Filip A. Condeescu: Take #Two
A duet looking at the romance and companionship between two men. Their long-term relationship carries within the seeds to evolve beyond the fire of Eros of the younger days blossoming into deeper, mature, complex connections. Featuring Reginald Webber, Jr.
Milteri Tucker Concepcion: Ashe!
Ashe!, whose title grows from the Yoruban and Santerian word for "blessings," is a fusion of contemporary/modern styles with Caribbean folk movement. The piece connects audiences to the unity of three Caribbean Islands: Puerto Rico (Bomba), Guadalupe (Gwoka) and Cuba (Orishas).
Isabella Diaz + (Alphonso Conway): S/he Jumped, S/he Was Pushed: The Cars' Seat
From a combination of interviews and personal accounts, this work is a narrative about challenging and evolving our physical limitations; specifically speaking out to persons or communities struggling with disabilities. Diaz challenges the audience to focus not on the make and model of your car, but on the seat.
Niall Noel Jones: SPLNDR, #54
SPLNDR, #54 is an extraction, a sublimation, an interruption, an operation, an installation, a fantasy, a manipulation, an imposition, a demonstration, an illumination, an obstruction, a demarcation, an impossibility; a minor architecture.
