La MaMa and CultureHub Present
Powered by LIVE Lab
Over the past two and a half months, La MaMa and CultureHub have teamed up to create Downtown Variety, which uses emerging technologies to create a new venue for artistic expression and creative connections.
La MaMa and CultureHub will pass the mic to POETIC SOCIETIES’ residents Ava Ansari, Salakastar, Ian Fink, Ahya Simone, Jonah Mixon-Webster, Halima Cassells, Rafael Leafar, and Salar Ansari who will offer an ancestral healing tele-protest to extend the resilience of Detroit and Flint artists to the multiverse of the global Black movement.
Powered by LiveLab, a browser-based media-router CultureHub is developing for networked collaboration between artists, technologists, and audiences.
Please support La MaMa as we create radical ways to connect you
with online happenings and audience engagement in this time of isolation.
About the Artists
POETIC SOCIETIES are a transmedia art and healing technology network that propose poetic-living and cultivating transnational celebratory memories as the most vital response to the historical struggles of human-kind. Their mesh of life, art, music, meditation, and network media, syncs oppressed bodies, creates intersectional dynamics of solidarity, and circulates somatic, sonic, and scenic healing tactics across the plexus earth to shape the future global margins.
POETIC SOCIETIES experience poetry as a migrational art that travels chest to chest and heart to heart. As translocational cosmic beings, they carry the history of the hue-people; hand over immortal acts of social justice; and celebrate borderless lives.
