That Beast of Festive Skin

June 25, 2012 at 8pm


Alexandra Tatarsky was born and bred in New York City.  Her work is often inspired by Russian absurdism, messianic yearning and alchemical failures.  She has performed in theaters, circus tents, galleries and stairwells in New York, Portland and Eastern Europe.  She is a member of MAMAL, an art collective based in TriBeCa, and The Mauricios, an ongoing dance project devoted to silence and very small movements.  Alexandra is also co-editor of the Reed College Erotic Review and Baruch Atah, a journal of Russian Jewish translation.

“That Beast of Festive Skin”  is a solo show giving voice to those resilient creatures who perform at the flourishing open mic scene in the fiery pits of Hell.  Please join us for an evening of uplifting torment as Alexandra Tatarsky workshops several infernal characters for La Mama’s Poetry Electric Series.  Featuring Laila Caron, Levi Stone and others.
