Sundays on Broadway co-curators Owen Prum and Weis present an evening of video and performances by Jon Kinzel, K.J. Holmes, Ella Dawn W-S, and video by CW.

Jon Kinzel will present Manhattan Terminus (working title), a work in progress performed by Kinzel, Fabio Tavares and special guest Anne Iobst, co-founder of DANCENOISE and longtime friend of Sundays on Broadway. About the work, Kinzel writes: “The making of duet material with Tavares happened in tandem with the production of numerous artworks that could be seen as an inexhaustible sequence with no arrival point, without finality, that reflect the transitional nature of being an aging dancer whose body is an instrument in flux. And to question the value of un-reproducibility and a way for fiction to meet an experimental memoir of sorts.”

Due to unforeseen events, Julie Mayo will not be able to join us this season. Stepping up to the plate in her stead, K.J. Holmes will be performing a solo improvisation inspired by the writings of Steve Paxton.

Ella Dawn W-S’s writes "Trace effort (working title) is a duet, delineating the relationship between the dancers through proximal configurations of vertical opposition. Testing the sturdiness, we keep pressing and pressing to see what it can hold. Sometimes it looks like nothing’s happening, because nothing's happening. I'm draped over a cinder block, you’re lying underneath a mirror with the yellow vinyl unfurling outward."

CW will show an excerpt of archival footage she shot back in the day.
