Office of Illegals Jan 17
Posted January 9, 2018
Dream on, bad hombres! You're about to have your door kicked in. Beware, illegal people! Imperial orders have been signed and you’re about to be extremely vetted. A pack of bouffon misfits ridicule the road to citizenship in Office of Illegals. Immigration just got freaky.

Featuring Lynn Berg, Jack Elias, Karen Elias, Clara Francesca, Joe Galan, Kim Kaiser, Roy Koshy, Timothy McCown Reynolds, and Donetta Riley

A split bill with Person[ing] from The Organism that Persons.

Using borrowed text, song, and movement, The Organism that Persons seeks to create new worlds from old ones and offer new perspectives on what it means to be a person. This first installation of Person[ing] borrows from the 1971 documentary A Lady Called Camille, the book Architectural Body (Gins & Arkawa), and a variety of musical samplings. This non-narrative piece draws from classical and postmodern dance, bouffon (clown), vocal arts, and drag performance.

Devised and performed by: The Organism that Persons
Projections: Jake Nathanson, Jordan Ross, Chris Rehmann

The Organism that Persons is a persona of Chris Rehmann, Brooklyn-based artist and educator. Originally from Mississippi, Chris studied in the Experimental Theater Wing at NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts. Since graduating Chris has performed at La MaMa, Dixon Place, The New York International Fringe Festival/The C.O.W., Daniel’s Spectrum (Toronto), and Pig Iron.
