Event Description

“Bushwick SITE Festival”: March 6 & 7, 2010 1pm– 9pm
“ionSOUND”: March 6, 7:30pm – 1am & March 7, 3pm – 1am

Arts in Bushwick is pleased to announce SITE Fest, a two-day interdisciplinary event highlighting the diversity of performance in Bushwick. Now in its second year, SITE arose in response to the amazing outpouring of live art that Arts in Bushwick receives every year for BETA Spaces and Open Studios. Encompassing and blending a variety of forms including theater, dance, and music, SITE investigates our neighborhood as an unfolding collaborative performance enacted in urban space.

SITE Fest focuses around three hub venues: Chez Bushwick, Grace Exhibition Space, and 3rd Ward. All three represent major forces in the Bushwick art scene; additionally, each offers its own clear curatorial presence and voice. The hubs will be divided by genre: Chez Bushwick will feature primarily dance; Grace Exhibition Space primarily duration- and media-based pieces; and 3rd Ward primarily theater and short-form performance art.

In addition to the hub shows, performances will take place in a variety of alternative spaces: apartments, studios, street corners, and within galleries, including Norte Maar, Centotto, and Famous Accountants. The diversity of locations allows the audience to interact with the wide range of landscape/stage in Bushwick, exploring each element for its creative use.

Special events include “You Can’t Do That On Television,” a performance video show at Brooklyn Fireproof, Jill Sigman/thinkdance’s “Nat. Mur: 5 Rites,” a Saturday night circus dance party at The House Of Yes, and Rachel Frank’s “Sleep of Reason” at the Bushwick Starr. SITE Fest will open with a party at Bushwick’s Beauty Bar on Friday, March 5 (9pm – 4am), and conclude with an after-party at Page Not Found on Sunday, March 7 (7pm – 12am).

In conjunction with SITE Fest, Arts in Bushwick will present ionSOUND: a two day music festival at Goodbye Blue Monday, one of Bushwick’s hotspots for live music. ionSOUND will take place on March 6 & 7 as well, with performances from 7:30pm – 1am on the 6th, and 3pm – 1am on the 7th.

Programs for SITE Fest containing a map and a complete listing of exhibits and events will be distributed the week of the event. Admission (suggested donation) is $5 per hub show; $10 for a day pass; or $15 for a weekend pass. Beginning March 1, tickets and passes will be available through artsinbushwick.wordpress.com. They can also be purchased at hub spaces during the event itself. Price information for performances taking place outside of hub spaces will be listed on the SITE Fest program.

SITE Fest is a proud partner and featured Brooklyn event of Armory Arts Week.
