Parenthesis Art Space and Brooklyn Brush Studios are excited to present Sophia Chizuco’s first solo project in NYC. Sophia has created a sight specific suspended sumi ink drawing on Chinese rice paper, measuring 130 feet long. The Artist uses a myriad of materials to arrive at planned and spontaneous mark making techniques to explore the central theme of “roots”.
The show opens with two performances in collaboration with dancer Lizzy Zevallos and musician jojoSOUL who will perform live sound. The performance will explore improvisational movement and sound while engaging the scale of the work on view and activating it’s negative space.
The party continues with an after party at Terra Firma where the Artist is showing “Flow” an egg shell chandelier along with a set of paintings. Come enjoy a specially curated sake drink inspired by Sophia Chizuco’s work.
Great night at the museum! Dancers, artists, speakers, poets, and sound artists collaborated live for the Brooklyn Performance Combine.
Thanks to all who joined us for all your support! Special thanks to Jason Andrew, Julia Gleich, and Norte Maar for your beautiful and continued artistic efforts. So proud to be a part of the collaborative, and always grateful for the inspiration.

Not so unlike the historic Theater Event #1 that took place at Black Mountain College during the summer of 1952, andNorte Maar’s own End of the World performance at English Kills, The Brooklyn Performance Combine Event unites all art forms in a fusion of poetry, sound, dance, and performance in a single cohesive 120-minute event. It will be epic.
A timer will start the countdown for the performance. Each artist will be programmed to begin and end at a time designated through chance operations within the 120-minute interval. At times a poet will be reading while a sound artist is performing. A dancer will enter, perform and depart. Sounds will overlap. There will be silence. Every aspect of the performance will be unrehearsed, live, spontaneous, and uninterrupted. Audiences can come and go as the event clock ticks out of time.
