From March 31st through April 2nd, Abrons Arts Center will present the horror the horror (I have plenty of energy to drive over there), created and performed by Madeline Best, Shaun Irons, Lauren Petty, and Brian Rogers. In a review of the work, which premiered at the 2010 Movement Research Fall Festival, Gia Kourlas of The New York Times wrote, “It was another side of horror, American-style.”
the horror the horror is a fully improvised live sound and video performance spectacle. Seamlessly incorporating live and processed imagery, electronic and acoustic music, and audio sources ranging from Mel Gibson to Marlon Brando to Charlie Sheen’s recent tirades, the horror the horror will use multiple large scale video projections, surround sound, and the exposed proscenium of the Playhouse to spin a gothic meditation on American pop culture and the personal obsessions of madmen.
Tickets are $15 and available at Abrons Arts Center’s website. Tickets are selling fast, and are only available in the Playhouse balcony.
