On May 30 & 31, artHARLEM artist LuLu LoLo is performing with a group of artists
in a series of short performances in:

two multidisciplinary evenings of performance

How do you define uptown or downtown work? Is the idea grounded in geography? Community? Aesthetics? Are there uptown and downtown audiences? For eight weeks this spring we brought together a group of artists, five from 'uptown,' five from 'downtown,' to explore these questions while developing short works for performance.

Friday, May 30, 7:30pm
The Gatehouse at Harlem Stage
150 Convent Avenue (at West 135th Street)

Saturday, May 31, 7:30pm
