3/10 - Dimensions Present SPECTRAL CRAVINGS

Plays, performances, poems and sound by Pamela Brown, Andres Clerici,
Lydia Cortes, Kareem Estefan, Maria Mirabal, William Owen, Austin Publicover, Gail Tuch & Phyllis Wat
Coordinated by Rachel Levitsky

Monday, March 10, 7:00-9:00pm
@ Dixon Place
(258 Bowery, 2nd Floor—Between Houston & Prince)
Admission is $5 at the Door.

SPECTRAL CRAVINGS is an evening of plays that explore language, poems
that extend into performance, and all that falls in between the two
genres. The original works range widely in form and content, yet
share a grounded sensibility and commitment to infusing life into
poetry by stretching its limits. Lydia Cortes' short poetic dialogue
slices into a devolving intercultural marriage. Phyllis Wat will
present abstract sound poems, a collaboration with Austin
Publicover. Kareem Estefan's semi-improvisational performance recycles found
objects to generate conversations among the audience. Maria
Mirabal's ambiguous couple speak a language generated on and by the
train. Andres Clerici's visual expansions find air in claustrophobic
city backyards. William Owen and Pamela Brown collaboratively write
the meeting of East and West, and Gail Tuch has written A Play about
the possibility of play.

Dixon Place, a home for performing and literary artists, is dedicated
to supporting the creative process by presenting original works of
theater, dance and literature at various stages of development. An
artistic laboratory with an audience, we serve as a safety net,
enabling artists to present challenging and questioning work that
pushes the limits of artistic expression. With a warm, nurturing
atmosphere that encourages and inspires artists of all stripes and
persuasions, we place special emphasis on the needs of women, people
of color, youth, seniors and lesbian/gay artists. Dixon Place is a
local haven for creativity as well as an international model for the
open exploration of the process of creation.
