Emergency INDEX to be launched at The Kitchen (NYC) on March 20, 2012

Posted on

Emergency INDEX is a new yearly publication documenting performance in the words of its creators. This first volume documents 249 performances of dance, poetry, protest, theater, music, therapy, scientific research, advertising, terrorism, and more in over 500 pages and includes a comprehensive index of terms. We will celebrate the book and its contributors with a performance-filled evening at The Kitchen on March 20, 2012 beginning at 19h00.

Two of the featured performances documented in this inaugural issue, published by the Ugly Duckling Presse, are The Jewish Home Beautiful – Revisited II (hosted at the Gelber Conference Centre) and Home Beautiful – Inviting the Ancestors (hosted at the matrabox). These live art events were initiated by Devora Neumark within the cycle of her research/creation project entitled Radical Beauty for Troubled Times: the (un)making of home.
