AUNTS will finish off their summer series with a collaborative event on Sunday, October 3rd! AUNTS is Laurie Berg, Shana Crawford, Kadesmiles, Jordan Lloyd, Larissa Velez-Jackson, and Jessie Young; an organizing team leveraging skills in the performing arts, arts advocacy, arts administration, event production, choreography, teaching and the interdisciplinary arts. The team’s mission is to preserve the ethos of AUNTS events, upholding an equitable, diverse and supportive space for experimentation and creation for their invited artists, as well as to produce a safe event for the local and artistic community. For AUNTS Triple Threat, each artist is invited to curate an additional artist to take part in the event.
AUNTS Triple Threat is a performance and music extravaganza with multiple performers, overlapping performances, multi-disciplinary, body/non-body based, time oriented, finished / experimental / unfinished / process art, a dance party and more – and all free to the public and the people!
