TODO is one daily thing recommended for you, by us.
Do you occasionally get guilt pangs because so many of your entertainment dollars go into the already-bulging pockets of major media conglomerates? Would you totally go out and see some of the underground artsy dancing and acting that New York offers so much of, if only you had an ironclad guarantee that the performance wasn't going to be boring and sucky? Well, today is your lucky day. Actually, Sunday is your lucky day — that's when the Catch series has its next installment at Galapagos.
Catch is a bimonthly performance and video series presenting short works, curated and hosted by Andrew Dinwiddie and Jeff Larson. Founded in 2003 by Jenny Seastone Stern as a home for the emerging avant-garde, Catch has grown in Jeff and Andrew's hands, presenting artists such as Big Dance Theater, David Neumann, Cynthia Hopkins, Christopher Williams, Miguel Gutierrez, Young Jean Lee, Karinne Keithley, Adrienne Truscott, Neal Medlyn, Jennifer Monson, John Moran, Witness Relocation, Chris Yon and members of the National Theater of the United States of America. This Sunday's installment features Ivy Baldwin, Faye Driscoll, Natalie Green, Aaron Landsman, Neal Medlyn, Lucas Near-Verbrugghe, Normandy Sherwood, and Sara Smith, all with brand-new work that, if past shows are anything to go by, will include spangly costumes, nobody taking themselves too seriously, and possibly nudity. It's only $10, and also you can drink throughout because Galapagos is a bar, which should pretty much seal the deal. See you there!
