Tyson vs. Ali, House of Dance and Bronx Gothic Will Be Featured in Coil 2014 Festival
05 Nov 2013
Performance Space 122's contemporary festival, Coil, has announced its lineup. The festival, which will begin Jan. 3, 2014, and continue through Jan. 19, will be held at multiple venues throughout New York CIty.
Coil will feature five theatre productions: Tyson vs. Ali, Muazzez, An Evening with William Shatner Asterisk, House of Dance and Have I No Mouth. Three dance works will also be presented: a quartet, Bronx Gothic and The Angola Project.
The festival will also feature the 10th anniversary of Catch, described in press notes as a "multi-disciplinary, rough-and-ready performance series," and the Red + White Party with sounds by Elevator Repair Service.
Late-night programming at The Lounge at the Public Theater will be announced at a later date.
"For this year's Coil Festival, we turn our gaze inward by focusing on our own — New York City artists working on very intimate, personal stories of who and why we are," Performance Space 122 artistic director Vallejo Gantner said in a statement. "Coil14's artists are re-imagining how we tell these stories — with traditional forms juxtaposed against new and remarkable combinations of song, movement, fight and sound."
Most tickets will go on sale Nov. 12 and may be purchased by calling (212) 352-3101 or visiting ps122.org.
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
