Michael and the Go-Getters present: mighty mighty ways to exit a room
$12 | $10 Students
New York based performance group, Michael and the Go-Getters has been invited to premiere their new evening-length work mighty mighty ways to exit a room at The Tank NYC. The work deals directly with our notions of fictional permanence, immediate presence, and our peculiar ways of stomaching the inexplicable. You could also say that it's about death, do-overs and Choose-Your-Own-Adventure books. Set within the microcosm of a small room, performers create and execute games while battling to make sense out of winning and losing. Acclaimed dance artists Janna Diamond, Michael Ingle, Kendra Portier, Christina Robson, and Ryoji Sasamoto perform in tandem with pre-recorded found sound and Mike Rugnetta's sonic landscape.

About Michael and the Go-Getters
Michael Ingle founded Michael and the Go-Getters in the summer of 2010 as a mode and a means of exploring the unfamiliar territory that is at our fingertips -- and as a kick in the arse to "get going" with some choreographic ideas that were festering in his brain. MGG is a movement-based performance company that is invested in creating and performing site-specific works. We acknowledge that every work has a site and we particularly enjoy making work that fits into, utilizes, and otherwise specifies the location in which we exist. We are currently contending with notions of fictional permanence, immediate presence and the inevitable interaction/relationship between the performer and the audience. michaelandthegogetters.com
