4th U Artivists to Present BLOOD ON THE VEIL 11/28
4th U Artivists, a NYC-based non-profit founded to raise awareness and funding to help end violence against women and girls, presents Tandava Arts' BLOOD ON THE VEIL, written, choreographed and performed by Carol Tandava Henning and directed by Jeffrey Fiske.
The "Artivists" (artists + activists) have a long-standing involvement with playwright Eve Ensler's global movements V-Day and One Billion Rising whose mission is to end violence against women and girls around the world. Likewise, the mission of 4thU Artivists is to raise awareness and funds (to date, almost $100,000) to end violence against women and girls globally and locally through creative projects, presented under the auspices of the Fourth Universalist Societyin the City of New York. In addition to V-Day, proceeds of the 2016-17 performances go to two local organizations, Sanctuary for Families and Day One.
4th U Artivists Co-Producer Deborah Roth says: "Blood on the Veil is a luscious, feminine journey, a perfect match for a first co-presentation by the 4th U Artivists! We are thrilled to share Carol Tandava Henning's inspiring and interactive work! She literally gets audience bellydancing in the aisles!"
Blood on the Veil is a whirlwind monologue-in-movement that combines humorous and insightful autobiographical storytelling with the mesmerizing art of bellydance. Experience the divine in this riveting one-woman show! Sofia Davis of Fashion Ave News Magazine called it
"ENCHANTING! You will laugh, cry, and relate to the characters in the play. A MUST-SEE piece of theatre." The production stars Carol Tandava Henning, and features NYC's top dancers including master teacher Shoshana, Kaitlin Hines, Kris Amez, Petit JoJo, Paméla Miel, and Sharon Zaslaw, as well as the Tandava Arts student troupe Whimsical Hips. This performance will also feature live music by Melissa Murphey and Julian Broughton, of the Pittsburgh Middle Eastern Band Ishtar. A free bellydance class will be offered at the end of the performance.
This riveting performance is presented in the 4th Universalist Society's magnificent Gothic-style church on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. The production features costumes by Eman Zaki, lighting/sound design by Carol Tandava Henning and Alex Chmaj.
