May-July, 2013 at Arts@Renaissance (Greenpoint, Brooklyn)
Two venerable DIY dance forces join powers to create Time Share, a pop-up venue linking artistic process and community. The temporary performance and research hub, located in the repurposed garden level of an old hospital on the Williamsburg/Greenpoint border (St. Nick’s Alliance/Arts@Renassaince), will host a variety of low-cost movement classes, performances, lectures, and community dinners. The space will also feature a permanent “free boutique” that functions as a depot for non-monetary exchange of clothing and recycled materials. Taking advantage of each organization’s ability to shape-shift and respond to the needs of its community, AUNTS & CLASSCLASSCLASS will not attempt to replicate this structure in the future. Time Share is a three-month experiment that says, “this isn’t a hole, we made it.”
CLASSES: Classes will include improvisation, voice & movement, non-gender ballet, spontaneous choreography, sensory experience, feldenkrais method, meditation, performative practices and bodywork. Teachers: Hadar Ahuvia, Maximilian Balduzzi, Maggie Bennett, Lorene Bouboushian, Ethan Cowan, Carly Czach, Liliana Dirks-Goodman, Melanie Maar, Juliana May, Steve May, Rebeca Medina, niall noel, Sari Nordman, Marissa Perel, Katy Pyle, Jen Rosenblit, Michele Torino, and Larissa Velez-Jackson.
Daily Monday-Friday from 10am-12pm & 12:30-2:30pm; May 20-June 28; classes $8
DINNER & DISCUSSION: Monthly panel discussions organized by writers Buck Wanner, Siobhan Burke, and Tara Willis followed by community dinners: guest chefs design a template, community fills in with side dishes.
Wednesdays, May 15th, June 12th & July 17th from 6-8pm (Panel) 8pm (Dinner)

For AUNTS realness, a collection of artists organized by AUNTS takes over all three performance spaces at the Abrons Arts Center for a night of performance and good old fashioned debauchery. It’s dance, it’s a party. You might find a costume, you might have a snack, you’ll definitely have a drink, you might meet your next lady/boy/girlfriend. It’s a late night performance moment with a committed group of experimental artists who love what they do and love you too.
Admission is a contribution to the Free Bar or boutique where everyone shops and drinks for free all night long.
Bring anything, like beer, soda, juice, or wine, old props and dance clothes, the awesome old shirt in your closet that you never wear anymore, or rollerskates to give away.
$$$ donations are also appreciated and will be given directly to the artists involved.
