Tomorrow is the unique chance to preview new work by Daniel Arsham, Harrison Atelier and Jonah Bokaer at their space for collaboration on the Hudson River.

Arsham will preview studies for his upcoming solo exhibition with Galerie Emmanuel Perrotin Miami scheduled to open during Art Basel/ Miami Beach 2010, and a selection from the ANCHISES (images of the rehearsals below) will be previewed.

, a collaboration between choreographer Jonah Bokaer and the design firm Harrison Atelier, gives visual and physical expression to the themes of aging, use and reuse of materials, and the role of space in determining the body’s range and potential. Featuring an inter-generational cast of five, ANCHISES stages new choreography by Bokaer in original stage designs by Harrison Atelier. The 70-minute work is set to a commissioned score by Loren Dempster, and performed by a multi-generational cast featuring Valda Setterfield, Meg Harper, Catherine Miller, James McGinn and Jonah Bokaer. With lighting by Aaron Copp and costumes by Christophe de Menil, the production receives its world premiere on October 6 in Bournemouth, UK at the newly opened Pavilion Dance, which commissioned the work and its US premiere in New York at the Henry Street Settlement’s Abrons Art Center on November 17. A selection from the ANCHISES will be previewed.

Bus from Union Square North at 2pm, opening at 4pm, performance at 5pm.

Drinks and hors d’oeuvres will be served!
