Satellite Collective, a collaborative arts incubator focused on creating cutting edge works of interdisciplinary performance, will present two evenings of new work, on May 16 at 17 at 8 pm at Brooklyn Academy of Music's BAM Fisher. Drawing together choreographers, composers, visual artists, writers, filmmakers, designers, and photographers, Satellite Collective offers an innovative vision of how art forms align. The performances will feature five new works by the company's 27 artists, and will include two world premiere modern dance works, a short-motion film, a spoken word piece and a solo cello composition.
The performances will feature the premiere of two modern dance works: Rituals, choreographed by Manuel Vignoulle and Emergence, choreographed by Esmé Boyce. Both works have original music composed and performed by the Satellite Ensemble under the direction of Nick Jaina, with visual design by Lora Robertson and Kevin Draper. The evening also includes a short stop-motion film by Robertson with a score by Ellis Ludwig-Leone; a performance work by Nathan Langston with photography by Casey Kelbaugh; and a solo cello composition by Bill Ryan.
