WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Exquisite Corpse Company invites you to a wedding...or perhaps the funeral...
Join the celebration and jump to the surreal world of A Ribbon About a Bomb. Wander with Frida Kahlo, Remedios Varo, and Leonora Carrington through the abandoned halls of a mansion on Governors Island. Audiences will cycle and muse on, as often the artists did in life, the duality of humanity, womanhood, and art. The captivating, sometimes terrifying work of these three women intertwine, as each attempts to shape their own reality in the face of systematic oppression and entrenched social hierarchies.
Directed by Tess Howsam and written by a diverse team of ten playwrights, the play will feature and original score by KG Garligton and will be performed within original art installations. The show will also highlight an exciting partnership with Nineteenth Amendment, whose designers will be creating costume pieces specifically for the show, inspired by the production's source material.
