We hope you are all safe and sound, well-supplied and in good company. The hurricane has brought disaster and great disruption. It also brings to mind the wisdom of "considering adversity as a friend".
The choir began as a response to 'humanmade' crises and as need for new reparative practices. So here we are, in our proper element, applying our resourcefulness to this natural disaster (legally a hurricane is considered a "force majeure" or "act of God").
The update is:
Due to the explosion at the ConEd substation on 14th Street, New York Live Arts is without electricity and has cancelled this week's performances of E-V-E-R-Y-O-N-E. In the upcoming days, we'll sit down with NYLA and reschedule the show later in the season. Right now, while we're in this state of readiness-to-perform, we're looking for a way to run a version of E-V-E-R-Y-O-N-E at a backup location for the benefit of some of our local supporters, for our own benefit and in order to produce video and sound recordings of the work. (Perhaps this emergency show will be re-named E-V-E-R-Y-O-N-E WELCOMES FORCE MAJEURE.)
All tickets for the NYLA performance can be exchanged for a future show. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Please understand that it will take days, if not weeks, to settle on an alternative schedule.
We will keep you informed as the situation develops.
Please feel free to call us: 718 450 1356, or email us at email@example.com, with any questions.
Deeply grateful for your support,
Daria & Robert
