Next week, award-winning visual artist Talya Chalef will begin her multi-year theater project, the first of five Port Cities performances around the globe. Opening night will take place under the sunset at Brooklyn’s Waterfront Museum Barge, employing video projections, sound installation, and live performance to explore 17th century Dutch trade routes and the flow of people and ideas they’ve carried through present day. Living and working in South Africa, Australia, Argentina, and now the States, Chalef is no stranger to travel, and her multidisciplinary, cross-continental theater of five “movements” as she calls them, journeys from New York to Jakarta, Cape Town, Amsterdam, and Perth. Her project ends this Saturday, April 23rd.
