[DOH-BREE DEHN] First Thursday

& TRANSIT by ELEANOR DUBINSKY

 

 

December 1, 6:30 PM

at the CZECH CENTER NEW YORK

[DOH-BREE DEHN] First Thursday: Series of open and informal meetings with themed discussions. The goal is to provide an opportunity for exchanging ideas and enjoying the company of people with a shared interest in the Czech Republic. Expats and all friends of the Czech Republic are welcome. Organized by the Czech Center New York on the first Thursday of each month.

 

TRANSIT is a site-specific dance, video and sound performance created by dancer, choreographer and interdisciplinary artist Eleanor Dubinsky that will transform the Czech Center gallery into a video landscape of large, simultaneous projections of people in transit throughout cities such as Prague, Paris, Havana, Buenos Aires and New York. Dubinsky will perform solo music and dance improvisations on the spot, mixing with sounds of subway and train stations, airports and airplanes worldwide.

The first version of TRANSIT was created in 2004 in the main train station of Tabor, Czech Republic.  The second took place in a window gallery on West 37th Street in Manhattan in November 2005.

 

 

Artist Biography:

 

Eleanor Dubinsky is a multidisciplinary artist whose work explores the boundaries and intersections of nation, person and place. Her large-scale video, sound and performance works create the experience of travel and a sense of immersion in the unfamiliar while encouraging audiences find some connection to the unknown and to one another.  Dubinsky believes art offers opportunities for self-expression and the co-mingling of multiple perspectives and wants to engage audience members in a sense of wonder, questioning and creativity about their everyday lives. To this end, she has rehearsed and performed in train stations, public parks, beaches and other public spaces throughout the world and invites non art-going audiences to share in both her process and performances. Dubinsky graduated from Brown University in 1998 with a BA in Educational Studies focusing on art and social change. She has lived and worked extensively in Western and Central Europe, particularly in the Czech Republic. She speaks Czech, French, Spanish and Italian and is international in her life and in her work.
