INCOMING!   SISTER SYLVESTER

They Are Gone But Here Must I Remain

     

Saturday, January 9 - Saturday, January 16

The Public: Shiva Theater


     

Running time: 70 minutes

What is the relationship between image and action? In their performance-lecture, Sister Sylvester look for an answer in Peter Whitehead’s 1969 film The Fall—and the student occupations in Athens (and subsequent collapse of the Greek junta) that film may have inspired.

Sister Sylvester is a New York-based company whose work combines documentary with fiction to explore the fault-lines of power in the contemporary world. Formed in 2008, they have created work in both site-specific venues as well as in theaters, including JACK, Abrons Art Center, Park Avenue Armory, and Sing Sing Karaoke.

This performance was developed though a residency at the Park Avenue Armory (guest of Sasha Frere-Jones) and at Köşe in Istanbul; the premiere was presented by JACK. They Are Gone But Here Must I Remain was developed through a residency with Dixon Place in NYC and partially funded by the Jerome Foundation.

INCOMING! is UTR’s festival within a festival, featuring in-process works of artistic ambition by the wildly diverse artists of the Devised Theater Working Group.
