A New Species at the Brooklyn Botanical Garden: Live Performance at Twilight
Yanira Castro/ a canari torsi: Paradis at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden
June 2-4, 8pm. June 5 rain date
1000 Washington Avenue
For the first time ever in its 100-year history, the Brooklyn Botanic Garden will host site-specific performances on its grounds. At twilight, director/choreographer Yanira Castro and her interdisciplinary arts organization “a canary torsi” will present the three-part piece Paradis in two locations in the garden: the Desert House in the Steinhardt Conservatory and the Cherry Esplanade. Paradis is inspired by the final section of Jean-Luc Godard’s 2004 film, Notre Musique, and it promises an unusual role for the audience, whose actions will be tracked to generate a specific sound, light and movement environment. It will include live piano by Michael Daupinais and a solo dance performance by Peter Schmitz.
