Alive with Arts at Lang College Senior Dance and Theater Productions this Week
Lang College arts majors concentrating in theater and dance will be on stage this week in the senior dance and theatre productions, which are a collaborative-performance venue where students can hone their craft and work together for the last time.
Folding Into Everything, a world premiere collaborative, evening-length performance incorporating the distinct voices of seven emerging New York choreographers will take place on Thursday, May 13, at 8:00 p.m., and Saturday, May 15, at 3:00 p.m., and admission is $5. The evening is a reimagining of the traditional concert showcase (in which works are presented in succession with little to no transition) and creates a performance space where otherwise discrete dance pieces fold, into each other, generating a visual/narrative dialogue among choreographers and their work.
Tennessee Williams’ Camino Real, directed by Cecilia Rubino will be performed on Wednesday, May 13, 5:00 p.m., and Friday, May 15, at 7:00 p.m., and admission is free. The play, written in 1953, is Tennessee Williams’ response to the House Un-American Activities Committee’s investigation and silencing of artists. In the play, Williams imagines a fevered landscape that is inhabited by such literary figures as Quixote, Casanova, Camille, and Byron. Kilroy, the all-American hero, steps into this world where apathy and corruption have crushed dreams, and there seems to be no way out.
Performances will take place in Tishman Auditorium, 66 West 12th Street.
