TRAMMEL is a durational performance which explores the work of real-time documentation of live movement as it unfolds over time. The work comes out of an ongoing collaboration between dancer/choreographer Abby Crain and writer/performer David Buuck, its current manifestation engaged with the architecture and “rehearsal aesthetics” of their Milk Bar Projects Room residency. You are invited to arrive at the Milk Bar Project Room anytime during the performance, as it will be unfolding and accreting over three hours each Sunday.

AUGUST 10 AND 11.
Not simply a conference, or a celebration of community, or a presumed politics, or the proper poetry, but a collective investigation of how poets have moved with and through the various militant actions of the last few years in places outside of Oakland. So an attempt to forge new solidarities across different cities, nations, and poetic & political a
practices. What has worked in these other locations? What can we learn from each other as militant activists, cultural workers, poets? What sort of writing might yet be written?
