The Martin E. Segal Theatre Center at the Graduate Center, CUNY is pleased to present PRELUDE.11, the eighth annual PRELUDE festival dedicated to artists at the forefront of contemporary New York City theatre, dance and visual art performance. PRELUDE will offer over 20 short performances, readings, and open rehearsals—a completely free sneak-peek into the work being prepared for the 2011/12 season, as well as new commissions and daily panel discussions with artists and performers.
PRELUDE.11 takes as its starting point the dialogue between recent tendencies in theater, dance and visual art performance. For the first time in PRELUDE’s history, it will use the James Gallery at the Graduate Center as well as the Martin E. Segal Theatre Center so that this interdisciplinary festival can continue to investigate the resonances between the “white cube” and the “black box.” Invitees include Jay Scheib, Temporary Distortion, Sibyl Kempson and Big Dance Theater, Donelle Woolford, Jackie Sibblies Drury, Mac Wellman, Suzanne Bocanegra and Paul Lazar, Half Straddle, Daniel Fish, lumberob, Jake Hooker, Otso Huopaniemi, Elevator Repair Service,
