New York City &ndash\; Whitebox Art Center i s pleased to present the work of opera director R.B. Schlather as part of < em>WhiteboxLab: SoundLounge. \; For two weeks\, Whitebox&rsquo\;s main exhibition space will be a laboratory hosting the first of a series of unconventional works\, culminating in two final performances inspired by G eorge Frideric Handel&rsquo\;s Alcina\, an 18th century baroque opera. This theatric installation draws from the opera seria or &ldquo\;serious opera&rdquo\; of Alcina (1735) with a libre tto by Riccardo Broschi\, L&rsquo\;lsola d&rsquo\;Alcina (1728) ba sed off of Ludovico Ariosto&rsquo\;s epic poem Orlando Furioso. Alcina is a story of love and illusion that premiered during Handel& rsquo\;s remarkable hit season at the Covent Garden Theatre in London in 17 35\, and is regarded as one of his most inventive and melodic musical score s.

\n

WhiteboxLab: SoundLounge and R.B. Schlather respond to the changing landscape of operatic performance in New York City and around the world by staging this work in an untraditional opera venue. As a labora tory\, WhiteboxLab: SoundLounge is delighted to open all dress reh earsals\, starting September 6th\, prior to the final production s on September 21st and 22nd. This program will be fr ee and open to the public\, during our exhibition hours: Wednesday through Sunday\, 11am to 6pm. For the final performances\, the opera will be enacte d live with an orchestra\, in Italian\, utilizing new technologies with pro jected English subtitles.

\n

The opera is set on the island of sorcere ss Alcina. This island exists as a beautiful landscape in the middle of the ocean\, where Alcina culls her powers to create a paradise\, only to lure and seduce the knights that wash up on her shore\, one of whom is the heroi c Ruggiero. Alcina&rsquo\;s magic causes Ruggiero to fall under her spell a nd\, in doing so\, he forsakes his duty as a knight and forgets his fianc&e acute\;e\, Bradamante. The opera develops as Bradamante disguises herself a s male &ldquo\;Ricciardo&rdquo\; and sets out on a mission to recover her l ove. Accompanied by Alcina&rsquo\;s guardian\, Melisso\, the two are shipwr ecked on Alcina&rsquo\;s island by fate. Imminent danger awaits Ruggiero\, as Alcina possesses the power to transform her foes and lovers of whom she tires into rocks\, trees\, and wild beasts. The already heavily dramatized plot is further complicated by the integration of different characters who all\, in their own right\, act on emotions of love and jealousy. Alcina explores themes of identity\, illusion\, and transformation. In portr aying Alcina&rsquo\;s thickened plot\, Schlather&rsquo\;s producti on brings to life a story of enchantment\, folding into it classic operatic moments of romance\, betrayal\, violence\, unrequited love\, and magic.

From July 20 to August 17\, 2014\, PARTICIPANT INC is proud to present Zoe Beloff\,
The Days of the Commune\, an installation base d on Beloff&rsquo\;s restaging of Bertolt
Brecht&rsquo\;s eponymous pl ay. In the spring of 2012\, Beloff brought together a group of
actors\ , activists\, and artists to perform the play in solidarity with Occupy Wal l
Street (OWS). Thinking about OWS as a radical theater of the people\ , the group
conceptualized the project as a &ldquo\;work in progress\, &rdquo\; in the sense that all social
movements are a work in progress . Rather than stage the play in a theater\, The Days
of the Commune wa s performed\, scene by scene\, in public spaces around New York City\,
from Zuccotti Park to an East Village community garden.

\n


The Paris Commune of 1871 was the first great Occupation in modern history. Wri tten
in 1948\, Brecht&rsquo\;s play both dramatizes its short-lived su ccess\, and asks questions
about the struggle for workers&rsquo\; free dom against overwhelming odds. In the process of
restaging the product ion over a period of three months\, March through May (the months
that the Commune actually existed)\, Beloff located significant parallels betwe en that
socialist revolution and the Occupy Wall Street movement (whic h celebrates its third
anniversary on September 17). For example\, bot h stood for living wages\, housing and
free education for all. The cul mination of Beloff&rsquo\;s performance\, video\, and
installation pro ject\, The Days of the Commune is a scripted environment that includes
a video documenting the performances\, props\, costumes\, posters\, and dr awings\, as well
as weekly screenings.

\n

Interested in Eduard Ma net&rsquo\;s drawings of &ldquo\;bloody week&rdquo\; &ndash\; the brutal ma ssacre of
revolutionaries that ended the Commune &ndash\; Beloff used documentary drawing as a way to
begin engaging the OWS movement. More than just a protest movement\, OWS enacted anegalitarian\, alternative econ omy reflecting a Marxist value system championed by
Brecht\, whose &ld quo\;epic&rdquo\; theater invites us think about the events on stage in rel ation
to what is happening in our lives. In this spirit\, Beloff conce ptualized The Days of
the Commune not as historical reenactment\, but a proposal for a commune yet to come.

\n

Soliciting amateur and profes sional actors for the play&rsquo\;s fifty speaking parts
through the O ccupy Performance Guild listserv\, postings in downtown theaters\, and
enlisting her CUNY peers\, Beloff assembled a rotating cast of performers. Wearing
historical costumes paired with contemporary clothes\, the ac tors&rsquo\; intentionally
unrehearsed and ad hoc performances undermi ned the play&rsquo\;s theatrical illusions in
ways not dissimilar to B recht&rsquo\;s &ldquo\;distancing&rdquo\; tactics\, producing an analogous\ , desired
effect.

&ldquo\;More is unknown than is known. We know how much dark energy there is because we know how it affects the Universe's expansion. O ther than that\, it is a complete mystery. But it is an important mystery. It turns out that roughly 68% of the Universe is dark energy. Dark matter m akes up about 27%. The rest - everything on Earth\, everything ever observe d with all of our instruments\, all normal matter - adds up to less than 5% of the Universe. Come to think of it\, maybe it shouldn't be called "norma l" matter at all\, since it is such a small fraction of the Universe.&rdquo \;

\n


- A passage from NASA's website describing Dark Energy/Mat ter.

\n


Dark Map is a show of abstract drawing. Not the orthodox type of late modernist abstraction concerned with formalist purity\, but a different kind of emergent abstraction primarily interested in discovery r ather than stylistic hegemony. Poetically speaking\, it involves going outs ide of what is known into darkness to uncover something new in art and real ity. In all of the work there is a sense of exploring the unknown\, a myste ry\; abstraction as giving form to something unnameable\, or not yet named. Dark Map focuses on drawing because of the medium's long connection to cha rting territories both tangible and intangible\; conversely for its immedia cy\; as jots of visual thought.

\n


The curator states: &ldquo\;I like the less common notion of drawing. Not drawing necessarily as depicti ng or copying something that exists\, but as drawing out something unseen\, conjuring&rdquo\;.

\n


Most of the artists in Dark Map have a pr ocess of finding the shape of their artwork while making it\; they do not k now what the piece will look like until it is done. Many of them use chance and randomness as part of their process. Some use a set of self-imposed ru les whose consequences are unpredictable. Mystery and not knowing
are a part of the artwork.
