NEW YORK LIVE ARTS to Present Molly Poerstel's Studio Series, 4/3-4
New York Live Arts continues the 2015 Studio Series showings with Molly Poerstel on Friday, April 3 and Saturday, April 4 at 6:00pm in the Third Floor Studios.
For Studio Series, Poerstel will present an in progress showing of her latest work. Attracted to blank spaces and interested in building dances with a force and power that frightens, Poerstel's work looks to the matriarch, a figure who evolves and breeds with innate animal intelligence. Taking influence from her background in somatic practices, her technically precise work challenges performers with polyrhythmic choreography set within strict structures. Drawn to exposing the finite point of transformation, Poerstel's work presents the female body distilled to its essential, animalistic self.
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.
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. Tickets are available online at newyorklivearts.org/tickets, 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 10am to 9pm. New York Live Arts is located at 219 West 19th Street between 7th and 8th Avenues. There will be no late seating.
