About this Event

About the Curator

Puerto Rican choreographer Yanira Castro is a Bessie-award-winning artist. In 2009, she formed the interdisciplinary collaborative group, a canary torsi. Castro’s work borrows from dance, performance, and visual art often utilizing interactive technology to form hybrid works. With her collaborators she has developed over ten projects for the stage, gallery and non-traditional sites ranging from video installations, performances and text-based computer games. The work was been presented most recently in NYC at The Chocolate Factory, The Invisible Dog, Abrons, and Danspace Project. Currently, she is a 2018/19 New York Live Arts’ Live Feed Artist, 2018 Yaddo Fellow and Marble House Project Artist-in-Residence. She has received various awards including NYFA’s Choreography Fellowship, NEFA’s National Dance Project, and a 2019 NYSCA Theater Commission

About Sunday Service

Taking place the first Sunday of each month, a guest curator is invited to organize a salon style evening of cross-disciplinary performances and presentations that brings together a multiplicity of views around a singular prompt, such as a question, theme, or formal structure. Sunday Service centers works in progress, interdisciplinary endeavors, and diversity in format showcased in a lo-fi environment to foster the exploration of ideas and critical discourse amongst peers.
