As part of the 22nd Annual River To River Festival, the Seaport Museum is partnering with the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council to host 17 New York-based artists who will share performances, practices, and journeys through a performance lottery of one-on-one encounters.
Instead of reserving a ticket to see a particular artist’s work, audience members reserve a performance timeslot and upon arrival are paired with an artist for a performance by one artist for one audience member. The pairing will then travel to a nearby public space in the South Street Seaport Historic District to experience the performance.
Lotto Royale is presented by Lower Manhattan Cultural Council in partnership with the South Street Seaport Museum and the Goethe-Institut and with support from the Foreign Office of the Federal Republic of Germany, Dance Reflections by Van Cleef and Arpels, Wesleyan University Center for the Arts, and Movement Research.
