Oh you lucky Santa Feans. We’re having a party. Technically, it’s a fundraiser for Retrieving Humanity but c’mon, this is one hell of a party. Circus performers, body painting, wall-to-wall live mixed video art, three DJs . . . Not to mention the video dome.
Santa Fe Complex has proven itself to be a multifaceted local venue for science, technology, and art and we feel it’s time to shake it up and celebrate this amazing space with some luscious beats. Festivities begin at 7:30pm with hands-on demonstrations of the technology involved in Retrieving Humanity and performances by various artists including Wise Fool New Mexico, The Berimbau Capoeira Group, WOW (With Our Words) spoken word group, and more. Later on the music starts with prettylittlepaw doing acousmatronica, J-Kind, back on the scene for one night only, mixing 90′s funk dub, and headliner DJ Dirt Girl laying down electro with eclectic mixes of Bollywood, J-pop and Funk Neurotico. The Complex will be alive with vivacious beats and wall-to-wall live video mixing. Not to mention the video dome. Admission for Off the Rails is $5 – $10 sliding scale. Food and drinks will be available for purchase.
The fundraiser goes to support Retrieving Humanity, a one of a kind interactive performance and installation that will bring live streaming video and audio from around the world to Santa Fe. This new concept of storytelling will allow the audience, by participation, to explore and express connections with their community and the world at large. This event will be held at Santa Fe Complex, 632 Agua Fria, Santa Fe, NM on July 30, 2010 at 7pm.
