THEM opens at PS 122 in NYC

October 22, 2010

Last night THEM opened or rather re-opened at PS 122. –originally staged 25 years ago at PS THEM has been reconstructed and while it’s got a new cast it’s stayed true to the original text. Conceived in 1985 its was clearly a response to the AIDS crisis and death happening all around the three creators: Ishmael Houston-Jones, Dennis Cooper and Chris Cochrane but the visceral performance speaks to the here and now.  Spank was invited by Travis Chamberlain and Ben Pryor to be part of the presentations at New Museum leading up to the opening at PS 122.

There are some rough and controversial moments in  this beautiful show but we know its an important piece you dont want to miss.

Below are some photographs by Christy Pessagno of the rehearsals.
