It’s been wonderful working all season long with New York Live Arts on promotional films for their upcoming performances, programs and engagements. You can see the short film we made about Resident Commissioned Artist Okwui Okpokwasili on a blog post from Fall.
New York Live Arts’ Live Feed series is a creative residency program, and a laboratory for the development of new commissioned work directed toward the NYLA theater. Informal public showings offer a sneak peek into each resident artist’s process and ideas before they hit the stage. Each showing takes place within the the Live Arts studio, and is followed by a discussion with the artist moderated by special guests and Live Arts staff.
You can still catch Larissa Velez-Jackson April 15 & 16, and Adrienne Truscott May 20 & 21 at the New York Live Arts Theater. Get your tickets here!
We also did the promo video for their Live Ideas festival, which is devoted to a generation of artists exploring cultural transformations in real time in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region. The festival featured multiple performances, films, lectures, panels and community dialogues by artists from across the region, addressing a wide range of complex issues pertinent to the region including alternative modernities, colonialism, gender, patriarchy, Arab feminism and non-conformist identities within national narratives.
We’ve filmed Live Ideas in the past, and it is so intelligent, so intriguing. We’re really excited to play a part in promoting the work they do and the artists they support through dance video!
