READ MORE ABOUT THE EVENTS
Ecstatic Dance is a conscious dance event for free-form dance movement. There are no steps, no structures, no teachers – just an ecstatic exploration of what is present as sound and rhythm. No dance training or background is needed and everyone is welcome.
Solo Pavilion for Two or Three:
James Casebere’s Solo Pavilion for Two or Three, an imposing new work by the photographer and installation artist, was unveiled at PS21 on May 30, in conjunction with Upstate Diary’s Art Trek ’21, the magazine’s annual curated tour of noteworthy art happenings in the region. With Solo Pavilion for Two or Three, Casebere extends the interrogation of the constructed environment that he began in 1975. Like his earlier works, it is rich in ambivalence: luminous yet portentous, offering protection but open, exposed to the elements while shielding its occupants. To Casebere, the result is “a playful atmosphere…an expression of the indomitable human spirit.”
You Are Here (aka The Maze):
Mounted next to PS21’s Pavilion Theater, You Are Here invites audiences to challenge habits of assembly. A literal maze, the labyrinthine assemblage of hallways reconfigures audience-hood by dint of each attendees’ navigation of the structure. Picking up on and intersecting with PS21’s many paths and trails, this iteration of TROUBLE’s Maze has been designed specifically with PS21’s majestic campus in mind
