This May, photographer and artist, Sarah Small, is planning to produce the most ambitious performance of her career. Tableau Vivant of the Delirium Constructions will present a unique blend of art forms: theater, performance art, photography, fashion, and both classical and contemporary musical arrangements.
Photographer Sarah Small leads us on a revelatory journey through the interactive creative process and world-premiere of her most ambitious work. Inspired by history's striking French "living pictures", the Tableau Vivant is a revolutionary 120-model live performance installation that has evolved from Sarah's internationally acclaimed photographic series. Through a diverse cast of 120 people from all walks of life, Small presents a microcosm of human experience and interaction that crosses gender, age, race, and class boundaries. With raw passion, unique humor, and relentless optimism, she navigates the intimate desires, paralyzing fears, bitter failures, and transcendent triumphs of her new born artistic family.
After experimenting with a series of smaller tableaux vivants ("living pictures") for the past two years, the May performance represents a culmination of her work and promises to be the cultural event of the season.
The performance on Monday, May 23rd and Tuesday, May 24th will be at the historic Williamsburg Savings Bank, now known as Skylight One Hanson, in Fort Greene, Brooklyn. Ages 21 and over please.
