Jody Oberfelder Projects, known for their immersive dance experiences of inventive athleticism, wit, and whimsy, presents Amphitheater at East River Park Amphitheater, June 21st, 2021, at 6:30pm. A joyous world premiere to challenge the pending demolition of the 50-acre park that transformed Lower Manhattan more than 80-years ago, the in-person, outdoor dance performance will feature live music composed by trumpeter and founder of the Klezmatics, Frank London, accompanied with his unique brass and percussion ensemble and a cast of 4 dancers. Performed on the summer solstice, the longest day of the year, the premiere is also one of the many events around the world for Fête de la Musique and MAKE MUSIC NY, a global festival to encourage free live music and art to fill public spaces. Additionally, the program will open with a poem by Eileen Myles.

The continuation of Oberfelder and London’s collaboration will be showcased at Roulette this October, as part of their project Rube G, both an animated  film work, and live piece for five dancers is tribute to Rube Goldberg, the object artist and inventor.
