Hello all!  I will have a bit part in Andrea Kleine’s new performance piece Rationality. If you are in NYC, you should totally go!

FEBRUARY 5-6, 2011 at 8PM

Andrea Kleine presents her latest project, RATIONALITY, a performance work that re-creates an episode of a live, call-in, cable-access philosophy TV show that aired in Arlington, Virginia in 1992. The particular episode on the topic of “rationality” featured four philosophical symposers descending into crisis when one symposer argues that rationality is irrelevant – rationality cannot rationalize irrationality.

The performers attempt an exact remake of the episode, including a verbatim transcript, live callers, and technical glitches — all performed in Andrea Kleine’s tiny Manhattan apartment — creating an intimate, voyeuristic experience replicating the proximity, scale, and environment of watching television.

Andrea Kleine has presented her interdisciplinary performance works at PS 122, The Kitchen, and The Walker Arts Center, among many other venues in the U.S. and abroad. She has received numerous commissions, grants, and awards including five MacDowell Colony fellowships, the New York Foundation for the Arts fellowship award, and a 2010 NYSCA independent artist commission. Her current project is a series of performance pieces about replication and re-enactment.
