Jules Gimbrone/ARIA ORION Performing WREST live at University Settlement May 8, 2010
WREST began in the fall of 2009 as a collaboration between composer JULES GIMBRONE, filmmaker ELLIOT MONTAGUE and choreographer JULES SKLOOT. After receiving a generous grant from the PRINCESS GRACE FOUNDATION and the BROOKLYN ARTS COUNCIL, the three artists performed WREST at The University Settlement Performance Project May 4th-6th 2010. Joining them on stage were 6 dancers, 7 musicians and 3 panels of film. After four sold out shows, the project went on hiatus due to medical reasons. In the fall of 2010, GIMBRONE and MONTAGUE decided to continue the project as a film and music collaboration.
