Alessandro Sciarroni 02/17/17 To 02/18/17
Lauded Italian choreographer and theater director, Alessandro Sciarroni is known for his stagings that straddle dance, performance art, and ritual anthropology. In FOLK-S, he refines the Schuhplatter, a Bavarian folk dance, meaning “shoe batter,” is refined to it most essential form invoking a sense of playful experimentation and ritualized trance. Starting from an unceasing repeated sequence, FOLK-S invites us to take part in an extreme, perception-based experience centering on the multiple variations that a form can take and progressing to the point of exhaustion. Here the folk material finds its clearest revelation by being geographically and culturally decontextualized. Alessandro Sciarroni is an Italian performing artist with an extensive background in visual art and theater. His works are featured in dance and theater festivals, museums, and unconventional spaces and have been performed in over 20 different countries.

Maria Hassabi: Staged 03/17/17 To 03/18/17
Maria Hassabi has honed a distinct practice involving the relation of the body to the still image and the sculptural object. Her mesmerizing work takes its time and asks it views to do the same, as it interrogates the separation between the spectacular and the mundane, between subject and object, between performer and audience. In Hassabi's new theater work, Staged, four of New York's most captivating dancers, Simon Courchel, Hristoula Harakas, Molly Lieber, and Oisin Monaghan perform individual solos, collectively forming an intricate live sculpture which that is constantly shape-shifting, abstracting the human form and its capacities. No Late Seating

Beth Gill 05/12/17 To 05/13/17
Beth Gill's minimalist works explore the tension between formalist structures and psychological themes, where layers of meaning unfold over a prolonged sense of time, while maintaining an extremely vivid sense of the simultaneous visual and visceral experiences of the viewer. The new work reflects on art historic value and aesthetics, and presents in its stead a dense, tangled, corporeal dance in which bodies are both disparately and desperately expressive.
