…its only a rehearsal
This Wednesday, November 30th, marks the beginning of NØ5 – Norway In New York. This is a two-week festival of the best of cutting edge live art from Norway being presented at P.S. 122. NØ5 features performances from zero visibility corp, Baktruppen, Ole Mads Vevle, Hooman Sharifi and Verdensteateret. Many of the presentations are either free or low cost so this is a great opportunity to see something different. Check out www.ps122.org for more info on all the artists.
The first show is a wonderful dance piece entitled “…it’s only a rehearsal” which is a powerful, physical and dense duet intertwining Ovid’s story of Acteaon and Artemis. This classic coupling is exquisitely abstracted into hot choreography in an hour-long pas de deux, deftly wrapping the story of love and revenge round the dancers’ bodies until it becomes skin. Choreographed by Ina Christel Johannessen. Danced by Line Tormoen and Dimitri Jourde, it is a really special show. Performances are on November 30th and December 1 at 8 p.m. and are free. Reserve tickets by emailing the P.S. 122 box office at firstname.lastname@example.org. Be sure to include your contact info and the show date on which you’d like to attend. Tickets are first come, first served.
