Opening Reception | Atlas Unlimited: Acts VII-X: Banalities and Atrocities


This is the final chapter in a two year project for the artists. There will be more than 64 hours of performance over the duration of the exhibition. Atlas Unlimited: Acts VII-X renders the banalities and atrocities of Syrian sculptor Zakaria Almoutlak's life through sculpture and vocal performance. Artist Karthik Pandian and choreographer Andros Zins-Browne have been working with Almoutlak since 2017, incorporating fragments of his story into the previous acts of Atlas Unlimited. Refused entry to the U.S. due to the 2017 travel ban, Almoutlak's presence will be conjured by the voices of Ganavya Doraiswamy and Aliana de la Guardia, drawing on karnatik, operatic, and pop vocal traditions.

Performance | Performance for One: Slippery Memory


Performance for One is a one-on-one performance event written and directed by Edward Einhorn, presented in 10-minute slots at venues across Manhattan. The performance is about memory, but even more so, it is about relationship between performer, audience member, and author. What is the responsibility of the audience member, and how is it felt differently when there is only one audience member? Who is the story teller, the author or the performer? What happens to a memory that two people share after one of those people is gone? Presented by Untitled Theater Company.

Abigail Levine's Restagings No. 3: Fall (C.A.) is a 10 1/2 hour performance and collective ritual for a community of performers, writers, and their witnesses.

Play | To Life: Meet the Rosens


The Rosen family, battered and blessed, celebrates Jeffrey’s life as their hearts lie gasping on the floor. Backs are turned and accusations hurled as the Rosens come together and fall apart, bound by heartbreak and humor. Nobody escapes a good kick in the tuchas as they expose their foibles, confront their fears, and cling to their fragile connection amidst the chaos. The story is both elegy and eulogy to the death of a family and reminds us that we’re not alone. Written by Eve Lederman.
