@ Triskelion Arts, Aldous Theater
New York, NY, February 25, 2013 – Triskelion Arts presents the premiere of ODDBALL ZEBRA, a new work by New York choreographer Stefanie Nelson for six dancers. After last year’s acclaimed, sold-out run of Prolegomena, Triskelion Arts eagerly sponsored the development of this fresh and original new work by Ms. Nelson. Inspired by the myriad social connotations and moral implications associated with stripes, ODDBALL ZEBRA focuses on the social aspects of being an outcast. Utilizing the archetypal figure of the clown as a point of departure, this piece extols the virtues of failing and falling and letting go, with pleasure. Hailed as "zany, theatrical, macabre," (Arts and Culture Magazine) ODDBALL ZEBRA promises an evening that will fire the imagination.
Featuring dancers Nicole von Arx, Katherine Federowicz, Gierre Godley, Sarah Parker, Hunt Parr,Yin Yue, with a special appearance by Abby Bender. Original music by Jonah Kreitner, Juan Pablo Mantilla, and Sahand Rahbar; with additional music by Naught, Dave Nelson, Justin Randolph Thompson, and Victor Rice. Visual art by Jeremy Weichsel. Light design by Andrew Dickerson.
Performances take place at Triskelion Arts, Aldous Theater, March 8, 9, and 10 at 8pm.
