Netta’s Devouring Devouring at La MaMa

Monday, November 19th, 2012

Netta Yerushalmy’s Six Points Project Devouring Devouring will enjoy its world premier at La Mama’s Ellen Stewart Theatre in December! Bringing together a cast of singular and fierce performers from Tel Aviv and New York, and drawing on movement sensibilities from both locales, as well as on Baroque iconography, Netta’s choreography meanders between the representational and the formal, the elegant and the awkward, ultimately probing at the actual or perceived differences between the two.

Judith Berkson’s The Vienna Rite

Tuesday, October 30th, 2012

Early this November, Judith Berkson’s Six Points project The Vienna Rite will premier at Roulette in Brooklyn! The Vienna Rite is a chamber opera about Viennese cantor Salomon Sulzer, whose life spanned most of the 19th century to include a friendship with Franz Schubert, an arrest during the revolution of 1848, being knighted by the emperor, and spreading a liturgical style influenced by the music of his city. The opera will explore these events drawing on influences from Viennese opera, contemporary music and devotional singing of cantors, and will feature a vocal ensemble, percussion, harmoniums and organ.
