The Sundance Kid is Beautiful with Christopher Knowles features the artist performing a selection of rarely-shown works, including The Sundance Kid is Beautiful and texts from Einstein on the Beach in a multimedia environment that incorporates recent poetry and sculpture.

The performance combines elements of a theatrical vocabulary with Knowles’s delicately patterned texts to create a scenography that extends the structured logic observed throughout his two and three-dimensional practice into a performative domain.

This very special event, which makes its New York premiere after opening at the Louvre as part of Living Rooms, is made possible by the support of Whitebox Art Center. It is staged by Noah Khoshbin and produced by Andrew Gilchrist, with dramaturgy by Lauren DiGiulio, art direction by Eugene Tsai, lighting design by John Torres,audio direction by Bryce Kretschmann, and set construction by Stephen Crawford.

Originally commissioned by The Martin E. Segal Theatre Center at The Graduate Center, CUNY, it is presented in collaboration with The Watermill Center, the American Friends of the Louvre,  Gavin Brown’s Enterprise, with additional support from The Segal Center, Change Performing Arts, and Dissident Industries.

Presented as part of Performa 13. Tickets available at www.performa-arts.org
