Wildcat! Assembly
Thursday - Saturday,
June 11 - 13 at 8 pm
Sunday, June 14 at 3 pm

Featuring two programs:
I DO MIND DYING: danse précarité (Thursday and Saturday)
3 Meaningful Meditations (Friday and Sunday)

Wildcat!, an interdisciplinary performance collective formed in 2013 by choreographer/performers Jeremy Toussaint-Baptiste, Eleni Zaharopoulos and André M. Zachery, will hold an "assembly" with two programs featured: I DO MIND DYING: danse précarité and 3 Meaningful Meditations. These two evening-length performances address social justice issues of racism, gender inequality, and economic oppression through the lens of three artists from unique artistic mediums: dance, physical performance, and sound.
Part of JACK's season-long series Forward Ferguson.


"...I said, no - don't mind working, but Lord, I do mind dying."
---Joe L. Carter

I DO MIND DYING: Danse Précarité (Thursday and Saturday)  defined internally as an experimental labor ballet  is Wildcat!'s response to precarity as a constant condition for the majority of people in society. The name of the performance  I Do Mind Dying  is the title of a blues ballad by Detroit musician, Joe L. Carter. It is a working class anthem about the toils of trying to "make it".

In 3 Meaningful Meditations (Friday and Sunday), each of the three members of Wildcat! presents a solo-work reflecting on and confronting his and her own personal struggle against systems of oppression. Drawing from radical theorist and educator Paolo Freire's activist primer, Pedagogy of the Oppressed, the piece investigates intersections and relationships between unseen, or unacknowledged labor/work and The Other in contemporary Western culture.


Wildcat! was formed in September 2013 by interdisciplinary artists Jeremy Toussaint-Baptiste, Eleni Zaharopoulos, and André M. Zachery. The collective formed out of a mutual interest in exploring how people organize and support each other in an unstable and imbalanced world. Thus far, the scope of their collaboration has included performances, community gatherings, youth workshops, silent boycotts, and one manual on tactical self-enfranchisement.  The collective's name is taken from the "wildcat strikes" that occurred in the auto plants of Detroit throughout the 1960's and 70's.  As a collective composed of two Black (American) males and a (Greek) American-born woman, Wildcat! fully acknowledges itself as group defying conventional forms of solidarity and idealism. The collective's motto, Solidarity in Precarity, is the basis of examining the creative and unique ways people are collectively working to survive and operate in their financial uncertainty while being conscious of how race, gender, class, economic conditions and geographic location factor into this dynamic. www.solidarityinprecarity.com
