PASSAGE 2 NO(W)HERE at the House of Words. Thursday, May 10th offers a unique combination of live entertainment and visual arts curated by Nikki Ortiz, Françoise Voranger, Cameron Finley and Daisy Press of Hybrid Movement Company, staged throughout an extraordinary four-story contemporary art gallery setting. Guests will be met with a different hidden experience in every room… acrobatics, dance, music, visual arts, poetry, puppetry, light, and color, as they are guided by The Fool from basement to rooftop into an unexpected journey of the Self.
“Creativity… It questions, It dares to unveil. It’s in action even when It means risk. It infiltrates preconceptions effortlessly. It shatters certitudes, it invents, connects, and inspires, It sparks new dialogues, It provokes, It shifts vantage points, It experiments and expresses. It’s fool of potential. Curious?” – The Hybrid Movement Company
House of Words
This Spring extravaganza is going down at House of Words, a newly constructed text-art building in Bushwick, conceived by author Ariel De Lion. The property, which was originally created as a simple residential complex, has evolved into a compelling art and installation gallery, shifting blank architectural spaces into platforms of expression.
The four-story pop-up exhibition, curated by Art/Event Producer Jennifer Tone, features 24 international and local artists, and is infused with themes of sexual, emotional, and intellectual awakening. Guests are invited to harness a similar go-big-or-go-home approach in their attire, embracing the same Burning Man meets Renaissance level of creative liberation that is imbued throughout the House of Words.
Curated by Nikki Ortiz (in the picture), Françoise Voranger, Cameron Finley and Daisy Press of Hybrid Movement Company.
