The New Stage Theatre Company updates Arrabal's tale of Lais' dazzling and bizarre journey in this mesmeric production directed by Ildiko Nemeth, with video projection designers Laia Cabrera and Isabelle Duverger. Through a carefully crafted imaginary, the play depict some of the ways that today's culture - celebrity-obsessed to an unprecedented degree - and the preponderance of certain primal behaviors within that culture, may inform the audience's interpretation of Arrabal's premise.

PIKOLINOS POP UP STORE IN NYC, a 2-floor video mapping installation

On a landmark building at 32 Gansevoort street, the Spanish shoe brand PIKOLINOS has opened its doors to their first store in USA, designed by the multidisciplinary NY-based branding studio MERRY+VALENZUELA. The team formed by the founders of the company Laura Valenzuela and Bea Merry, the Interior Designer Alex Perinat, and Video Artists and Installation Maker Laia Cabrera and Isabelle Duverger, has created a wonderful mediterranean-infused space in the heart of the Meatpacking District.
Upstairs a video installation based on the three collections: the Maasai collection, the Colors collection and the fantastic Spring/Summer shoe and bag collection. Downstairs in the store cellar, check out the "Maasai Lab": video installations highlighting Maasai culture and the company’s commitment to cutting-edge technology, innovation, continuous evolution and a forward-looking vision.
The "Maasai Lab in the Cellar" was conceived as a sensorial and multimedia experience for all audiences to discover the Maasai culture and promote creativity. Through sounds, video, textiles, objects and interaction, you will be able to explore, understand, feel and experience the landscapes of Kenya, the beauty of its fashion, the work of these women and the significant involvement of Pikolinos with the non profit ADCAM, which allows the Maasai women to sustain their entire community.
Open from April 16, 2013 to January 31, 2014
