TWO SHARED-EVENINGS CURATED BY ALEXIS CONVENTO
“They weren’t separate in their bodies, but also they are not separate in terms of struggles,”
-Angela Y. Davis, from “Freedom is a Constant Struggle”
Alexis Convento of the CURRENT SESSIONS brings together emerging women-identified performance artists and choreographers in two shared-evening bills, connecting each story to social identity, cultural memory, and embodied history.
PROGRAM #1: SUPER-CEREMONY
Saturday, June 3, 2017 at 9:30pm
Super-ceremony introduces the work of three artists developing their own diasporic reality as performative artifacts of survival and soft power. Artists are of Trinidadian, Puerto Rican, and Bosnian descent.
PROGRAM #2: DOUBLE AGENCY
Sunday June 4, 2017 at 6:00pm
Double Agency folds through itself into
A space inside a dance, outside the now
we’re stuck with.
La MaMa Experimental Theatre Club is dedicated to the artist and all aspects of the theatre. We enable artists explore their ideas and translate them into a theatrical language that can communicate to any person in any part of the world. La MaMa is the place where emerging artists learn from established artists and where artists from around the globe share work and ideas. Our East Village campus has grown to include four theatres, an art gallery, artist work and living space and an extensive Archive.
La MaMa Moves! is an annual three-week dance festival taking place in all three La MaMa venues. This unique and diverse program is devoted to presenting a full-range of contemporary dance forms and genres including post-modern, experimental, hip-hop and house forms, ethnic-fusion, burlesque, swing dance, aerial, and hula. This wide range of dance programming supports La MaMa's commitment to presenting diverse performance styles that challenge audience's perception of dance and reflects La MaMa’s longstanding mission to performance that transcends politics and unifies cultures. Curation by Nicky Paraiso.
