The Hollows Performance Studio: "Image of the Sound" & "Mattress"

"IMAGE OF THE SOUND" by Juecheng Chen
7 pm
Duration : ~45 mins

Early music is by nature an art form that is polished, rehearsed and controlled to the most delicate element to fit the composer’s vision and range of emotions. Beatboxing, by comparison is highly improvisational and reliant on the rhythm of the moment. In this idea, the two elements combine but they do not change each other intrinsically. Instead, they take turns in creating and redefining the expectation. The Cantonese countertenor Juecheng Chen, together with the award-winning beatboxer Gene Shinozaki, the guitarist Matt Leece and the visual designer Ventiko will present to you the image of the sound.

"MATTRESS" by Ashley Robicheaux & Artists
Two sessions
8 pm
9:15 pm

Taking place on two floors of The Hollows townhouse
Duration: ~75 min

"Mattress" is a dance-theater work conceived by Ashley Robicheaux which follows the experiences of 5 different performers growing older inside of a historic brownstone in Williamsburg. We perform with our bodies and our voices the narratives which we have truly lived, the stories that are nothing other than our own and that draw from the performers honest and subconscious realities. We use the mattresses as a platform to further explore our movement possibilities as we move through time, unveiling dreams, finding flight, and becoming who we are today.
