Studio Series: Regie Cabico (in partnership with Urban Word NYC)
Co-curated by and in partnership with Urban Word NYC, Cabico, said to have a “wry theatricality and naked emotionalism [that] creates excellent smarmy diva material” (The Village Voice), will present his latest spoken word play chronicling his encounters with poet stalkers who invite him to Canadian Thanksgiving, sextings and astrological whimsy.
In Godiva Dates & a One Night Stand, Cabico tells stories of how he attracts males by writing them poetic odes or mailing them gay super hero wedding comic books. By the time he reaches 50, he doesn’t want his life to be a Barbara Streisand film. Cabico is on the eternal mission to get his groove back.
The Studio Series offers an opportunity for research and development in a creative residency format, providing resources of time, space and a commission. The Studio Series is a research laboratory for physical explorations and new movement investigations with a focus on process, not final performance/product. The “performances” are intended to be informal public showings to share ideas with an audience in the intimate working space of the studio. Studio Series artists are curated internally by the Artistic Director in conjunction with Programming staff and guest curators from Urban Word NYC.
Studio Series recives generous support from the National Endowment for the Arts, the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, the Jerome Foundation and the Foundation For Contemporary Arts.
