D-CELL: an Exhibition & Durational Performance
September 11 @ 5:00 am - 8:00 pmFree with registration
D-CELL: an Exhibition & Durational Performance in two parts is conceived and directed by multi-disciplinary visual artist David Michalek.
D-CELL presents an encounter with deceleration in both dance and visual art. The project, a hybrid between an exhibition and a performance, is comprised of two distinct but related works:
SlowDancingLive1 (2020 premiere)
Utilizing PS21’s architecture, grounds, and trails as media canvas, dancers from BodySonnet, Peridance, and Gallim will perform decelerated sequences on sand-covered raised platforms stationed throughout the landscape. Live music by the Neave Trio will accompany the movement with works by Morton Feldman, whose compositions “seldom rise above a whisper . . . glacially slow and snowily soft” (Alex Ross, the New Yorker).
September 6: 11 am – 2 pm

Portraits in Dramatic Time (2010)
The video installation, commissioned by Lincoln Center Festival and the Lincoln Center Public Art Fund, utilizes ultra-high-speed cameras to record scenes with well-known theater and film performers which, when played back, unfold at a glacial pace, thereby creating new layers of scenic content and meaning. Portraits in Dramatic Time features leading actors including Lili Taylor, William H. Macy, Patti LuPone, Holly Hunter, Alan Rickman, Ludivigne Sagnier, and Liev Schreiber. It will screen in the evenings in the Pavilion theater on Sept. 6, 7, 11, 12 with musical accompaniment by the Neave Trio.
