Open: 03/29/20- Close: 03/29/20 LedaLeda
LedaLeda is a funeral oration, an enacted eulogy, for the artist’s late sister, Leda Papenfusscline. Following an imagined connection with a dead sibling, this play offers many approaches to death, minimizing the power of narrative in favor of repeated ritual and honest reflection. In an attempt to make art that goes beyond “therapy theatre,” the artists interweave death with story and memory, working through ancient myth, humor, pop culture, personal experience, and spiritualism. Time, like grief, is not a linear process. Humans have desperately mythologized their experience for centuries in order to avoid realizing there may be no sense at all in the cycles of violence that surround us. Death lacks remedy: there is nothing to learn.

Open: 03/23/20- Close: 03/29/20 UNCLE BOB
A seldom-produced controversial love story between an HIV-positive recluse and his homophobic nephew, Josh, who is desperate for his uncle’s validation.  Uncle Bob lives in New York as an uproariously articulate hermit, separated from the wife to whom he is devoted - and who is devoted to him. He is visited by his uninvited nephew, who is without a job, without a completed college education, and without any sense of a future, all of which he faces with a wit and nervy desperation that finds its only match in his Uncle Bob.  A loving and funny, abrasive and profane face-off ensues.

Written by venerable playwright and performer Austin Pendleton, Uncle Bob stars Roger Banks and Shenendoah Thompson.

Works & Process, the performing arts series at the Guggenheim, presents the World Premiere of a Works & Process Commission, Les Ballet Afrik: New York is Burning by Omari Wiles, on Sunday and Monday, March 29 and 30, 2020 at 7:30pm.

 

In 1990, the documentary Paris is Burning was released to critical acclaim. The film chronicled New York City Drag Balls, Ball culture, and Voguing in the 1980s, capturing the elaborately structured Ball competitions and showcasing rival houses. Beyond the Ballroom, each house served as surrogate families for young Ball-walkers who faced rejection from their biological families for their gender expression and sexual orientation.
