetic fight for survival.

Awaiting Oblivion... was commissioned through the On the Boards Performance Production program,

050 which was funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.

With spare aesthetics and focused intensity, choreographer Nacera Belaza invites the audience into an immersive experience through her vision and artistic process. Compagnie Nacera Belaza takes us on a journey through a trio of introspective, meditative and transcendent dance works, (whose titles translate as as The Night, The Crossing, and The Wire), revealing the evolution of her work as one would experience three different paintings by a single artist in a gallery. Born in Algeria, Nacera Belaza has been living in France since the age of five. Following her studies in modern literature at the Université de Reims, Belaza created her own dance company in 1989. In January, 2015 she was appointed Knight of the order of Arts and Letters by the French Ministry of Culture. She enters dance as a self-taught interpreter, and develops a choreography that originates in an inner progress—a sensory awareness of the body, of space and of the emptiness inside herself. Her path resembles a quest, and tends towards the enhancement of the direct bond between the dancer and the spectator, open to the sense of the infinite of the stage. Each element of her pieces—light, space, time, body—responds to each other on stage to develop their own designs. With the repetition of the gesture, its infinite slowness, the stretching out of time, Belaza’s pieces all explore movement as one would explore a calm, a profound and continuous breath. Belaza’s desire to share and pass on has become focused on the relationship between the audiences and their territories.

AFTER

Andrew Schneider (New York, New York)

8

Hallucinatory. Psychotropic. Miraculous. A show like Andrew Schneider’s After invites baroque descriptors. But I should probably just tell you that for most of the show, I thought the stage was floating. The stage was not floating. — The New York Times

9

Andrew Schneider and his team follow up their revolutionary, OBIE award-winning tech-theater masterpiece YOUARENOWHERE, with a mind-bending examination of what constitutes a single life, and the endless possible outcomes at the precise moment of death. Collaborators Kedian Keohan, Bobby McElver, Peter Musante, and Alicia ayo Ohs join Schneider to continue their characteristic exploration of hyper-precise design. They command thrilling light and sound effects with skilled physical performance, beset by a rapidfire flow of text that blends pathos and humor. From the spellbinding chaos of digital machinations and pulsating sensory extremes emerges a poignant show that urges a shared consciousness about where we are, how we got here, and what comes AFTER.

15

AFTER is a co-commission of EMPAC/Experimental Media and Performing Arts Center, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and Performance Space 122 with support from the Jerome Foundation and Rockefeller Brothers Fund. AFTER was developed in residence at EMPAC Rensselaer as well as during a residency at Baryshnikov Arts Center, and as part of Lower Manhattan Cultural Council’s Process Space program.

PELLÉAS & MÉLISANDE: A VAUDEVILLE SYMBOLIST DUODRAMA

8

Meg Whiteford and Tim Reid (Los Angeles, California)

9 10 Loosely based on the original turn-of-the-century play by Maurice Maeterlinck, Pelléas & Mélisande is about love, silence, and the ineffable nature of human emotion. It bears the fluctuating trait of tragicomedy, and involves timekeeping, constant weeping, and the symbolism that epitomized the original play. As Pelléas & Mélisande engages a mystery it does not understand, the writers hope their audience might slip into this story, to find a new and surprising way to commune.

BETWEEN. highlights artists working within the queer and trans diaspora, and the unique voices coming from between or beyond the binary. This exhibition aims to queer the curatorial process, taking into account current visibility politics and presenting the work of LGBTQIA2S+ artists in ways that challenge normative art world conventions. Chris E. Vargas and The Museum of Trans Hirstory & Art (MOTHA) present the fourth installment of his ongoing project Trans Hirstory in 99 Objects: Transvideo Store, a selection of contemporary short art films made by trans (or trans-adjacent) artists to examine a variety of ways trans stories and experiences have been represented on screen, both from outside and within their community. Accompanying these media works will be an exhibition of work by visual artists— selected through a dialogue-based, research-and-sourcing process that touched a wide network of queer artists and writers—with the intention to broaden curatorial authorship and directly serve the community whose historically significant cultural contributions have driven the arts and shaped contemporary thought. The exhibiting artists explore narratives of identity, ranging from personal observation and portraiture to performative spaces of transformation and fantasy. Featuring artwork from Vaginal Davis, MOTHA, Zanele Muholi, Christina Quarles, Jordan Reznick, Jacolby Satterwhite, and Vivek Shraya. Trans Hirstory in 99 Objects: Transvideo Store featuring films by: Malic Amalya, eduardo restrepo castaño, Erica Cho, Cary Cronenwett, Zackary Drucker & Rhys Ernst, Xena Ellison, Reina Gossett, Josef Kraska, Sierra Tucker.

Organized by Visiting Artistic Director Libby Werbel, the programming invites a range of artistic voices to ask questions about how the Museum can become more artist-centered and inclusive in its practices. Each exhibit invites audiences to think critically about how museums have traditionally granted access to art and knowledge, and what the future of this institutional model could look like. 061

TBA Food brings together chefs, cooks, and artists who make space for community and inquiry through their creative practices. This year, featured vendors will offer snacks and meals through our late night pop-up restaurant at PICA. This space forms the backdrop for The Patio—a space where artists and audiences gather throughout the day and night to relax, connect, eat, and drink. TBA Food includes a panel discussion on the intersection of art, food, and community, and a special edition of Portland’s beloved Tender Table. TBA Food embodies PICA’s commitment to social justice and local economy. We support immigrant-owned businesses and creative projects that offer a platform for underrepresented voices in the art and food industries, and invite Festival audiences to experience Portland’s culinary landscape from new perspectives. This program was organized by Spencer Byrne-Seres.

The Big Elephant Kitchen Many years back, Fiji was a British colony where Indians were brought to farm sugarcane. Having lived most of their lives in Fiji, these farmers decided to stay there when their contracts were up. Because of this, the cultures of the Native Polynesian Fijians and those of the Indian immigrants eventually began to commingle, giving us Indian curry variants, with an islander twist. The Big Elephant Kitchen happily brings their home-cooked Fijian/ Indian food to Portland. Their chef, also the owner’s mother, cooks each dish using her homemade masala; they use all fresh ingredients, cut and ground right there in the restaurant. Platano Rising Platano Rising is a small AfroCaribbean food company in Portland, Oregon. Chef Arlyn Frank is from Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, a vibrant and active city in the Caribbean. She recreates meals from her family dinners, to tell the story of the experience of the African diaspora in America. Since opening in February of 2018, Platano Rising

S1 at TBA is especially poignant given the 2016 Ghost Ship fire in Oakland, California, which resulted in new laws and regulations that have impacted artist-run spaces and artist communities around the country.

No exception to these pressures, S1 is considering the future of how to share and experience art together. Bringing the spirit of their programming to TBA is just the beginning.

During the writing of the poem, the settler colonial nation-state elected the 45th president of this colonized country, which revealed a sudden revival of extreme white supremacist nationalism. As the social landscape evolved, the Liberated Poem emerged as an offering to Indigenous communities and landscapes that strive for a decolonial and sovereign future, emancipated from white supremacist capitalist heteropatriarchal settler colonial trauma drama. This performance poem is a reflection on queer sex, survival and death politics, indigenous identity, settler and heteronormative romanticism, environmental injustice, and the importance of honoring community.

Originally created in response to the void of women and non-binary DJs in dance spaces and on music bills, its creators wanted to sweat, make out, scream, and throw their shirts off to music, to feel the confirmation of sexual freedom while also seeing the visibility and work of incredible artists. JUDY is dedicated to supporting Queer community through nightlife. 080 SHOUT OUT TO ALL THE JUDYS, JUDES AND COOL ASS FREAKS.

THE LAST ARTFUL, DODGR

7

(Portland, Oregon)

8 9

...it’s hard not to hear echoes of the L.A. rap landscape in Dodgr's music: Kendrick’s melodic moments, Vince Staples’ barbed delivery, the sing-songy cadence of Boogie. Still, Dodgr’s voice is a distinctive instrument, a sharp, nasal sound that she bends into a variety of shapes. More so than with her peers, it’s hard to draw a line between her rapping and singing—in her hands, everything feels guided by a strong sense of melody. — Pitchfork

10 11

One of the brightest voices on the Portland hip-hop scene is Alana Chenevert, aka The Last Artful, Dodgr. Her name is a nod to her hometown of Los Angeles, a pun on its baseball team, a reference to Oliver Twist, and it illustrates a life spent dodging bullets. Since arriving in Portland in 2013, she’s made the city her own and has quickly become a rising star. Press and fans have compared her to Chance the Rapper, Missy Elliott, and Dizzee Rascal with lyrics inspired by Sufjan Stevens. While we’re always sad to see the festival end, brilliant hip-hop delivered by a queer black woman is the perfect way to say ‘until next year.’ Born and raised in L.A. but based in Portland, Alana Chenevert became left-field rapper/singer The Last Artful, Dodgr when she moved up the Left Coast. Chenevert grew up in the middle of Los Angeles, with one of her earliest memories being a drive-by shooting that left her brother bleeding on the porch. She was only three years old, and her brother survived, but this kind of crime drove the young MC indoors, where she recorded her debut mixtape, 199NVRLND (2013). That same year, she moved to Portland, where her tape caught the ear of the local Fresh Selects. In 2015, Dodgr released the Fractures EP with production from Neill Von Tally. A year later, she partnered with Australian beatmaker DJ WNTD for the single "Squadron" and released the collaborative EP Rare Treat with Myke Bogan. Preceded by the lead single "Oofda," Chenevert and Von Tally released the collaborative LP Bone Music in early 2017 via Eyrst. Her single "Win Is Enough" was released in July 2018 on her own 082 PARTySIZE imprint.

Each year, the TBA Festival connects audiences to renowned and radical artists and thinkers of our time. The Institute is an immersive home for rigorous public programs that highlight the social relevance, political urgency, personal investigations, cultural context, and aesthetic inquiries driving this year’s TBA artists and projects. Daily conversations, happy hours, workshops, and more provide space and opportunity for all to participate in the festival on a deeper level. For venue addresses, see pg. 099 or visit pica.org.

Workshop BIG BODY, WITH JUMATATU M. POE 10:00 AM-12:00 PM at New Expressive Works $5-$15 sliding scale J-Sette, also known as Bucking, is a performance style popular in the southern United States, practiced widely among majorettes and drill teams at historically Black colleges and universities, and also among teams of primarily queer men who compete in gay clubs and pride festivals. The workshop focuses on bombastic performance energy, complex relationships to rhythm and music, movement precision, group dynamics, and discovering joy in flesh and community. We will explore how the performance of J-Sette creates expectations around attention and accountability to a community, and how it positions leadership. All bodies are encouraged to participate, regardless of previous training or ability. ALL LEVELS. CAPACITY: 30 Conversation KAREN SHERMAN

INTRODUCING THE TBA GUEST SCHOLARS

MEET THE ARTISTS: CREATIVE EXCHANGE LAB

Andrew J. Brown/Sister James received their Ph.D. in Performance Studies from Northwestern University and is Assistant Professor of Performance Art at Fairhaven College of Interdisciplinary Studies at Western Washington University. They are currently working on a book project titled Staging Statelessness: Queer African Refugees and the Limits of Belonging. The book draws on seven years of in-depth performance collaboration with queer asylum seekers in South Africa and argues for quotidian aesthetic performances as strategic practices of unbelonging that propose alternative configurations of citizenship, subjectivity, and community. Their work has been published in Women and Performance,Theatre Survey, Performing Arts Resources, and Theatre Research International. As a research-based performance artist, their practice ranges from ethnographic, socially engaged ensemble work to conceptual solo performance— in orderto question and disrupt conventional expectations of what is human, animate, natural, or valuable. @sisterjames
