May 13, 2018: Jennifer Miller, Saori Tsukada with Nikki Appino, and Cathy Weis
Sundays on Broadway and curator Cathy Weis present an evening of performances by Jennifer Miller, Saori Tsukada, and Cathy Weis.
Jennifer Miller, founder and director of the legendary Circus Amok, steps out of the ring and onto the dance floor. She will present a work-in-progress showing of a solo dance piece, her first in years, titled ACK ACK ACK!!! Glorious light moves through the house. Harvey is my neighbor. Pauline is my practice. A Man Needs a Maid: A Dance for D.
Theater artists Saori Tsukada and Nikki Appino will show an excerpt from a new work in development entitled ARCHIVIST. Guided by an elderly archivist, the audience discovers an underground library where files, books, artifacts, and junk are meticulously organized. A death in the family; the breakup of a trusted relationship; a burnt-down apartment; these intertwined episodes and significant life events are organized and categorized by this library’s strange, rigorous system. This will be the first reading of the work (possibly without words).
Sundays on Broadway is not only for the new and experimental, but also for the tried and true. Alongside the two newer works on the program, Cathy Weis will resurrect an earlier work, bringing new life to her signature live video setup.
All events begin at 6:00 pm. Doors open at 5:45 pm at WeisAcres, 537 Broadway, #3. There are no reservations. Seating is first come, first served. Keep in mind, this is a small space! Please arrive on time out of courtesy to the artists.
Beginning this season, we suggest a $10 contribution at the door.
