Event description

Description

In conjunction with MoMA PS1’s Spring Open House, VW Sunday Sessions presents a performance festival in collaboration with Brooklyn-based artist-run venue Secret Project Robot. A celebration of New York City’s performance scene, the program features artists who first found an outlet for their work, as well as camaraderie and resources, within the city's alternative spaces. These artists continue to present experimental projects and support the community that fostered their personal and creative identities. Incorporating six hour-long durational pieces, videos, improvisational theater, live music, and solo performances, the festival brings together work that intersects music, art, and nightlife.

Emceed by BUSHWIG, the festival includes performances by Bunny Michael, Macy Rodman, and Jennifer Vanilla; DJ sets by Sweat Equity and DJ Dog Dick; back-to-back concerts by Somos Monstros and Bottoms; and projects from longtime Secret Project Robot collaborators Raul de Nieves and Jake Dibeler. Interspersed between acts, FLUCT premieres a new video work, and Monica Mirabile and Kathleen Dycaico present a series of performative vignettes. Throughout the building, visitors will encounter pop-up music, performance, and interventions, such as a new play led by Cameron Stuart, a recital from Frank Hurricane, and music by Robot Death. The program concludes with rare concert from seminal Brooklyn band Black Dice, who have not performed in New York City since 2012.

Secret Project Robot has been a longstanding part of New York’s cultural landscape, holding interdisciplinary events in multiple locations for almost 20 years. This festival marks the culmination of VW Sunday Sessions’ season-long exploration of alternative platforms for creative practice.
