BAM and Performa present
More up a Tree
By de Serpa Soares, Sussman, and White

On one side of a two-way surveillance mirror, the audience peers in on an experiment: dancer Claudia de Serpa Soares (Sasha Waltz & Guests) and drummer Jim White (Dirty Three) attempting to create something resembling melody using movement, rhythm, and light. Created by de Serpa Soares, White, and artist Eve Sussman (Rufus Corporation) and co-presented by Performa 15, this inventive performance work—in which the fourth wall is just as much a window—heightens the hermetic world of artists and voyeuristic role of audiences as its tandem soloists go roving.

Choreography by Claudia de Serpa Soares
Installation by Eve Sussman
Music by Jim White

Leadership support for BAM Visual Art provided by:

Agnes Gund and Toby Devan Lewis

 

This performance is not seated. Audiences are permitted to move around the installation or sit on the floor during the performance. There will be very limited seating available for those who require it.
