Light Asylum DJ Set + Film Screening 08/26/16
Shannon Funchess of synth-goth duo Light Asylum has been described as "able to hypnotize and hold an audience in a state of bondage."

Her DJ set will be followed by a special outdoor screening of photgrapher Jean=Paul Goode's Grace Jones concert video "A One Man Show" 91982), which combines rock ribaldry with avant-garde theater, tearing asunder racial and gender stereotypes.

Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Company 11/11/16 To 11/13/16
' A Letter to my Nephew,' Bill T. Jones's latest work, brings together two impulses: the social/political and the deeply persona. This work is a street-scene or still from the evening news that superimposes violent street battles in the U.S. and desperate immigrants rushing towards freedom in Europe over the image of a hospital bed untethered from reality. Composer Nick Hallet, baritone Matthew Gamble, and DJ Tony Monkey accompany the accomplished dancers of the Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Company with a delirious mixture of pop music, lullabies, house music, and more. Video design by Janet Wong turns the stage into a simulated battleground; through the fog, Jones' words to his nephew come alive on stage.
 
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.
 
Meredith Monk + Anne Waldman 02/24/17 To 02/25/17
Two iconic woman known for their mesmerizing stage presences join forces for a singular evening of music, movement, and poetry. "One of contemporary music's great innovators" (The Classical Review), Meredith Monk is renowned for her extraordinary vocal technique, and her pioneering compositions have solidified her reputation as a startlingly original and intrepid artist. Anne Waldman is a prolific poet, playwright, activist, and author of more than 40 collections of poetry. An evening in three parts, Waldman begins with a performative reading of her poem, "Entanglement Variations," with visuals of paintings by Pat Steir and sound composition by Ambrose Bye. Meredith Monk will then perform several selections of work with members of her Vocal Ensemble. The evening culminates in a original collaborative duet between Monk and Waldman.
 
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.
 
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.
