Ben Gorodetsky + Larissa Poho
January 15, 2020 @ 7:30 PM
Biblioteka is a duet for one performer and one musician, set within a spontaneously constructed library of 100+ books. Created and performed by Ben Gorodetsky, Biblioteka intersects ritual movement, autobiographical storytelling, live reading, experimental theatre, folk music and improvisation. Using a combination of personal literary treasures that have travelled with Gorodetsky thousands of kilometers and criss-crossed international borders, and discarded garbage books from the curbs around Flatbush, Brooklyn, Biblioteka peels back the layers of intellectual, cultural, and emotional residue and looks at what remains. Performed in collaboration with multi-instrumentalist and storyteller Larissa Poho.
