Sans
 
Sans is a moving and thought-provoking production that challenges the stigmas of the classical ideas of gender and power dynamics. With one dancer, one actor, and one cellist, it merges the worlds of dance, theatre, and classical music to shine the light of our modern world on classic stories from our history. We hope you will be able to join us on this beautiful journey.

One Catches Light Festival
 
Brooklyn Gypsies presents the second-annual One Catches Light Festival, celebrating new solo work of five writers associated with the company, with stand-up comic Olander Big O Wilson presiding over the evenings. Icarus in the L.E.S. is a kaleidoscopic performance-poem by Nic Adams, with the wax-winged hero chasing his destiny and scouting out the divide between artistic achievement and personal happiness. I Have No Room for the Broken, written by Angela Abreu, is a play about a cascade toward romantic ruin. In Please Google Ukraine, Artem Yatsunov leads the audience through a colorful and somewhat-exaggerated depiction of his homeland. Brooklyn Gypsies first commissioned piece, Anna Peretz Rogovoy’s How difficult is it for one body, is a choreographed rumination on stolen homes, identities and truths. The host himself, Olander Big O Wilson, brings What the F*** Was I Thinking?, his raunchy comedy talking politics, personal life and his transition from the South Carolina countryside to New York City. Part of the Exponential Festival.

Procession
 
Procession combines Home Sweet Home’s macabre accouterments, with copious fog, carefully chosen tracks, and ambiguously sado-masochistic projections. The music offerings are a captivating mix of both classics and the new -- but always staying within the realms of danceable melancholia. It’s not uncommon to hear selections ranging from Skinny Puppy to A Place to Bury Strangers and from Cold Cave to Grimes, all peppered with the likes of say, Cabaret Voltaire, Psychic TV, Bauhaus, and Siouxsie -- on a given night. Discriminating audio and visual curations are the work of DJs and promoters, Cage and Hart. Dress code: none. However, gothic best is always encouraged.

The Glove and the Exponential Festival present:
 
Germany, 1933
 
Experimental performance goes DIY this January in Bushwick when the Exponential Festival comes to the Glove. Opening in the summer of 2016 on the edge of Bushwick and Bed-Stuy, the Glove is a new DIY performance that has already brought drag shows, film screenings, electronic and noise music, popular Brooklyn bands, and art openings into its second story warehouse space. The Exponential Festival is in its second year and this January will highlight Brooklyn theater spaces by offering a range of experimental performance pieces developed in New York. Several shows from the festival will find themselves premiering at the Glove, a victory for performing artists who long for a NYC with limitless opportunities for artists to present new material.
 
The Glove is as an inclusive space for multi-disciplinary performing and visual arts. Members of the DIY space Bohemian Grove decided that a bigger platform was necessary for artists seeking to work in a DIY format in Bushwick. The vision is an inclusive space that crosses disciplinary boundaries to give artists at every level opportunities to share their creative visions. Over the past six months, the space has grown to include disparate communities in Bushwick and beyond. Artists have the opportunity to fund their projects simply by getting the word out.

Witch Taint: The Black Metal Dialogues Live
 
Dave Hill and Phil Costello (and about 500 other things that people can't handle) read from their infamous email exchanges live in New York. In 2004, comedian Dave Hill began posing online as a teenager from Gary, Indiana.
 
Named Lance, the self-proclaimed King of Black Metal and sole member of the fictional black metal band Witch Taint in an attempt to get himself signed to a Norwegian Black Metal record label on the strength of one excruciatingly bad song. The email exchanges between Dave/Lance and the Norwegian Black Metal record label owner (now found at www.theblackmetaldialogues.com) are now the stuff of legend in the metal community and beyond. People as far as Norway buy Witch Taint t-shirts on the regular, which Dave is super pumped about.
 
On Thursday, Dave and his friend, musician Phil Costello (Satanicide, Diamondsnake, Tragedy) will stage the first ever live reading of the aforementioned emails, complete with corpse paint, ill-fitting black clothing, and -- if all goes as planned -- a live and mildly irritated goat. There will also be a live performance by Witch Taint for the first and possibly last time ever. This promises to be the most extreme and kvlt thing that has ever happened ever and most people won’t be able to handle it. So there. This will all be happening at Saint Vitus in Greenpoint, the most metal place in
New York City besides the Port Authority men’s room.

Glasshouse’s Winter Residency 2017: Arta Balina in Residence
 
Arta Balina invites audience for one to one meal experiences that are sculptural performances serving breakfast, lunch and dinner at Glasshouse’s gallery. Audience are welcome to attend as observers or register as participants.
 
Arta Balina is a multimedia artist based in Amsterdam whose interest primarily lays in video and performance art. In her work she reflects on social contexts and explores new possibilities within the everyday. Arta has shown her works in various exhibitions and events in the Netherlands. Her videos and performance has been shown in the EYE filmmuseum in Amsterdam.
 
The following performance is part of Edible Bodies program at Glasshouse: Food is a relational actant. It manifests a temporary otherness- once swallowed its coherence gradually dissipates until it completely absorbs in the body. Once dissolved it becomes our cells. The edible gets assimilated into us. It has a formative power which acts on the body. It's a process that performs much longer than the act (of eating). For most of us, it's a daily happening. A repeated ordinary act. The edible as a truly immersive, relational, durational performance of an other is the focus of this singular performance program.
 
Founded in 2007 Glasshouse is the art-life-lab of artist Lital Dotan and photographer Eyal Perry, hosting artistic practices that are based on immersive performance and participatory art in the domestic sphere. Glasshouse in Williamsburg hosts performances, exhibitions, residency program and festivals, all dedicated to promote deeper understanding of performative practices and social discourse.

* Visual Poetry Project: Seeking Submissions. The Visible Poetry Project is looking for poets and filmmakers (producers, directors, DPs, and editors) to get involved with our April 2017 series. The Visible Poetry Project will bring together a collective of young filmmakers to create a series of videos that present poems as short films. Throughout the month of April -- National Poetry Month -- we will release one visual poem each day. Poetry is a visual medium but is rarely told using an explicitly visual language; by pairing filmmakers with poets, the series will explore the ways in which these two mediums can complement each other. With an emphasis on recruiting artists with unique perspectives and from diverse backgrounds, the project will provide a platform for filmmakers and poets to gain more exposure for their work. To learn more about the project, or to apply to be involved as a filmmaker or poet, visit our website: visiblepoetryproject.com. The deadline for applications is Friday, January 27, 2017. You will be notified by January 30 if you’ve been selected to be involved. Please email visiblepoetryproject]at]gmail.com with any questions.

***** Unofficial Balls *****
 
spectrevision.net/2017/01/20/unofficial-balls/
 
"There are official and unofficial balls. Official ones get sponsored by big donors and corporations looking to curry favor. Donald Trump’s Presidential Inaugural Committee has raised a reported $90 to $100 million to fund its multiday celebration -- a record-breaking figure. But in a surprise, Trump is holding only three official balls.
 
Many balls have gone wrong. In 1829, Andrew Jackson’s many ardent supporters -- fueled by whiskey-laced punch -- ran amok at an inauguration day open house at the White House, breaking up furniture and shocking denizens of Washington society. The party has been cited as the reason why balls were henceforward held in other venues."

nonsense nyc is a discriminating resource for independent art, weird events, strange happenings, unique parties, and senseless culture in new york city.

we like rock bands and experimental musicians and arty films and galleries and museums and big street festivals, but we can find information about all of those things in other places. we generally will not list these kind of things on their own. that leaves that other stuff, the stuff that has no name or a name that you feel really self-conscious saying out loud, like "underground."

we publish more or less once a week on fridays in easy digest format. if you sign up, the important thing to remember is that the nonsense nyc happens because of you. that means we rely on you to let us know what events you are organizing and what events you are attending. please keep us up to date and don't assume that we'll find out about something from someone else. our job is to gather, edit, organize, and filter; your's is to make interesting thing happen and let us know about them. (and we love you, and the other people on this list love you, for that effort.)

also, feel free to send us editorial comments. we certainly don't endorse every event on this list, nor do we attend all of them. that means it's nice to hear what you have to say. for instance, let us know if you had the best time of your life last weekend, or, conversely, if you felt like you were cheated out of $5 by some group that sounded good but turned out to be hippie drummers.

anyway, please enjoy this list and remember to do your part to make new york a better place to live.
