- The American premiere of choreographer Meg Stuart’s BLESSED comes to New York Live Arts in Chelsea tomorrow, for a run that will last from January 12-14. It is a rare opportunity to see Stuart’s work here in the U.S. Though she was born in the States, Stuart lives and mostly works in Europe, where her experimental work has been highly influential.
This 2007 production of BLESSED has a score by Hahn Rowe and a cardboard set by Doris Dziersk that at first appears to be a paradise but literally falls apart when it begins to rain. The largely solo work features Portuguese dancer/choreographer Francisco Camacho in the role of a man struggling to cope as his world collapses around him.
Tickets are $15 – $30. There will be a pre-show talk at the January 12 at 6:30pm performance, and a post-show talk after the performance on January 13. Find out more here.
