What is Performance and Time Arts?
A project of Contemporary Dance Theater, Performance and Time Arts (PTA) is Cincinnati’s longest-running performance art series showcasing new work in dance, music, theater, spoken-word and multi-media.
In the laboratory setting of the 1890s College Hill Town Hall, both seasoned and emerging artists are given the opportunity to share innovative work and experiments with Cincinnati audiences.
Cincinnati CityBeat says PTA “consistently brings together the city’s most eclectic and edgy batch of performing arts.”
This show will offer some of the most exciting experimental, avant garde, and contemporary art to be seen in Cincinnati. Please join us for an exciting and surprising evening.
Lisa Ampleman will read poems from her book Full Cry (NFSPS Press, 2013).
Ginger Castle was scheduled to perform for p.t.a. in October, but had to cancel after an automobile accident. We are excited to have her back for the March show.
Turkar Gasimzada will present “9 rubia,” a highly theatrical duet for flute and guitar, based on a traditional Persian verse form. The work will be performed by Nave Graham (flute) and Brian Sorenson (guitar).
Tricia Gelmini, from Yellow Springs, Ohio, is a long-time favorite of Cincinnati dance audiences from her performances for p.t.a. and for CDT’s Area Choreographers concerts.
Soprano Alexandra Kassouf will perform “Evening Star,” a song cycle based on Lisa Ampleman’s poetry, and composed by Sarah Hutchings, who currently lives and teaches in western New York.
Emily Scott, a fourth-year member of MamLuft&Co. Dance, will perform an original solo, inspired, in part, by her grandmother.
Poet F. Keith Wahle, who is also the organizer for this show, will perform “Now It Begins,” an experiment in “unperformance,” which he describes as theater that “eats its own tale.”
