Dramatist Guild and Tisch MFA alumni David Gomez will premiere three new works accompanying himself on the accordion.
Dancer and choreographer Kaitlyn Gardner will stage an excerpt from her new work A Toast exploring intangibility. What truly exists and what doesn’t? How does time flow in multiple ways simultaneously? Kaitlyn will also probe at audience’s interpretation of dance, especially those less familiar with the form.
Creative producer/rapper/beatboxer Luke “Skippy” Harbur will test out a new framework for his creativity. Selecting four songs from his 40+ discography, Skippy will transform his lyrics into the style of poetry, focusing on the word’s meaning without a backing track or distractions.
