New York Lives Arts to Present Saul Ulerio's Studio Seres Showings, 4/4-5
New York Live Arts presents the Studio Series showing of Saúl Ulerio's transcendental preparatory exercise no. 6 "while in a vigil through pastoral antiquity, so the forest trembles" Friday, April 4 and Saturday, April 5 at 6:00pm in the third floor studios at New York Live Arts.
A piece about rhythm, harmony and destruction, transcendental preparatory exercise no. 6 "while in a vigil through pastoral antiquity, so the forest trembles" represents a return to the history of theater, revisiting its dramaturgical evolution from Greek Drama to Wagner's operas. For the Studio Series showing, Ulerio will present the work in its early stages of the creative process, opening it up to commentary. A recollection of material and ideals which Ulerio has been exploring over the course of the past two years, the movement vocabulary draws from Dominican Folklore as well as rhythmical clashes and similarities within the Cunningham Technique's approach to movement.
Studio Series is supported, in part, by the National Endowment for the Arts, the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs and the Foundation for Contemporary Arts.
