PUT YOURSELF IN IT.
From June 5 to 30, 2017, Works on Water turns 3LD Art & Technology Center in Lower Manhattan into a boundary-crossing thought hub for 26 days of art + theater in which a diverse cohort of artists, scientists, water advocates and audiences come together for wide-ranging conversation about the relationship between people and water — on an individual, community, and humanitarian scale.
(NOT) WATER is Sheila Callaghan & Daniella Topol’s epic exploration of their epic
exploration of an element so epic it’s taken years to explore. Co-conceived by Sheila Callaghan and Daniella Topol, written by Sheila, directed by Daniella, created with associate playwright Liza Birkenmeier and a design team that includes Deb O, Broken Chord Collective, Cory Einbinder, Barbara Samuels, with science dramaturgy by Guerilla Science
New Georges hosts an inaugural triennial! A core group of artists — Torkwase Dyson, Dylan Gauthier, Marie Lorenz, Mary Mattingly, Clarinda Mac Low, Paloma McGregor, Eve Mosher, Nancy Nowacek, Katie Pearl, Sarah Cameron Sunde, Marina Zurkow — whose works of time-based visual and participatory art use water as site or material and principally exist outdoors, will be represented indoors by installations that serve as portals to the works’ dynamic nature. PLUS satellite projects and one-time art experiences commissioned specifically for Works on Water.
Experiences in climate science as art by Guerilla Science! Multiple celebrations & opening nights! Theatrical works-in-progress by New Georges’ 2016-17 “water residents” Helen Banner, Sarah Einspanier, Emerie Snyder and Lisa Szolovits! Conversations galore with artists/scientists/advocates/urban planners/general smarties! The Power of 10, a 24-hour art event that partners scientists (and urban planners! and advocates!) with artists to instigate dynamic new works!
How much more could there be?? Oh, just you wait!
