Narcissus (Live Feed In-Process)

 

Set to Nikolai Tcherepnin’s ballet score Narcisse et Echo composed in 1911 for the Ballets Russes, Narcissus is an original evening-length work reappropriating themes of the eponymous ancient Greek myth on which it is based to re-imagine the original ballet through a contemporary queer lens.

The November in-process showing will include seven performers: Casey Hess, Russell Janzen, Gildas Lemmonier, Alexander Olivieri, Logan Pedon, Taylor Stanley, and Mac Twining.

For the world premiere of Narcissus as part of next years’ New York Live Arts season, Miguel Anaya, Christiana Axelsen, Cemiyon Barber, Jin Ju Song-Begin, Janet Charleston, Breckyn Drescher,  Alan Good, I-Ling Liu, Justin Lynch, and Caitlin Scranton will perform in addition to the seven aforementioned performers; production team includes Andrew Jordan (Costume Designs), David R. Harper (Set Design), and Joe Levasseur (Lightning Design).


The Live Feed creative residency program supports and nurtures the development of new work with residencies and commissions generated over two years.

Lead support of Live Feed is generously provided by Partners for New Performance and Rockefeller Brothers Fund.
