HERE's festival of work by emerging artists in a living room environment will happen July 28-August 30, 2006 . Paper Magazine encourages audiences to “ Crack a cool one, watch a sharp mix of new stuff, while feeling like you're still at home.” During HERE's renovations, The American Living Room will be presented at 3 Legged Dog's new space on Greenwich St.
Some shows that sound interesting are:
SHADOW PLAY – July 28 & 29 (Friday & Saturday)
Directed & choreographed by Ariane Anthony, with film by Jennifer Todd Reeves
Shadow Play reflects on the poignant interplay of perception and memory as dramatic events take place and characters from a silent movie dance in front of a film projection.
LOOKING FOR LIMBO – July 30 & 31 (Sunday & Monday)
Written by Melaena Cadiz, Joseph Keckler & Erin Markey
As the Vatican eliminates Limbo from Catholic Lore, the spirit of one giant unbaptized baby arrives at the gates of the nether-region, greeted by a colorful and confused crew of fleeing citizens. Together they embark on a soul-searching musical journey. Where do you go when you've been evicted from oblivion?
THE DOROTHY BUILDING - August 7 & 8 (Monday & Tuesday)
Directed & designed by Michael Scott-Price, written by Trav S.D.
This tale of a boarding house where the guests are all identical women named Dorothy is an absurdist-mask piece that delves into a dream-like realm that is both unsettling and lightly humorous.
LEE/GENDARY - August 12 (Saturday)
Written by Soomi Kim & Derek Nguyen
This multidisciplinary performance was inspired by the life of Bruce Lee. Soomi Kim felt compelled to inhabit this role after learning Lee was given a girl's name as a disguise from evil spirits. This unique look at Lee's drive to defy definition blends text, live music and a hybrid of martial arts, dance and acrobatics.
