What the hell is Generator?

Generator is a performance event organized by Talya Epstein and Lindsey Drury at the Woods Cooperative. Once every two months, we gather performance artists into the Woods and share our work. But what does Generator feel like? Well- consider the following notes:

– Failing to follow the laws of self-aggrandization, Generator is non-curated, hyper-inclusive, and totally free. Bring your embarrassing enthusiasm because we promise nobody is going to “discover” you in Ridgewood, Queens. Thank god. You can relax at Generator because we go low-stakes to no-stakes.

– Celebrating the poverty of dance production values, Generator shares unfinished works in a space with the crappiest lights and sound system you might encounter in NYC. Furthermore, we’re literally under the M train, so expect to be interrupted by the deafening sound of trains during your performance. We think your work is sexier and sometimes more conceptually sound that way.

– Denying that a meaningful audience requires sobriety, at Generator, we indulge and watch all at once.

– Generator provides the opportunity for artists to burst their protective process bubble. We believe that the rawness of unfinished work is fun for audiences and artists alike. We like our cookies half-baked, our steaks raw, and our dances in-the-works.

Sunday June 3rd. Space opens for artists to set-up/warm-up at 6pm. Films begin showing at 7pm. Live Works begin at 8pm.
