Dr T presents Visual Music Live featuring
Dr T – live video mixing with:
 Dave Bryant – Keys / Neil Leonard – reeds / John Voigt -- bass
 Jeremy Van Buskirk -- Electronics

The musicians will play six duets and a quartet, accompanied by my  video improvisations. I'm looking forward to playing with John again,  I did my first live visual improvs in events led by him in (gulp)
 1973. I've performed frequently with Dave and Neil -- this willl be  my first time playing with Jeremy.

 My projections are produced by mixing multiple DVD sources with a video mixer and effects processor. The sources consist of  computer-manipulated original material derived from my still  photography and videography. The original subject matter is usually  recognizable, but sometimes processed to complete abstraction.  Sometimes the projections and music respond directly to each other --
 sometimes they simply co-exist.

 Many of my finished video pieces (both studio and live) can be seen at http://www.youtube.com/Tobenfeld
with a piece from the Spring Series at

Those of you who attend or perform at events at Outpost 186 may find my photo essay "Improvisations from an Outpost"

Old Time Musketry presents a joyous music that draws on the exuberant spirit of early jazz, the poignant melodies and soulful grooves of rock and folk music, the energy and spontaneity of free improvisation, and a willfully experimental attitude towards combining these elements into a unique vision of American music. Old Time Musketry joined forces in early 2009 in Brooklyn and has been developing their unique sound by performing widely in the New York area and around the Northeast. The band will release their debut album in the fall of 2012 on Steeplechase Records.

7/16, 7/23, 7/30, 8/6, 8/13, 8/27

Drag King 101 +Performance is your opportunity to explore the inner Drag King inside you AND have a chance to strut your stuff onstage!  During this 6-week intensive we will explore the ins and outs of what makes a successful Drag King through gender illusion, costuming, physicality, character creation, acting technique, movement, and story development.  This course culminates with each student creating their own performance piece to showcase at our Drag King Slam!

The slam event will be held on Tuesday, August 28th at the Midway Cafe in Jamaica Plain!

So, what’s a Drag King again?:  Well, perhaps you’ve heard of a Drag Queen?  Simply put, a Drag King is the counterpart – a performance critiquing the masculine character in society.  The drag culture at large generally injects politics, pop-culture commentary, sexuality, orientation, identity and gender exploration into the center of much of its material…  While we each develop our own POV on the art form, we’ll also touch on: Bio Queens and Drag Queens, High Femme Performance, Transgender Identity vs. Gender Performance, Queer and Straight: identity/behavior/orientation, and so much more…  This workshop is open to people of all gender identities who are interested in performing as a King.

UnAmerika’s Sweetheart Karin Webb has been performing, writing, directing, and teaching for over 20 years in various techniques including Character Creation, Monologue Writing, Radical Gender Theater, Drag King Performance, Puppetry, Storytelling, Acting for Teens, and Movement Improv.  She is an original member of the award-winning performance troupe “All The Kings Men (ATKM)”, and has been creating characters and writing for them since the age of 11.  Karin has a BFA in acting from Boston University, a certificate in Ensemble and Physical Theater from Dell’Arte International School of Physical Theater, and spent time at the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts (LAMDA).  She has toured as a performer with various companies extensively around the United States, Canada, and London, and has had her writing produced for theater.  Karin was awarded an Elliot Norton award, and is an IRNE nominee for her original work as a puppeteer with "Elephant Tango Ensemble".  ATKM has been named “Best Lesbian Performance Troupe” by Curve Magazine, “Best Drag King Troupe” by GO NYC Magazine, and they have won and been nominated for numerous “Readers Choice Awards” over the past 10 years.  “Play In The Gray” is a full-length documentary about ATKM, and an interview with them has been published in the “National Gay and Lesbian Review”.  Karin is the creator of "Axe To Ice Productions" and "Dream Weird", and the much loved "Bent Wit Cabaret" was her brainchild.
