The work of jill sigman/thinkdance exists at the intersection of dance, theater, and visual installation. Described as an artist of “prodigious imagination and intelligence” by The New York Times, Sigman transforms simple actions like walking on eggshells, sliding down the stairs, and eating hot pink roses into complex statements about self, society, and human experience.
Miguel Frasconi is a composer and improviser specializing in the relationship between acoustic objects and musical form. His work was recently featured in the Leonardo Music Journal (#22; Acoustics) and in 2012 The New York Times called his CAGE100 festival “one of the best observances of John Cage’s birthday.”
Cristian Amigo is a composer, guitarist, producer and educator who writes and performs avant-music for chamber ensembles, orchestra, opera, theater, and film. He is composer-in-residence at INTAR Theater. Time Out New York writes “during any given performance [by Amigo], Messiaen grapples with Led Zeppelin while Perez Prado teaches Stravinsky to mambo.”
“…profound, subtle, unconventional, Overground Physical Theatre Company is the avant-garde epitome of kinetic intelligence and esoteric vision…” -Theatre Magazine
OVERGROUND PHYSICAL THEATRE COMPANY performs excerpts from X-Stream: a “kinetic zoom” of dance, video and theatre that views the transience of the human experience through the lives of nine contemporary women living on the edge of uncertainty. Victimized by ecological insanity and mass consumption, they lose their senses and shut off from the outside world, only to rediscover they are a link in the chain between self and other.
