Secondary Dominance, Small’s decade-long musical project-in-the-works, will premiere this January 2017 as a multi-disciplinary performance at HERE Art Center’s annual PROTOTYPE Festival. In 13 micro-movements, Small synthesizes genres from Balkan folk to contemporary chamber, industrial, renaissance, rock, rap, and punk, while interweaving live and recorded electronics, Chinese sheng, strings, winds, and densely packed vocals. Working in her signature Tableau Vivant form, the music is complemented by gestural choreography and projections, including the world premiere of Black Sea Hotel's first music video. Secondary Dominance is a unique multimedia experience that unfolds as lush living pictures rife with honesty and mistakes, ferocity and hilarity.

Friday, May 24th, 2013 – Brooklyn, NY
63 N. 3rd St, Brooklyn, NY 11211  -  7:00pm-11:00pm
Greek and Italian hors d’oeuvres by Mackenzie and wine and beer provided by Acme.
Suggested donation$5-$25. Proceeds will benefit the production of Black Sea Hotel’s new album and Tableau Vivant’s Global Tour.

On Friday May 24th Acme Studio and Sarah Small present “Balkan Incarnations,” an evening of music, film, photography and performance, an immersion into harmony and dissonance through contemporary embodiment of Balkan folk songs and ancient stories.

Included in the evening is a screening of Sarah Small’s Tableau Vivant of the Delirium Constructions, supplemented by Small’s photographic stills from The Delirium Constructions, as well as a sneak preview trailer of Director Josephine Decker’s experimental psychological thriller “Butter on the Latch."

The screenings will be prefaced by vocal performance by Black Sea Motel (an experimental off-shoot of Black Sea Hotel). Willa Roberts and Sarah Small will perform as a live duo while Corinna Snyder will appear projected like an apparition, on a pre-recorded track/video, interweaving the live and the virtual. Black Sea Motel will sing “Ibish Aga”, the Bulgarian song featured in the 2011 Tableau. Small and Roberts will also perform traditional and arranged Balkan a Cappella repertoire as a duo, including songs from their upcoming album.

Tableau Music is here! … on Black Sea Hotel's new album! … 

Ibish Aga (the folk song that ends with sustained "umre's" from Tableau 2011 
is included on Black Sea Hotel's brand New Full-Length Album. 

Here is a sneak peak preview of the unmixed/un-mastered track, so you can remember the "Ibish Aga" moment in Tableau.

For those of you more adventurous… there are a wide range of enticing incentives available… including songbooks and bloopers, but our personally favorite incentive is this: we will come to your house, cook you banitsa, shopska and other Bulgarian dinner and dessert treats; we will drink honey liquor with you; we will sing for you, laugh with you, exchange stories, then sing you to sleep with lullabies, after which we will come downstairs, clean your kitchen, leave you a present on the table, and quietly let ourselves out…
