It Won't Buy You Lunch
An evening length multimedia collaboration presented by The Tank at Standard Toykraft (722 Metropolitan Ave, Brooklyn, NY)
November 19-21, @ 8pm
It Won't Buy You Lunch is a collaboration between Sydney Schiff Dance Project and members of the Open Music Ensemble (organized by Philip Foster) that questions why the performers pursue art as their careers (when they could very well be doctors and i-bankers) and why they do it in New York City (a psychotically expensive place to call home). We hope that by the time you leave you won't be wondering anymore.
In addition to four dancers (Stephanie Chun, Elisabeth Martin, Leigh Schanfein, Anna Schon) and four OME musicians (Nicole DeVault, Kaveh Haghtalab, John Murchison, Jonathan Saraga), SSDP has also teamed up with inventor-designer Robert Olsen, lighting designer Tracy Lynn Wertheimer, filmmaker Jaffe DeVault, costume designer Samantha Gebb and visual artist Gregg Emery.
