Coil will feature five theatre productions: Tyson vs. Ali, Muazzez, An Evening with William Shatner Asterisk, House of Dance and Have I No Mouth. Three dance works will also be presented: a quartet, Bronx Gothic and The Angola Project.
The festival will also feature the 10th anniversary of Catch, described in press notes as a "multi-disciplinary, rough-and-ready performance series," and the Red + White Party with sounds by Elevator Repair Service.
Late-night programming at The Lounge at The Public Theater will be announced at a later date.
"For this year's Coil Festival, we turn our gaze inward by focusing on our own — New York City artists working on very intimate, personal stories of who and why we are," Performance Space 122 artistic director Vallejo Gantner said in a statement. "Coil14's artists are re-imagining how we tell these stories — with traditional forms juxtaposed against new and remarkable combinations of song, movement, fight and sound."
Most tickets will go on sale Nov. 12 and may be purchased by calling (212) 352-3101 or visiting ps122.org.
