BODY||MIND 2012: An Unofficial SXSW House Party

“The only thing you need to know to understand the deepest metaphysical secrets — is this: that for every outside there is an inside and for every inside there is an outside, and although they are different, they go together.” Alan Watts

100% UNAFFILIATED WITH SXSW

SXSW 2011 saw the wildly successful house party GARAGE _ PSYCH _ DANCE, the first joint effort of a dynamic booking trio consisting of Vivian Hua (Editor-in-Chief of Pacific Northwest-based publication REDEFINE magazine), Marjorie Owens (founder of the influential Dallas-based blog Clumsy N Shy) and Gina Altamura (an innovative curator of Portland nightclub Holocene).

In 2012, the trio is at it again, with BODY||MIND — a revelatory show that focuses again engages the body through dance rhythms and the mind through psyche-altering compositions.

BODY||MIND aims to create a concept-heavy discotheque that encourages equally radiant inner and outer worlds. The unofficial house party will find its strength in moments where sounds and visuals work to transform consciousness – where mental liberation through hypnotic meanderings and physical liberation through carnal joys will lead to the celebration of psychedelia in its purest, most immediate form. Showgoers will be immersed at times in a complete intermedia experience that will make BODY||MIND unlike any other SXSW-related event.

Last year’s show attracted the attention of hundreds of people. BODY||MIND promises to be an even more unique and rich artistic experience for all. Please join us.

Vee Hua 華婷婷 (they/them) is a writer, filmmaker, and organizer with semi-nomadic tendencies. Much of their work unifies their metaphysical interests with their belief that art can positively transform the self and society. They are the Editor-in-Chief of REDEFINE, Interim Managing Editor of South Seattle Emerald, and Co-Chair of the Seattle Arts Commission. They also previously served as the Executive Director of the interdisciplinary community hub, Northwest Film Forum, where they played a key role in making the space more welcoming and accessible for diverse audiences.

In 2017, Vee released the narrative short film, Searching Skies — which touches on Syrian refugee resettlement in the United States — and co-organized The Seventh Art Stand, a national film and civil rights discussion series against Islamophobia. 2022 sees the release of their next short film, Reckless Spirits, which is a metaphysical, multi-lingual POC buddy comedy for a bleak new era, in anticipation of a feature film.

Vee is passionate about cultural space, the environment, and finding ways to covertly and overtly disrupt oppressive structures. They also regularly share observational human stories through their storytelling newsletter, RAMBLIN’ WITH VEE!, and are pursuing a Master’s in Tribal Resource and Environmental Stewardship under the Native American Studies Department at the University of Minnesota.
