The Transmodern Festival presents FOUR days of radical, experimental, expectation-defying work from local, national and international artists!
Opening event on Thursday is F.E.A.S.T. (food entertaining as specious theatre). F.E.A.S.T. is a culinary performance, taking place in the back of Current Space on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights between 7:30 and 10:30pm. This performative regalement has limited seating for an unlimited superlative aural, visual and palatable experience.
On both Friday and Saturday nights Tyson Alley will host Alley Ooooops an array of projections, performances by Bethany Dinsick, Meg Rorison, Omar MrOz, Melissa Webb, Sam Shea, Graham Coreil-Allen and many more throughout the night to enliven this beautiful corridor between Franklin St. and Saratoga St..
On Friday evening at 8:30 the Effervescent Collective will perform with Micky Free at 218 W. Saratoga St. at D:Center@MAP , and Friday night at 9pm, The 14Karat Cabaret presents The Body X-tended featuring an evening of the uncanny garment, the absurd wearable and the performing object. Artists include Eric F. Avery, The Dandy Vagabonds, Lurch and Holler, Ginny Duncan, Naomi Davidoff, Ada Pinkston, John Flowers among others. At 11:30pm expect The Body Pageant, a prosthetic procession and fashion extravaganza moving from The14KT Cabaret up the Alley to the Current Space Back Lot! On Saturday, all night from 8pm-midnight at The 14Karat Cabaret is The Quiet Show where language artists such as Lauren Bender, Adam Robinson and Bob O’Brien coo to you through headphones.
