“People misunderstand… I was talking survival, and they were talking rights, independence, more abstract concepts. Community is survival.” – Nick Dupree
I wanna be with you everywhere is a gathering of, by, and for disabled artists and writers and anyone who wants to get with us for a series of crip meet-ups, performances, talks and other social spaces of surplus, abundance and joy. It refuses policies of individuation and inclusion in favor of (and in the flavor of) whatever disability aesthetics has in bodymind—which we won’t know ‘til it shows us. Programs and events will unfold across each day, but there’s also going to be a major sense of ease. We’re bridging coasts and working on crip time so we’ll announce the full program soon 😉 (winky face emoticon).
Performance Space New York is on the 4th floor of the 122 Community Center building. It is wheelchair accessible and has ADA, gender non-segregated bathrooms on the 4th and 5th floors. The festival hosts a low-light quiet space on the 4th floor and events in this festival are fragrance free. ASL interpretation, CART, audio description and/or induction loops will be available based on media presented. If you or a friend require a particular form of support/translation not listed here, please contact us by email at boxoffice@PerformanceSpaceNewYork.org by March 28, 2019. Service Animals welcome. Our welcome desk and point people will be present for day-of access requests. A travel fund for local accessible transport to and from Performance Space will be available for those who need financial assistance to attend. Full program, access info for events at both venues, and travel fund details announced Feb 14, 2019.
Performance Space frames all their images within their graphic logo – a heart shape with the top right corner cut off. Within this shape, six different perspectives taken from a GIF and tiled together show a silver and black tabby cat just chilling in a glass bowl on a sunny window ledge, head cocked to one side. There’s a green cactus in a pot in the background. A fluffy paw drapes over the side of the bowl, which is way too small for the cat.
