PS 122 has also announced plans to co-present Compagnie Dakar's Braakland as part of the New Island Festival and NY400 on Governor's Island in September. Celebrating the work of Dutch artists, the New Island Festival commemorates the 400th anniversary of Henry Hudson's voyage into New York Harbor and up the river that now bears his name.
Running Sept. 10-20, Lotte Van den Berg stages Braakland, which "tells a tale of nine figures wandering about a forgotten land. They surrender to the laws of living and dying, without defense. Is this an existence that they have chosen – or one they merely failed to escape?"
Salley May will curate the Avant-Garde-Arama! festival that features hosts David Ilku and Gina Vetro. Presented Sept. 18 and 19, the mini-festival promises experimental performances in theatre, dance, music, performance art and multimedia.
Brooklyn-based 31 Down will offer The Assembler Dilator, which makes its world premiere Oct. 8 and runs through Oct. 18. The multi-media production is "a sonic meltdown of science fiction and perversion focused on the development of x-ray vision and its consequences, obvious and unknown. Through hypnotic aural and visual design, 31 Down confronts issues of medical research, sources of funding, and the responsibility of science in the near future."
Previously announced PS122 scheduling includes Cupola Barber's Way Out West, The Sea Whispered Me (Sept. 24-27); John Jahnke and Hotel Savant's The Archery Project (Oct. 2-18); Temporary Distortion's Americana Kamikakze (Oct. 24-Nov. 14); Rabih Mroué's Who's Afraid of Representation?
