On a shared program with Masanori Asahara and Moeno Wakamatsu, Racoco Productions will show a new collaboration with visual artist Stephanie Beck and composer Lynn Wright, Paper Work, charting ideas of "progress," territorial expansion, discipline, and disorder.
Tactile trios of sound, paper, and the body continuously create and destroy shifting landscapes, echoing the tension between the desire for civilization and the constant call to new territory.

Visual artist Stephanie Beck and Racoco will follow up their premiere performance at CAVE's SOAK festival with an installation and series of performances at 1351 Amsterdam Avenue in Harlem as part of Chashama's Summer Performance Series.
Continuing their exploration of paper, "Detritus" starts in an empty space and during a series of performances slowly transforms into a variety of paper landscapes. Walk past the window, come inside to interact with the installation, and stay for a performance!
The installation will be open to the public Saturday, June 21, from 3pm to 9pm, Sunday from noon to 8pm, and Monday from 10am to 9pm.
