Call & Response: Experiments in Joy Festival, August 22-24

The weekend of August 22-24, 2014, seven black women artists will premiere new work in the Experiments in Joy Festival as part of “Call & Response,” a dynamic of black women and performance at Antioch College.

These artists are Antioch Associate Professor of Performance Gabrielle Civil, Duriel E. Harris (Chicago, IL), Kenyatta A. C. Hinkle (Los Angeles, CA), Rosamond S. King (Brooklyn, NY), Wura-Natasha Ogunji (Austin, TX and Lagos, Nigeria), Miré Regulus (Minneapolis, MN) and Awilda Rodríguez Lora (San Juan, Puerto Rico).

In July, these artists met together to share work, connect with the community and collaborate on a “Call,” a collective prompt for artistic action. The theme that emerged for the “Call” was “Experiments in Joy.”

This festival is the “Response” to that “Call.” 

All events are free and open to the public and will take place in the Antioch College Foundry Theater (*except where noted). Along with the artists’ installations and live performance, the festival will include community experiments, a short film series and more! 

For more information, please contact gcivil@antiochcollege.org.

Call & Response

The Antioch College performance program is pleased to presentCall & Response, a dynamic of black women and performance, held July 18-22 and August 23-24, 2014.

Part symposium, part residency, part festival, Call & Response is an innovative convening of black women and performance at Antioch College. Organized by Gabrielle Civil, Ph.D., associate professor of performance at Antioch College, this event welcomes to campus six diverse black women artists with distinct and different relationships to the words “black,” “women” and “performance.”

Participating artists include Gabrielle Civil (Yellow Springs, OH), Duriel E. Harris (Chicago, IL), Kenyatta A. C. Hinkle (Los Angeles, CA), Rosamond S. King (New York, NY), Wura-Natasha Ogunji (Austin, TX), Miré Regulus (Minneapolis, MN) and Awilda Rodríguez Lora (San Juan, Puerto Rico).

July 18-22, 2014, Civil and the resident artists will engage each other, connect with Antioch College students and community members, and collaborate on a public “call”—a collective prompt for artistic action—which will be announced on the fifth day at Antioch College’s Community Meeting.

When the artists meet again August 23-24, 2014, they will present their own “responses” to the call in a showing of public performances. Antioch students will help coordinate the circulation of the call (on campus, in the community and online) and will have opportunities to develop and present their own responses.

Inspired by the signature African-American form of interactive performance, Call & Response will foster and build community, manifest experiential learning, and showcase cutting-edge performance practice at Antioch College.
