Colleen Thomas: Light and Desire

Our Season of Anniversaries Opening Performance! 
World Premiere - Sept 15-18, 7:30pm

Thomas with an international feminist cast of 5 collaborators meet audiences with shifted priorities and deep embodiment and articulation of their light and desire. The collective takes a personal and universal look at women artists and asks how women hold, embody and express power by creating their own form of radical expression during fascist times.
Our Season of Anniversaries

This season marks 10 Years of Live Arts and 40 Years of the Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Company!

World Premiere - September 28-October 9, 2021
Wade Thompson Drill Hall - Park Avenue Armory

Using deconstructed texts from Martin Luther King Jr.‘s “I Have a Dream” and Herman Melville’s Moby Dick, the highly personal work explores the interplay of single and group identities and the pursuit of the elusive “we” during fractious times.
Bjorn Amelan Opening Reception

Ford Foundation Live Gallery
Opening Reception: Sept 9, 5:30-7:00pm

Amelan’s paintings, suggestive of archaic writing systems such as ideograms and pictographs, live between the real, the evocative, and the symbolic. He makes a primal mark that he then teases into shapes and figures through shading and contour - each shape is defined by the process that created it.
