“Arts On Site began showcasing artists in 2016 at 12 Saint Marks Place,” said Chelsea Ainsworth, Executive Director of Arts On Site. “After 350 shows throughout the pandemic, AOS decided to build a new performance space, Studio 3R, in May 2021 and began presenting artists in June. The space includes the installation of new black curtains , professional lighting, marley flooring and risers for audience seating. We are thrilled to offer artists a new intimate and professional performance space in New York City.”
THE BANG GROUP is a contemporary theatrical dance troupe dedicated to choreographer David Parker’s fascination with the rhythmic potential of the dancing body. Central to his work is an abiding love of rhythmic form and the intensity of communication it allows between audience and performers. Among his best-known works are the 21st century neo-vaudeville Nutcracker called Nut/Cracked as well as ShowDown, a choreographic reimagining of Annie Get Your Gun for the cabaret and concert stages, and a series of male duets ranging from Slapstuck for two velcro-clad gentlemen, to Bang and Suck, Friends of Dorothy, The Missing Reel and Old Fashioned Wedding. These dances were created for Jeffrey Kazin and David Parker who now lead the company together by building a choreographic dialogue between show business, classical and contemporary dance traditions. Their most recent work, the Misters and Sisters evening is a pure song-and-dance cabaret that received critical acclaim when it premiered at Joe’s Pub at the Public Theatre.
About the Arts on site
Arts On Site is a women-led, non-profit arts organization dedicated to providing artists with opportunities to create and perform new work. Arts On Site began as an event to showcase artists. The event was an initiative of professional artists Chelsea Ainsworth, Kyle Netzeband and Adrian Rosas, to connect artists from multiple art forms. As the event grew, a diverse community of artists developed and the concept of Arts On Site was born. For more information, visit artsonsite.org.
