David Yonge, “yellow boy,” November 2, 9:30 pm at Access
Yellow Diablo will face his largest and most exhausting opponent to date. A car. Equipped with microphones and his bare hands, Yellow Diablo will spend a through and aggresive 2 hours literally tearing apart his ultimate challenge. This sound performance will take place on the street outside of Access beginning at 9:30 pm.
Total Ass, Erin Stanley & Corin Sworn, October 14, 4:30 pm at Access
Giant food, genetically modified organisms, Beckett and Marx (that’s the brothers, not Karl) combine in fusion cooking’s maddest combo yet. Slapstick comedy is mutilated and disemboweled and now the organs are taking over. What happens when the costumes and props usurp the performative activity? It’s neither sculpture nor performance and the theatricality of the mix may make the performers eat humble pie.
