New York Radiohole artists to lecture, perform
- Published: April 25, 2013
Antioch College will host a free lecture and performance workshop by New York- based artists Eric Dyer and Maggie Hoffman on Saturday, April 27. The lecture will begin at 1 p.m. in McGregor Hall, room 113 on the Antioch campus. The performance workshop will be held from 2–5 p.m. in McGregor Hall, room 118. The workshop is free and open to the public, but interested parties should contact the Herndon Gallery to reserve a space.
Dyer and Hoffman are founding members of Radiohole, a performance ensemble and on-going experiment in non-hierarchical creative collaboration. Their lecture will blend performance art with a PowerPoint presentation about Radiohole, it’s history and work. The artists will also discuss the installation Feed me, which is a part of Appetite: An American Pastime, the current exhibition in Antioch College’s Herndon Gallery.
The performance workshop, titled “The HoleShop,” is a hands-on exploration of the creative process at Radiohole. Its focus is less concerned with “methods” and “techniques” than with a consideration of what “non-hierarchical” collaboration can mean, and how the artists “play” together in creative collaboration.
Working together in small groups, participants will develop short performances utilizing source material (text, video clips, music) and some of Radiohole’s technologies. Participants should dress in comfortable clothing.
Radiohole has performed at venues in New York City such as The Kitchen, PS122, and in its own space, the Collapsable Hole. The company has toured nationally and internationally. In its 15-year history, Radiohole has created 11 full-length works and earned a reputation as one of New York City’s leading experimental performance companies.
