Enduring Apocalypse

Enduring Apocalypse: From Light til Night Isobel Chiang

Enduring Apocalypse: a 12 hour experiment presenting 50 performances by 50 artists/collectives, from 10am-10pm at the Abrons Arts Center. 

Stay for 10 minutes or stay for the full 12 hours–– audiences are invited to drop in and out of the event as they wish for the duration of the program.

Each performer will be responding to, contending with, expanding on all of the ways apocalypse befalls us, and ways to endure the ongoing man-made disasters happening to us and around us. 

This event is a demonstration, a release, a retrieval, a restoration. It is a way to be in community, and be present with place, its histories & temporalities. Each performance will hold the stage for 10 minutes, bringing an offering into the multitude, something enduring, something transient, something for the collective present; with performance styles spanning across genres, mediums, forms.

This is a practice of being in relation. As we revolve around the sun, the audience revolves, the performers too. We hope to facilitate momentary experimental grounds for artistic expression, research, study, interaction; and to feel a cathartic release–– all of which the dynamic audience witnesses.

This project is part of the City Artist Corps initiative with @nyfacurrent, @NYCulture, @QueensTheatre, and @MadeinNY. #CityArtistCorps #EnduringApocalypse
