In Antigone Sr. (L), the fifth installment of Harrell’s ongoing series Twenty Looks or Paris is Burning at The Judson Church (ICA audiences may remember the previous installment (M)imosa), the pioneering choreographer questions how different vogueing and the theater of antiquity might be, reimagining notions of gender, class, sexuality, and citizenship

Distant 04/02/16
An example of slow cinema, Distant is made up of thirteen parts, each a single long take without any dialogue and relying solely on image, sound, and action. Dramatic, realistic, and mysterious, these fragments tell a story of distance, focusing on the subtle moments when people are suddenly confronted with modernity and gradually become lost in transition. The film attempts to describe the alienation, abandonment, and eternal loneliness of today's human condition. Presented by Crows & Sparrows. Director Zhengfan Yang will be in attendance.
 
a canary torsi: Court/Garden 04/08/16 To 04/09/16
A spectacle in three acts, choreographer Yanira Castro’s Court/Garden takes as its inspiration the imperial ballets of Louis XIV’s court, the spectatorship of the proscenium stage, and the presentation of video feeds. Each act is staged within a specific audience/performer relationship, shifting the experience to ask, Who is the court? Who will be king for a day? Performed by Castro’s group a canary torsi, Court/Garden evokes cultural, social, and political frames of experience with an operatic, spectacle-driven vocabulary reflecting how power functions in contemporary theatrical images from the fashion runway to the creation of cultural icons.
