Cowboy and American Playground by Niv Sheinfeld & Oren Laor

November 3, 2016

American Playground, a new work by Niv Sheinfeld and Oren Laor with CORE Performance Company, dives into the essence of contemporary performance, challenging the distinction between high art and popular culture, between performance and casual behavior, and between public and private spaces.

It’s a playful and mischievous journey which questions the need for structure and narrative.

American Playground investigates multiple themes including “body as resistance,” personal authenticity and the dialogue between public and private spaces. Approximately one hour in length, the work is an active collaboration between the choreographers and the dancers, and is structured with a blend of pre-determined movement and improvised movement. The work evokes both humor and pathos, as the dancers explore the themes in partnership with one another and through the manipulation of props and costume pieces. Sheinfeld and Laor seek to coax complete authentic presence from the performers through the themes and formal structure, leaving a deeply-felt impact upon the audience.
