Satellite Collective premieres 7 new works

Satellite Collective in New York CitySatellite Collective, a New York-based arts nonprofit founded in 2010, will present seven world premiere interdisciplinary works at the Brooklyn Academy of Music’s Fishman Space on September 3-5.


In its second season at BAM, Satellite Collective seeks to secure its role as a leading voice of interdisciplinary art in New York City. Created specifically for the Fishman Space, Satellite Collective’s September performances will employ the collaborative visions of 29 artists from across the nation. The evening will premiere post-classical music by four composers, ballet and modern dance works by three choreographers, a new animated set, two new short films, and a spoken work.


By turns jubilant, mournful, violent and tender, this diverse assemblage of artists and art forms will draw audiences through a spectrum of vibrant emotion. Damian Smith, a former principal of San Francisco Ballet, serves as the artistic advisor for the program.


The evenings include: I Can Help You, spoken word by Stelth Ulvang of The Lumineers; SOLO, a dance work by Devin Alberda of the New York City Ballet; A Pair of Ideal Landscapes, featuring dance and film by Esme Boyce and Lora Robertson, with a score by Richie Greene including harp and soprano; Water, a new cello composition by David Moss with soundscape by Richie Greene; Music for Dance, an earthy, dynamic music by the Satellite Ensemble; Edie Leaves Twice, a short film by Lora Robertson with score by Ellis Ludwig Leone of San Fermin, and libretto by Creative Director Kevin Draper; and Walled City, dance and multimedia by Manuel Vignoulle (formerly of Cedar Lake Contemporary Ballet), Kevin Draper, Brandon Stirling Baker and Nick Jaina.


Speaking of Satellite Collective, Siobhan Burke of The New York Times said, “These are people who know how to produce a show.”
