Prowling the Abyss
In Prowling the Abyss, the creator and solo performer Karen Anne Light becomes Medusa – a modern incarnation of a mythical creature – who hosts an evening of comedy. Her show falls apart as the guests appear and bring with them traumas and dreams: Butter Sandwich strains to share poetic insights about love but needs subtitles because she can’t get off of the floor. Tremble Lip, a breathy, sweet femme, just wants to ride in cars and drink milkshakes with the butch of her dreams. In a performance combining text and physical theater, Light and her collaborators guide their audience through a variety of tropes dealing with outright and hidden forms of misogyny to reassemble the fragmented spirit of queer femininity.
Admission to this event (funded by NYFA/City Artist Corps Grant) is free but RSVP is required.
357 W 36th St, 3rd floor
