John J Zullo Dance presents an evening of two works, including the World Premiere of "How Brief Eternity", from April 28 – May 1, 2011 at Theater for the New City, 155 First Avenue (between 9th and 10th Streets), NYC. Performances are Thursday – Saturday at 8pm and Sunday at 3pm. Tickets are $20 and are available online at www.theaterforthenewcity.net or by phone at 212-352-3101.
The evening includes the World Premiere of "How Brief Eternity", an exploration of enduring hatreds that can prosper in a flawed society. The work’s conception and creation was inspired by the article “The Hunted” by Matt McAllester in New York Magazine about the genocide of gay men in Iraq as well as the Human Rights Watch report “They Want Us Exterminated: Murder, Torture, Sexual Orientation and Gender in Iraq.” Mio Morales has composed original music for the piece, which will be danced by Christina Chelette, Mike Hodge, Jenna Liberati, Ashley Linsey, Brigitte Mitchell, Or Sagi and John J Zullo. Costume design by Hector Perez, set design by Sean Haynes, lighting design by Lily Meyer and video design by Rodney Zagury. "insignificant others" explores the fleeting relationships experienced between longer, more meaningful ones – the brief moments, encounters and connections. The work, set to the music of Patsy Cline, Peteris Vasks and The Tractor’s Revenge, will be danced by Christina Chelette, Mike Hodge, Jenna Liberati, Ashley Linsey, Brigitte Mitchell, Or Sagi, Kate Vincek and John J Zullo.
