Agata Zubel in New York at Ferus Festival 2016

December 30, 2015

The festival features artists hailing from places ranging from Poland to Zimbabwe - including Nora Chipaumiré, Leo Genovese, David Krakauer, Kelsey Lu, Hafez Modirzadeh, Ashley Robicheaux, Kathleen Tagg, Shamar Watt, Jeffrey Zeigler, and award-winning Polish composer and vocalist Agata Zubel.

The third annual FERUS Festival comes for the first time to National Sawdust, the new Brooklyn arts space where VisionIntoArt (VIA), the festival's development branch, now makes its home. This four-day extravaganza of new music, dance, and visuals in six performances from January 14-17, offers a snapshot of the innovative interdisciplinary collaboration for which VIA and its founder, composer Paola Prestini, are so justly celebrated. New York magazine says of VIA "You couldn't ask for a better one-stop survey of what's happening in new music now."

Building on their workshop performance at the previous FERUS Festival in May 2015 at Pioneer Works, Agata Zubel, "one of Europe's most accomplished and internationally successful contemporary classical composers and vocalists" (New York Times), reunites with Avery Fisher Prize-winning cellist Jeffrey Zeigler, formerly of the Kronos Quartet, for a multimedia collaboration with performing artist and dance, theatre, and film choreographer Ashley "Robi" Robicheaux on Thursday, January 14, 2016.

VIA's 2016 Ferus Festival at National Sawdust is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in Partnership with the City Council. Agata Zubel is presented in partnership with the Polish Cultural Institute New York.
