“All the world’s a stage, and all the men and women merely players; they have their exits and their entrances, and one man in his time plays many parts…” —As You Like It, Act II, Scene VII, by William Shakespeare.
A ballet dancer flits across the stage, while backstage, each performer waits for her cue. At a theater, the actors run lines in their dressing rooms and prepare their costumes. A storyteller in Australia passes down the stories of his ancestors around the fire. On a film set, the directors and crew work together to capture the nuances of the actors’ emotions and create a story. There is not one of us who has not been touched by the performing arts; whether by being part of it, or enjoying the stories and experiences that they produce.
The Art of Performance is an event that celebrates both the visual arts, and the performing arts. We will have a curated art exhibition of paintings that relate to the performing arts, and also a special 35 minute performance by actors from the Actor’s Lab drawing from material that deals with themes of visual arts. To find out more about the Actor’s Lab, click here. In this unique exchange we honor and give vibrance to both art forms.
There will be light refreshments for guests, and the event is free and open to the public!
The Art of Performance art exhibition will be held at the Actor’s Lab at 110 West Lancaster Ave, #150, Wayne, PA 19087 on Saturday, May 4, 2019 from 6 to 9pm. The performance by Actor’s Lab students will begin at 8pm. For the curated art exhibition, all artwork that deals with the performing arts such as dance, theater, film, spoken word, miming, or more, will be considered. We are still accepting submissions for this show. To submit your work, visit our “Call to Artists” page.
Curator for this exhibition is gallery director, Jessica Libor. Jessica received her MFA from the Pennsylvania Academy of Arts in 2014 and has been painting, exhibiting and curating since then.
