New York Live Arts to Present Mariana Valencia's NOCTURNAL DISCIPLINES, 3/21-22

New York Live Arts presents the Studio Series showing of Mariana Valencia's Nocturnal Disciplines Friday, March 21 and Saturday, March 22 at 6:00pm in the third floor studios at New York Live Arts.

Nocturnal Disciplines, a work performed by Valencia along with Lauren Grace Bakst and Lydia Adler Okrent, considers spatial peripheries as central and the formality of "center" as strange. Looking at what three solo bodies can do through somnambulant roaming and verse, the cool flow of Nocturnal Disciplines weaves in and out of natural and man-made spaces. Relying on solo dance strategies, the work unpacks complex currents of existence united in humor and features original sound verse created by Valencia.

Studio Series work-in-process showings will take place in New York Live Arts' studios. Tickets are $5. There will be free in-process talks after each showing with an array of moderators. Tickets are available online at, by phone at 212-924-0077 and in person at the box office. Box office hours are Monday to Friday from 1 to 9pm, and Saturday and Sunday from 12 to 8pm. New York Live Arts is located at 219 West 19th Street between 7th and 8th Avenues. There will be no late seating.
