Knowledge Of Wounds presents Raven Chacon

Access Provision: Live ASL interpretation will be provided during the conversation.

Organized by S.J Norman (Wiradjuri) and Joseph M. Pierce (Cherokee Nation Citizen) Knowledge of Wounds (KoW) is an autonomous gathering space, a ceremony, a fire, a calling to vibrate in good relations across Indigenous time and space. In this iteration of ongoing programming at Performance Space New York, KoW presents a solo, improvisational noise performance by composer Raven Chacon (Diné), followed by a conversation with scholar and sound artist Hayden Ryan (Yuin).

Raven Chacon is a composer, performer and installation artist from Fort Defiance, Navajo Nation. As a solo artist, Chacon has exhibited, performed, or had works performed at LACMA, The Renaissance Society, San Francisco Electronic Music Festival, REDCAT, Vancouver Art Gallery, Haus der Kulturen der Welt, Borealis Festival, SITE Santa Fe, Chaco Canyon, Ende Tymes Festival, and The Kennedy Center. As a member of Postcommodity from 2009-2018, he co-created artworks presented at the Whitney Biennial, documenta 14, Carnegie International 57, as well as the 2-mile long land art installation Repellent Fence.

Chacon has appeared on more than eighty releases on various national and international labels. Since 2004, he has mentored over 300 high school Native composers in the writing of new string quartets for the Native American Composer Apprenticeship Project (NACAP).

Chacon is the recipient of numerous awards, including the 2022 Pulitzer Prize in Music for his composition Voiceless Mass, and is a 2023 MacArthur Fellow.

Hayden Ryan is a Yuin sound artist and scholar from the South East Coast of New South Wales, Australia. He is currently studying a Master of Music in Music Technology at New York University, focusing on the integration of immersive and generative audio technologies with Indigenous sonic and spatial relationships. His research explores both the indigenisation and decolonisation of audio technologies, and normative listening frameworks that are present within settler listening settings.

Hayden describes his research through these immersive and generative techniques, while confronting First Nations Australian socio-cultural and political issues through signal processing, algorithmic and data composition, and spatialisation. He is currently completing his Master’s thesis, and writing an article proposal on Decolonizing Indigenous Sound Archiving Through Higher Order Ambisonics, for the Audio Engineering Society convention in Madrid, Spain.

Open Movement

 
In its third season, Open Movement is continuing its open format of carving out space for free shared studio time and Artist led movement workshops every Sunday in Performance Space New York’s theaters. This season’s Open Movement exists in 3 parts:
 
First, come move your body however you like at Open Movement Studio. There will be music playing, lights will be contributing to the atmosphere and you can come and go as you please. This is a shared studio where people stretch, draw, write, lay on the floor, noodle, dance and rehearse with others and by themselves. Bring friends and family, make friends and family. This is an opportunity to be grounded in your body and just feel. Many participants refer to this as “church”.
 
In the second part of Sunday at 4pm, participate in movement concept WORKSHOPS led by artists and practitioners. These workshops have something different to offer every week as each artist or practitioner shares a two hour participatory practice, exploration or sequence of actions. Some lend themselves to performance ethos of shared practices as others ground in wellness ontologies while others are experiments in the human condition. All are of the body and within community.
 
This year, sprinkled in is a call for experimentation and poetic sentiment around the body’s relationship to science as it merges with the mystical or spiritual. Open to broad interpretation, the Open Movement ethos is expansive and can go beyond the typical practices of “dance”. Check the schedule and Instagram every week for specific details.
 
The third part of Open Movement is the new, WIP FEEDBACK FRONT. This is a showcasing of artist works in progress. Throughout the year we will have five events where 2 artists or artist groups will show us what they are working on. This is a performance event with wine and drinks served in a casual atmosphere. Built within the event is an opportunity to write feedback for the artists anonymously if you choose. WIP FEEDBACK FRONT is an opportunity for New York artists and audience members to witness and experiment with the living experience of performance in its broadest form.
 
All of this is meant for all people, “non-dancers” welcome. A major component of the ethos is to utilize empty space for people to reconnect, ground and expand within themselves and with others, wherever we are at the moment.

THERE’S A CRACK IN MY VESSEL methodology emphasizes a soothing focus on the
entire body, uncovering fluid and dynamic pathways to understand and challenge our
potential. In this 3 day workshop, we will identify, unlock, crack and explore focal points in our vessel as well as our environment, delving into our own performative alchemy. Through guided meditation and continuous motion exercises, we allow light and matter to travel dimensions, gaining insights into our personal history and future desires. In the durational practice of intuitive improvisation we construct ideas of dimensional movement cartography as well as lucid cinematography, creating an empathetic centrifuge experience between ourselves and the present moment.

Free with RSVP

 
GARBAGE TEXTS is a workshop about words and what we do with them. Engaging in intuitive writing exercises, we’ll dip below the surface of meaning and dig into our individual undergrounds. We will then exchange words with each other, listening to our inside voices made outside. As we let go of legibility and punctuation, our words will slip in and out of coherence and into and out of pure acoustical presence. From there, we will trawl the formless space between sound and movement and make some shapes. Everyone of all abilities and experience is encouraged to attend.

Free with RSVP

 
This workshop explores the relationship between the mind and body, emotions and
movements, by applying sense memory practice in method acting as a tool to create
movement. The practice aims to approach movement through basic acting practice, exploring and experimenting with how feelings and imagination can stimulate and trigger movement. The workshop includes activities that expand sensations and emotions through memories, creating movement from within, ultimately “dancing” from the inside out.
With the physical and emotional awareness that the sense memory practice brings to the
participants, the practice can be applied to contact improvisation, expanding the exploration from self to others. Participants are required to prepare an object in mind that has a certain memory linked to it for
the workshop.

Free with RSVP

 
Fame, Center Stage, Step Up (1 & 2 only), Honey, You Got Served, Save the last dance, black swan and more! Dress in your most cliche dance rehearsal outfit (open to interpretation) and prepare to sweat while being incandescently happy!

Free with RSVP

 
This workshop will explore what we carry, and how we are carried. The body is a carrier and we are a carrier of the body, of time and in time, together. Through our physical bodies we will gather information around the sensation of carrying and being carried. How can I carry you? How can I let myself be carried? Carrying is knowledge, with/in.

Free with RSVP

 
(BLACK) childhood experiments is an open framework centering Black improvisation performance to excavate childhood memories within the body. Using somatic practices, popular Black music / text from childhood and otherwise possibility to imagine space outside of everything complexed.

Free with RSVP

 
In this movement workshop we will focus on the body in relation to time.
