Presented in the Pete B. Lewis Theater, the series launches in September with Rafael Lozano-Hemmer's Levels of Nothingness. Inspired by Wassily Kandisky's experimental theatre work The Yellow Sound, Lozano-Hemmer has created an interactive installation that will feature readings by Isabella Rossellini. (Sept. 17-21).
Another Kandisky-inspired presentation will be The Blue Rider in Performance. Armitage Gone! Dance — run by Tony-nominated choreographer Karole Armitage (Hair, Passing Strange) — will perform to the music of Schoenberg's "Second String Quartet," accompanied by the Brentano String Quartet. The piece also features pianist Sarah Rothenberg and vocalist Susan Narucki. (Sept. 23-25).
Poet Ariana Reines will present the theatrical work Miss St.'s Hieroglyphic Suffering, starring Birgit Huppuch and directed by Ken Rus Schmoll. (Nov. 15-16).
Fashion designer Isaac Mizrahi will narrate a special presentation of Sergei Prokofiev's Peter and the Wolf. The encore presentation will feature New York City Opera's George Manahan conducting the Juilliard Ensemble. Tony winner Jennifer Tipton provides lighting design. (Dec. 10-14).
