Registration Closed
Event Date: 
Saturday, June 15, 2019 - 7:30pm to 9:30pm
Event Location: 

Studio Y at Gibney Dance | 280 Broadway (Main entrance: 53A Chambers Street) New York, NY 10007

Join us for an evening supporting artistic experimentation and creative risk! For this year's Fielday, we've invited six early to mid-career artists of The Field to share 10-minute excerpts of work in various stages of progress. Through dance, theatre, and standup comedy, these artists will take us on a journey from rebirth to rehab, antifascism and the American dream, and service industries on both sides of the law. 

Tickets include general admission seating and our post-show reception.

Gina Stevensen: My Name is Waitress

 "Your waitress will do all she can to please you. She just can’t seem to figure out the rules. A solo play about a woman’s relationship to food, shame, and the service industry."

Maylin Castro: The Names 

"Martina Visconti, a Jewish opera star, decides to remain in German-occupied Milan during World War II in hopes of protecting her impetuous younger sister, Giulia, who has joined the Resistance. She must make the ultimate sacrifice in attempting to save her sister’s life."

Nicky Sunshine: Confessions of a Massage Parlor Madam

"Nicky Sunshine stumbled upon a hustle in NYC's dangerous underground sex economy that put her at odds with the law... This show shines a light on the disproportionate number of women of color impacted by human trafficking, the dangers of sex work, and the call to 'Never Give Up on Your Hopes and Your Dreams'."

Rourou Ye: The Tangible Hallucination of Rourou in the Day-Time 

"(This piece) juxtaposes theatricality with somatic dance movement to abstract everyday life. The overall structure imagines an average day in NYC. I enter into my relationship and conversation with a suitcase, large-scale Jenga blocks, and masking tape to build a world to convey my story as a dream pursuer in a foreign country." 

Stick around after the show for a feedback session with wine!
