Add to Calendar 13-11-2011 13-11-2011 15 THEM CD Release Party "[THEM] is poetic and disturbing, backed by the full force of its history without being diminished by it." - The New York Times (October 2010) The CD is comprised of the music and narration of THEM, a performance by Chris Cochrane, Dennis Cooper and Ishmael Houston-Jones originally presented in 1985 by Performance Space 122 and again in 2010 by PS122, the New Museum and tbspMGMT. On Sunday, November 13 Chris Cochrane, Dennis Cooper, Ishmael Houston-Jones will be joined by several dancers from the 2010 edition of THEM as well as musicians Kato Hideki, Richard Dworkin, Doug Wieselman to present excerpts of both the album and performance. Cochrane's music & Cooper's narration are raw and edgy, the perfect sonic description of the improvised, entangled struggle of bodies in this historic performance piece. "In 1985, as many of our friends and colleagues were dying of HIV/AIDS - still a new phenomenon at the time - we created a performance piece investigating how men interact with men. THEM combined Ishmael's dancing, Dennis's words, and my music into a work of bracing, collaborative art. The lives of our friends and community - the loss of their lives - grew to became part of the piece. The infamous final scene, in which Ishmael dances with a dead goat, became a symbol of what we were all going through: grappling and fighting with death every day." - Chris Cochrane Cochrane co-produced the album on John Zorn's Tzadik Label #7627 - Key Series with Kato Hideki. The CD unfolds in "real time," following the time frame and structure of the performance piece. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=97237 Le Poisson Rouge true DD/MM/YYYY
