For these Unclosings World Premiere
"Susie J Lee debuts her new work, For these Unclosings, at New City Theater, August 14th, 15th, 21, and 22nd at 8pm. For these Unclosings is a complex, real-time composition that seamlessly integrates movement, sound and image. Exploring themes of memory--of holding on, of letting go, and arriving--this work creates an intimate theatrical experience in which three distinct characters--dancer, line, and music--push, pull and react to one another at every moment in a nuanced dialogue. Boundaries dissolve between illusion and reality, digital and analog, and presence and absence.
Original choreography and musical compositions have been developed for this work by dancer, Ying Zhou and musician, Emily Greenleaf, Also featured in this ensemble are visual artist Keeara Rhoades and filmmaker Reina Solunaya who have drawn soul and humanity in a simple projected line.
For these Unclosings also features costume design by Catherine Cabeen, lighting by Frank Phillips, and software development by Andy Wilson. Generous support for this project comes from 4Culture, the Mayors Office of Arts and Cultural Affairs, and New City Theater Resident Artist Program, as well as private donations.
