Food for Thought presents multiple artists over one weekend with a different guest curator each evening.


THURSDAY, APRIL 30: This is not the end: an evening with the 2013-2015 Movement Research Artists-in-Residence curated by JEANINE DURNING
Featuring Ivy Baldwin, Whitney Hunter, Sam Kim, Joanna Kotze, Stanley Love, Juliette Mapp, Mina Nishimura, and Ni'Ja Whitson Adebanjo.
A current participant in the Movement Research Artist-in-Residence program, Jeanine Durning invites her fellow artists-in-residence to continue the dialogue and exchange through sharing an aspect of their current practice: the work behind the work, the question before the answer, the glimmer of inspiration, the not-yet, the unsaid, the spoken, the traceable or erasable.

FRIDAY, MAY 1: Charged Space curated by DAVID THOMSON
Featuring Daria Faïn, Christine Bonansea Saulut, and Massimiliano Balduzzi
Selected by Thomson for their presence and how they choreographically energize the spaces they inhabit, these three artists--working in their own unique vocabularies--will present a solo exploring various states of being through investigations of form or character.

Featuring Alex Escalante, Niall Jones, and Dai Jian
"Alex, Niall and Dai Jian are amazing, delicious, funny and sincere dance makers A.N.D. can dance like no tomorrow. They are food and thought combined in a delicious mix of slippery, poignant and simple complexity." –Iréne Hultman

*All canned goods are donated to St. Mark’s Church in-the-Bowery food distribution programs.

Food for Thought is presented, in part, with public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, in partnership with the City Council as well as City Council Member Rosie Mendez.
