CURRICULUM is a monthly reading/performance that asks: What would a curriculum for collective study and political action look and feel like? Can simply being present together be a form of learning, a way of transforming one another? What is recuperable from decades past? What can we do that we have not yet done? The second CURRICULUM features writer and performer Amelia Bande, who describes this forthcoming work as:
A collective rehearsal, glowing capsules of intimacy. Our corrugated hunger will jump from the screen to the stage. Choreographed emojis and memes. Sad songs performed live to send later via text message. Do we live inside a miracle?
