THE CONEY ISLAND BUTOH & THEATRE FESTIVAL
Coney Island is famous for its historical exhibitions of "freaks, geeks and human curiosities" - both individual and collective; from the Lilliputian Village ("Midget City"), to the Filipino Igorot tribe that was transplanted from the Philippines to perform their rituals, to the ten-in-one circus sideshows.
For 3 evenings only - March 11-13 - International Culture Lab gathers an idiosyncratic "tribe" of butoh dancers, under the guidance of Mexican master teacher Diego Pinon, will explore this history through body rituals on Coney Island USA's Sideshows by the Seashore stage.
Featuring: Katherine Adamenko, Douglas Allen, Dean James Beckwith, Rosemary Candelario, Mary Catherine Donnelly, Rachel Finan, Nick Fracaro, Andy Kriger, Bob Lyness, Christopher Mankowski, Ieva Misevicuiute, Jennie Portney, Lillian Rossetti, Lauren Sky, Jacquelyn Shannon, Irene Siegel and Sierra Steplewski
