Mission Statement

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.

Go! Push Pops "Push Pole" is contemporary revisioning of the European ‘May Pole’ Folk Ritual. Attributed with many meanings including a symbol of the world axis (axis mundi), reverence for sacred trees and early Modern phallic symbolism, Push Pole is a fluxus style ‘happening’ in collaboration with the artist Milena Shakuj┼Ź who has developed an experimental soundscape to accompany the performance.
 
Go! Push Pops Push Pole is part of ‘The Standard for Spring,’ a nomadic performance festival in the Chelsea Arts district (High Line) curated by Tara Raye Russo.
