synonymUS in FULL multimedia effect – tonight!
Dancers, Musicians, Poets and Artists of all walks welcome. Bring your own collab or work with US.
John Garretson is a graduate of Rowan University’s illustrious program for art education. When not creating his own work, John shares the art of expression in the classroom. He is currently aquiring his Masters at Columbia’s Teachers College. John’s work has been featured in many art shows, where he insists on pushing the form and his expression of it.
synonymUS celebrates its anniversary show at the Nuyorican by bringing Garretson’s work together with sound and word in a multimedia performance that promises to push our poets, musicians, and visual artists to a new understanding of narrative. Visual projections will offer an energetic touchstone with which the performers will explore form and content. Composed of all new original artwork inspired by the words of Jessica Elizabeth, Maria Nieves, Abena Koomson, Scot Lee Williams, Raymond Daniel Medina, and John Trause, this anniversary show promises to remind us how things can be a little different and still synonymUS.
