So.. Who's Your DADA?!
Yes.. last night was the premier of The Wooster Group's DADA inspired performance at MOMA. Dutch, Hobbit, Dr. Quiz and I all managed to sober up enough, to leave our comfortable table at Estiatorio Milos to attend.
The show, which lasted about an hour, was filled with funny readings from the Dada Manifestso (by both Tzara, and Hugo Ball), live video, Dada poetry, music, and the occasional exploding audience chair. Which MAO was lucky enough to fall victim to...Ha Ha.. yes the joke was on me.. Yea.. everybody laughed..I become part of the show.. Wooster Group members Kate Valk, Scott Shepherd, and Ari Fliakos did a great job of warning the audience, but just wait till one of my lawyers get a hold of them! Grrrr!
Anyway...there are 2 more performances tonight and Saturday. If you get a chance to leave Chelsea and like Dada Art, it's well worth checking out. And be for warned.. stay away from those little black and white stools unless you really want to become part of their performance.
