WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Between the Seas, the only festival in New York celebrating Mediterranean performance, returns to the Wild Project for its fourth year.
This year's highlights include a world premiere adaptation of Chuck Mee's Matisse's Self Portrait; new work by the choreographer Nejla Yatkin, and the return of Balletto di Sardegna with new provocative dance inspired by designer Elsa Schiaparelli.
Between the Seas is thrilled to offer a new program this year: 4x4: NYC meets the Med., a series of staged readings that pair American directors and actors with Mediterranean playwrights. All readings in 4x4 are free and open to the public.
This year's Artist In Focus is Elias Wakeem, also known as Madam Tayoush, whose visual artwork will be on display in the Wild Project gallery.
