Lake of RED by Itai Zwecker & TRIBE
Brooklyn, New York, USA
“Lake of RED”—filmed at Sam Black’s Refuge Arts in Bedford-Stuyvesant Brooklyn—takes place inside a fragmented boxed space and is a poetic performance lens for projection, reflection, and resonance of the artist with the viewer and with himself.

TRIBE: TRIBE is a Brooklyn/NYC based arts collective dedicated to creating, developing and sharing original multidisciplinary art projects.

With artistic direction by Shamel Pitts (2020 Guggenheim Choreography Fellow), TRIBE was created in the end of 2019 with the dream to soon become a synonym of artistic experiences that connects gifted individuals in our present era to re-imagine and cultivate an alternative collective future.
