MAHWAH, N.J. — The highly acclaimed New Red Order (NRO) will perform their one-night only performance, “Mergers,” in the Adler Theater at the Berrie Center on Wednesday, November 16 at 6:30 p.m. The performance is being presented in tandem with the NRO exhibition “Give it Back: Stage Theory” in the Kresge & Pascal Galleries from November 2 to December 9.

“Mergers” interweaves performance works and screenings of short films from NRO and Kite, an Ogála Lakḣóta artist, composer, and academic, supported by accomplices Ashley Byler and Jeremy Pheiffer. The event relates to NRO and Kite’s shared interest in desires for indigeneity and the persistence and permeation of these desires into myths, dreams, and foundations of so-called Americans.

NRO is a public secret society that collaborates with networks of self-described “informants” and “accomplices” to investigate individual and collective desires for indigeneity. Since 2014, the group has used video, sound, sculpture, installation, and performance to shift potential obstructions to Indigenous growth and cultivate grounds for Indigenous futures.

The Berrie Center for the Arts is a community resource generously funded by the New Jersey State Council on the Arts. Events are open to the public with easy access and free parking. The event is free and does not require a ticket for admission, but for exact event information, please visit ramapo.edu/berriecenter.
