The Push Pops are a radical, transnational queer feminist art collective. Geared toward engendering ‘Embodied Feminism,’ Go! Push Pops employs the female body – that which is bound to a cross-cultural language of desire, signification and power – in tactical, ideological strategy. Go! Push Pops utilize gesture, exclamation and popular idiom to embody a new age discursive physicality interfacing with the ancient archetypal realm. Neo-Dada, Fluxist and Feminist, their performance work posits the body as a danger to the operation of reason and patriarchal economy of lack. A wild leap, an elusive slogan, a paroxysm of the flesh – The Push Pops reinscribe the body through participatory ritual, spontaneous performance and interactive multi-media installation.

A collaboration with performance artist and urban Shaman Irvin Morazan,Go! Push Pops Apocadoodlelypse took place in the streets of Bedstuy, Brooklyn on December 9th, 2011 outside Tompkins Projects. A post-apocalyptic vignette, Apocadoodlelypse addresses the dichotomous conditions of nature/culture, biology/technology and the metaphysical dimensions of raw animality. As part hyena, part mutated Doodle-bred play toys, the Push Pops achieve high states of spiritual alchemy through physical aggression as they maneuver in and out of Morazan’s Shamanistic spells.
Back by popular demand, Go! Push Pops we will perform a remix of our 'Bulimic Flow'Yoga Hip Hop Fusion feat. TLC'scrazysexycool as a looped mantra. Bulimic Flow is a series of asanas and rare dance moves (Lil B’s Cookin’ up references the preparation of crack cocaine) to heal the 3rd Chakra, the spiritual seat of personal power.
