2nd annual Coney Island Butoh & Beyond - Submitted by Gabriele Schafer

| $15.00
CIB&Blogo

Coney Island is famous for its historical exhibitions of living forms, from the human to the non-human… and beyond. Displaying everything from “freaks, geeks and human curiosities” to a bewildering assortment of captured and caged animals, the menagerie was central to the thrills of old Coney Island – and to its exploitation.

For 3 evenings only – March 31-April 2 – International Culture Lab (Gabriele Schafer, Co-Artistic Director) gathers an idiosyncratic “menagerie” of 17 Butoh performers who — under the guidance of Mexican master teacher Diego Piñón — will explore this history through body rituals on Coney Island USA’s Sideshows by the Seashore stage. Joined by a revue of burlesque, art, and musical acts beyond Butoh but exploring these central themes, each evening will be a unique extravaganza.

March 31 at 8pm
April 1 at 8pm
April 2 at 4pm
