This weekend is packed with great performances on the Lower East Side. Here are some top picks for events happening in the neighborhood:
- Don’t forget to get your act together and audition for the Lower East Side Talent Showcase. They are seeking singers, actors, dancers, bands, comics, poets, and novelty acts. Auditions will be held this Friday from 6-9pm and Sunday from 3-6pm at Abrons Arts Center – 466 Grand Street.
Internationally acclaimed choreographer Jonah Bokaer has teamed up with the interdisciplinary design firm Harrison Atelier to produce the co-creation, Anchises. The work debuted at the newly opened Pavilion Dance in Bournemouth, UK in October, and will receive it’s U.S. premier at the Abrons Arts Center beginning tonight. Harrison Atelier writes that the piece “gives visual and physical expression to the themes of aging, use and reuse of materials, and the role of space in determining the body’s range and potential.”
