Add to Calendar 12-01-2012 04-02-2012 15 Performance Space 122 Coil Festival COIL is an annual winter festival featuring 11 premieres from critical US and international artists that kicks off on January 5, 2012. The presentations are socially engaged, visceral, and groundbreaking. The festival spans 25 days, with all genres of performance, and takes place in 8 different venues across NYC. About Temporary Distortion's Newyorkland: ?Seamless and gorgeous? a dreamy, poetic, abstracted and sometimes scary meditation.? ? The Stranger ?Newyorkland is a fascinating window into a cop?s often isolating experiences.? ? The Seattle Times ?A compelling, self-contained world from which it?s impossible to avert one?s eyes? an original and important evening of theater.? ? Crosscut Newyorkland is an intertextual assemblage, combining popular cop movies and TV police procedurals with first-person accounts from real-life police officers. Acclaimed director Kenneth Collins and prominent video artist William Cusick merge visual and performance art, documentary realism, cin�ma v�rit�, and pure fiction as they follow four police officers struggling with the high costs of working within the demanding, dangerous, and secretive society of the NYPD. Since its inception in 2002, Temporary Distortion has earned a reputation for pushing the boundaries of theater by staging unsettling, meditative performance in claustrophobic, box-like structures that feature minimal physical movement and a uniquely restrained acting style. The work is the last installment in a trilogy exploring iconic film genres as they are translated to the stage. Projected video is juxtaposed with live performance creating dreamlike double worlds that fracture traditional notions of narrative coherence and merge film, performance and visual art.
