For the first Un-Charting program gathering, New Red Order x Kite will create and present a new multimedia performance. Continuing their collaborative process, they focus on the intertwining of particular desires that play out from sometimes opposite vantage points - for example, desires to be native, to belong, or to return.

New Red Order x Kite present: ReMergersJoin New Red Order (NRO), a public secret society, and Kite, an Oglála Lakȟóta artist, academic, and composer, for ReMergers, an evening of multimedia performance lectures that interweave screenings of short films. The event converges around NRO and Kite’s shared inquiry into desires for indigeneity, and the persistence and permeation of these desires in myths, dreams, and foundations of the so-called Americas.
Kite will present selections from Makȟóčheowápi Akézaptaŋ (Fifteen Maps).

Understanding extraterrestrials as a product of American mythology requires seeing the multiplicity of fears in the American consciousness. Just like the hydra of conspiracy that shapes America as a nation, the intersections between extraterrestrials and the American nation-state fracture into even more intricate pieces of an unsolvable puzzle. Multimedia artist and scholar Kite performs an experimental lecture, “What‘s on the Earth is in the Stars, and What’s in the Stars is on the Earth,” which probes the real conspiracies through multiple dimensions: Lakota epistemologies and the American paranormal.

The performance will be followed by a discussion and Q&A with Kite.
