“Many dances on an ISLAND, a GHOST of what they were, having lost details during a long SLEEP but nevertheless the PRINCESS of their destiny. This TIME it is one STORY, full of fortuitous meetings, grave errors and happy misunderstandings. It’s a SHOW folks!”—Wally Cardona and Jennifer Lacey


THE SET UP: ISLAND GHOST SLEEP PRINCESS TIME STORY SHOW has been setting itself up for five years now. The multiple dances, co-created by Jennifer Lacey and Wally Cardona are made in collaboration with seven master artists who have dedicated their lives to their respective dance traditions: I Nyoman Catra (Balinese Topeng), Proeung Chhieng (Cambodian), Junko Fisher (Okinawan), Saya Lei (Mandalay-style, classical Burmese), Jean-Christophe Paré (French baroque), Kapila Venu (Indian Kutiyattam) and Heni Winahyuningsih (Javanese refined). Between 2012–2016 each of the dances was created very rapidly, one by one, immediately following an encounter with each master artist. Each dance was made and performed in its own distinct location.

Now, for the first, last and only time, the dances—featuring live music by Jonathan Bepler, Reiko Fueting and Megan Schubert—will be presented on and near Governors Island over the two weekends of the River To River Festival, along with performances by some of the master artists themselves. Part reclamation and part reimagining, the final stage of THE SET UP gathers these dances (each holding within them other dances, other locations and many other people) in immediate relation to each other. In addition to experiencing as many of the dances as they like, audiences will also have the opportunity to visit “resource rooms” with project memories and artifacts, open continuously over the course of the two weekends, where a variety of to-be-announced programs and presentations will also take place.
Resource Rooms:

June 17–18, 12–6 p.m.
June 24–25, 12–6 p.m.
Governors Island: LMCC’s Arts Center
