Performance Space 122 at the Spiegeltent
Hey All Y’all –
Sorry not to be writing more. Things around culturebot central have been really busy. Among other things, Culturebot has been programming the P.S.122 Summer Season at Spiegeltent and it has been NUTS!
For those of you who don’t know, The Spiegel Tent is “The World’s Most Beautiful Traveling Venue” and it is a ton o’ fun. Culturebot went to the Tent last summer in Edinburgh and had many a rousing and raucous evening of entertainment and libation.
I’m really excited about the Performance Space 122 Summer Season at Spiegel Tent – it is a bunch of Mondays, so it is for the real hardcore arts and entertainment crowd (i.e.: new yorkers). You can keep the weekend going just a little bit longer, enjoy some beer in the beer garden and see some awesome shows.
The final line-ups of some of the events are still being finalized, but here’s the basic overview:
August 7th at 8PM One Ring Zero, featuring writers Ned Vizzini, Mike Daisey & Clay McLeod Chapman (more writers TBC) as well as a special preview screening of the One Ring Zero documentary As Smart As They Are
August 14th at 10PM Chicks & Giggles fierce alternative all-women comedy variety show (line-up TBC)brought to you by Nichelle Stephens and Carolyn Castiglia. (Two of my favorite comedic blog-pals and both previous performers at The WYSIWYG Talent Show!)
August 21st at 8PM An evening of Tango and Milonga with Leonardo Suarez Paz and Cuartetango String Quartet to benefit P.S.122’s Buenos Aires in Translation Project. (this one’s going to be hot!)
August 28th at 10PM John Morans new music/installation performance Zenith 5.
"One of the most important (and underrated) figures in the avantgarde." – TimeOut NY
"Like so many modern choreographers – Merce Cunningham, Twyla Tharp, Mark Morris – he is far and away his own best performer… engaging, sexy and scary." – The New York Times
‘ZENITH 5’ is Composed/Directed by John Moran. Featuring Katherine Brook, Joseph Keckler, and an ensemble-cast of animatronic figures. The audience is invited to enter and re-enter at will, into this constantly evolving work of environmental music/theater. Sit back, chat with friends, have a drink, and contemplate Moran’s first feature length work since returning from Paris.
P.S.122 Summer Season at Spiegeltent is going to be great and I hope you will join us for one or all of these fantastic evenings!!
