Evolver Spores: The Resilience Revolution

In our globalized world, the basic survival needs of many communities
are precariously out of their hands. Multinational corporations
exercise near-total control over the systems that sustain and connect
us, from food and clean water to energy and communication. At the same
time, natural disasters such as the recent earthquakes in Haiti and
Chile seem to be occurring with more frequency and intensity, while
manmade catastrophes like the ongoing economic collapse continue to
loom. As we saw with the bungled response of FEMA after Hurricane
Katrina, reliance on inept government bureaucracies in times of crisis
is a perilous act of faith. In a world fraught with uncertainty, an
empowered and resilient local community is the best defense.  How would
your community react if it suddenly had to fend for itself? What are
some vital tools and techniques we can implement today to prepare for
tomorrow’s challenges? In this Spore, we will discuss innovative
methods and memes that self-reliant societies are using to achieve
local resiliency.

The Sullivan Street Shakedown: DrumLab & Viz (Psylab),
Nutritious, Swank…

The Sullivan Street Shakedown: Five, Eight, Forty.  A Celebration Of
Photographer Matthew Fitzgerald’s Birthday XL.  Featuring:  DrumLab
& DJ Viz, Nutritious, Will Swank, Gregg Marcus, People In Charge,
Zoe Wilder, eBonheur, Mikey Beatz, VJ Mamiko Kushida & More Special
Guests TBA.  We are throwing it down at The Sullivan Street Shakedown
for one of the finest brothers we know. Matt Fitzgerald and his
brilliant photography have been helping the scene (and us) grow strong
for many years and in honor of his day of birth, we’re putting together
an assortment of instrumentalists/deejays that will assemble to bring
you hours of audio diamonds. These players are from some of the biggest,
baddest stages around, and they’re combining on this night to pull out
every stop, every trick in their book – every riff, scratch, slide,
snap, boom, bam they’ve ever perfected will be projected at pleasing
your soul, moving your body, and bringing this fine human into his next
year of life. Matt and his keen eyes have helped breathe life into and
move the careers of every performer you’ll see on this night, and with
your presence (the best birthday present there is), together, we can
turn the focus back on Matt and give him the soiree he so rightfully
deserves. From live drum and bass, brass horns, records and cds, to
v-drums and kaossed vox, there will be new genres of music formed on
this night, and all of it will move you so, come ready to be moved…and
dance.  Special photo coverage of this night will be provided by the
talented, Daniela Volpi.  DrumLab:  The duo of Steve (drums) and Ed
(techno wizardry) of the famous psychedelic / live electronic band
Psylab. DrumLab breaks it down into the strictly twisted dub elements of
Psylab’s mastery and paves new ground with what can be done with a set
of e-drums and lots of SUBS.   People In Charge: Added to the sonic
mix is the collaboration of rotating People In Charge musical guests –
the opportunity for producers to rock their instruments live on stage
rather than behind the recording console. On this night, Mikey Beatz
(drums), eBonheur (bass), and Zoe Wilder (vocals) team with DrumLab to
turn the party on its head.  DJ Viz: Or Vizzie, the techno technician
of Psylab fame, rocks the 1’s and 2’s, strictly vinyl, for an
exploration and elaboration of the world’s finest Dub-Step and Drum
& Bass. Viz is a sub-bass gourmand, so be ready to feel it in your
gut.  Will Swank: Swank brings with him years of touring experience
with The Motet and a background in subterranean Jazz that stands the
test with history’s most legendary saxophone players. Will rocks a
growling tenor and phrases lines like he’s painting the future in
ancient poetry.  Nutritious: Is a DJ… and he rocks the shit out of
parties, eBonheur: is a ninja. Zoe Wilder: ZW has shared many a stage
but, most infamous for her collaborations with Psylab and the New Deal.
Possibly most remembered for her shadow dancing performance at
main-stage Camp Bisco 6, Wilder’s scheming something xxx-tra
provocative for Five Eight Forty so, abre los ojos.  VJ Mamiko Kushida:
Mami should need no introduction but, new to the States after rockin
Japan’s biggest events for years, Mamiko’s the most bad-ass VJ here.
She’s one part kunoichi, one part Foxy Brown – she’ll super-fly
slice-you and you’ll thank her for it.  Update 4/27:: We’re announcing
the addition of Gregg Marcus on trumpet, enhanced by Vizzie’s custom
effects software “TrumpetLab”.

Unmasking the Divine Dancer

How can we communicate without words to each other and to Spirit?
What happens when we are given the opportunity to express ourselves
without words?  Join us for a full day of frolicking and playful
exploration as we unmask the Divine Dancer within us all. Step out of
ordinary reality to journal, mask and dance your way into a deeper
experience of reality. This course will explore the rich diversity of
communication that goes beyond mere words in ways that are empowering
and playful.  This one day workshop affirms that our souls are
multilingual by offering a variety of ways of conversing with the
Divine, our higher selves and each other. Through group processes,
journaling, mask making and movement–all within a safe, sacred space —
you will explore the deeper more subtle realm that lies beneath our
everyday reality. These tools help us cross the threshold into the
collective consciousness allowing us to listen more deeply to the
wisdom within us all. We will use the Fantastical Creatures Tarot to
create a shared story; create Masks based on the story of the cards and
explore other areas of personal relevance. We will then dance
collectively and explore the language of our bodies without judgment.
This is followed by more personal journaling and a closing discussion
to elicit the wisdom we have just played and danced into being. 
Participants will discover that the act of playing is a legitimate
spiritual practice for connecting to the Divine. You will also tap into
the perennial wisdom and see how it speaks to our times.  Darren
PolitoRev. Darren Polito has been dancing all his life and it’s a love
he shares willingly. He danced with the Fairmount Jazz Company in Ohio,
studied at the American Musical and Dramatic Academy in NYC and with
Gabrielle Rother and her son Jonathan Horan. He began a monthly
Ecstatic Dance program for Sacred Center NYC. He also conducts movement
workshops at Moonheart Healing Arts Center and Easton Mountain Retreat
Center. As an ordained Interfaith Minister, Darren envisions spreading
the Gospel of Dance to all that are interested, opening new avenues for
expression and connection with our Source.  Helen HazletRev. Helen
Hazlett is a teacher, writer, priestess, interfaith minister, and
life-long learner. She has over 30 years experience as a group
facilitator. Helen is a delightful, affirmative, funny and honest woman,
skilled at creating safe space in her relationships and in groups.

Infected mushroom holographic show with reality engine

Psy-Trance innovators Infected Mushroom have become one of the
biggest electronic bands on the planet. Twice ranked among the world’s
10 best DJs by the bible of the scene, the U.K.’s DJ Magazine, the
Israel-bred, L.A. based duo bring a frenetic rock energy to NYC. Their
explosive show, featuring guitars, live drums, intensely passionate
vocals and an ambitious holographic installation multimedia backdrop,
done in collaboration with Reality Engine, ranks among the genre’s most
unpredictably joyous events. And their recordings continually venture
where other electronic acts fear to tread. Amit “Duvdev” Duvedevani and
Erez Eisen have been working for nearly two years on an aggressive new
album – their first since 2007’s critically acclaimed Vicious
Delicious – for dance-music visionary Paul Oakenfold’s Perfecto label.
Duvdev describes the as-yet untitled record, recorded at Infected
Mushroom Laboratory in L.A. and slated for a June 2009 release, as a
return to the pair’s metal roots. Guests include singer Jonathan Davis
of Korn, who lends his estimable pipes to the track “Smashing the
Opponent.”

Generation “buY” a new comedy about selling our children

“We’re gonna lasso and brand those lil’ dawgies. Because if you get
‘em young, you’ll have ‘em for the rest of their lives!”  Theater for
the New City and Lysistrata’s Children present:“Generation buY”A new
comedy about selling our children.  WHERE AND WHEN:May 6 to 16,

May 6.  NEW YORK, April 28 – 13 year old Vanessa is under siege. Her
schoolmates are obsessed with consumer products and brands. To her,
they are virtual robots speaking in slogans and jingles. Her mother,
Karen, is a master marketer who will stop at nothing to get her clients
what they need—child consumers. Part expose, part satire “Generation
buY” shares the real life techniques of marketers to kids:
surreptitious video taping, packaged slumber parties for teenage girls,
and Youth Marketing International, who is proud to get brands (i.e.
McDonalds, X-Box) into schools as part of actual student lesson plans.
With everyone around her out to “sell her”, how will Vanessa survive? 
“Generation buY” examines the theme of marketing to children. Conceived
and directed by Philip Suraci, the play is written in collaboration
with and performed by a young (ages 11to 13) ensemble of 15 kids plus
three adult actors, to be seen by an audience of both adults and
children over the age of ten. Theater for the New City, 155 First
Avenue, will present the work May 6 to 16.  Through humor, song, shadow
puppets, and story telling, “Generation buY” explores the moral
ambiguities of advertising to youth: cause marketing, the selling of
sugar as a recreational drug, the co-opting of rock and roll, cartoons,
and “cool.” Adults in attendance are asked to wonder if American
society treats its children as anything more than vessels of
consumption.  It’s the second play by-kids-for-adults to be directed by
Philip Suraci at Theater for the New City. The first was “Lysistrata’s
Children”, in 2008. While pursuing a master’s degree in educational
theater (NYU 2004), Suraci was deeply impressed by the depth and
complexity of thought of relatively young people (ages 10-13). When
these students and their words were placed in a dramatic context, Suraci
found the result to be powerful and provocative.  The young actors are
Lola Buncher, Eli Cauley, Ty Cotton, Priscilla Delmoral, Leila Eliot,
Mykel Macedon, Will Mairs, Malcolm McKenzie, Tiffany Otero, Valentine
Petrillo, Willa Pittman, Frances Raybaud, Kendrik Shoji, Mitchel Thomas,
Jason Vazquez, Malcom Zelaya. The adult actors are Tom O’Connor,
Sheira Feuerstein and Jackie Donnaruma. Musical Director is Joseph
Albano Feiger. Choreography is by Barry Blumenfeld. Set Design is by
Mark Marcante. Lighting Design is by Alex Bartenieff. Costume Design is
by Kat Martin. Mask and puppet design are by Spica Wobbe. Graphic
Design is by Fred Sullivan and AVDrive. Art Design is by Ray Felix.

NYC and about some innovative (local) approaches to tackling it. Joel
Berg will paint a picture of hunger in one of wealthiest cities in the
world and Karen Washington will discuss the power and importance of the
community garden movement in helping New Yorkers to feed themselves.
Daniel Bowman Simon will share his own story of helping to establish the
now famous White House Kitchen Garden as well as outline how his
newest project aims to bring a garden to City Hall that would supply
emergency food providers with fresh local produce. In the spirit of
Shavuot, Rabbi Spodek will frame our discussion around Jewish
imperatives towards justice.  Guests will be invited to offer concrete
volunteer power to the People’s Garden NYC campaign with a post-program
action party. This program is brought to you by the AJWS-AVODAH
Partnership and is co-sponsored by our friends at Hazon.
