My super8 experimental film work from 2014, "Walking Dimensions" will be screened at the Ptilia event at Sedek (Beit Alliance), Jerusalem tomorrow, 31 August.
Ilan Barkani, Noam Ahdut, Maya Pennington, and Gidon Levy - members of the Sedek collective - will play in a new group performance, developed through a collaborative process, based on improvisation, and on voluntary game-like relations of guiding and being guided.
Sedek was founded in 2020 by artists from the fields of music, sound, dance and performance, based in jerusalem. The members of the collective run a shared space for experimental creative work, and maintain a supportive infrastructure for artists to engage with their audience, create and collaborate.

It took me a few years to "come out" about my drag persona as a performative practice, but as I started working with more and more professional musicians in Israel, I began to realize how important music and performance was for me. It was a combination of that, and not being able to find a suitable lip sync for my drag performances at bar shows, which led me to create my own music under alter ego Randy Miller. And now, after a year, I'm so excited to annouce that I'm diving head first in making my(his) first full length album: Randy Miller and the Earthly Crisis!
It will be a multi-genre, post-apocalyptic rock opera set in the future. I've opened a Patreon page to start raising some support and awareness around the project. And I'm looking forward to a near future of more live performance and work with musicians.
And in other good news: I just found out that Randy's first "hit single" and music video, Lone Wolf, as been accepted into the ClexaCon Film Festival in Nevada, USA! It will be making it's US premiere at the festival in April.
