KOOL
Dancing In My Mind
By Robert Wilson

Friday, April 17th, 7:30pm
Saturday, April 18th, 7:30pm
Suzushi Hanayagi, Osaka © Robert Wilson, 2008


Performance added due to overwhelming demand:
Saturday, April 18 @ 4:30pm

Robert Wilson, working with Carla Blank, creates a performance-portrait inspired by Suzushi Hanayagi, legendary Japanese performer and choreographer of classical dance. Wilson started working with Hanayagi in his 1984 production of The Knee Plays, which was partially developed in Japan. In 2008 he sought her out in an Osaka home for the elderly where she has been living for years in a state of dementia. Archival and newly filmed material of Hanayagi by Richard Rutkowski is combined with recreation of performance material and newly choreographed dances by Jonah Bokaer and Illenk Gentille. The work reflects Hanayagi’s current state and serves as a poetic monument to a working friendship.

KOOL-Dancing in My Mind is co-produced and co-commissioned by Works & Process; Guild Hall, East Hampton; and the Byrd Hoffman Watermill Foundation with support from the Jerome Robbins Foundation.

Art in the Park 2009

As the temperature slowly climbs into Spring, Riverside Park is coming back to life.  Our volunteer projects have begun again in full force, and our first North Park community event is coming up in less than a month.  On Saturday May 9th Riverside Park Fund, in collaboration with Harlem School for the Arts (HSA), will be holding our first ever evening of Art in the Park.  This event grew out of a number of discussions with teachers from HSA about our mutual desire to create a free and open exhibition of youth arts that will celebrate the open spaces and parks of West Harlem.  At this point we have musicians, photographers, actors and visual artists from HSA contributing their work and performances, but we are eager to include youth artists from all over Harlem.  I have attached a flyer that I will be distributing throughout West Harlem, putting out an open call for youth artists.  If you know any artists under the age of 18 who might be interested in this event do me the favor of passing this flyer on to them, or if you simply know anybody who would like to come see the wide array of spectacular arts that will be on display, please help me spread the word.  I am very excited about this event and I look forward to seeing you there.

Art in the Park will be taking place in a majestic, but underused portion of Riverside Park located directly West of Riverside Drive between 152nd Street and 150th St.  The space is an immense stone amphitheater with staircases descending into it from Riverside Drive.  Take a look at the space if you get a chance, and get in touch with me if you have any suggestions or questions.  I will send out further details closer to the date of the event.
