NO MICROPHONE is an evening of performance experiments. A studio practice for the material of presence, No Microphone is a platform for trying something out before knowing exactly what it is, aiming to increase access to the luxuries of time, space, and human attention. The series brings artists together across disciplines, scenes, and institutional affiliations, opening up space for psycho-emotional expansion as a direct tactic for surviving/transcending late capitalism and strategizing together towards an uncertain future. Creating a context for experimentation and intricate connection, the event is held in a different Manhattan location each time, weaving like a parasite through the landscape of arts institutions and cliques, propagating an atmosphere of possibility and alliance among artists in the city. NO MICROPHONE is organized by Khaela Maricich.
