Rhinoceros at Beacon Studios May 2-3 & 9-10


Oy. How late am I on posting this info?

Susan Osberg, Marika Blossfeldt, Dean Sharp and Susan Magnus are collaborating to produce a "salon-style, inter-art performance" called Rhinoceros. As the press release states, "Rhinoceros is a big thing in a small room." The piece will be performed in said small room before an audience of ten.

Choreographer, Susan Osberg was interested in developing a
piece for a small room and breaking away from a theater setting, into a
visual/sound space. This dance will eventually tour to Sweden to be performed in
a clone space called 25 sq. meters. Marika Blossfeldt, an Estonian performer,
known for her presence and haunting ‘Butoh-based’ lyricism, is one of her
favorite dancers, and they have worked together in numerous performances in New
York City. Marika will perform ‘Rhinoceros’, an hour-long solo for an audience
of ten, in a movement narrative that unwinds like a mobius strip. She will take
the audience on an intimate journey through a world of her own, accompanied by
composer, Dean Sharp, who will be playing live, mixing his contemporary Gamelan
with computerized sound loops, and poetry by Susan Osberg. Visual artist, Susan
Magnus has provided the visual concept and reflective materials for
‘Rhinoceros’.
Performances are scheduled for Friday and Saturday Nights, May 2-3 and May 9-10, 2008 at 8pm at Beacon Studios, 211 Fishkill Ave in Beacon.
$12 at the door, reserve in advance, seating is limited to 10.
For reservations call: 845 831-1832 or e-mail susanosberg{at}mac.com with subject “Rhinoceros”.
