Harbored
June 22, 2017 - June 25, 2017
Brookfield Place New York, New York

A new theatrical experience by En Garde Arts, co-commissioned by Arts Brookfield and Lower Manhattan Cultural Council, and presented as part of the River To River Festival, HARBORED is a site-specific work that weaves together stories from the last two centuries of immigration in the U.S.

Written and directed by Jimmy Maize with music by Heather Christian, choreography by Wendy Seyb, and vocals by Mama Arts Foundations’ Wednesday Sings Choir and the Downtown Voices Choir, a cast of 50+ performers tell the stories of twentieth-century author Willa Cather and her character Antonia, Lewis and Clark pursuing their dream of the American West, and everyday citizens who came through Ellis Island. Championing an immersive process of understanding and discovery, HARBORED redefines the ways in which we think about America’s past, present and future.

 

TELL YOUR STORY!

June 21-25, 12 – 2 PM

Talk with director Jimmy Maize about how you or your family came to the U.S.! Select conversations will be incorporated into the evening shows from June 22 – 25, creating an entirely new theatrical experience each night.

 

Join the cast for a break out session after the performance on Friday, June 23!

 

ABOUT EN GARDE ARTS

En Garde Arts‘ mission is to produce bold, unconventional, and innovative multimedia and interdisciplinary theater that marries content with community and inspires dialogue and debate about the salient issues of our time.

Founded by visionary producer Anne Hamburger, En Garde Arts is a New York-based 501(c)3 not-for-profit that builds upon a globally-recognized history of creative excellence alongside such luminaries as Reza Abdoh, Anne Bogart, María Irene Fornés, Charles L. Mee, Jr., Tina Landau, Jonathan Larson, Bill Rauch, Fiona Shaw, and Mac Wellman.

From 1985 until 1999, En Garde Arts was the first exclusively site-specific theatre in New York, re-envisioning the city as a stage with experiential events that interwove story with location in Central Park, Penn Yards, East River Park, the Chelsea Hotel, a Meatpacking District before gentrification, and beyond. Using original and adapted texts, productions tackled such timely subjects as the AIDS epidemic and the city’s growing economic disparities and were collectively honored with six OBIEs, two Drama Desk Awards, and an Outer Critics Circle Special Award — with The New York Times proclaiming the organization to be “an invigorating urban presence.”

 

ABOUT THE RIVER TO RIVER FESTIVAL

River To River seeks to provide world-class free summer entertainment and to inspire residents, workers and visitors in the neighborhoods south of Chambers Street and at Governors Island by connecting them to the best of the arts, the creative process, unique places and each other. For audiences of one to crowds of thousands, River To River provides an intense and rewarding way to experience and discover Lower Manhattan and Governors Island’s waterfronts, parks, plazas and history.

Much more than just a series of free events, River To River also serves as a platform for the arts sector in both nurturing new ideas and extending the life of existing work by inviting artists to create new site-specific works as well as site-responsive versions of premiere performances. The spectrum of work presented represents all stages of the creative process and audiences are encouraged to get closer to artists and their practices through open studios, artist talks and social events.

Waves of Tradition
Celebrating New York's Global Spirit!
May 1, 2017 - May 5, 2017
Brookfield Place New York, New York

Arts Brookfield and Live Sounds present Waves of Tradition, a curated week-long celebration of New York City and the waves of immigrant cultures that make up its rich history.

Each day will focus on a different part of the world: West Africa, Japan, Ireland, the Middle East and Latin America. Artists will tell their stories through music and dance each afternoon and evening—with a culminating Friday night concert—making connections with fellow New Yorkers through traditions from the ancient to the contemporary. The series is curated by Isabel Soffer of Live Sounds.

 

PERFORMANCE SCHEDULE:

MAY 1 | TRADITIONS OF AFRICA

African musician and poet, Salieu Suso joined by Ebrima Jassey will play traditional African instruments, the kora and balafon, throughout the day. The sound of a kora resembles that of a harp, though when played in the traditional style it bears a resemblance to flamenco and delta blues guitar. The balafon is an ancient wooden xylophone played in Africa since the 14th century, and has more than 20 keys that sit on calabash gourds that play melodic tunes.

 

MAY 2 | TRADITIONS OF IRELAND

Ensemble Jameson’s Revenge brings the luck of the Irish to day two. Led by four-time All-Ireland Champion, fiddler Denis McCarthy, joined by Andrew McCarrick on flute and whistles, John Walsh on guitar and vocals, Jameson’s Revenge is known for its hard driving jigs, reels and new compositions.

 

MAY 3 | TRADITIONS OF JAPAN

The premier Japanese classical dancer in the United States, Tokyo-born Sachiyo Ito and company perform a range of delicate and powerful traditional Japanese dances including Kabuki, Noh, Okinawan Court, and Jiuta-mai as well as contemporary choreographed works.

 

MAY 4 | TRADITIONS OF ARABIA

Zikrayat Ensemble perform music and dance from the Golden Age of Egyptian musical cinema (the 1940s to 1960s); traditional and classical compositions from the Arab world, as well as Raqs Sharki (Eastern Dance) often called bellydance and performed by both men and women for centuries at weddings, festivals and parties. Zikrayat (meaning “memories” in Arabic) is led by violinist, vocalist, composer and teacher Sami Abu Shumays and dancer Robin “Dameshe” Shumays.

 

MAY 5 | TRADITIONS OF LATIN AMERICA

The festival will come to a celebratory close with a special performance by Asthmatic Kitty artist Helado Negro (Roberto Carlos Lange) who blends the tropical lilt of Ecuador and the rich sounds and colors of the various Latin American cultures of his South Florida upbringing with the classical, folk-pop and electronica strains of his multifaceted artistic community. Helado Negro will perform “Ensemble Interpretations” during lunchtime and a version of “Brainfinger Composition” in the evening at 7:30pm, in which he controls musical parameters using yarn tethered to live musicians. The ensemble includes Angela Morris, Nathaniel Morgan, Jason Nazary, Eliza Bagg and Oliver Hill.

Neon Dreams Concert
March 30, 2017
First Canadian Place, Toronto

It seems appropriate that the single that launched Neon Dreams on a tour across Canada is called “Marching Bands,” because they’re clearly on the move – in more ways than one. A quartet of Nova Scotians who met at a Halifax high school, Neon Dreams takes the typical DJ format of an electronic dance music act and adds in live instruments to bring an explosive energy to on-stage performances and studio recordings.

 

 

 

A highly collaborative crew, the four members work together on the production and writing side of music, and during live performances each take on key roles: Frank Kadillac is lead vocalist; Corey LeRue is DJ and backing vocals; Matt Gats becomes lead guitarist; and Adrian Morris holds down the drums and live sampling.

Neon Dreams’ last two years of whirlwind success has included a single – “The Last of Us” – that made the top ten on iTunes’ electronic chart, songs featured on Keeping up With the Kardashians and Silicon Valley, and one of three slots in the 2016 Allan Slaight JUNO Master Class, Canada’s premiere artist development program.

“Marching Bands”, a collaboration with Toronto-bred rapper Kardinal Offishall, is a sign of the band’s potential to have major cross-over appeal. LeRue recently explained why that is: “Instead of the raging, hard-hitting electronic sound, or the melodic over-the-top big choruses, it’s a laid-back summer song that share a bit of our love for music and life.”

Stephen Petronio Company

Brookfield Place New York, New York

Arts Brookfield presents Stephen Petronio Company on the Winter Garden stage at Brookfield Place. The groundbreaking dance company’s mid-day presentation features “Locomotor/Non Locomotor,” choreographed by Stephen Petronio with costumes by Narciso Rodriguez and music by Clams Casino, which was first presented in April 2015 at the Joyce Theater. The evening performance includes Merce Cunningham’s “RainForest,” with decor by Andy Warhol and musical score by David Tudor, from the choreographer’s project entitled BLOODLINES, which traces Petronio’s choreographic lineage through various postmodern icons.

RainForest (1968)*

About Stephen Petronio Company
With over thirty years of experience creating work with his own company, Stephen Petronio has pushed his distinctly virtuosic movement language to new realms of experimentation. His unique language speaks to the intuitive possibilities of the body within the shifting cultural moment, and he continues to create a haven for dancers with a keen interest in history and an appetite for the unknown. The creation of BLOODLINES, a project that honors the lineage of American postmodern dance masters, is a natural expansion of this impulse. Petronio is now focused on a dialogue that speaks to the larger context of his foundations.
