2nd annual Coney Island Butoh & Beyond - Submitted by Gabriele Schafer
March 31 @ 8:00 pm - April 2 @ 4:00 pm| $15.00
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.
