February 6 - 7, 2016
8pm at Triskelion Arts’ Muriel Schulman Theater
106 Calyer Street, Brooklyn, NY 11222 – Enter on Banker Street
Brooklyn, NY – Triskelion Arts is pleased to present a shared program of new work by Anne Zuerner and Kathy Wasik this February in the Muriel Schulman Theater.
Inspired by a cemetery on the Brooklyn/Queens border, Anne Zuerner’s Archaea brings together abstract, spiritual and scientific ideas surrounding life and death. Drawing connections between formal explorations of circles, physical embodiments of history, lessons learned from the way the natural world deals with death and the mysterious aspects of our universe, Archaea zooms in to many unanswered questions about life and death. This work is a re-envisioning of a large-scale, site-based work that will premiere at the Evergreens Cemetery in Spring 2016.
Kathy Wasik’s Granny Knot focuses on transitions. It attempts to turn what would normally be the connective tissue of a work into the meat and bones of the piece. The work challenges performer and viewer alike to ask how we distinguish between a landmark and a transition, and what happens when we invert our value systems. Performed by Erin Cairns and Kathy Wasik.

“wildly beautiful….” - Gia Kourlas, The New York Times
“Moving closer to a huddle, they lifted their arms and legs and melted back down again. They shoved their fluorescent beams to the center of the stage like a campfire. As they worked their way upright, they could have been mermaids trying to balance on fins, only to have invisible gusts of wind take them down.” - Gia Kourlas, The New York Times
