Entr’acte

When 20 Jul 2014 - 3 Aug 2014
Where 课间 | Entr
49 Bogart St, 2nd Fl
Brooklyn, CA
United States

Time: July 20, 27 & Aug 3, 7:30-10pm

Between the acts, ten minutes, in exchange for your midsummer night’s dream.

For three consecutive Sundays starting July 20, each evening, six artists are each given 10 minutes to perform, read, or play their artwork. The evening is divided into two sessions and each session of three artist is followed by a 30-minute discussion.

This project means to play the role not only of a open platform, but also of a progressive forum. It promotes the critical eye and provocative voice. We believe everyone who is present is obligated to present something: works and/or words, and we invite creators and critics from all backgrounds. No bystanders.

Entracte is inspired by the 1924 Surrealist cinematic orchestra of same title. The project not only aligns itself with the ideas of “in-between,” but also accentuates the agitative, active, and impregnated sensibility embodied by a “between the acts” break. The Chinese title “课间,” a class break, insinuates a similar notion of limited time saturated with incalculable impetuses.

Entracte is open for submissions. Please send a brief proposal by the Friday of each week to hanluz23@gmail.com. A list of artists of each Sunday will be announced before the event. See below a tentative schedule of the event:
