Dance Performance | The Disco Project Remix: Dance Reflecting on Lives Lost to AIDS


A new performance by award-winning choreographer, artist, and performer Neil Greenberg. Adapted from The Disco Project (1995), Greenberg’s recollection of lives lost to AIDS and an acceptance of his own HIV+ status, this updated remix stages elements of its original choreography in a response to the site’s current exhibition, Songs for a Memorial by Steven Evans.  Both works open up shared experiences of liberation, trauma, and survival through a transvisual inquiry into the power of LGBTQIA vocal anthems.  The audience hears instantly recognizable earworms of RuPaul, Sylvester, and Jimmy Somerville, while witnessing post-modern dance that subverts our expectations of their embodiment. These movements are executed within Evans’ sculptural installation of classic song titles such as “It’s Raining Men” and “You Make Me Feel (Mighty Real),” rendered in glowing neon. Start times: 4pm, 5pm

Play | The Winter's Tale: Rarely Staged Shakespeare Drama


The Drilling Company returns with this unique offering or ourdoor Shakespeare. The Winter's Tale is a rarely-produced curiosity of the Shakespearean canon. Director Hamilton Clancy is re-envisioning the story of kings who are cruel without cause into a modern-ish tale of a highly dysfunctional dynasty in Manhattan and upstate New York. Clancy has couched the play in the modern world to reflect the tensions of our time. Jealous King Leontes, the play's central character, cannot accept truth that is self-evident and issues of probity and deception dominate the play, as in America today. Clancy asks, "What proof do you need to know something is a lie? And how easily will we accept a lie if it suits our expectations?" He asserts that the January 6 Committee's hearings made this aspect of the play impossible to ignore.
