Fat and Other Stories: Some Writing About Sex
Ishmael Houston-Jones
FAT AND OTHER STORIES could also be subtitled “some writing about New York.” Here is the grime of the East Village apartment where the illegal tenant takes off his socks last; the brown walls of the Westside Club in Chelsea that offer little privacy; and the basement of the all male strip club in Times Square, now gone. New York is the final bedfellow in this sometimes frank, sometimes dreamlike collection. Houston-Jones choreographs the ghosts of this self-erasing city of lovers and strangers.

First publicly available at performances of THEM
by Ishmael Houseton-Jonhes, Chris Cochrane and Dennis Cooper
Performance Space New York, June 2018.

The Books of the
LION'S JAW PERFORMANCE + DANCE FESTIVAL
2017 & 2018

festival participants
The (now) ongoing Lion’s Jaw Book project invites festival participants to experiment with the relationship of forms of performance and dance to processes of archiving and publishing. The project devises and facilitates different ways in which festival participants might generate and interact with the contents of each edition with the goal of articulating a sort of moving-average of the festival's concerns—a book-object capable of critical thinking and reflection, as well as play and disobedience.

In upcoming 2018 edition we worked towards goals of increased transparency and access by hosting a LIVE ARCHIVE presence, complete with chatroom, daily uploads of scans, written reflections and more. Visit the LIBVE ARCHIVE here.

PERIODICALS

Musical Theater Today
Co-Founding Editor's:
Ben Van Buren & Lucas Tahiruzzaman Syed

Contributing Editors:
Natasha Sinha, Shoshana Greenberg, Timothy Huang & Ian Axness
MUSICAL THEATER TODAY is a new, yearly periodical inspired by the extraordinary variety of artists, institutions, and audiences engaged in the musical theatre world. While many endeavors across the industry appear to share individual artists (composers, performers, etc.), it seems that they rarely have the opportunity to come together in discussion. By gathering as many creative viewpoints as possible, MTT hopes to encourage artists in all aspects of the industry to continue to pursue diversity of narrative, performance, and production.
