Jonathan Capdevielle
Adishatz / Adieu

Through formative teenage years spent learning to imitate pop icons like Madonna and singing the greatest hits from the 1980s, Adishatz / Adieu is a self-portrait of a performer; a collection of songs that wander between real life and fantasy.

Moving between music and conversation, memories of childhood are conjured alongside a past that continues to inform his shifting identity. On a journey to capture the personas of others, he strives to discover the most truthful version of himself. Sung a cappella, Adishatz / Adieu aims to study of the vulnerability of adolescence.

“With irony, perversion and off-kilter humor…. his mastery of the stage, his body, and his voice is phenomenal. A rare bird, indeed.” — Le Devoir

American Realness is a festival of dance and performance founded by tbspMGMT in partnership with the Abrons Arts Center.

Abrons Arts Center, located in Manhattan’s Lower East Side, is accessible by the F subway line to Delancey Street or the J/M/Z subway lines to Essex Street. This neighborhood is perhaps best known as once being a center of Jewish culture in the city, which is embodied in the famous Katz’s Delicatessen at 205 East Houston Street. The Lower East Side is also known for its numerous contemporary art galleries and its thriving nightlife.

 

Some staff picks for great restaurants in the area are Benson’s NYC at 181 Essex Street and dirtcandy at 86 Allen Street. Also, the Clinton Street restaurant row sits just west of Abrons Arts Center and is complete with pizzerias, tapas restaurants and local bars.
