Dark Circuits Orchestra is a large ensemble devoted to contemporary electronic instrument practices such as circuit bending, no-input mixers, laptops, car steering wheels, analogue synthesizers, controllerism and other obscure approaches to electronics. Hans Tammen creates and conducts long multi-movement pieces with large groups of players of electronic instruments for almost 20 years. Dark Circuits Orchestra’s 15th Anniversary concert (well, add the pandemic years to it) will take place in Hunter College’s gorgeous Black Box Theater, preceded by sound and visual installations, and a performance of Princess Jesus.

A trailblazing housing organizer and her diverse working class neighbors fight Robert Moses, the real estate industry and five mayors to create the first Community Land Trust in New York City – an oasis of permanent low-income housing in the heart of the rapidly gentrifying Lower East Side. This feature documentary was born 12 years ago when IMA alum Ryan Joseph and Hunter Urban Planning student Dave Powell met in an IMA class at Hunter College. The story is a gem of NYC history and an incredibly uplifting example of community planning and power. You can see more information on the film’s website:

Prof. Tami Gold’s film – 30th Anniversary since the release of
Politics, Sex and Identity

JUGGLING GENDER is one of the first documentaries to explore sexual and gender identity through the portrait of Jennifer Miller, a lesbian performer who lives her life with a full beard. Jennifer works as a performance artist, circus director and as the “bearded lady” in one of the only remaining sideshows in America. The film explores the fluidity of gender and raises important questions about the construction of sexual and gender identity.

JUGGLING GENDER premiered at the New York Film Festival/Video Showcase in 1992 and has been played in over 250 film festivals worldwide.
