Legal Tender


Legal Tender is a live assemblage of multi-media performance, video, and text material drawing across a yearlong collaborative devising practice, its marginalia, and postscript.

Poet Kyle Dacuyan, in collaboration with Antigravity Performance Project (directors Michael T. Williams and Francesca Montanile) and artists Andalyn Young, Kate Liebman, and Michael Costagliola, present this new range of work in a collaboratively-designed digital studio, with a live program featuring poems, meditations, and movement oriented around pleasure, flux, and connection.

In addition to the two live digital salons, the public is encouraged to access a User-Navigated Digital Art Installation featuring poetry readings, movement, meditation, and sensory experiences. Join Antigravity on a digital-orbital adventure through work and pleasure.

Legal Tender was developed in part at Bethany Arts Community and through the Camp Fringe residency supported by Independence Foundation. An initial iteration of this work was presented at Ars Nova’s ANT Fest in June 2019. Production at FringeArts supported in part by the Charlotte Cushman Foundation and Georgetown University’s Competitive Grant-in-Aid Research Program.
