3. Open Rehearsals by 7 Daughters of Eve Thtr. & Perf. Co. and Sahra Motalebi at Watermill Center

Watermill Center offers a pair of Open Rehearsals on Saturday, February 20, 2016. Leading the evening is visual artist, composer and vocalist Sahra Motalebi presenting her open rehearsal from 6 to 7 p.m. Presenting from 7:30 to 8:30 p.m. is Sibyl Kempson’s performance company 7 Daughters of Eve Thtr. & Perf. Co. with Thomas Riccio (rescheduled from last week).

Sahra Motalebi will present Flesh, Format, a section of musical dialogue from Rendering What Remains, a 40 minute opera that includes multiple staged performances, video, sculpture installations and a novella. The semi-autobiographical piece explores the inner lives of two sisters living in dissimilar circumstances 100 years from now. The libretto is based on a year-long period of online communication between Motalebi and her sister living in Iran, to whom she bares a striking resemblance but has never met in person. Motalebi plays both herself and her sister and utilizes experimental musical structure, narrative chorus, and visual dramaturgy. Motalebi will present the work at National Sawdust in Brooklyn, NY on February 25, 2016 at 10 p.m.

12 Shouts to the Ten Forgotten Heavens is a performance immersion project that will be presented, as a finished production, at The Whitney. Beginning in March 2016, the piece will be presented in a series of one-day performances staged four times per year for the next three years. 7 Daughters of Eve Thtr & Perf. Co. unearths and contemplates - in contexts of live performance, ritual and installation - places in human history where science, religion, and feminism intersect.

Admission is free and space is limited. Registration is required and can be made by clicking here. Watermill Center is located at 39 Water Mill Towd Road Water Mill, NY 11976. www.watermillcenter.org.
