Deville Cohen - MIDNIGHT
Zero to 120 MPH in less than four seconds. A few seconds later, you're 420 feet in the air. In the race for pure adrenaline thrills, nothing compares to MIDNIGHT, Deville Cohen's high-horsepower shot from the sky.
From a standing start, you're launched on a roller-coaster made from enlarged Xerox reproductions, projections and everyday objects. The ride twists and plunges along a disorienting path drawn from "Flatland: A Romance of Many Dimensions," the 1884 satirical novella by the English schoolmaster Edwin Abbott about a two-dimensional square encountering the third dimension for the first time. This ride may be over in 30 minutes, but it'll stay with you forever. Admission is free with a donation suggested at the door.
Deville Cohen's residency is part of The Performing Garage Presents, The Wooster Group's forum for new art and artists.
Events at The Performing Garage are supported by: the Lower Manhattan Development Corporation, which is funded through Community Development Block Grants from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development; Booth Ferris Foundation; the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs; the New York State Council on the Arts; and the Foundation for Contemporary Arts.
