AGA For the Whole Family



On Sunday October 16 get ready for eight minute bursts of the weird, bizarre, out-there performances that made PS 122 and AVANT-GARDE-ARAMA famous but this time there’s a twist. Every performace is either by, for, or about kids! So load up the mini-van (6 train) and don’t forget the kids- or grownups who act like kids- and come on down to the East Village for an afternoon of fun and performance for the whole Avant-Garde-A-Family.

Sunday, October 16
will include dance from the Young Dance Collective and Magma – the junior company of Sarah East Johnson’s Lava; theater from the students of the Wooster Group Summer Institute; found-object puppetry -and a short puppet workshop – from Searls Puppetry as well as music from Lucian Buscemi’s band Stungun.

For a sneak preview of what’s in store, tune into CBS at 12.15 this Friday
