The OPENING of the PS122 building after years of renovation proved to be worth the wait!
The two new spaces – Derek Lloyd stage and Neilma Sidney Theatre – were utilized for the OPENING NIGHT ‘Avant-Garde-Arama.’
Here are my images and video from the AGA Extravaganza on this night!
Opening the show in the Derek Lloyd Stage was Pat Oleszko and her beautiful inflatables.
The theater was packed for the AGA show in the Derek Lloyd theater.
Salley May and the ensemble players bust open the place with a great song and dance exorcism.

Taking its namesake from Variétés de Minéralogie Object (1939), a shadow box by artist Joseph Cornell, The Mineralogy of Objects finds inspiration in Cornell’s repetition and transformation of a female silhouette to create vigorous exercise – a quartet of dancers pushed and pulled by one another, undeniably connected.
“We are a unison machine, a string of beads, an energetic force rejecting our objectification in the refusal to stay still.” – Laurie b
