SNUG HARBOR PRESENTS A PERFORMING ARTS SALON SATURDAY PERFECT FOR HALLOWEEN
The Lorca Project: Green, How I Want You Green By David Antonio Cruz\
Snug Harbor Cultural Center & Botanical Garden is pleased to present another production in its Performing Arts Salon Saturdays (PASS) series. The Lorca Project: Green, How I Want You Green by noted multi-disciplinary visual artist David Antonio Cruz takes place on Saturday, October 31, 2015 at 6:00 PM. As with all Snug Harbor’s PASS performances, there will be a pre-performance reception at 5:00 PM and a post-performance discussion at 7:00 featuring a guest moderator. PASS performances are held in the Newhouse Center for Contemporary Art on the Snug Harbor campus at 1000 Richmond Terrace. Admission is $10, but participants who come in costume for Halloween will be admitted for half-price at the door.
“This innovative production, which fuses video, costume construction, live performance and sculpture installations with music, is a definite complement to our PASS series as well as appropriate for Halloween activities,” said Snug Harbor Artistic Director, Gabri Christa. “In the production, Cruz explores and redefines queerness, diasporic, psychological and ever-shifting unnamed spaces.”
The Lorca Project: Green, How I Want You Green is a bilingual, experimental and interactive live performance. It is based on Sonnets of Dark Love, the last poems of Federico Garcia Lorca, considered one of Spain’s greatest poets and dramatists. Lorca’s work was considered excessively daring for its time and was banned for 50 years after his assassination in 1936. The sonnets are also the inspiration for the music in the piece, composed and performed by cellist and songwriter Daniel de Jesus.
Daniel Antonio Cruz is a New York-based, multi-disciplinary artist. He earned his MFA from Yale University and his BFA from Pratt Institute. Cruz attended the Skowhegan School for Painting and Sculpture residency program and the Artist in the Marketplace program at the Bronx Museum. He has received grants from the Franklin Furnace Fund and the Urban Artist Initiative award. He is currently resident artist in the Gateway Project Space Program. His work has been exhibited at El Museo del Barrio, the Bronx Museum, and Museo de Puerto Rico, among others.
