As part of the 2017 River To River Festival and coinciding with the opening of Katja Novitskova: EARTH POTENTIAL, Maria Hassabi’s STAGED? (2016) - undressed will be performed in City Hall Park among Novitskova's seven new sculptural works for two nights only.
In STAGED?, four performers in abstractly patterned clothing are entangled in a slowly metamorphosing living sculpture. In its “undressed” iteration for River To River, away from its theatrical setting, the work invites the context of public space to influence the sculptural form and become its new stage.
STAGED? (2016) - undressed is commissioned by Lower Manhattan Cultural Council for the 16th Annual River To River Festival.
