UNFIX NYC 2016 (April 29-May1)
UNFIX NYC is a new festival of Performance and Ecology taking place at Grace & St. Paul Church on April 29-May 1 2016, presented by Ren Gyo Soh. UNFIX Festival started in Glasgow (Scotland) in 2015, created by performance artist and Butoh dancer Paul Michael Henry (www.unfixfestival.com), and Ren Gyo Soh is excited to bring it to New York as their 2nd anniversary celebration and fundraising event.
UNFIX is a multi-art form event fusing live performance, dance, installation, workshops and debate in a bid to unravel the knots in how we're living. Ecological crisis and renewal addressed through our bodies and physical sense of being alive.
This New York City version is the first collaboration between UNFIX and Ren Gyo Soh, which the two groups hope to make an annual event. We want to simultaneously celebrate and question our relationship to each other, to the planet on which we live, to our own imaginations and the structures that mould us in this time of ecological crisis.
This year Ren Gyo Soh, a Butoh-based theatre company in NYC celebrates its 2nd anniversary, and is using the opportunity to present UNFIX as a bridge between performance and ecology (or artists and the Earth on which they work). Our program will include live performances, installations, workshops, and yoga with live music.
*UNFIX NYC is presented by Ren Gyo Soh, sponsored by The Ume Group and Grace & St. Paul Church.
