-Thursday, September 13th, 7:30pm: Open Stage!
SubRosa's take on Open Mic. Once a month. Every month.
Sign ups at 7:30pm. Show at 8! Each act will get 5-10 minutes depending on the evening.
This is a space for performance of all kinds. A space to be witnessed in your work. Performance art. Drag. Dance. Poetry. Music. Essays. Rants. Interactive games. Magic. This is an Open Stage.
With a critique of capitalism and acknowledgement of intersectional systems of oppression, we honor and wish to uplift less heard voices including those of queer, trans, femme, people of color and indigenous folks. We strive to create a brave space where we work with what and who is in the room.
We hope for this space to serve the radical performing artists in Santa Cruz and are open to collaboration! Donations accepted and appreciated. https://www.facebook.com/events/563606190737352/

-Monday, September 17th, 7pm: The Curfews//Floating Room//Drowse//No Bootstraps
*Floating Room (Portland), Gray Pop https://floatingroom.bandcamp.com/ and https://www.facebook.com/floatingroom/ "Despite all the talk about leashes and parks, "Dog" captures the very human experience of feeling limited by someone else. Led by Maya Stoner, Floating Room's excellent 2016 debut, Sunless, sifted through the emotional wreckage of an abusive relationship. False Baptism does too, but with clearer eyes—processing trauma can take a lifetime, so obviously, it can also take multiple records."
**Drowse (Portland), sound sculpture https://drowse.bandcamp.com/ and https://www.facebook.com/drowseportland/ "This installation showcases four found objects that have been re-engineered into interactive sculptural instruments. The artists use these objects to create sounds and explore their natural surroundings. All music has been created by the artists and was recorded in Skagaströnd using the sculptures, a field recorder, and the computer. Video projections recorded while at living NES Artist Residency around certain regions of desolate Northern Iceland."
***No Bootstraps (Santa Cruz), satire pop geared toward fellow cogs, breaking the circle, fighting the police, and so much glitter it's coming out of your eyes. https://nobootstraps.bandcamp.com/
