In our latest live music experience at 255Canal, improvisation and spontaneity opened room to an evening of simultaneous experiences. The audience was absorbed by the intimacy of the space, Leah Seigel’s melodies and the tunes of Achilles Kallergis Quintet.
This special evening was once more triggered by LiYLR (Live in Your Living Room), a concept from the Netherlands that is now also based in NYC thanks to the collaboration of Kenichi Yoshioka.

Portuguese artist Rita Sá. ‘ Entangled’ features three distinct
projects involving painting and video that deal with various
changes on social interactions within these new environments. Separate experiences are reflected through different works: Vincent Parollo, Emo & Tick and Instances of Commediation.
