Originally presented in 2013 at The Kitchen in New York, ACTIONS!, a contemporary form of “art workers’ theater” that revisits political and art “actions,” including a workers’ strike against The Museum of Modern Art in 2000, presented alongside ADJUNCTS!, a new work conceived as a dance/collective poem addressing current education and labor issues in L.A. art schools. ACTIONS!/ADJUNCTS! features participants from the original performance as well as students, graduates, and adjunct faculty from throughout the L.A. art community. A discussion with the participants follows Sunday’s performance.
