Live at the Archway: Rising Choreographers
Live at the Archway
Live at the Archway is DUMBO's signature series: featuring dynamic musical performances + pop-up gallery + interactive art experience, in a magical, only-in-DUMBO setting. Always free, always all ages + always rain or shine.
This week, be awed by site-specific contemporary dance from six renowned companies. Plus, get up-close with a live art experience led by DUMBO-based artist Marney Fuller.
ON STAGE: WHITE WAVE Young Soon Kim Dance Company
IN THE GALLERY: Marney Fuller
The Archway Under the Manhattan Bridge is a public plaza in DUMBO, Brooklyn. It’s on Water St between Anchorage Place and Adams St.
WHITE WAVE Dance, led by choreographer Young Soon Kim, curates Rising Choreographers NYC performance—an extension of its Wave Rising Series—for a second year at Live at the Archway. Playing off the site specific nature of the space, the evening will feature six innovative and risk-taking dancemakers.
Choreographers and companies to be announced.
Marney Fuller lives in Brooklyn, New York, and her studio is in DUMBO. She received a BA from Western Washington University and an MFA from Pratt Institute. Marney’s art is about fleeting habitats and changing boundaries, and conjures up cross-sections of culture, class, and environment with a “tug of war” throughout, creating a sense of longing and of distancing with the paint being the main attraction. Each canvas features built-up tactile layers, marks and drips, breaking apart an image or idea towards abstraction and then reining in the original references. Her outdoor assemblage sculptures are made mostly from noble metals and wires such as steel, copper and brass, and are playful, unexpected and larger than life.
Every week at Live at the Archway, we assemble (tool-free!) Tfnf’s "The Space Station." It is a replica, in flat pack, modular, franchisable form, of the DUMBO gallery This Friday or Next Friday– “likely the tiniest, most inconsequential gallery in NYC, maybe on the face of the Earth” – founded and run by Nathan Sinai Rayman since 2013 as both a gallery and an artwork. We exhibit a new DUMBO-based artist every Thursday, and invite the public to engage through a live art component, where the artist and public create a collaborative piece together over the course of three hours.
