(Post by Jason Tseng. Picture by Anna Rahn of multiple BREATHE FREE rehearsals.) I wasn’t planning on getting my hands dirty. When I was asked to join the planning committee for Flux’s Food:Soul – BREATHE FREE event, I soon learned that the day of the event I would be out of town on a business trip….

‘Secure Communities’ — An Information Circus

‘Secure Communities’ — An Information Circus

 (Post by Christine Zagrobelny.) Early in my research for this piece, these removal numbers from the Department of Homeland security, stretching from 1892 to 2013 caught my attention.  I wanted to understand how the staggering jump during the last ~10 years happened. I took a preliminary look at the history of immigration legislation, but the…

Flux Sunday: 2/22/15

(post and iphone photos by Isaiah Tanenbaum) (What is Flux Sunday?) It was lovely to return to The Loisaida Center for the second Flux Sunday of our residency there! While Gus and Heather took Mercena back to Forest Hills, I was left in charge with a terminal case of post-rehearsal brain. Thanks to all our participants for keeping things bouncing…

Mother of Exiles

(Photos and post by Emily Hartford. Pictured: Collin McConnell, Antonio Minino, Daryl Lathon, Carl Li, Stephanie Willing, Lori E. Parquet.)

The Salvage Project

The Salvage Project

The Salvage Project: Behind every special object we keep, there’s something even more important: a story. From the Rockaways to Fukushima, from New Orleans to Port-au-Prince, our world continues to grapple with how to rebuild after disaster. What do we let go of from Before, and what do we search for in the ruins of After? With…

Flux Sunday 2/15/15

(What is Flux Sunday?) This past Flux Sunday was a very special one because it was our first event during our residency at the Loisaida Center. We had a great turnout of folks from the Flux community and some new faces from the Loisaida community. Despite temperatures outside of 4 degrees with wind chills of…

Flux Sunday, 2/8/15

(Post and photo above by August Schulenburg. Photos below by Isaiah Tanenbaum.) (What is Flux Sunday?) We returned to Judson for our most jam-packed Flux Sunday of 2015. The theme of the Sunday, if you were wont to find one, was a fascination with very unusual after/other lives: sim worlds, churches of the undead, ghosts…

Flux Sunday, 1/25/15

(Photos and post by Rachael Hip-Flores.) On January 25th, a super band of theater artists braved the cold to get in one last Flux Sunday before super storms and Super Bowls took over the tail end of January. Science and art flew through the air like snowflakes made of footballs with scenes from Jason Tseng’s…
