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.

The push pops will be in FIGMENTS ARTS FESTIVAL again!!!!

June 2011: WELCOME!!

Come reset your pleasure index at Imaginary Picnic, the Push Pops' second official performative installation on Governor?s Island. A Victorian themed outdoor tea time with liberal helpings of drama, magic and Dyonisian madness in a participatory emotional 'outward bound' nestled under a big friendly tree. Food is love and imagination is contagious suggests this cathartic spectacle in which Mistresses Minty, Pinky and Frosty guide visitors to indulge in invisible delicacies and let their personality armor melt away.
