Cathy Weis expands her multi-room installation that premiered at Sundays on Broadway in March 2015. A crystal ball, constructed by Aaron Parsekian, provides a portal to works from the recent past. Performances from the early 20th century flicker in one room while dancers perform live in another.

Jennifer Miller, Cathy Weis, and Clare Dolan will present a new collaboration. Three unusual bodies perform three unusual solos highlighting each performer’s singularity and unique sense of humor.

Cathy Weis & Jon Kinzel

Renowned filmmaker Charles Atlas will present selections from his recent work (2010-2016). This will include excerpts from Cowboy Body (2015), based on his work with Douglas Dunn, MC9 (2012) and other pieces based on his early work with Merce Cunningham, and The Pedestrians (2011), a collaboration with Mike Tajima. He will also discuss other large-scale installations, live video works, and his current collaboration with Rashaun Mitchell and Silas Riener.

Performance: A shared program with Vicky Shick & Eva Karczag and Cathy Weis
Vicky Shick and Eva Karczag, longtime colleagues dating back to the 1980s in the Trisha Brown Dance Company (and often mistaken for each other on the street and even onstage) will investigate their differences in a small duet entitled your blue is my purple. Cathy Weis will present Down at the Courthouse, the latest iteration of her work Jury Duty, in which she dances and tells stories about being called for jury duty as her live image is projected behind her.
