Marsha Staiger and Alison Sigethy present Art In Balance: Rhythm and Repetition, with an opening reception to meet the artists on July 8th from 6-8pm!
SPECIAL PROGRAMMING - July 29 at 6pm!
Karen Reedy Dance and Alison Sigethy will perform on July 29th at 6pm in connection with Marsha Staiger and Alison Sigethy's exhibition "Art in Balance".
Special Performance by Alison Sigethy and Karen Reedy Dance (KRD) with music accompaniment by musician/percussionist Jeff Franca.
The evening will begin at the water, directly outside the Torpedo Factory entrance, with Alison Sigethy in her kayak and musician/percussionist, Jeff Franca. The artistic "play" will be passed to the dancers outside in the spirit of improvisation. Eventually, the audience will be invited to follow the music and dancers into the Torpedo Factory. The journey will continue inside with performers of KRD to include a dance inspired by water called "Undertow," danced by New York artists J. Alexis Thury and Rachael Venner. Other dance works will travel through the space towards the Target Gallery, where Karen Reedy finds choreographic inspiration for the evening in the exhibition Art in Balance: Rhythm and Repetition by Marsha Staiger and Alison Sigethy. Other performers will include Karen Reedy and Constance Dinapoli.
