SOLVENT, by Vanessa Goodman/Action at a DistanceCirculatory systems, both internally and externally, are inspirations for me and work. 'Solvent' explores these systems and creates space for an intimate relationship between the viewer and the performer. During a time when it is difficult to feel close to people, it is the hope that for a fleeting moment, we can enter into something together for a shared experience. Created by long-time friends and collaborators Loscil and Action at a Distance, 'Solvent' explores themes surrounding water and the body.ACTION / MAGIC !

WHAT HAVE YOU DONE FOR US LATELY?If you don’t have a good answer, we’ll send you our Venmo username.The Reparations Show is a variety show that will center stories created by and about Black and Indigenous artists. This weekly show kicks off on Juneteenth as part of FRIGID New York’s Queerly Festival, and each week will be hosted by a different BIPOC artist. The show is the brainchild of Erez Ziv, managing artistic director of FRIGID New York, and Kevin R. Free, the Curator of The Queerly Festival. It was created as a way to offer paid opportunities for BIPOC artists. Besides featuring work by these artists, each episode will include a segment called “This Week in Reparations” that examines an organization’s statement of solidarity with the #BLACKLIVESMATTER movement and keeps track of the work they have done toward that goal since releasing the statement. You can watch the show right here, or join us on Facebook Live to send us comments!
