TAKE ROOT, now in its 13th season, nurtures dance artists at established stages in their careers, pairing them in a split bill or full evening-length program.

Take Root will present 20 aesthetically diverse artists among seven performances from July 2021 – June 2022.

About the Work

Alison Cook Beatty Dance’s MAHAWAY: SPRING ETERNAL is a two-act ballet that tells the story of a Mother Skunk named Akhushtal, her baby girl Mahaway, and a protective jaguar named Ix Chel. MAHAWAY: SPRING ETERNAL is a commemorative dance & musical celebration of the 100th anniversary of the Paris premiere of Igor Stravinsky’s and Vaslav Nijinsky’s “The Rite of Spring”. Cook-Beatty’s ballet premiered at The Schermerhorn Theater in Brooklyn, NY, on the century anniversary date May 29, 2013, in collaboration with composer Dorian Wallace, the co-artistic director of Tenth Intervention. In this virtual performance, 2019, Tenth Intervention performs live with 25 dancers from Alison Cook Beatty Dance and Infinity Dance Theater, a non-traditional dance company committed to expanding the boundaries of dance by featuring dancers with and without disabilities, under the direction of Artistic Director Kitty Lunn.

Anabella Lenzu’s The night that you stopped acting/ La noche que dejaste de actuar, confronts the absurdity and irony of life, while being an artist and a spectator in today’s world. The work reflects Anabella Lenzu’s experience as a Latina/European artist living in New York and comes from a deep examination of her motivations as a woman, mother, and immigrant.

Available July 16 – December 31, 2021. Tickets on sale now!

Virtual STEAM Workshop: Paper Maché @ Lewis Latimer House Museum | New York | United States

Join us for a two-part versatile method workshop led by artist Antonia Perez!
About this event
Join us for a two-part workshop led by artist Antonia Perez!

Paper Maché is a versatile method of using simple materials to make beautiful, long-lasting three-dimensional objects such as sculptures, masks, and household items. Participants in this two-part workshop will learn how to form an armature (the structure) from found materials, build up the form with paper maché (which means mashed paper in French) and refine their projects into finished artwork. Once you learn the basics of working with paper maché, you can use your imagination to create a wide variety of objects and forms!

Participation in the workshop requires your attendance in both workshops (September 16 and September 30) to learn all the steps needed to complete your project. People of every skill level are welcome, but this workshop is designed for people new to the art of Paper Maché.

Session Schedule:

Thursday, September 16: Learn how to create an armature (your sculpture’s foundation) from found materials.

Thursday, September 30: Learn how to work with Paper Maché, and refine your project into finished artwork.
