“I” at Sundays on Broadway
June 6, 2019
Between Prince and Spring Streets
New York, N.Y.
In I (as in “imprint” and “in print”), through written, spoken, and embodied language, Jeremy Nelson and Luis Lara Malvacías delve into memories of past, present, and future using the stage as a large surface or open canvas to be transformed. I is the seventh work in a series of highly structured improvisational duets: From A to Z. Taking each piece’s title from a different letter of the alphabet, the project focuses on many aspects of time, and uses signposts and issues connected with life and aging as a framework for these explorations.
SUNDAYS ON BROADWAY at WeisAcres (June 9, 6 p.m.). This intimate performance series, held in Cathy Weis’s downtown loft, concludes its spring season with a program curated by Weis and Emily Climer. Their guests include Jeremy Nelson and Luis Lara Malvacías, presenting the seventh in a series of improvised duets that explore time and aging, and Walter Dundervill and the video artist Iki Nakagawa, who have turned the process of creating a dance film into its own work. A programmatic gap in the fall was creatively filled by improvisational dances from a number of artists, and that fix was so successful it will be repeated as “Shorties,” described in press materials as “a flurry of micro- dances,” featuring 10 artists in one- to two-minute improvisations. cathyweis.org
