Cathy Weis first began hosting performances at WeisAcres, her home studio, in 2003 when she started The Salon Series, a performance-based series in which she and other artists presented their work to small, invited audiences. After a decade of these intimate performances, Weis began to envision a program with a larger scope, a broader audience and a more diverse roster of events.
Drawing inspiration from the history of the 537 Broadway building and the impact of artists on the SoHo community, Cathy Weis Projects launched Sundays on Broadway in May 2014. This one-of-a-kind series of events is comprised of performances, film screenings, discussions, dinner parties and all manner of affairs on Sunday evenings. Claudia LaRocco writes in Artforum that “Sundays on Broadway is a treasure-trove series curated by Cathy Weis at WeisAcres, her loft in SoHo in one of those buildings still occupied by artists, like some sort of nature preserve.”
Each season brings together “some of the sharpest minds in downtown performance (to) toss ideas around” (New York Times), test out new material and discuss the inner dealings of their work and processes. Since its inception, Sundays on Broadway has presented the work of dozens of choreographers, filmmakers, performers, musicians and visual artists in the unique setting of WeisAcres. Robert Greskovic of the Wall Street Journal observes that “…while the atmosphere evokes New York in the 1970s, the artistry on view feels up to the minute.” Visit the calendar to see what is in store for the current season.
