Pre-Show Talk May 2 at 6:30pm with Ryan Tracy
Post-Show Talk May 4 with Brian Brooks
Ambient Cowboy is lonely and joyous, dark and funny, violent and loving. Seeded by a visit to Philip Johnson's Glass House – with its brilliantly audacious imposition of serene, spare modernity on the abundant, looming wilderness -Ambient Cowboy explores this fertile landscape of contrasting elements, through dance, drama, sound, and setting. Ambient Cowboy will be performed by Lawrence Cassella, Molly Poerstel, Eleanor Smith, and Ivy Baldwin, with sound design by Justin Jones, set design by Anna Schuleit, and lighting design by Chloë Z. Brown.
Ambient Cowboy is commissioned by New York Live Arts’ DTW Commissioning Fund and is made possible, in part, by the National Endowment for the Arts and the Jerome Foundation. It was developed, in part, at a creative residency at Kaatsbaan International Dance Center through a partnership with New York Live Arts, with support from the New York State DanceForce with funding from the New York State Council on the Arts Dance Program.
