UNTITLED_I will be there when you die
New York Premiere
Thu, Sep 28-Sat, Sep 30
Choreographer Alessandro Sciarroni returns to Crossing the Line Festival with the second part of his Will you still love me tomorrow? trilogy. In this contemplative work on the passage of time, four jugglers start nonchalantly tossing pins, building to a thrilling spectacle while Pablo Esbert Lilienfeld DJs live.
This new performance embodies the drama and artistry of the juggler’s struggle—against gravity, against their weary bodies, against the potential for failure in every toss.

About the Artist
Alessandro Sciarroni creates visceral, visual, high-endurance work, somewhere between dance, performance art, and ritual. Taking simple, repetitive choreography to its extremes, he pushes dancers to their physical limits to uncover obsession, fear, and vulnerability. Sciarroni’s works have been performed in his native Italy and all over the world at festivals and venues including the Festival D’Automne (Paris), TBA Festival (Portland), and the Walker Art Center (Minneapolis). He last appeared at Crossing the Line Festival in 2015 with Folk-s, will you still love me tomorrow?, the first work in his Will you still love me tomorrow trilogy.
