7:30pm through Sunday, December 11 at 7:30pm
a 360º immersive sci-fi video opera Seven shows, limited seating: Thursday, December 8 at 7:30 Friday, December 9 at 7:30 & 9:30 Saturday, December 10 at 7:30 & 9:30 Sunday, December 11 at 5:30 & 7:30 tickets at liminalgroup.org $20 general (student and artist rates available) mature content, recommended ages 14+ This December 8-11, Liminal fights back with Marilyn Monroe contre les vampires, an operatic multimedia installation performance of a 1972 darkly comic anti-establishment play written by influential enfant terrible filmmaker Rainer Werner Fassbinder. Itself influenced by Arthur Schnitzler's La Ronde, sci-fi comics, and copious alcohol use, Fassbinder's Marilyn Monroe contre les vampires is a hilarious and unflinching stab at all classes of society. In this (literally) biting social satire, Phoebe Zeitgeist is a singing alien sent to Earth to report back an eyewitness account of human democracy in action. She encounters characters from all areas of life who educate her well on what it means to be human. However, Phoebe has a problem: she learns our words, but she still can't figure US out. Marilyn Monroe drives a fever pitch, culminating in the sexiest version of Hegel's Science of Logic ever set to music. Beer and wine will be served. Liminal combines performance art, video and opera into a unique, immersive experience. A hybrid of theatre and gallery installation, of live performance and video, there is no central stage and audiences are invited to walk around the 360-degree videoscape and performance (seating is provided for those needing it). The viewer encounters both live and recorded performers: a ghostly ensemble of video actors projected onto screens throughout the space, interacting with each other, with Phoebe and with the audience to create a unique video-opera experience. Also: Vampires. TRIGGER WARNINGS: substance abuse, sexual harassment, semiosis, societal complacency, firearms, fetishes, Donald J. Trump, structuralism, choking, white people, biting, suicide, Hegel. Featuring Fassbinder zines by Going Places written by Rainer Werner Fassbinder translated by Denis Calandra direction, original music and media design by John Berendzen developed by John Berendzen and the ensemble costume by Manot VonRocket and Faerin Millington video and tech by Rory Breshears, Ben Purdy, Sharon Porter, Jared Lee featuring Carissa Burkett (soprano) as Phoebe Zeitgeist with Linda Austin, Todd Van Voris, Carla Grant, Wayne Haythorn, Eleanor Johnson, Don Kern, Alex Reagan, Danielle Ross, and introducing Evan Corcoran as Donald J. Trump

The 5th annual Improvisational Summit of Portland brings together the best musicians, dancers and experimental performers in the city and combines them with a small group of visiting musicians, creating a unique event. This year we feature a number of unbelievable artists at the beautiful Disjecta contemporary art center in North Portland with contributions from all corners of Portland's vibrant performing scene Round Robin Improvised Duets. Twelve locally renowned performers, curated by Reed Wallsmith of Blue Cranes improvise together for the first time in a round robin series of five minute improvised duets. $12 for one-day pass. $30 for three-day pass. All ages. Featuring Performances By: Golden Retriever Pebble Trio Portland Jazz Composers Ensemble Holland Andrews Ava Mendoza Vinny Golia Juniana Lanning John Gross Battle Hymns and Gardens Thick in the Throat, Honey I’d Rather not Talk About it Rich Halley Consumer CHOIR Sponsored by KBOO 90.7 FM, KMHD 89.1 FM, Disjecta and Regional Arts And Culture Council. Supported by Revival Drum Shop, Mississippi Records, Control Voltage, Beech Street Parlor, Map Room, Type Foundry, Penofin, Beacon Sound, North, Stereophonic Mastering, Por Que No?, PoShines, OLO, SDMPDX, Trade Up Music, Museum of Contemporary Craft and The Waypost. Golden Retriever Local duo consisting of Jonathan Sielaff and Matt Carlson utilizes monophonic instruments to skillfully weave melodies and harmonies into polyphonic tapestries. Golden Retriever started in 2008 when Sielaff and Carlson played together in the experimental pop groups “Parenthetical Girls” and “Au”. Sielaff and Carlson are able to quilt together the bass clarinet and synthesizer into abstract layers of disconnected melodies, connected through harmonic balance on the border if airy, meditative music and dense saturated atmosphere. They have released recordings on the labels Root Strata and Thrill Jockey Records. The Pebble Trio This jazz trio led by keyboardist Thollem McDonas is an eclectic free jazz outfit whose goal is to mix different musical styles, genres, eras and epochs in untraditional matters to breakdown any potential cultural, spiritual and geographical barriers that may exist. The trio’s leader, Thollem Mcdonas, was born and raised in San Francisco where he studied classical piano and started composing and improvising. During his 20s and 30s, McDonas was very politically active, and since then has found ways to incorporate these experiences into his music. He has released 50 albums on 22 different labels, and the last decade McDonas has been busy touring and playing over 1000 concerts in North America and Europe. Portland Jazz Composers Ensemble and Holland Andrews The improvisation Summit of Portland is excited an exciting collaboration with the PJCE and Holland Andrews. PJCE is a local jazz big band that was originally started in 2007 by former Portland State University students Andrew Oliver and Gus Slayton. For the past decade, PJCE has been performing original works by jazz musicians from the Pacific Northwest. PJCE’s commitment to exploring the wide textural possibilities of a large jazz ensemble combined with Holland Andrews explorative and minimalist style should result in an interesting product. Ava Mendoza Ava Mendoza’s eclectic guitar playing that draws on elements of classical, blues, Jazz, metal and noise had earned her recognition as the fret board and stompbox wizard in the Oakland noise and free-improvisational music scenes. Since then, Mendoza has relocated to Brooklyn, New York where she plays in her trio Unnatural Ways and has extensively toured the USA and Europe. Mendoza brings an everlasting fluxus moods and energies to her performances. Mendoza does not hesitate to jump from blues finger picking to abrasive metal and walls of noise all with seamless transitions to make the wide variety of sounds very cohesive and personal which a listener can identify as an authentic expression of a musician that does not believe in the boundaries of classification and genres. Vinny Golia Woodwind and percussion multi-instrumentalist Vinny Golia combines Jazz, Contemporary Classical, and World music into deep meditative and flexible performances. Over the years, Golia has been awarded an extensive list of achievements including, but not limited to; National Endowment of the Arts, Lila Wallace Commissioning Program, California Arts Council Meet the Composer, Clausen Foundation of the Arts, Funds for US artists, American Composers Forum, Jazz times TDWR, LA Weekly Achievement Award, and ranked first in Cadence Magazine Writers and Readers Poll. Vinny Golia has also started the label “Nine Winds Records”. Juniana Lanning Since investigating “new Music” and Musique Concrete, Juniana Lanning has been intrigued in sound as music, and music as sound. A graduate from Moorhead University, Lanning studied sound engineering and computer music composition. Her past works and ideas have focused on synthesized-computer compositions and found, natural recordings. After graduating, she has since moved to Portland and focused more on real-time improvised music. She plays in the duo “SevenEngines” with Kyle Bouchard, and created the local label “Fluff and Gravity Records”. Lanning still works as producer and engineer for the label she manages. John Gross John Gross is an experienced jazz tenor and alto saxophonist who has worked and toured extensively throughout his career. Gross has toured and played with jazz artists, such as: Stan Kenton, Lionel Hampton, Toshiko Akiyoshi and spent five years as house band member at Shelly Mannes Hollywood club. Now John Gross resides in the Portland area and teaches at Mir Music and Pacific University. Battle Hymns and Gardens This local 4-piece Portland group is an emerging force in the experimental and improvisational community. BHaG first formed in 20077 and from the beginning they have earned a reputation as one of the best improvised based ensembles in the greater Portland Area. Their music draws influences from improvised free jazz and we as various alternative rock influences. They have played at multiple local festivals and venues that cater to improvised music such as: the Portland jazz Festival, Pdx Pop Now Festival and Creative Music Guild’s Improvised Summit of Portland. Thick in the Throat, Honey Thick in the Throat, Honey is a joint multi-dimensional project undertaken by Claudia F. Savage and John C. Savage. These two artists bring performance, chants, jazz, devotional intoning and spoken word to the stage for a unique set of experiences. This project has been active since 2007. Rich HalleyWe can only speculate that Rich Halley’s celestial and organic music is inspired by his job as a natural biologist. From an early age, it seems that Halley has had a love for both music and the natural world. He started playing the clarinet at 11 years old, and was often to be found outside hiking and camping. Halley eventually went to the University of Chicago where he surrounded himself in Jazz and Blues. Since then, he has traveled and played music in Cairo and Central America. He now lives in Portland and leads a free improvised jazz trio as well as the sextet “Outside Music Ensemble” which focuses on playing acoustic instruments in natural settings. I’d Rather Not Talk About It This new improvised collaboration between Portland musicians Christopher Johnedis and Holland Andrews. This new project started in summer 2015 and has been continually exhibiting their music throughout the Portland area. The improvised performances focus on vocal noise and chaos, and how texture can emerge from walls of noise. Consumer This is the electronic experiment from Matt Palenske. These high paced, high energy performances keep the audience engaged and alert due to the sheer charisma Palenske exudes while ferociously thrashes his keyboard and displays pedal footwork. The sporadic, guttural synth sounds with elements of predictability and spontaneity keep audiences constantly on their feet, but able to find a pseudo-constant beat to lock into.
