Chapter 1 kicked off on Saturday, May 14, 2016 at 3:00pm in the Bed-Stuy garden of RAKIA! Headquarters. Working in tandem with photographer-performer Ethan Baldwin, RAKIA! unleashed a years worth of movement, chopped & screwed in real-time. Participants tossed back gin fizzes and hit the play button for this once in a lifetime experience! We are forever grateful to everyone who came out and made the piece amazing!

On Sunday, June 19, 2016, we gathered on the roof of Wulff Haus, in the shadow of (but never overshadowed by) the Empire State building to make a piece together. Many thanks to Sarah Donnelly, Sean Billy Kizy, Ethan Baldwin & the best audience-collaborators in the world for making Chapter 2: WE memorable.

We gathered in secret at The Court Hotel on Saturday, July 23, 2016, for the final chapter of Or, An Oral History, a hot-pink, champagne-flavored swan song to a magical summer. Thanks to everyone who came out to make Chapter 3: I Am Tired And Possibly Hungover And Want To Go Home special. Sean, Sarah & I appreciate your support!
