Locker 4173b

May 5, 2011 § Leave a comment

Locker 4173b is the name of the newest and just-0pened New York Neo-Futurists’ primetime show.   That means it’s a full-length play(1) that starts at a “regular” play-starting time(2), written and performed in the Neo-Futurist aesthetic(3).  The conceit of the show is that the two writer/performers – Joey Rizzolo and Christopher Borg – (inspired by an episode of This American Life) bought a foreclosed storage locker at auction and, donning the mantle of modern/urban archaeologists, made a show out of it.  The show is funny and entertaining and thoughtful and poignant.

I’ve seen it twice already and plan to see it again: it’s really good.

Here is info about the show.  If you want a date, get in touch with me and we’ll go together and then we can have drinks and talk about art . . . that’s always fun!

Footnotes:

  • (1) “full length” as opposed to short form – like the 30 short plays in 60 minutes that comprise our signature show Too Much Light Makes The Baby Go Blind
  • (2) The show starts at 8:00 as opposed to 10:30 which is what time Too Much Light . . . starts every Friday & Saturday
  • (3) The Neo-Futurist aesthetic is non-illusory.  That means we are who we are, we are where we are, we are doing what we’re doing and the time is now.  Here’s a great essay that explains it all written by the founder of Neo-Futurism, Greg Allen.
