Aunts: A Post-Post-Show Conversation with Lucy Sexton

“When you set out to make something new it’s because you don’t like the old thing. And when you do the new thing long enough… you end up becoming the old thing.” (AUNTS)

Following their performance at NYU Skirball on Friday, September 15, AUNTS organizers Laurie Berg, Liliana Dirks-Goodman, Ali Rosa-Salas, and Ash R.T. Yergens will join the Department of Performance Studies for a post-post-show conversation. 

AUNTS was founded by Jmy James Kidd and Rebecca Brooks in 2005 and is currently organized by Laurie Berg and Liliana Dirks-Goodman. An underground platform for dance, AUNTS creates events in unconventional spaces with multiple performers, overlapping performances, open dance parties, multi-disciplinary, body/non-body based, time oriented, finished/experimental/unfinished/process art. Since 2005, AUNTS has organized approximately fifty events and hosted more than four hundred artists from multiple disciplines and at various points in their careers.

Lucy Sexton is the independent producer of the Bessie Awards. A choreographer, director, and producer, she has worked in the field of dance and performance for more than 25 years. Highlights include creating the dance performance duo DANCENOISE, directing the off-Broadway play Spalding Gray; Stories Left to Tell, and producing Charles Atlas’s film The Legend of Leigh Bowery.
