Artists, activists, scholars, Lower East Side youth, and gun violence survivors will come together this Friday for a 24-hour performance titled George Emilio Sanchez: Bang Bang Gun Amok II. George Emilio Sanchez is a performance artist, writer, and activist, who, for the second year in a row, is putting together a performance calling for an end to America’s culture of violence.
The event, which will begin at 6pm, is presented in partnership with University Settlement and hosted by Abrons Art Center. Expect performances from Nicky Paraiso, Director of Programming at La MaMa; poet Tyehimba Jess, author of Olio; performer and dance writer Charmaine Warren; and many more. The artists will address the ways in which gun culture is embedded into US history through music, dance, theater, comedy, mural-making, discussion, healing practices, and more. The final performance begins at 5:30pm the following day, to culminate the 24-hour event.
A full schedule can be found here, and for those who can’t attend late into the night, the performances will be live streamed here. The event is free, but there is a sliding scale suggested donation between $5 and $20. Tickets are available at the box office.
When: Friday, December 14, 6pm–Saturday, December 15, 6pm
Where: University Settlement’s Speyer Hall (184 Eldridge Street, Lower East Side, Manhattan)
