A BODY on Governors Island and on Wall Street - PERFORMANCE BY EIKO

A BODY ON GOVERNORS ISLAND

Nolan Park at Governors Island

Tuesday, June 21 from 5:00–6:00 pm
Wednesday, June 22 from 2:00–3:00 pm
Wall St. at Broad St.

As part of the River to River Festival

A Body in Places is the omnibus title of Eiko’s solo project which involves going to a place of her choice, studying it and performing at the site without lighting, sound, and other theatrical conventions. Lower Manhattan is symbolic for a body relating to the larger capitalistic world. The body is fragile, unrecoverable, and irreplaceable – all of which is a stark contrast to the world of money and investment. Lower Manhattan also plays significant role in the history of immigration and immigrants – a group that Eiko belongs to and which connects her to the area.

During the performance, as Eiko takes hesitant steps across Nolan Park on Governors Island, she will make eye contact with intentional audiences and passersby, creating a potential of human architecture by striving to tear down the walls of alienation. Thorough this gaze with each individual, the performance also creates an interesting environment where audiences can also gaze and connect with fellow audience members.

While much has been written about Russia’s major cities, Olga Bell’s Krai is a composition dedicated to the rest of the map: the wilderness, the towns, the inhabitants and their stories. From the Cossack melodies of Krasnodar Krai in the West to the Chukchi drumming of Kamchatka Krai in the Russian Far East, Krai is a forty-minute journey across the Eurasian landmass.

Panopticon, a duet performed by Alexandra Albrecht and Rebecca Warner, takes inspiration from Michel Foucault’s Discipline and Punish, Panopticism. The dance fuses existential murmurings with spiraling movement structures filtered through a balletic sensibility. Diving further into her fascination with unison and mirroring, Panoption investigates how identity can only be asserted in relation to another, through choreographic reflections and multiplications, a kaleidoscopic arena of bodies is created everything is seen at all times.

An Epilogue For Otro Teatro: True Love By Luciana Achugar

AN EPILOGUE FOR OTRO TEATRO: TRUE LOVE

BY LUCIANA ACHUGAR

Sunday, June 26 from 3:00–6:00 pm

Front St. between Beekman St. and Peck Slip
Commissioned by LMCC

As part of the River to River Festival

An Epilogue for OTRO TEATRO: True Love is luciana achugar’s continuing search for another kind of theater: one that connects us to our central desire to move and to the primal and basic, but profound desire to dance to and with music. As in all of achugar’s works, this piece is concerned with the post-colonial world – searching for an undoing of current power structures from the inside out. It sets free a new “post-civilized” self that resists Western assumptions of beauty and order.

Founded by Leonard Bernstein in 1984, the annual New Year’s Eve Convert for Peace is a signature Cathedral event, gathering old friends and new for more than a quarter of a century.

Wrapping up this year’s performance, we celebrate the concert’s founder by performing chorales from Leonard Bernstein’s own Mass.
