LA MISSION & KNUCKLE CARTEL PRESENT:

performance/ART 002

Common Revilings


BERLIN, GERMANY.  On March 29th and 30th,  La Mission & Knuckle Cartel will present the second performance in their kunst/WORK series.  (performance/ART) 002:  Common Revilings is an experimental theater/dance performance that is based on (performance/ART) 001: A non-Aristotelian Drama in Five Parts (February, 2013) and La Mission’s second EP “The Good Ship” (official release pending).  The performance is an irrepressible testimony on collective and individual identity, the valid and necessary pursuit of Utopia, and the wonders and perils of the human condition.  This work is a sonic, visual, and sensational milkshake that will, without a doubt, bring both the boys and the girls to the yard (thank you Kelis and The United Dairy Farmers of America).  The performance will be introduced with a lecture from La Mission’s chief demagogue Luis-Manuel Garcia, PhD titled "Utopianism in Dance Music since Disco: A Very Short History".


EVENT DETAILS

Location: Import Projects, Keithstrasse 10, Berlin (Wittenbergplatz)

Date: March 29th and 30th

Time:

March 29th - reception and mini-fundraiser (food and drink by donation) 20.00, lecture and performance 21.00

About La Mission

La Mission, based in Berlin, Germany, is a conceptual record label.  Founded by intelligent, pleasure-seeking freaks in 2012, La Mission writes and releases music, creates experimental performances, and publishes scholarly writing that is both poop-your-pants funny and deadly serious. La Mission is a cult that anyone can join. Even you. We are La Mission. Oh Honey, please don’t give your heart to a world system based on exploitation of the luckless, give your heart to US.


About Knuckle Cartel

Theater is boring.  Fuck it.  Knuckle Cartel makes experimental performance.  Knuckle Cartel’s work treads on the boundaries between dance, performance art, installation, and theater.  Theater is slowly dying, but Knuckle Cartel is not yet dead.  Working with and for collaborators in interesting and complex spaces allows us to draw our dying breaths with integrity.  Knuckle Cartel is the undead dame, the bloodthirsty mistress, the unsteady lover, the crying divorcee, and the empty bed.  Knuckle Cartel is the thing that weird, quiet, kinda creepy neighbor kid grew up to be.  Still scared and still very, very alone.

LA MISSION & KNUCKLE CARTEL PRESENT
performance/ART 001
a non-Aristotelian Drama in Five Parts
something happens, and then something else.

BERLIN, GERMANY.  On February 1st and 2nd, the notorious-glorious record label La Mission & associated performance company Knuckle Cartel will present the first of five performances in their kunst/WORK series.  performance/ART 001: a non-Aristotelian Drama in Five Parts  is an experimental performance based on the satirical cinematic masterpiece “Network” and La Mission’s the “Time is Up Jazz” EP.  Something happens in this image-based, movement-heavy, nudity-promoting performance piece, and then (holy shit!) something else happens.  It is staged by Mandie O’Connell (La Mission/Knuckle Cartel/ex-Implied Violence/current swimming enthusiast) and features the intimidating talents of Luis-Manuel Garcia (La Mission/Max Planck Institute Fellow/ex-Parisian/current Berliner), Anja Struck (La Mission/ex-Berliner Ensemble/current cat owner), Magdalena Schnitzler (ex-Berliner Ensemble/Aalto Musiktheater Essen/current Bearded Lady), Laila Cola Weeks (La Mission/ex-Albuquerquean/current Naked Mennonite), and a couple of extremely beautiful people. 
The piece will be installed and performed in the charming, dungeon-like doom cellar at Tischendorf, a cozy coffee shop on Friedelstrasse.  The half-hour piece will be performed twice each evening.  Upon arrival, audience members will be assigned to the first or second performance of the night.  Because the coffee shop will remain open throughout the show, audience members can drink coffee & wine or dine on cake & cookies before and/or after witnessing the boobs & the carnage.
EVENT DETAILS: 
Tischendorf
Friedelstrasse 25 (U8 Schoeleinstrasse)
February 1 & 2
20.00 - 21.00 (ish)

SOPHISTICATED BOOTY CALL

LIVE CROWDFUNDING WITH INKUBATO & LA MISSION AT MERKEZI

The Cult of La Mission Squeezes Your Booty Until Money Falls Out!


BERLIN,GERMANY. La Mission is the new label project by the ever-popular and sometimes-respectable Beaner (Bar25, Thema, Workthemrecords, Little Helpers, La Mission).  Not simply a record label, La Mission is an ideologically-based art project that combines politics, performance, literature, and electronic dance music in one spicy enchilada. La Mission has been raising awareness and money for the project through both the US-based Indiegogo and the Berlin-based Inkubato crowdfunding platforms.  On October 24th, in a last-ditch effort to make their 3000 Euro fundraising goal, La Mission and Inkubato cordially invite you to attend a live crowdfunding hosted by Merkezi (which actually means “meeting point” or “center” in Turkish!).  The event will feature music by our beloved Beaner and fellow musical deadbeats, affordable and delicious Peruvian food prepared by a hot-blooded Peruvian (La Mission’s own LMGM), a raffle, a naughty photo booth, Jonestown-inspired shots, inner thigh massages and (drumroll) LIVE CROWDFUNDING!  Inkubato will be on hand to assist you with the loosening of your purse-strings.  Bring your cash, your account details, your paypal passwords, your first-born child (to throw in the Peruvian Stew), and a fistfull of condoms (to avoid making a second-born child).  ONE NIGHT ONLY EVENT SPECIAL: PURCHASE THE FIRST EP, MAGAZINE AND PERFORMANCE TICKET FOR ONLY 25 EUROS (A 33 EURO VALUE).
