I am psyched to be opening the year right with a new series created with Alexis Wilkinson at the Knockdown Center titled SUNDAY SERVICE! I've been thinking about the ways we can communicate about subjects, how discourse might look as performance, how sharing helps create dynamic conversations, how making is speaking.
For the premier of Sunday Service, Knockdown Center invites MAMIcurators Ali Rosa-Salas and Dyani Douze who in turn have invited Alexandra Bell, NIC Kay, Isabel Flower, Marcel Rosa-Salas, and YATTA to share projects in development across movement, writing, visual art, and sonic practices. With an insistence on collective care, we’ll process what we’ve witnessed together in a dialogue over drinks.

Sunday Service is a curated series of short-form live performances across mediums. Taking place the first Sunday of each month in the Ready Room, a guest curator is invited to organize a salon style evening of in-progress works, performances, and presentations, anchored by a framing principle such as a question, proposition, theme, or formal structure. Sunday Service encourages works in progress and interdisciplinary endeavors showcased in a lo-fi environment to foster experimentation and critical discourse amongst peers.
