How amazing was the weather this past weekend? Although we're all having a rollercoaster of feelings and experiences, all around us nature is bursting into life and we can't help but imagine that we are moving ever closer to the other side of this.
Please enjoy our fourth weekly Gift to you- a mix of film, dance, and hands-on activities.
During the current quarantine period in New York, many of our 2020 SU-CASA artists are exploring new ways of offering creative aging programming at a distance. Artists are teaching online and via telephone, and connecting with older adult participants while staying at home.
For the first time ever, we're thrilled to begin sharing videos created by our SU-CASA artists to offer a glimpse into their programs and for all of us to turn to as they teach us about graffiti art, flamenco guitar, Japanese dance, and pairing poetry and imagery.
Workspace 2019-2020 artist Naomi Safran-Hon explores personal and collective histories and the fragility of human experience with a focus on the internal energy of the material, continuously pushing the viewer to look beyond the surface.
Naomi's solo exhibition All My Lovers is currently on view at Slag Gallery online. In this exhibition, Naomi continues her interrogation of the concept of home as both physical site and familiar locus for the conflict between myth and truth.
For six days in a row, enjoy live streaming of Netta Yerushalmy's Paramodernities installment with a 20-minute conversation/ Q&A between Netta and select guests to follow. This will all be LIVE and FREE and take place every day at 3pm.
Paramodernities is a six-part encyclopedia series deconstructing historic dance works by Alvin Ailey, George Balanchine, Merce Cunningham, Bob Fosse, Martha Graham, and Vaslav Nijinsky.
LMCC featured Paramodernities in its River To River Festival, and was deeply involved in supporting the development of this series when Netta was a previous LMCC Extended Life artist-in-residence - congratulations Netta!
“Take six classic dances. Chop them up. Then tear open the modern canon, with equal parts love and fury.” – Gia Kourlas, The New York Times
