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 Shakujō 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.
