December 4, 2022: Scott Heron + Daniel Lepkoff & Sakura Shimada + Cathy Weis
Sundays on Broadway presents an evening of performances by Scott Heron, Daniel Lepkoff & Sakura Shimada and Cathy Weis.
Scott Heron will present his current work Study for a Clown Show. He writes, "Everything supports me even if I don't know how or why. Flummox you into innocence. Try doing everything just a little longer."
Daniel Lepkoff and Sakura Shimada will present Body of Work: Closer to Home. They write, "Since COVID, we stopped traveling and teaching. We have been dancing in our living room, in our house, in a forest, at the end of Old County Rd. in West Halifax, Vermont. Meeting on Zoom with friends from Detroit, Northampton, and Argentina, twice a week for two years. Also, we drive into town and have a dance studio for 2 hours every Wednesday and Friday. Our work has not changed, always playing, learning, and researching the presence of the imagination in the body, the body's reflexes, the ongoing spontaneous dialogue with the environment. What is new is that it has all moved closer to home."
In 2014, Julie Martin was the first artist to present work, Nine Evenings, as part of Sundays on Broadway. Nine years later, hundreds of artists have presented their work at WeisAcres. Cathy Weis contributes her own work to this vibrant downtown scene with her newest creation, Props from Poughkeepsie: Hunger and Restraint. Performers: Emily Climer, David Guzman, Martita Abril. Props by Jim Fawcett.
