Christoper Williams: Narcissus (In-Process Showing) Work In Progress
New York Live Arts
New York Live Arts' Live Feed creative residency and commisioning program presents a studio showing of excerpts from Christoper Williams' in-process piece Narcissus. Set to Nikolai Tcherepnin's ballet score “Narcisse et Echo” composed in 1911 for the Ballets Russes, Narcissus is an original evening-length work reappropriating the eponymous ancient Greek myth on which it is based to re-imagine the original ballet through a contemporary queer lens.
The November in-process showing will include seven performers: Casey Hess, Russell Janzen, Gildas Lemmonier, Alexander Olivieri, Logan Pedon, Taylor Stanley, and Mac Twining.
35-40 minutes of Narcissus excerpts followed by a 15-20 minute audience Q&A.
