YBCA Smart Night Out — Silent Disco Is This Saturday
We do museums! This Saturday, May 28th we are making our Yerba Buena Center for the Arts Debut as part of their famed Smart Night Out Series! Some of our favorite folks including Primo, Hottub, Vivvy Forevermore and others have performed at these so we’re excited to be asked. We’re even more excited to be participating in their first ever silent disco where participants will be able to hear our 45s broadcast directly to their headphones! Don’t miss it cuz you can either shake it with some hotties on a quiet as a mouse dancefloor or run around the museum and hear us as you check out other exhibits and good times. Here’s the facebook invite, a youtube video and more information:
Sometimes analogies are the best descriptive device. If Big Idea Night is a Camaro, then Smart Night Out is an Aston Martin. At our debut SNO, we’ll explore the concept of quiet as it relates to contemporary art and performance. Joanna Haigood, choreographer and Artistic Director of Zaccho Dance Theatre, will create a series of short movement meditations where visitors/participants will follow simple, yet evocative movement scores that interact with the gallery artwork and architecture. Guests can also participate in a silent dance party, enjoy culinary delights (for an additional fee), eardrum preserving ambient sound art, and engage in workshops with artists featured in our Daily Lives exhibit. SNO is a decidedly different affair that retains the same boisterous and aesthetically promiscuous spirit as our Big Idea Nights. So nevermind the weather and come play in the SNO! And, as always, your donations and purchases at our free events help to keep them free!
