Occupy Broadway

For anyone who maybe interested:


Dear creative community,
You are receiving this email because you have either shown interest already or we think your presence would help make this event a success.

Begins Dec. 2nd at 6pm
Meet at Times Square between 46th and 47th streets south of the red staircase
A 24 Hour Performance Occupation
This is Creative Resistance!

On Dec 2nd at 6pm, hundreds of performers and artists will occupy a privately owned public space near Times Square with 24 hours of non-stop free performances.   

In recent weeks, we have seen a push to tramp on our rights to public assembly, public space and by extension democracy itself. 

In response, we join a global struggle from Tahrir Square to Davis, California with occupation as a form of creative resistance.  Rather than oppose something, we are using public space to create a more colorful image of what our streets could look like, with public performances, art, and music in once vacant corporate, bonus plazas. Through this movement, New York re-imagines itself as a work of art, rather than a retail shopping mall.  With capitalism gone mad, foreclosures increasing, and bank crises consuming whole communities, we are signaling through the flames that there is another way of living.  Join us.

Occupy public space.  Reclaim democracy.  Enjoy the show. 

Get off the sidelines and break through the third wall.

How to be involved:

-be part of the carnival opening ceremony with Rude Mechanical Orchestra- jugglers, stilt-walkers, puppeteers, clowns, hoopers, and more! 6-7pm Friday

-perform with your group in a 5 mins. to 1 hour time slot.  Music acts before 10pm and after 6am.  Confirm ASAP with a couple time suggestions that could work.  If you are open, please say so.

-Show up and help us occupy with your body, enjoy the shows!

-Spread the word

-We need legal, food, art, sign-painting, media, MCs.  Any and all help to make it a safe, creative, well-documented event

Andy, how great that sounds and what a wonderfully entertaining, constructive way to bring a fine message to New Yorkers and visitors alike and to garner world wide attention.  Sometimes diversions from a more in your face tactic will work with people as well and even better, advocacy comes in many forms outside of protests, which are fine and necessary as well.

I will do my best to get there next Friday or Saturday.

Jody :)
