Karen Krolak is a free range collaborator based in Boston, MA She is the co-founder/co-Artistic Director of Monkeyhouse, an award winning nonprofit that connects communities with choreography. Her ongoing project, the Dictionary of Negative Space (DoNS), is an interdisciplinary lament for the words that the English language lacks for grief, trauma, and repair. Much like grief itself, this unusual dictionary manifests in a variety of unexpected iterations. DoNS offers refuge for mourners grappling with complicated grief and was inspired by her experiences after a car crash killed her mother, father & brother.
Flux Thursday is a monthly community potluck and artist salon the second Thursday every month. It is Flux Factory’s longest running public program and we’re looking forward to hosting our first in-person Flux Thursday since the onset of the pandemic.
For the full schedule of Din Din, visit:
Din Din is a series of free, socially-distanced outdoor public events which use food and art to build community. Produced by Flux Factory and taking place in the neighboring Windmill Community Garden, works will range from visual art, dance, film, meals, activism, and music. Food is a basic survival necessity, but also begs the most abstract questions – Din Din artists use food to address wide-ranging issues. Some artists investigate both loss and preservation of family, tradition and personal identity. Others use food to address ecology and food justice. Many works employ aesthetics of camp and kitsch, but there will be no bad taste allowed in the meals served at every single event!
All events are held at 39-22 29th St, Long Island City.
