Electronic Arts Intermix, 535 West 22nd Street, 5th floor
Presented in collaboration with Performa and Electronic Arts Intermix (EAI), the evening will feature a screening of Squat Theatre's extraordinary two-part video Mr. Dead and Mrs. Free (1981). Capturing one of the collective's key theatrical productions, Mr. Dead and Mrs. Free includes video documentation of Squat Theatre's live show of the same name as well as a film, originally played at the beginning of the show, that provides an astonishing glimpse of New York's downtown underground in the early '80s.
After the screening, Eva Buchmuller and Anna Koos from Squat Theatre will join Whitney curator Jay Sanders and EAI's Rebecca Cleman to discuss the collective's legendary history and iconoclastic approach to theater.
