PAUL (Angelina Dreem)
An Only Child
Curated by Caitlin Baucom
We are pleased to announce Sunday Service: Caitlin Baucom presents… Orlando Estrada, Greem Jellyfish, PAUL (Angelina Dreem), QUALIATIK, Lorelei Ramirez, and An Only Child.
This month, Knockdown Center invites Caitlin Baucom to host our free monthly performance series Sunday Service. The evening, titled A Raging Grace, will gather artists across disciplines who are lit from within by a burning well, and rather than combust, they use its fuels to go higher and brighter.
‘It’s like having a sickness that gets more fierce as it passes on to wellness. We don’t have to view that period as an invitation to despair, but as a sign of potential transformation… whatever pain we are experiencing…’ –bell hooks
Working across performative disciplines, the artists included are also active as organizers and participants in their broader communities, acknowledging that the roots of rage go beyond the merely personal and its power can feed the world. Together, ‘we admit that we don’t want to see the world blown up; we are for the human species.’ –Andrea Juno & V. Vale, Angry Women.

About Sunday Service
Sunday Service is a curated series of short-form live performances across mediums. Taking place the first Sunday of each month in the Ready Room, a guest curator is invited to organize a salon style evening of in-progress works, performances, and presentations, anchored by a framing principle such as a question, proposition, theme, or formal structure. Sunday Service encourages works in progress and interdisciplinary endeavors showcased in a lo-fi environment to foster experimentation and critical discourse amongst peers.
