Performed by White Road Dance Media
white road Dance Media: Evergreen
May 22, 2013 - May 25, 2013
Presented through the Abrons Access Program
Evergreen is a new full-length live dance work from Marisa Gruneberg and white road Dance Media, marking wrDM's 10th year creating and performing in New York City.
Evergreen is a world pulled taut by symmetrical forms and fueled by overwhelming movements, quickfire decisions, and interpersonal momentums. Additionally inspired by simulated environments, cycles of renewal and the concept of extreme dramatics in very small spaces, the performers challenge one another to fully inhabit a purlieu that is both calculated and undone, fragile yet enduring.
Performed by Sammy Donahue, Sydnie Liggett, Miranda Lyon, Emily Maurer, Hanna Olvera, Liz Riga, Jenny Stulberg, and Sarah Zitnay. Original score by Justin Sherburn, with costumes by Joseph Blaha.
Video preview of the work is here.
Evergreen was created in the Fall and Winter of 2012/13 under the auspices of the Triskelion Arts Space Subsidy Program, made possible with support from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. The piece was presented by Triskelion Arts as part of its Triskelion Arts Presents series, made possible by the New York State Council for the Arts. Additional support for the creation of Evergreen provided by DanceNOW/Silo; support for the artists provided by kickstarter.com project backers.
