Alex Tatarsky: Dirt Trip
Alex Tatarsky presents the New York premiere of their solo performance, Dirt Trip, including a secret, site-specific installation of improvised sculpture and objects culled from an artistic “waste audit” of MoMA PS1. A trained clown and obsessive compost-lover, Tatarsky shares revelations from ongoing research into the territory between humor and humus. Linking American pop-cultural angst over the evil clown to efforts to banish garbage and urban blight, Tatarsky examines our fears of figures and substances which suggest transitional, ambiguous, and disordered states. Contents may include: the ballad of an unemployed court jester who desires to be a rotting vegetable; a lecture that decays into a heap of dirt.
