COIL will run Jan. 5-17, 2016, at various locations throughout New York City.
Highlights of the festival include Dorsen's Yesterday Tomorrow. Beginning with the Beatles song "Yesterday," the director presents a concert that breaks down the music and gradually reconstructs it into "Tomorrow" from Annie. Performances will run Jan. 13-16 at La MaMa's Ellen Stewart Theater.
Chavkin presents a new work developed with U.K. performer Chris Thorpe titled Confirmation. The work draws from conversations with a right-wing leader in the U.K. and examines political discourse and "Confirmation Bias." Performances will run Jan. 13-17 at The Invisible Dog Art Center in Brooklyn.
The festival's slate of theatrical works will also feature a newly devised piece by Wooster Group and Elevator Repair Service regular Kaneza Schaal titled Go Forth, which blends performance and photo installation; Frank Boyd’s The Holler Sessions, an interactive experience featuring a Kansas City DJ and his love of jazz music; and various works featuring Australian artists thanks to the festival's cultural exchange program.
