A Call for Solidarity: A Real-Time Networked Performance Linking Hawaii, Alaska, and NYC—Wednesday 15 April 2015
A Call for Solidarity—a real-time networked performance linking Hawaii, Alaska, and New York City—livestreamed on the global, commons-based peer produced HowlRound TV network at howlround.tv on Wednesday 15 April at 8 p.m. EDT (New York) / 7 p.m. CDT (Chicago) / 5 p.m. PDT (Los Angeles) / 4 p.m. AKDT (Alaska) / 2 p.m. HAST (Hawaii).
Join us in an innovative online live performance and exchange in real-time with cultural groups across the country who explore the intersection between traditional cultural dance and music from Hawaii, Puerto Rico, and Alaska which will be remixed and explored through Hip Hop, Spoken word, and visual theatre.
New York youth poets will use Hip Hop and Spoken Word to bring a contemporary take on timeless cultural traditions out of Hawaii, Puerto Rico via The Bronx, and Alaska.
Imagine Bomba Alaskan style, Hawaiian chants to a beat box rhythm and the poetics of identity transformed into an interactive networked theatre.
Themes explored will include: solidarity, heritage and identity, survival and power, justice and injustice.
Artspace and CultureHub are working with a network of social justice arts organizations to push the boundaries of using video conferencing technology as an art-making platform to allow a new collaboration called network performance which allows geographically remote artists to exchange multimedia performances in real time across the country.
Experience this ambitious and lively cultural experience online at HowlRound.TV
Length: 90 minutes
Facilitators: Artspace Projects working in partnership with CultureHub, funded by the Ford Foundation
