Two Arrabalesques

Two Arrabalesques A Surrealist Café

The Bowery Poetry Club MAP
$15

The singular work of Paris-based Spanish filmmaker, playwright, poet, and artist Fernando Arrabal defies categorization, utilizing humor, shock, and confrontation while embracing excess, irrationality, and the grotesque. In a celebration of Arrabal’s provocative oeuvre, poet Todd Colby will MC two evenings of poetry, cabaret interventions, and impromptu performances at the Bowery Poetry Club. Drawing inspiration from Arrabal’s 1992 film Farewell Babylon!, in which a modern-day Nadja traverses the streets of New York in the chaos of the city, the evening will feature a collage of vibrant characters. Featuring interventions by Amanda Alfieri, Gage Boone, Todd Colby, item idem, Joseph Keckler, Irvin Climaco Morazan, Ariana Reines, and Jacolby Satterwhite.

Presented with Martin E. Segal Center, CUNY and Spain Culture New York-Consulate General of Spain. Curated by Marc Arthur and Charles Aubin.
