A Night of Neo Benshi
Curated by The Flow Chart Foundation, featuring:
Davon, Brandon Downing, Michael Gottlieb, Aristilde Paz Justine Kirby, Jeffrey Lependorf,
Stephin Merritt, Marianne Shaneen, and Edwin Torres.
The Flow Chart Foundation, dedicated to exploring the interrelationships of various art forms as guided by the legacy of John Ashbery, returns with a new evening of one-of-a-kind neo-benshi fun. Neo-benshi gives poets and performers the opportunity to remove the dialogue from movie clips and replace it with their own—singing, dancing, reading right out loud in front of the screen!
Join us for re-invented versions of cult favorites like North by Northwest, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, Gilda and Sissy Boy Slap Party.
