Sundays on Broadway
an ongoing series created by Cathy Weis Projects
Weis Acres, 537 Broadway #3
November 23, 2014 at 8pm
Curated by Catherine Galasso featuring work by Andy de Groat and Jim Neu
A cross-generational gathering and performance event that celebrates NY performance history and the contemporary question of archiving through the re-creation of works by seminal downtown artists Andy de Groat and Jim Neu. The evening includes readings of two short scenes written Neu, a live re-performance of de Groat's Rope Dance Translations from 1974, followed by a structured improvisation between young dancers and former Andy de Groat collaborators.
Jim Neu scenes performed by Jess Barbagallo, Joshua William Gelb and Keith McDermott.
Andy de Groat's Rope Dance Translations performed by Rachel Berman, Christine Bonansea, Patrick Gallagher and Buck Wanner.
Discussion and improvisation by former Andy de Groat collaborators (special guests to be announced.)
