WEEKEND + WEEK
===+++===+++===+++===

EVENT: Compendium: Technics
http://www.cprnyc.org/eventcalendar
A performance micro-conference. The Compendium invites artists to research their relationships with technology, technicalities, and technics. Artists across disciplines manipulate, access, and utilize objects and systems, interacting with technics that are present in performance situations, both as part of the technicalities of presentation, and as instruments, tools, devices, visibility and amplification aids, and as part of documentation, methodological means, and aesthetic and political vehicles.
- Fri: Artists will perform in the CPR spaces in the absence of colloquially-defined “technology,” sans electricity, sans amplification, stripping the work of technology, and sometimes of "technique" (if possible?). Audiences must be present in the space to experience the work. Documentation will consist of written descriptions.
- Sat: Artists will have access to CPR's “cutting edge” technological array, including multiple projectors, sound system, and lighting grid, and may bring in their own technological devices, set-ups, and mechanisms. Audiences may view streamed performances from computers all over the world and performances will be documented on digital video. A round-table discussion on Sat at 4pm will allow us to reflect on the collective research performed, involving the artists from the project and including other voices in live performance. (Fri: 6pm-10pm / Sat: 3pm-10pm, Center for Performance Research, 361 Manhattan Ave, Bushwick, BK, Sugg don $5-15)

Jaggery: “Torture chamber pop.” “Darkwave jazz.” “Siren rock.” These are a few of the many attempts to describe the sound of Jaggery, an art-rock ...collective which weaves harp, viola, piano, contrabass, and drum kit into a universe of its own, setting the scene for “one of the most beautiful voices in modern music.” Not Waving But Drowning: NWBD makes a joyful noise with banjos, violas, whiskey bottles, trumpets, and pots and pans, all while spinning together shipwrecked shanties, homespun Appalachian reels, smoky bordello blues, and gleeful indie rock. Born in a squalid Brooklyn c abaret, NWBD sings tales of mystery, adventure, and poisoned love in distinctive three-part harmony and impeccable attire (The Living Room, 154 Ludlow St, 8pm, $?)

EVENT: Mermaid Parade
http://www.coneyisland.com/mermaid.shtml
A completely original creation of Coney Island USA, the Mermaid Parade is the nation's largest art parade and one of New York City's greatest summer events. Founded in 1983 by Coney Island USA, the not-for-profit arts organization that also produces the Coney island Circus Sideshow, the Mermaid Parade pays homage to Coney Island's forgotten Mardi Gras which lasted from 1903 to 1954, and draws from a host of other sources resulting in a wonderful and wacky event that is unique to Coney Island. The Mermaid Parade celebrates the sand, the sea, the salt air and the beginning of summer, as well as the history and mythology of Coney Island, Coney Island pride, and artistic self-expression. The Parade is characterized by participants dressed in hand-made costumes as Mermaids, Neptunes, various sea creatures, the occasional wandering lighthouse, Coney Island post card or amusement ride, as well as antique cars, marching bands, drill teams, and the odd yacht pulled on flatbed.

WORD: Hey, Where's My Robot Girlfriend?

An illustrated lecture on Sexual Robotics, Teledildonics, and Carnal Technology with sexual health researcher, educator, and writer Laura G. Duncan. The robotic bride. The orgasm ray. The sex machine. These classic tropes of science fiction – how fictitious are they really? Hybrids of sex and technology are flourishing in contemporary culture, from basement workshops where power tools are lovingly repurposed into bedroom aids to sexual media empires with genres devoted solely to robot-human couplings. The medical sciences have even gotten in on the act with models of sperm-powered nanobots. Technology and sexuality have long been intimately connected, each inspiring innovation in the other and nowhere is this more striking than in the fields of teledildonics (computer-interfaced sex toys) and sexual robotics.

THEATER: The Bachelors' Tea Party
http://www.stolenchair.org/bachelorsteaparty.html
The Bachelors' Tea Party is an absurd and absurdly intimate new comedy inspired by the relationships of Elsie de Wolfe (Lady Mendl) and Bessie Marbury, who referred to themselves as "The Bachelors," after they took up joint residence sans men in the first years of the 20th century. Before she invented the profession of interior decorator, de Wolfe was a struggling Broadway performer, known more for her costumes than her acting, and her partner Bessie Marbury, legendary agent and broker, was introducing America to Oscar Wilde and discovering Cole Porter. In a playfully perverse take on a young girl's imaginary tea party, de Wolfe and Marbury will delight and torment each other and entertain a coterie of special guests, "performed" by dolls assembled around the table, with audience members seated only inches away. The play is set in a real Victorian-esque tea salon, and seating is extremely limited - please make reservations. (Sundays thru 7/15, Lady Mendl's Tea Salon, 56 Irvin

Suffering from nightmares? Want some more? A vivid genre-defying performance, Rachel Klein's Symphony of Shadows takes you on a journey through the mind of a woman in conflict with sleep disorders, phantasmagorical night terrors, hypnotic horrors, and other, visually stunning manifestations from deep within the confines of her mind. (Dixon Place, 161A Chrystie Street, 7:30pm, Friday June 22nd and Saturday June 23rd, GA $15 / Students & Seniors $12)

THEATER: The Naughty Victorians
http://www.radiotheatrenyc.com
It's totally over-the-top, outrageously bawdy, and extremely enthusiastic. And there's a lot of rich, gorgeous language detailing terribly naughty things. Also, moaning. A LOT of moaning. And we're opening tomorrow. I'd love to see you guys there - I genuinely think it's a great show, totally worth seeing for its own sake, and an excellent beginning to a night out and about in the village. Very Lewd. Very Lusty. Veddy British. Victorian Erotica as only RadioTheatre can deliver it: hot, heavy, and wholly hysterical. For Adults only, please. Complete with a great cast of storytellers and original orchestral sound design by the award-winning, critically acclaimed Radiotheatre. (Thru 7/19, The Kraine Theater, 85 E. 4th Street between 2nd & 3rd Aves, 8pm, $20, code "VICS" for $5 discount)
