Bushwick Burlesque & Zoe Ziegfeld Present:
LIMITLESS: A Marina Abramovic Tribute
We are the creators of our own limits, and therefore we hold our own power to become without limitations.
We do a lot of fun and silly things with Bushwick Burlesque, but for this show, we are re-visiting an experiment. Rather than presenting another absurd cabaret for the Burlesque at the Beach series, we are experimenting with, and indulging in, our Artistic side. We intend to pay tribute to a Living Legend of Performance Art herself, Marina Abramovic.
Don't be fooled. This is no tongue-in-cheek send-up or roast, by any means. This will be a serious and sobering salon, despite it conspiring in a saloon and theater generally reserved for soirees of much sillier mirth. We intend to present a Critical Tribute to be added to the pantheon of conversations around art and its intrinsic value to society and reality at large. And in a larger scope, the entire evening is designed as a site-specific installation, with the stage show as only one of many components.
We've asked our performers to choose a piece Marina has created or presented, and re-imagine it via the lens of Absurdest Cabaret - to take on serious work, with a serious attitude and a serious intention, but also with the intention of "distortion of the mind".
