One Catches Light Festival

Oye Group

at JACK

PERFORMANCES: January 19th, 20th, 21th, 25th, 26th, 27th


Oye Group presents the third annual One Catches Light Festival celebrating new solo work of five performers. In this year’s installment of the festival, each artist will address ‘Reparations’ as part of Oye Group’s collaboration with JACK’s year long performance series #Reparations365. Chelsea Dee Harrison channels international and infamous jewel thief Doris Payne in The Guide to Getting What's Yours. In One of You Is Fake, Beth Graczyk takes an earnestly absurdist look at the future of mankind in a part science lecture, part song, physical movement epic. A.B. Lugo explores the mystique behind what he calls “that most dangerous yet heavily sought after item: the BBC”. Kelvin Grullon brings to life Junot Diaz’s Pulitzer Prize-Winning novel The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao, and comedian/curator Neruda Williams delivers a night of laughs with In Addendum: Nigga, Please.
