Avant-Garde-Arama Goes Clubbing

“Try as it may to maintain theatrical composure, [AGA] always ends up degenerating, or exploding, into an all-out party.”
-flavorpill.net

P.S. 122’s longest-running series (25 years) is an action-packed, eye-popping multi-disciplinary mini-festival that always culminates in a DJ dance party. The latest eruption of breakout dance, music, theatre, performance, video/film and more are presented in 8 minutes or less. The ever-popular “40-Second-Street” segment invites the audience to sign-up and present their own express performance contribution, be it prepared or made up on the spot.

Hosted by Hattie Hathaway and HapiPhace!

Curated by Club Curators of the past and the present along with Salley May, Joe E. Jeffries, Ande Whyland, Miss Joan Marie Moossy and Henry Baumgartner, this very special AGA is a celebration, remembrance and current snapshot of the vital role clubs played and play in the world of NY performance.
