YAM COLLECTIVE CURATES SCREENINGS AND MULTIMEDIA
PERFORMANCES

The 38-member YAM Collective self-produces two-night event at
Freecandy in Brooklyn on May 29th and May 30th
( HYPERLINK "http://howdoyousayyaminafrican.com" http://
howdoyousayyaminafrican.com) a collective of 38 artists including
musicians, poets, actors, writers and visual artists from around the world will
debut their 53-minute video opera called “Good Stock on the Dimension
Floor: An Opera” at FREECANDY, 905 Atlantic Avenue, Brooklyn,
NY.

FOR BOTH NIGHTS
DOORS OPEN AT 7:30 PM EST
EVENT BEGINS PROMTLY AT 8:00 PM EST

A digital film in 34 parts, “Good Stock on The Dimension Floor” reimagines
the opera as a format for collective experimentation with contemporary
materials and media. Featuring an original musical score recorded in the
HOWDOYOUSAYYAMINAFRICAN? artist studio, the film moves
between multiple, highly crafted film locations in and around New York
City, Alaska, Washington D.C., California, Florida, Berlin and Paris. Many
of the film sets are comprised of sculptural installations and reflective
surfaces, often with footage of previous sets projected frontally. This
layering of sculptural form and imagery disrupts the possibility of a linear
narrative and pushes the film toward abstraction. Thursday and Friday’s
screenings will be followed by live multimedia performances and gallery
installations that propel the film’s abstract narrative into real space.
