Fusebox Festival in Conversation

gobsquad_fuseboxWe curated and produced three discourse-based community engagement programs at the 2012 Fusebox Festival including:

“Performance and Context” – a panel discussion on visual art and performance featuring Austin-based artists Wura-Natasha Ogunji and Michael Smith, director Phil Soltanoff and curator Hilary Graves from Austin’s Lora Reynolds Gallery .

The “Hair of the Dog Performance Potlatch” where we used the “Long Table” format as the basis for a conversation around art and place.Participants included Caroline Reck of Glass Half Full Theatre, Graham Schmidt of Breaking StringBrian Osborne, and 600 Highwaymen.

 “The Impersonation Game” (a re-imagination of the artist talkback) in which three Austin artists – Allison Orr, Graham Schmidt and Kirk Lynn – impersonated UK/Berlin performance group Gob Squad and answered questions from the audience about Gob Squad’s show Super Night Shot
