I will be presenting here on Friday (8/23) as Q-PON, with the Church of LOL. Forwarded invitation from Khokhoi:
dreampr00fx presents... MEMORY ENCHANTMENT at Powrplnt (a community digital center in Bushwick, Brooklyn) 6:30pm on Friday, August 23 (Internaut Day) to celebrate anniversary of World Wide Web gone public >>>
Our embodied experiences have transformed from digital techno-ecologies. Thumb-scrolling & finger-thinking, whether as mobile phone or computer users, our bodies have adapted accordingly. While wires & wifi help us communicate across planet earth, how do we keep in touch with our own bodies?
@dreampr00fx conjures an evening of MEMORY ENCHANTMENT to re-member the body as techno-ecology. Offerings include Cyborg Yoga, medicinal elixirs (blueberry juice / peppermint matcha / butterfly pea brew & more), video art & altar installation for asdfhjkl; (godlord of internet) by the CosmiKnots (@theparhelia & @kkdelavida), a summer re-wind of WYFY School by @bufu_byusforus, a punk ritual by @brujaluna & more tba.
“[In] our time, a mythic time, we are all chimeras, theorized and fabricated hybrids of machine and organism; in short, we are cyborgs… We're inside of what we make, and it's inside of us. We're living in a world of connections — and it matters which ones get made and unmade." - Donna J. Haraway // Cyborg Yoga activates practices of hatha yoga, kundalini yoga, asana, pranayama, somatic movement & yoga nidra to release excess stress accumulated from daily digital activity. Through 60-minutes of embodied flow, we re-program & re-circuit our cyborg selves/cells. We focus on cultivating inner serenity at root core to confidently transform the world around us.
Energy exchange is $10-15 +/or fruit to share. No one will be turned away for lack of funds or fruit. Bring your own yoga mat, or let us know (24 hours in advance) if you need one to borrow. Cyborg Yoga offering is capped, so please RSVP early by email to email@example.com or IG/Venmo @dreampr00fx. After 8pm, entry is $5-$10 sliding scale donation for elixir drink + neural nom noms + ritual performances.
