Iris Rose: "Box of Gems" - Presented by TWEED
This show is part of TWEED'S Sundays @ Seven Series, Kevin Malony artistic director.
Iris Rose returns to Pangea with a set of songs spanning the history of television. Iris has been busy collecting such treasures as an aria from an opera written for television in 1951, a haunting folk ballad from the final season of Game of Thrones, tunes by bands who wish they were the Beatles, songs that wish they were the themes to James Bond movies, and a heartfelt tribute to bourbon. Chris Berg returns on piano and keyboard, joined by Philip Sheegog on cello and Youssef Benomar on drums.
Iris Rose is a longtime resident of the East Village, where she performed, wrote, and directed many shows with the group Watchface in the 1980s (archived at watchface.nyc) at the Pyramid Club, La MaMa, and PS 122, among many other venues. In 2008 she founded the short-lived Theater of the Grasshopper that presented offbeat shows for kids and adults. She is currently a designer of children's clothing (Mackrelmint on Etsy), a sewing teacher, and a performer whenever the opportunity arises.
