Laleh Khorramian is a visual artist based in upstate New York. Animation, digital media and found footage supplements use of traditional artistic media in her practice, like collage, mono-typing and drawing. In a vacillating process between them, Khorramian integrates fiction with spectacle and theatre constructions to explore the discarded and chance outcomes as a creative strategy.

Saturday, May 3, 8pm – Performing Arts Center
Michael Feinstein’s The Gershwins and Me
For Tickets call: 914-251-6200
In Michael Feinstein’s club acts in New York City and throughout the world this most-celebrated of male cabaret artists has been acclaimed for his explorations of songs popularized by Sinatra as well as the great composers of the American Songbook. But his performance explorations of the Gershwins have not been equaled by any other artist performing today, or yesterday, or quite likely tomorrow.

Sunday, May 4, 3pm – Performing Arts Center
Aspen Santa Fe Ballet
For Tickets call: 914-251-6200
This is one of the great up-and-coming touring companies, and chances are you will be treated to choreography you have never seen before. They are known for innovation and new works, and their performances are rooted in the athleticism of contemporary dance. Based in two homes, Aspen and Santa Fe, this troupe has no in-house choreographer and instead relies on the work of often little-known dance-makers.
