PERFORMANCE , TALK+ EXHIBITION:
Prosody and Commoning on Governor’s Island exhibition and performance by Daria Faïn and Robert Kocik

11AM: door opens Exhibition (on display all day): drawings and documentation concerning commoning and the Prosodic Body

1PM-3PM: Talks and Discussion with feminist activist, teacher, communalist historian Silvia Federici and the visionary socialist, writer, composer, bandleader, baritone saxophonist Fred Ho, moderated by Robert Kocik. Fred Ho: FUTURE’S END: COMMUNISM AND ECOLOGY, REVOLUTION IS THE ONLY SOLUTION AND IT MUST BE LUDDITE! In this talk Fred Ho will ask: what is revolutionary socialist ludditism? Why is it the only solution? Why is it matriarchal (matri-centric) and indigenous-centric and why must these features be the foundation for a truly effectively revolutionary movement? More on Sylvia Federici: (the nature of her talk will be announced in a subsequent email).

3PM-4PM: Performance of the Commons Choir (conceived and directed by Daria Faïn and Robert Kocik). This piece is called Re-English-a re-tuning, an atoning for the fact that our current economic, climate and security crises are consequents of the sonic and connotative qualities of the English language-by means of phonemes as cosmogony; sound sequences as specific biochemical signaling, a reparation narrative, poetry as protection, and full recovery of the lost optative mood. With Aretha Aoki, Margot Basset, Chung-chen Chang , Stephen Cooper, Levi Gonzalez, Hazuki Homma, Masumi Kishimota, Dora Koimtzi, Athena Kokoronis, Martin Lanz, Mina Nishimura, Peter Sciscioli, Kensaku Shinohara and Samita Sinha.

4PM-5PM: Screening of Collecting Collective Phase I: Filmic interpretations of commoning directed by Iki Nakagawa with contributions from Caterina Verde and Douglas Manson.
