3LD Art & Technology Center + 3-Legged Dog Media & Theater

(21)

We offer artists a unique experience with specialized equipment, flexible space and expert knowledge, as well as the desperately needed time to fully realize their visions. If New York City is to remain at the forefront of experimentation, then its artists must have the means to create cutting-edge work. Since opening in 2006, we have offered the latest materials and innovative tools to more than 900 artists. We have structured programs to ensure the aesthetic and financial success of our residents. We are providing a critical resource and development home for these artists, who carry on the traditions of risk-taking and boundary-pushing aesthetics, a tradition that reaches back in New York City’s history to the late 1800s. The production company, 3-Legged Dog Media and Theater Group, owns and operates 3LD Art & Technology Center.

Mission: 3-Legged Dog exists to produce new, original works in theater, performance, media and hybrid forms. Working out of a strong literary tradition, our mission is to explore the new narrative possibilities created by digital technology, and to provide an environment for our artists to create new tools and modes of expression so that they can excel across a range of disciplines.

Operating as usual

Hi Everyone we are still here working from home. Working on all the digital aspects of One Woman War and Not-Knowing. So there is a lot to do. It looks like we are again moving toward a very hard time for small businesses, non profits and independent artists and studios. We need to speak up for ourselves and not let disaster capitalism as usual take us out. Please talk to your institutional funders and ask them to work with us this time instead of looking at it as a Darwinian opportunity to "cut the wheat from the chaff." Silly corporatist, MBA nonsense like "viability" and "resiliance" criteria are completely inappropriate in a situation this profoundly devastating. We need to work together and share the pain this time and do what we can to keep the arts alive and preserve our culture because of its intangible value not just because it's an economic engine. The arts can be a leader in helping us come back to ourselves safely and sanely. 3LD is looking at interim immersive audience configuration modeling and detailed affordable remote collaboration tools and methods as we continue to do the most important thing we can do to survive this disaster: make new art.

Most of us have had all of our revenue generating projects cancelled. We all need to start preparing to help each other with the hard reboot that will be necessary.

03/31/2020

We are continuing work on our current artistic projects Not Knowing and One Woman War digitally and collaborating online.

We are very concerned that patterns we have seen in past disaster recovery efforts will repeat themselves and do more damage to small businesses and not for profits. Currently art organizations like ours who do not already receive City or State funding are being cut out of private foundation assistance and the only help being offered are Small Business Association loans. The last thing a small business, for profit or non profit, needs during or after a disaster is more debt.

Like most arts and culture groups and individual artists, all of our commissions and revenue generating projects have been indefinitely delayed or cancelled. But money is not what motivates our work so we will continue as we did on 9/11, during Hurricane Sandy and during the 08-14 recession to make art and to try to find opportunity, connection and collaboration in adversity.

Please stay home and stay safe and healthy and we'll see you online soon.

Carol Dysinger (right) Continues to be Recognized for Her Important Work Empowering Women and Girls Living in War Zones in Afghanistan
We congratulate her on her first Oscar win! Her work on the film was also recognized by the British Academy of Film and Television Arts where it won best British Short Film last Sunday.
3-Legged Dog sends all its best wishes to our collaborator as her film gains the international recognition it deserves. We're itching to return to our collaboration with Carol on the creation of an immersive performance and expanded cinema work called One Woman War based on Carol’s 16 years of work as a documentarian of life in war zones in Afghanistan.

We're thrilled to congratulate our collaborator, Carol Dysinger on her British Academy of Film And Television Arts, British Short Film Award!

Help us confront "the fierce urgency of now."

3-Legged Dog is a platform for exploration and critical questioning. We explore urgent human issues with our audiences and artists. Help us continue to develop an artistic practice that moves hearts and minds like James Scruggs' 3/Fifths: Supremacy Land.

To interrogate the history of American racism, the 10,000 square feet of the 3LD Art & Technology Center was turned into a dystopian theme park called Supremacy Land.

Art at 3-Legged Dog: Cutting Edge and Experimental but Award-winning, Moving and Relevant

Du Yun's Pulitzer Prize-winning "Angel's Bone" co-produced by 3-Legged Dog, HERE Arts Center and Beth Morrison Projects for the 2016 Prototype Festival premiered at the 3LD Arts & Technology Center in January of 2016. With its array of performance, technical and musical elements, the opera about two fallen angels served as a devastating allegory about human trafficking.

WHY WE DO WHAT WE DO AND WHY WE DO IT THIS WAY
We have always believed strongly that some things need to be done whether they make money or not and that artistic experimentation and technological innovation in the services of human expression, human communication and human rights are some of of those things.

We believe that with some help from our friends in the form of financial assistance, we can be an even more intense cauldron of creative production and a more robust resource for an even broader, more diverse creative community.

We’re off to the B3 Biennial! Tschüß!!

Esperpento by Victor Morales
This virtual space, inspired by the aesthetic vision of Spanish painter Francisco Goya, explores the dehumanization of a stranger. Morales questions why must the foreigner (who looks different) be shunned, despised and criminalized?
This work has been selected to be shown at the B3 Biennial this Oct. 16-20 in Frankfurt, Germany.

Dirtscraper by Peter Burr is one of the pieces selected to display on the immersive stage at the B3 Biennial in Frankfurt, Germany this October.

This large scale installation simulates an underground structure whose “smart architecture” is overseen by artificial intelligences- spatial and social designers that observe, learn, and make changes to the system. Unaware of the control exerted by these entities, residents of the structure move through and live in spaces that reflect varied economies and class hierarchies. Periodically, the system will interject one of 48 cinematic interludes that reveal different facets of life in this decaying arcology.

analmosh is a generative installation created by Matt Romein. He synthesized a dynamic audio-visual landscape in which images, sounds, colors, and graphics are repeatedly distorted and remixed under program control. See the immersive stage this Oct 16-20 at the B3 Biennial in Frankfurt Germany

From everyone at 3LD we wish you a happy holidays! The holidays are a time to spread love and cheer and to reflect on all that makes us grateful. This year we are grateful for so much. In this past year, we have had the privilege of creating works by many in house artists including Artistic Director Kevin Cunningham’s Not Knowing and Esperpento by Victor Morales, that is on its way to Sundance Film Festival in the New Year. In addition to these pieces we had the fortune of working with many of our peers, friends, and collaborators to give art the time that it needs to be produced with high value and artistic integrity. Thank you to the artists that have brought their visions and talents through our doors and thank you to the patrons that consistently support Avant Garde and experimental new works.

3LD Art + Technology Center is a cutting edge, technological facility, but it needs life breathed into it by the vitality of our 700+ collaborators a year. 3LD Media + Theatre Group is an Award winning, resilient, and adventurous team of artists that create phenomenal works but we need audiences and allies alike to make the work worth doing. In 2018, we were lucky to have an abundance of artists, audiences and last but never least, time. We look forward to all that is to come in the New Year and to continuing to spread love and cheer past the holidays. Best wishes for a happy holiday season and our sincere thanks for your loyalty and patronage throughout the year.

💜
