Academy Award-nominated filmmaker Sam Green (The Weather Underground) teams up with two local musical outfits, the Quavers and yMusic, to create a night of outdoor music and cinema. In recent years, Green has explored the intersection of film and performance through “live documentary,” in which Green narrates a film in person and cues images onto a screen while a band plays a live soundtrack. Performance on June 20th.

Using voice, touch, and imagination, choreographer luciana achugar shepherds 12 participants through Lower Manhattan on a walk like never before, bringing each audience member closer to a more sensual, connected, magical, deeper-than-the-marrow-of-the-bone, vibrational body. Elastic City intends to make its audience active participants in an ongoing poetic exchange with the places we live in and visit. Performance on July 2nd.

Initiated in 2012, THE SET UP is a multi-year project devised by choreographer Wally Cardona, made in unique cooperation with choreographer Jennifer Lacey and an international assembly of dance-artists viewed as “masters” of their form, operating in their own culturally informed aesthetic. Each “set up” begins with an invitation to one master artist to teach what they think is most important about the form to which they have devoted their lives. It continues with a response period, a final stage of reflection, and the making of “a dance.” Performances July 9th–11th.
