Video and installation artist Candice Breitz will present New York, New York,
her first-ever live performance, tonight and tomorrow night at Abrons Arts Center. The work is a Performa 09 Arts Commission piece which features two nearly-identical
casts composed of four pairs of identical twins — with each pair of
twins split into two groups of four actors each — presenting two
evenings of improvised performance. The performances will be based on
intensive "character development sessions" that Breitz will hold with
each set of twins to develop a single character that both will play,
although in separate casts and improvisations.
BPT has tickets.
