HEaRD in WNY: Shows for July 25 - 31



This week's featured event is Buffalo Infringement Festival, which runs from July 25 - Aug. 4. The Buffalo Infringement Festival is a non-profit-driven, non-hierarchical grassroots endeavor bringing together a broad range of eclectic, independent, experimental, and controversial art of all forms. Visual, performing, and media arts are all welcome here. Taking place in multiple venues in and around Buffalo’s Allentown District, the festival is an annual eleven-day event running from the last weekend of July through the first weekend of August. The Infringement Festival is an interdisciplinary festival open to all critical artists. Celebrating freedom of expression and designed as a real arts democracy, this festival is a critical response to the oppressive neo-liberal worldview and all its billboard trucks, televisions, flyers, advertisements, jingles, made-for-TV wars; and the de-politicization of people through this diversionary Spectacle. The Infringement Festival welcomes a variety of performances and cultural resistance: theatre groups, performers, street activism, political theatre, musicians, radical performance, visual artists, films, marginalized arts, spoken-word, puppet shows, disadvantaged groups, and anyone wishing to artistically infringe on the monoculture that creeps into every corner of our lives. The Infringement Festival aims to emphasize both critical practice in the arts, and artistic practice in activism. It also aims to provide a positive environment that encourages and nurtures critical art.​ In short, BIF is whatever YOU want to make it - If You Can Do It, Infringe It!
