Jordan Deal – MOMMA i RODE THE BEAST!
September 20 @ 9:45 pm - 10:45 pm$25
MOMMA i RODE THE BEAST! is a hyper meta-physical dive into the indulgences of undercurrents that shapes our social and political landscapes, and stores itself in BODY. Through a series of horrific metamorphoses and ruptured happenings as a gothic queer existential necromantic wrestling inquisition with the BULL OF CHAOS, Jordan Deal questions the fugitivity to come thereafter~after it’s rode good.
Through the sun of fawnings /dust devil/waterspout–Jordan Deal continues their investigation of language, phsyci and emotional geography, forces, and its intersection with the colonial project–the infectious extraction of empire through the HEAD OF STATE and global projects. In ritual and self examination/dissection, Deal uses their body as a way to channel networks of ancestral/the undead voices in what harnesses in celebration, mythology, oral storytelling, secret passageways that erupt through floorboards [in tongue] through whispers, deities of (de)construction, and mournings to the undeaddead.
Jordan Deal, also known as ROSEKILLJUPITER, is a Philadelphia based multidisciplinary practitioner and alchemist. Their investigative practice uses performance, sound, and image as a conduit between unseen forces and the materializations of socio-political structures.They have been investigating the use of storytelling and gathering as the accumulation of urban mythbuilding, mapping, memory, and the use of vocal and movement based improvisation as a generative and investigative tool that harnesses and disperses CHAOS as a subversive material. Through the use of collected sound field recordings, video/film documenta, and real-time autobiographical myth fabrication, Deal explores dialectics, borders and territories; blackness as creative destruction; historical artifacts; the tropes of superhero/villain; undead knowledge; and counter-active channels of potentiality that exists against global colonialism and imperialism’s frameworks and mappings.
Deal has shown work with the Center for Performing Research, Brick Theater, Protocinema & Protodispatch, Fleisher-Ollman gallery, Vox Populi, Fleisher Art Memorial, Grizzly Grizzly, Bartram’s Gardens, No Tomorrow Underground, amongst others. This past Fall, Deal was selected as a Fall 2022 research fellow at Amant Foundation in Brooklyn, New York, where they continued their investigations of chaos force. They have been included in press such as the ARTNews, ArtBlog, Titled House Review Spring 2021 issue and Grizzly Grizzly: In Dialogue.
