New York Live Arts to Stage World Premiere from RoseAnne Spradlin, 10/8-11
New York Live Arts presents the world premiere of New York Dance and Performance "Bessie" Award-winning choreographer RoseAnne Spradlin's g-h-o-s-t c-r-o-w-n (working title) October 8 - 11 at 7:30pm in the New York Live Arts Theater. Named "one of the bravest choreographers of her generation" (Metro NEWYORK) known for crafting choreographic works with "impressive ferocity" (The New York Times ), Spradlin's newest work explores change and risk in a staged world that invites both calculated witnessing and emotional participation.
A highly physical work led by dancers Natalie Green and Rebecca Warner with devynn emory, Athena Malloy and Saúl Ulerio, g-h-o-s-t c-r-o-w-n (working title) features an original score for instruments and electronics by composer Jeffrey Young and projected visuals by artist Glen Fogel, who previously collaborated with Spradlin on the 2006 work survive cycle. Music for g-h-o-s-t c-r-o-w-n (working title) will be performed live by Young (violin, live electronics), Hannah Levinson (viola) and Lisa Dowling (bass). Evolved from within the creative process, Young's score was initially developed through improvisation during rehearsals with the dancers, and includes samples of the dancers' voices. Lighting by designer Stan Pressner and costumes by Walter Dundervill will round out the work.
Performances will take place in New York Live Arts' Theater. Come Early Conversations and Stay Late Discussions will also be featured with two shows (see complete schedule below). Tickets start at $30 with select $15 seats available. Tickets may be purchased online at newyorklivearts/season, by phone at 212-924-0077 and in person at the box office.
