Joseph Keckler Performance/Artist Talk at New York University
NYU's Department of Performance Studies presents the first event in this year's Performance Studies Lecture Forum: JOSEPH KECKLER.
Joseph Keckler is a performance artist, writer, and singer. His work explores the gap between theater and life, establishing unexpected connections between art, identity, and contemporary alienation. In his performances, he fuses story-telling with an elastic, classically trained, and chameleonic three-octave voice to create one-person fantasias which bring the banal to operatic intensity. Keckler’s pieces have been featured on NPR, The Sundance Channel, and Transform.org, and he has performed at HERE, Living Theater, Galapagos Art Space, London’s Duckie, Abron Arts Center, SF MOMA, The Player’s Club, Dixon Place, The Guggenheim, as well as other venues in New York City, nationally, and abroad.
Please join us on TUESDAY MARCH 2ND, 7-8:30PM to see Joseph Keckler discuss and perform his work.
Located in the Performance Studies Studio at Tisch School of the Arts (721 Broadway, 6th Floor)
FREE. Reception (with free food and drinks!) following talk.
No reservations required for NYU students and faculty.
