The king of the multi-hyphenate, James Franco, is presenting a new performance piece at MoMA PS1 on April 7.
The San Francisco Museum of Modern Art brings together three decades worth of visual art inspired by and commenting on performance and theatricality.
This week, the train won’t be the only thing running along the 7 line. The fourth-annual Queens Art Express is a borough-wide art/music/food/performance/literature festival presented by the Queens Council on the Arts.
A sixteen-member cast of actors, dancers, and musicians sourced from all over Europe will recount Jan Decortes’s dark interpretation of Sophocles’ myth, accompanied by guitarist Elko Elko Blijweert and blues legend Roland Van Campenhout.
Lights swivel, shadows flit in the darkness, and dark figures flood the stage. Sound and sight are closely guarded, and neither is spared in the creation of a truly haunting effect. Blood drips loudly from the hands of Macbeth (played by Guy Oliver Watts) to the floor, creating the iconic spot that remains for the duration of the performance.
If you missed the 2011 UK premiere of The Life and Death of Mariana Abramović, the quasi-opera directed by Robert Wilson based on the life and fictitious death of the artist, you’re in luck: the star-studded production opened at the Teatro Real in Madrid last week and will run until April 22nd.
