One of the most important supporters of Central/Eastern European - US cultural exchanges, CEC Artslink is organising an evening of wildly diverse, cutting-edge contemporary theater, dance, music, spoken word, and post-genre performance.
Joining the other performers of the festival, Lucian Ban and Sam Newsome will present the Romanian-American Jazz Suite.
DJ Joro Boro and actor/puppeteer Vit Horejs will introduce Ivan Talijancic’s WaxFactory, Robert Black of Bang on a Can All-Stars, Yoshiko Chuma of the School of Hard Knocks, Polish vocalist Sylwia Gorak, playwright/actor Jim Neu, site-specific choreographer Ilya Belenkov (Russia), bombshell actress Dalia Micheleviciute (Lithuania), jazz saxophonist Viktor Toth (Hungary), dancer/choreographer Goran Bogdanovski (Slovenia), inimitable performance artist Frantisek Skala (Czech Republic), Siberian folk musicians German and Klavdia Khatylaev (Russia), and more.
This inspired celebration of diaspora and fusion marks the 15th anniversary of CEC ArtsLink’s eponymous program ArtsLink Awards, which provides unique opportunities for creative exchange for performing and visual artists and managers in the US and Central/Eastern Europe, Russia, Central Asia and the Caucasus.
Honoring the Artslink founders for their inspired vision and support, CEC Artslink will also host a Gala Celebration of the 15th anniversary of Artslink Awards on November 21, 2008.
