A collective of vocalists from different corners of the globe,
Asaran Earth Trio is a group dedicated to signing beautiful music from around the world. Asaran came together out of the desire to take different traditions in new directions, combining folk elements together with the adventure of group improvisation and each member's musical 'history'. Together they sing, clap, play percussion and are known to cause groups of strangers to laugh, cry, sing, dance and shake some groovy shakers. Asaran features
Anne Boccato from Brazil,
Artemisz Polonyi from Hungary and
Chiara Izzi from Italy.

Parcon is a collective of movers and dancers from the Contact Improvisation and Parkour scenes of New York. However, Parcon is more than a combination of the two forms from which it draws. It is a paradigm shift for movement arts, engaging the participants' kinesthetic attention to multiple dynamic relationships at once. Parcon has been practiced and performed in public space that anyone can have access to, including Washington Square Park, Thomas Jefferson Park, Long Island City waterfront, Hudson River Park, and the Highline among others.
