YBCA presents three intimate evenings of Edgar Arceneaux’s first live work, UNTIL, UNTIL, UNTIL….
Arceneaux created the piece as an investigation of and meditation on an infamous 1981 performance by Broadway legend Ben Vereen, televised nationally as part of Ronald Reagan’s inaugural celebration. The performance immerses the audience in the scenery of the presidential celebration, where the relationships between past and present, experience and memory, and fantasy and reality blur as they are filtered through time and the television screen. Frank Lawson stars as Ben Vereen. Winner of Performa’s Malcolm McLaren Award and praised in the New Yorker, Lawson’s performance in Until, Until, Until… has been popularly and critically acclaimed from New York to Boston to Los Angeles. (Performance run time: 60 minutes, no intermission)
Doors open at 7:15PM and the artist highly encourages guests to arrive at this time to participate in the pre-show gathering!
