Ditch Projects is pleased to present
The Sign of the Enterer
Stacy Jo Scott and Jovencio de la Paz
Saturday, January 11th
Performance. Reading accompanied by Moog Mother 32 system and Korg ms20.
The Sign of the Enterer describes the space of queer embodiment and desire, the digital and material, the seen and unseen.
The space between is a space of action, of power, of conjuring. It is a moment in time, and an endless shift. The utopia of this text is not a cataclysmic becoming into a new state for humanity. Rather this utopia is a shift of individual consciousness and claimed agency, from moment to moment. It imagines an awakening into freedom, pleasure, and kinship, as signified by the queer and the cyborg. We learn from these icons to create the world as we are created by the world. As agents we are encouraged to choose to shift our time in one direction or another, from moment to moment. It is the locus of a shared politic of empowered interaction with the other.
This Performance/Reading is part of A Good Way to Invent the Future, co-curated by Ditch Projects Co-Artistic and Executive Directors Mike Bray and Marissa Lee Benedict, and generously supported by a Documentation and Exhibition Grant from the Ford Family Foundation. The exhibition runs from December 2019 – January 2020.
