Artmosphere” is a display, a live piece of art, a simultaneous participation of several disciplines with the involvement of the visual arts in a dynamic way. What sparked the initial thought was the idea that visual artists never get a chance to perform live. This concept then began to evolve into a collaborative show featuring music, dance and poetry as well as visual artand a performance was born.
The audience will feel the air as the dancers whiz right by them, and they too will share the stage for this show. In this way, the sensory experience will surround the audience. Elliott Sroka, Executive Director of Tilles Center, and Dr. Cara Gargano. Chair of the C.W. Post Department of Theater Film and Dance, both embraced the idea for it’s unique and groundbreaking approach to theater. And from this a show was born. “I can’t believe we are actually going to perform this piece of artwork, LIVE ! I have been searching for something similar to “Artmosphere” and there seems to be nothing else that combines all of these elements in one live performance.” Kasimakis said,” When we first thought about doing this it was totally conceptual. But, when we actually got the go ahead, it became very real and serious indeed. Weall needed to bring it to from a thought to the stage!”
The list of performers in “Artmosphere” span Long Island from north to south and east to west. Artists Andrew Leipzig from Sayville, Alan Semerdjian from Huntington, Laurette Kovary from East Norwich, composers Jane Leslie of Long Beach, Jay Jii from Northport and Joe Satriani, San Francisco by way of Carle Place, demonstrate the reach of this project and its focus, Long Island creativity. “Our dancers and musicians come fromBrooklyn, Queens, Nassau and Suffolk, even though some claim that the first two are not really Long Island, they seem to be attached on the map I have.” laughed Goida “This show is a collaboration of many talented individuals and we would like to invite you to become a part of “Artmosphere”. With only 200 seats available for each performance, this is that rare opportunity to be part of theater history.”
