PASS: Performing Arts Salon Saturdays

PASS is a curated performance series that takes place on the last Saturday of every month at Snug Harbor’s Newhouse Center for Contemporary Art.

The salon’s focus is on original works in performing arts (music, dance, theater, and multi-media) in different stages of development.  When possible, work is developed in residence at Snug Harbor, which serves as an incubation lab.  Each PASS has a pre-performance reception and a post-performance artist talk moderated by an expert in the field.  The 2016-2017 PASS season is curated by Gabri Christa.

Poet, activist, and former NYC Youth Poet Laureate Ramya Ramana returns to Snug Harbor for a thought-provoking new performance: The Color of Crucifixion. With collaborators Steven Willis and Marc Beard on piano/vocals, this multi-faceted performance will feature poetry followed by music and narration.

The Color of Crucifixion challenges the racial identity of Jesus through a collective of narrative performances that depict him as a friend of the oppressed. This show confronts American church culture and the westernized notions of depicting God.

Steven Willis, narration

Marc Beard, piano/vocals

This event is made possible in part by a DCA Art Fund Grant from Staten Island Arts, with public funding from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs. The 2016-2017 PASS series is curated by Gabri Christa.
