My Life Has Been Like Water By Mark Costello

This multimedia project uses a live video loop that explores time as an architectural object; something to be controlled, built, expanded and repeated. Time as if it is poured like water: endless, flowing,emotional, momentous, pure.

untitled homage to my twenties in new york city By Kelly Colburn

A wild and nostalgic investigation of what it means to give up the thing you love most, this performance seeks to uncover what makes New York City exciting and enticing to the natives and the dreamers. Part documentary, part mockumentary, part dance, part theater, part film — this love letter explores the exhilaration, freedom, fear and regret of actively witnessing the death of your youth.

Tickets: Free, tickets required. Get tickets here. Tickets will be available to reserve starting at 12:00 Noon on Monday, January 23, 2017.
