LABAlive presents BEAUTY / BOUNDARIES on June 2, 2016 at 7:30pm at the Theater at the 14th Street Y, 344 E. 14th Street, New York, NY.
Crossing boundaries alters our perceptions, including our perception of beauty. Experience three new multi-disciplinary works-in-process and the teachings of the ancient text that inspired them, created by LABA Fellows Lainie Fefferman, Lital Dotan, and Shanti Grumbine and partnered with a teaching from Reuben Namdar.
Lital Dotan / Second Floor
"Second Floor" is an immersive theater piece about an ambitious performance artist constantly testing the boundaries of her art. A violent interruption causes the line between reality and performance to become blurred.
Lainie Fefferman / Market Day
"Market Day," a graphic novel by James Strum about a visionary rug maker in turn-of-the-century Europe whose handiwork is no longer valued in a post-industrialized world. The book comes to life in an animated film and an original score by Fefferman for the JACK String Quartet.
Shanti Grumbine / The Last Color: A Reliquary
What happens when a community is so inundated with information that they lose language completely? The Last Color: A Reliquary is a multi-disciplinary project that investigates the effects of information overload on contemporary culture.
"The work denotes a point of communication breakdown in the media and holds us there while she transforms it. Grumbine alchemically shifts everyday media into an ethereal realm of mind and soul...."
