Sundays on Broadway presents Blaze Ferrer + Nikima Jagudajev + Edie Nightcrawler
Cathy Weis Projects
Sundays on Broadway and guest curator Melanie Maar present an evening of performances with Blaze Ferrer, Nikima Jagudajev, and Edie Nightcrawler.
Blaze Ferrer presents PB, a solo performance generating desire paths as a means to abstract and erode queer fabulist totems. Through head-banging choreographic recursions, the performer grapples with contemporary embodiment by shifting through recognizable figures, and incorporating burlesque strategies into acts of wandering. The work traverses through soundscapes of drum duets and crystal castles in order to manifest a saccharine purgatory both real and imagined.
Nikima Jagudajev’s Crown Shy (June 2, 2019 18:00:00 EST) is a proposal for alchemy, dissolving the distinction between inside and out. In the basement shadows we mess around with test tubes, turning lead into gold. At that moment we wake up to the universe. No differentiation between consciousness and action; between our affect and us. We enter a union of opposites, a third place, Crown Shy.
Daring to walk a line of comfort and surprise, Edie Nightcrawler is always in a relationship, a love relationship, with the audience. The flimsiest reference can magically transcend when imbued with an honest intention and a rigorous execution. Her efforts, she says, “can be offered in service yet harness the power of my own pleasure. Naively, I still believe that a theater is a place for shamanism; and I have had the opportunity to enter this context at many different and ridiculous levels—from dive bars to Caesars Palace. I aim to serve, and not just myself.”
