WSB100: Elliott Sharp & Steve Buscemi
RSVP (sold out!) guarantees entry until 8pm, after 8pm doors will be opened to capacity.
Issue Project Room and WSB100 present a celebration of the legacy of William S. Burroughs during the 100th anniversary of the writer's birth in 1914. Actor, director, and writer Steve Buscemi and composer/multi-instrumentalist Elliott Sharp continue their collaboration, last seen at Issue Project Room for Elliott Sharp's E#@60 celebration. The duo create a collage of sound and words integrating texts by William S. Burroughs with Elliott Sharp's vast soundworlds, which since the 1970s have careened from Delta blues to Fibonacci numbers and into previously unknown territories. Buscemi, who has a screenplay for Burroughs' 'Queer' in development and spent much time with the writer in his later years, will lend his distinctive delivery and style to texts from throughout Burroughs's diverse body of work.
