Come see what’s sizzling with AEP artists in NYC this weekend!
Australian-born Musician Alex Carpenter is a versatile artist playing the guitar, keyboard, and electric zither. He is performing tonight, Friday June 17th, with Ella Joyce Buckley, supporting PRONTO (featuring Mikael Jorgensen of Wilco). Carpenter will play a short solo guitar set of his Live Audio Delay System, which envelops the audience with accumulating and resonating sound, then another set accompanying Buckley. Visit his AEP page for more info.
Also performing tonight is Convergences Theatre Collective, a group of artists dedicated to creating original work. Acting Out: Desire provides a unique opportunity to step inside the artistic process of CTC as they prepare their upcoming work, The Desirous Project. The evening will be a presentation of early material, revealing how they are exploring and crafting a deeply sensual conversation, giving a layered insight into the creative processes of CTC. Take a look at this project on AEP.
NYC welcomes back Boston-based company Rebecca Rice Dance after a four year hiatus. They will present a program at the Merce Cunningham Theater tonight and Saturday June 18th. Reviving three works and premiering two more, the evening will present a visual and musical feast with music varying from Bach to the blues. With a prolific blend of modernism and musicality, the performances will both defy gravity and celebrate it. Check out details on their AEP page.
LEIMAY is comprised of both the individual work, and collaborations between Ximena Garnica and Shige Moriya. Their current project, Uncovering, is an exploration into the struggle between societal values and self discovery, bringing to light the nature of life. Performed in two installments at The LAB, the audience is invited to watch the unraveling of a struggle between individual self-conception and social pressures from the sidewalk. Performances will be held through June 25th. Find more info on AEP .
