DESCRIPTION

Please note, the performance will take place on Thursday, March 6 at 6:30pm. The event is free, but an RSVP is needed. Please email info@drawingcenter.org

FIVE (The Drawing Center) is a multimedia performance that highlights the art of voguing—characterized by angular, linear, and rigid body movements—as it relates to the drawn medium. New York-based vogue dancers and musicians, including renowned opera singer, Stefanos Koroneos, and distinguished Vogue Commentator, Kevin Jz Prodigy, will perform and be conducted by Newsome. For FIVE (The Drawing Center), Newsome uses cutting edge technology to challenge the ephemeral nature of live performance by transforming the dancers’ movements into unique line drawings. In addition to the evening performance, video documentation from FIVE (Hong Kong), originally performed at the 2012 Hong Kong International Art Fair, will be exhibited as well as five multi-colored, line drawings produced using motion-tracking software from that performance.

Produced by Joanna Kleinberg Romanow.
