WINTER WITNESS: RESISTANCE in New York City

Updated: 25 January 2018
WITNESS is a seasonal event made up of artists, musicians, performers, poets, activists, and writers. LGBTQI and women creatives are brought to the front for an evening of protest and relief through art. Come tonight, January 25 at 8 p.m.

Curated by Ariele Max, this quarterly event fuses activism and the cathartic release of expression. This collective fueled by creative push-back, political coiling, a gathering of truth, of anger, of love, is also a guided reminder of self-worth.

Touching on trauma, the event also encourages you to scream, rage, and allow yourself to be immersed in the discomfort of pain through art.

SAMANTHA CC

Orange Piece is a multi-sensory performance by Samantha CC. It deals with the peeling away of layers in order to get to the juice. The 20 minute piece functions as a healing ritual, and features singing and an original sound track.

ESTEFANI MERCEDES

Through a lecture based performance Stephanie Mercedes blends movement, oral history and projected image to question the singularity of memory and reveal missing violent histories. Mercedes’ performances are part of her “Luz del Día: Copyrighting the Light of Day” project that is combating copyright legislation that would erase the photographic archive from the Argentine Dictatorship.

DICK VAN DICK

Dick Van Dick is New York based rapper and designer whose rhymes and ensembles reflect the shifting sands on which identity and culture are built, pushing the audience to question everything they thought they knew about gender or race. The result is a psychedelic, sexy good time for all.
