With The Wooster Group curating the latest installment of Avant-Garde-Arama! one can expect two evenings of performance shorts and a nightly party that will “simulate the effects of a finely graded hallucinogen on a hyper-intelligent brain” – Ben Brantley  The New York Times (on The Wooster Group). Each evening, of course, will be meta-framed by A.G.A! co-founder Salley May’s customary extravagant introduction and welcome.

Founded in 1976, The Wooster Group is an ensemble of artists who, under the direction of Elizabeth LeCompte, make work for theatre, dance, and media. The many young people who intern there and sometimes move into positions in the company have long been their lifeblood. They are often artists in their own right who go on to make their own work. The Wooster Group’s Booty Call Avant-Garde-Arama! will feature some of these folks, people who have been drawn to the Group and in some sense share its artistic spirit.
