CASCADA BONITA

DATE & TIME /// December 1, 2017

LOCATION /// Pop-Up location at a vacant storefront – 6759 W. Colfax (next to Casa Bonita in the old “Hollywood Video” location)

DESCRIPTION /// For this event, the collective riffed-off of the image and concept of the waterfall in the nearby kitsch-powerhouse / Denver institution that is Casa Bonita.  Within this vacant storefront exhibition space, the collective wanted to create a poetic, human-powered waterfall with simple materials and actions.  Throughout the 3 hour opening, there was live sound mixing of water-oriented audio and collaged video footage taken from Casa Bonita that covered the floor and ceiling of the cavernous space. While the video and sound added sensorial depth to the space, there was also action and inaction abound while members of the collective slowly and continuously poured water from a series of buckets into and out of a small pool that shimmered beneath two spotlights while a potential swimmer, diver and/or performer perched in stillness on a ladder above the pool.

LUCID

DATE & TIME /// October 19, 2017

LOCATION /// RMCAD, Mary Harris Auditorium, Denver, CO

DESCRIPTION /// For this event, the collective took over the Mary Harris Auditorium for one hour on a Thursday evening.  Inspired by the Lynchian aesthetic of the auditorium, the NGC pursued the simple task of creating a dream-like, droned-out affect to the room through video, performative presence, light/shadow play and sound.  Much of this night was very improvisational and experimental. You can view stills below.  More thorough documentation is forthcoming.

DATE /// August 11, 2017

LOCATION /// Redline, Denver, CO

DESCRIPTION /// For Redline’s event, 48 hours of Socially Engaged Art, we worked with the idea, form and material of the bubble to construct a mixed-media performance on the event’s theme of (Dis)Place.  The text in this performance is all important artist spaces in the city of Denver- mostly galleries and a few cafes.  Some are still open, some are closed.
