Norte Maar presents its most ambitious collaborative event to date! The Brooklyn Performance Combine is a spontaneous mashup of poets, painters, and performers at the Brooklyn Museum on November 1 from 7-9pm. This event coincides with the museum’s Target Free Saturdays and responds to the museum’s current exhibition Crossing Brooklyn: Bushwick, Bed-Stuy and Beyond. The event is free.
Not so unlike the historic Theater Event #1 that took place at Black Mountain College during the summer of 1952, andNorte Maar’s own End of the World performance at English Kills, The Brooklyn Performance Combine Event unites all art forms in a fusion of poetry, sound, dance, and performance in a single cohesive 120-minute event. It will be epic.
A timer will start the countdown for the performance. Each artist will be programmed to begin and end at a time designated through chance operations within the 120-minute interval. At times a poet will be reading while a sound artist is performing. A dancer will enter, perform and depart. Sounds will overlap. There will be silence. Every aspect of the performance will be unrehearsed, live, spontaneous, and uninterrupted. Audiences can come and go as the event clock ticks out of time.
