Sundays on Broadway welcomes newcomers Oren Barnoy, Sarah Lifson, and Melanie Maar in a shared evening of performance curated by Mina Nishimura.

Oren Barnoy creates his own version of a daily prayer through movement in this work titled with a symbol. A determined pulse feeds continuous action—vigorous and ecstatic—with the dancers engaged in an unrelenting ritual that pushes the room ever closer toward transcendence.

At once delicate and sensuous, brute and boisterous, Sarah Lifson’s new movement research considers the fashion trend of athleisure, and the new age fetishization of clothing that it has ignited. A continuation of her studies on the objectification and consumption of the performing body, Lifson’s new work contends with the gender and socioeconomic constructs that the trend upholds.

Melanie Maar’s new work indulges in relating to the sentiency in being, object, light, and space. Like a re-sensitizing practice to subtle erotic expressions of seemingly unsexy entities. Maar writes: “It is the feelingness I desire to relate to, to observe and to follow into the performative realm as part of the shared social space of Sundays on Broadway.”
