MONDAY JULY 5–Supralingual/Sublingual: The Tongue is the Terrain by Gary Setzer
9pm – 10pm

Supralingual/Sublingual: The Tongue is the Terrain, is a new performance by
visual artist, Gary Setzer. Integrating video, live music, and performance art,
Setzer metaphorically parallels the division between air and land with the
division between language and its meaning. The surface of the landscape is the
literal seam between the atmosphere and geosphere; as such, it becomes host to
a range of metaphoric activity revealing both the poetry and gracelessness of
straddling the language/meaning divide. Setzer posits himself here, merging
electro nu-wave music and process-oriented performance art to deliver a nerdy
audiovisual spectacle that recalls Joseph Beuys or Bruce Nauman as much as it
does Devo.

WEDNESDAY, JUNE 30, 7:00-9:00pm: The Caldwells & Fishermans perform at Mess Hall (Live Music!)

“After departing for their respected schools nationwide, The Caldwells and Fishermans return to shore with a special midsummer performance at the unique community center, Mess Hall. The Caldwells are a gang of four who send out good vibrations with their 60’s pop and garage rock sound. Perfect companions, Fishermans provide an enchanted journey with their diverse instrumentation including trumpets and electronic samples that give way to heart-filled group sing-a-longs. Both groups are looking forward to sharing new material, baked goods and some good ol’ fashioned fun.

The show starts at 7pm and is free to the open public!

THURSDAY, JULY 1, 7:00-9:00pm: Writing at the Movies

“Writing at the Movies” A new writing workshop led by the poet Gene Tanta. Participants in this workshop will use as our point of departure Andre Breton’s surrealist montage technique of dropping in and out of various cinemas looking to cutup visual elements and dialogues. However, instead of the velvety cinemas of Paris, we will use DVDs and Google Videos (no limits on
theme or form). For the first half, we will screen a few minutes of the films we bring in and/or of internet audio-visual artifacts while describing what we see and hear. For the second half, we will perform and discuss what we produced (again, no limits on theme or form). We will write in response to these moving images and sounds, striving for a precise or even a phenomenological
(suspending our assumptions) description of what we see and hear.

Free & open to the general public! Everyone is welcome to attend!
