Highlights: Abrons Arts Center Fall 2009

FISICOFOLLIA
A Performa 09 Presentation
November 5 | 8 pm
Taking its title from the 1913 Futurist manifesto Del Teatro di Varietà (The Theater of Variety), Fisicofollia re-imagines the theatrical atmosphere of the notoriously wild “Futurist evenings” from the viewpoint of cutting-edge contemporary Italian artists.

The History of the Future II
November 6 & 7 | 8 pm
Franklin Furnace, the indispensable presenter, preserver, and proselytizer of the avant-garde, goes back to the future with The History of the Future II, two evenings of archival videos of groundbreaking work interspersed with contemporary and reconstructed performance.

Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster & Ari Benjamin Meyers: K.62
A Performa 09 Commission
November 18 & 19
Inspired by Orson Welles’ unforgettable film version of The Trial (1962), K.62 is a musical mystery that involves an audience, an orchestra, a little bit of magic, and a lot of imagination. In this dark comedy of missed connections, visual artist Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster and composer and performer Ari Benjamin Meyers collaborate in a new performance that celebrates the angst and anxiety, courage and vision of downtown New York.

Banana Bag & Bodice: Sandwich
December 2-22 | 8 pm
The creators of the last spring’s critically acclaimed Beowulf: A Thousand Years Of Baggage return to the Abrons with Sandwich, a surreal Christmas cabaret – about eating meat. “Stab whom you have to for a ticket.” Time Out New York.

Justin Bond’s Christmas Spells
December 9-12 | 8 pm
Tony-nominated performance artist Justin Bond returns to the Abrons to work his holiday magic. Performing new songs and old favorites, Justin and his special guests will bring a phantasmagorical blend of cunning Christmas camp and searing seasonal sorcery.
