September 15 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Commissioned by Dixon Place, ALMODOVAR DYSTOPIA by the renowned downtown dance artist Antonio Ramos and his outrageous company The Gangbangers is part Latino-flavored tribute to the Spanish film director, part humorous celebration of the LGBT culture, and part a bold political statement against the body-negative and repressed nature of the world we live in. This work, inspired by Pedro Almodovar’s flamboyant cinema, will play a limited engagement for six performances only, opening on Friday, September 15th and running every Friday and Saturday through September 30th. Featuring video, movement, spoken word and gourmet surprise, the piece makes its case for the affirmation of all things physical through Ramos’ trademark chaotic and joyful storytelling style. Parental guidance strongly cautioned.
Tickets are $21 in advance, $24 at the door, $18 students / seniors / ID NYC and can be purchased by visiting http://dixonplace.org/performances/almodovar-dystopia/ or by calling (866)-811-4111.
