No Longer Showing.
PREMIERE brings together performers Biba Bell, Hristoula Harakas, Robert Steijn, Andros Zins-Browne and Hassabi, sound designer Alex Waterman, and visual artist/dramaturg Scott Lyall. A premiere, a highly anticipated event, represents the first meeting with the public: the audience, as viewer and critic. Essentially this moment is what validates the existence of any creation as a “work of art.” Hassabi’s PREMIERE takes its time and explores this first public encounter.
Co-presented with Performa 13.
Maria Hassabi PREMIERE is made possible with support from Mertz Gilmore Foundation, The Jerome Robbins Foundation, The Harkness Foundation for Dance, and with public funds from New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council and New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature. PREMIERE is also a co-production of Kunstenfestivaldesarts (Brussels, Belgium), Kaaitheater (Brussels, Belgium), steirischer herbst (Graz, Austria), Dance4 (Nottingham, UK) and is produced with the support of the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council’s Extended Life Dance Development Program, which is made possible by The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. The work has received additional funding from the MAP Fund, the Jerome Foundation, Mertz Gilmore Foundation’s Late-Stage Production Stipends, and the LMCC Manhattan Community Arts Fund. Maria Hassabi is a recipient of a Process Space 2013 artist residency made possible by LMCC to develop PREMIERE.
