Practice is a multimedia, one-woman performance exploring family, memory and how we see ourselves through the eyes of our parents, even through adulthood. Amy Khoshbin unfolds her family’s story within an interactive video set where she plays the role of herself, as her father - a Baha’i Iranian immigrant, and as her mother - an Italian-American Baha’i convert. Practice was performed in 2011 at Zora Art Space and also The Stone as part of series curated by Lou Reed and Laurie Anderson.
The Princes Of Persuasion Are Planet Africa – Linda the Ballerina returns to New York after running away to Africa, where she befriended a Cameroon Zebra named Odhiambo, after beating him in a camouflage tournament. They became best friends and together developed what would later be known in African dance circles as the “Ballet Club” movement. Tonight she shares her story. Joined by Ithai Benjamin and special guest.
Michael Clemow continues his work with custom electronic instruments and digital synthesis software by further developing compositional methodologies and "performance situations" based on restraints. In These Shackles Will Set You Free, the score is written into the instrument as well as the performance situation and playing the piece is less about reading a score on paper than it is about exploring a possibility space. His experimental compositions have been performed at The Stone, Diapason, Issue Project Room, and other New York venues.
