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.

 Call for participants for the Push Pop Collective’s “Aerobic Utopia” performance at Figment, Governor’s Island June 11, 12, and 13.  

    Part therapeutic shout-out, part anti-consumerist ritual, part feminist music video and all Utopia! Join members of the all-female Push Pop Collective as we create a collective discursive space; mobilizing against Western liberal ideology that posits femaleness as possessively individual and perpetually consumer.  Squat, kick, sing and pummel your way through mounds of day-old bagels and self-loathing, grooving to the original Buns of Steel Series.

Leotards, Day-Glo, LA Gear and barrel bangs highly encouraged. Consult with our Aerobitician on duty about your healthcare regimen or enjoy an ice cold glass of Crystal Light for less than a dollar! Come out and shout out – to Bagel Buns!
