algorythmeticblackbase 10 + Iranian Diaspora Women Writers + Holly Bass

algorythmeticblackbase 10: Fri, July 14, 2006 9-10am, Hill Auditorium, High Museum of Art, Atlanta

Atlanta-based artist Torkwase Dyson has put together a panel of African American artists who work with digital technologies for the National Black Arts Festival (NBAF) The National Alliance of African and African American Art Support Groups 8th Annual Conference*. The copy from the postcard at right reads:
As artists continue to update ways to articulate black cultural landscapes and disseminate their expression--digital composition and context are mediators of social change. The goal of this multi-disciplinary panel is to engage the critical and ongoing discourse in digital blackness. It will provide an overview of ideas, movements and technological artistic practices, which have shaped new media aesthetics. Presenters/Performers--Mendi+Keith Obadike, Brian Horton, Stan Woodard, and Cinqué Hicks. Moderated by Torkwase Dyson.

Holly Bass @ the DC Hip Hop Theater Festival

I had the good fortune to perform/present on a double-bill with writer, journalist, dancer, performer, Hip Hop scholar, and Cave Canem alum Holly Bass a little over a year ago where she wowed the folks with her tales of burgeoning Baby Diva life and some serious moves in six-inch platform heels. Now she's got a new dance theater piece (Uppity Negroes on) Parade from which she'll be performing excerpts at the Hip Hop Theater Festival in Washington, D.C. Bass is actually the originator of the term "hip hop theater" which she penned in a 1999 article for American Theatre Magazine. An article from today's Washington Post, covers that piece of history as well as Bass' show as part of its festival coverage.

You can also hear Bass talking about the Hip Hop Theater on the Kojo Nnamdi Show.

Holly Bass @ Hip Hop Theatre Festival
Thursday, July 13th at 7pm & Friday, July 14th at 9pm
The Studio Theater
1501 14th St. NW. (Green Line to U Street)
Tip from Ms. Bass: This is part of an evening of short plays. Come early for best seating—these shows tend to sell out.

Let Me Tell You Where I've Been: New Writing by Women of the Iranian Diaspora
Intersection for the Arts Event
446 Valencia (btwn 15th/16th), Mission District
San Francisco, CA
Tuesday, July 18, 2006 7:30pm
$5-15 sliding scale

Poet and writer Mahru Elahi, a former Cali neighbor and fellow VONA alum, sent me a notice about this new collection in which her work appears. Let Me Tell You Where I've Been: New Writing by Women of the Iranian Diaspora was edited by poet, writer, and scholar Persis M. Karim and published by University of Arkansas Press. This San Francisco reading will feature eight writers, including Haleh Hatami, Esther Kamkar, Mojdeh Marashi, Farnoosh Seifoddini, Shadi Ziaei, Roxanne Varzi and Elahi, as well as Aleph Null, a live 6-piece world music and jazz ensemble celebrating Iranian American culture in the San Francisco Bay Area.

*My apologies if my original misinformation led to anyone with a NBAF pass thinking they would be able to attend this event, or thinking it was open to the public (I feel your pain). The Conference and Festival do have at least one shared event but are not the same entity: admittance to one will not gain you admittance to another.
