Brother Lovers

BROTHER LOVERS

 

A fateful glance between two ancient warriors in a modern-day disco club resurrects a 5,000-year-old family tragedy and sparks a tense romance.

BROTHER LOVERS is an experimental play written and directed by Brooklyn-based performance and video artist Zavé Martohardjono. The play reinterprets the Mahabharata to reimagine two mythic heroes in a timeless queer tale of love, exile, and disco.

BROTHER LOVERS will première on Friday July 18 at 9pm and Sunday July 20 at 12pm at the Wild Project at 195 East 3rd Street in the Lower East Side as part of the 2014 Fresh Fruit Festival’s program “All Out Shorts III: Legends Through a Glass Queerly.” The play features a diverse cast of queer dancers and theater artists. Interested in crafting a universal narrative about belonging, displacement, and desire, Martohardjono directs and casts BROTHERS LOVERS with performers interchangeably playing its two main characters. Martohardjono weaves in autobiography and poetic personal reflections on identity as a mixed-race Indonesian-American far from “home” and considers Arjuna and Karna’s parable through a genderqueer and transgender lens.

Crossing the Hyphen: Recent Works of Pallavi Sharma

May 31- July 9, 2014
Addison Street Windows Gallery
2018 Addison Street
Berkeley, CA
Opening Reception: June 7th – 1pm – 3pm

The Addison Street Windows Gallery proudly presents Crossing the Hyphen: Art by Pallavi Sharma, an exhibition organized by curator, Demetri Broxton. Crossing the Hyphen reinvents recent installations and video art created by Pallavi Sharma. Sharma’s work is a subtle conversation in identity politics in America. Herself an Indian-American, Sharma explores how the hyphen serves a dual role: allowing the new immigrant to acknowledge their national origins while also allowing for a reinvented identity within a new country. Her work explores the blurring of national identities which occurs through the process of naturalization and movement. In her piece Carry-On, a suitcase lies open filled with grass and grass seeds. The work represents both the immigrant and the cultural heritage an immigrant brings with them—seeds to be planted in a new land. The piece poses the question of whether these seeds will always be exotic and separate, or over time will they become integrated into the larger cultural landscape?

Pallavi Sharma was born and raised in India and immigrated to United States in 1997. She received her BFA and MFA from the Faculty of Fine Arts Baroda, India and received her Ph.D. in Art History from India’s National Museum Institute of History of Art and Conservation, New Delhi, India. Pallavi’s work has been exhibited widely at venues including the Queens Museum of Art, Exit Art, Art Asia Pacific, and Bishop Museum. At present, she is a board member ofAsian American Women Artist Association (AAWAA) and Director of ‘Inner Eye Art’ an ArtConsulting Firm specializing in South Asian Art.

Demetrie Broxton is an independent curator. He was born in Oakland, CA and holds an M.A. in Museum Studies from San Francisco State University. Broxton has been curator with the City of Berkeley since February 2014. His past curatorial projects include Past Forward at the Sargent Johnson Gallery and Decoding Identity at Museum of the African Diaspora.
