WHERE: The Tavern Bar and Library at 217 Broadway (Above Pecks Arcade)
On (Troy Night Out) the Tavern Bar and Library at 217 Broadway will be home to a new art performance piece by C. Ryder Cooley.
Troy, New York: Ryder Cooley will bring her unique style back to Troy NY with a new piece of work that has not yet been performed in our region with the
exception of MOMA's PS1 in NYC. REVIVAL is a 20 minute live-cinema performance comprised of re-edited archival film, live music, recorded sound, projections,
shadows and movement. Wings of Desire meets 4-H club in this surreal dark satire about animal experimentation and disembodiment. Additionally, Ryder will
perform a selection of previous works from her vast repertoire.
Additionally, regional storyteller Richard Lovrich of Regrettable Lagniappe fame will be introducing each of the sets with a series of short story readings
topically appropriate to the evenings theme.
This show will be open to the public for a $5 suggested donation as a fundraiser for Ryders upcoming trip to San Francisco. Come for the performance and help
out for a good cause! Food and drinks will be available in the Tavern Bar over Pecks Arcade in addition to the attached Grocery and The Confectionery. Call
in advance for dinner reservations to Peck Arcade.
The show will be produced and hosted by Corey Aldrich of 2440 Design Studio.
