Sundays on Broadway

Sundays on Broadway is a treasure-trove series curated by Cathy Weis at WeisAcres, her loft in SoHo in one of those buildings still occupied by artists, like some sort of nature preserve.” (Artforum)

Please see the calendar for upcoming events.

In 2003, Weis started The Salon Series, a performance-based series in which she presented work to small, invited audiences. Over the course of its 10-year run, she began to envision a program with a larger scope, a broader audience and a more diverse roster of artists.

Drawing inspiration from the history of her building at 537 Broadway, a veritable Bateau Lavoir of the 1970s and 80s, where Nam June Paik, Shigeko Kubota, Simone Forti, Yoshi Wada, Davidson Gigliotti, Elaine Summers, Jean Dupuy and George Maciunas lived and worked, Cathy Weis Projects launched Sundays on Broadway in May 2014. These one-night-only events bring both luminaries and newcomers of Downtown performance art face to face, sometimes quite literally, with the audience. From curators to stage managers, performers to videographers, Sundays on Broadway is a place for “some of the sharpest minds in downtown performance (to) toss ideas around” (New York Times), test out new material and discuss the inner dealings of their work and processes.

Since its inception, Sundays on Broadway has presented the work of dozens of choreographers, filmmakers, performers, musicians and visual artists in the unique setting of WeisAcres. Robert Greskovic of the Wall Street Journal writes that “…while the atmosphere evokes New York in the 1970s, the artistry on view feels up to the minute.”

“New York has other such opportunities for dance makers…but none that combine intimacy and formality, and being attuned to the present and the past, quite like Sundays on Broadway.” (New York Times)
