CoHo SUMMERFEST 2019
For Mature Audiences
More info: cohoproductions.org

CoHo Summerfest 2019 merges cutting-edge multidisciplinary theatre artists with whimsy, witches, a suitcase full of dreams, really cheap PBR, several rubber chickens, first generation teen angst, live music, international accordion divas, contemporary dance, and live music to keep you off the couch and away from that next slightly regrettable Netflix binge – at least through July.

Week #1: WITCH HUNT
by Philip Cuomo & the CoHo Clown CoHort
June 27 – 30
With extreme physical comedy and minimal dialogue, Witch Hunt playfully examines the thrilling boundaries between Puritan repression and libertine freedom while challenging Satan to a game of musical chairs and sneaking a cookie when nobody’s watching. Even though somebody is always watching. Last seen in workshop form during January’s Fertile Ground Festival, Witch Hunt is the second full production developed by the CoHo Clown CoHort.
PURITANS. LIBERTINES. MUSICAL CHAIRS.
All performances begin at 7:30pm

Week #2: COUP DE FOUDRE
by Teatro Pachuco
July 5 – 7
Coup de Foudre (“stroke of lightning”) is a story about two people, old luggage, cowboy boots, uncooperative objects, rubber chickens, misunderstanding, tenderness, solitude, and tea parties in the rain. In a silent movie world that straddles dream and reality, a clown and a ballerina open a suitcase full of dreams and learn what happens when two misfits find unexpected love.
MISFITS. LIGHTNING. UNEXPECTED LOVE.
*This show is family friendly (recommended for ages 8+) with 2 matinee performances offered. Children 8-12 admitted for $5 with a paying adult.
Performances begin at 2:00pm or 7:30pm

Week #3: MY LITTLE CHINA GIRL
Written, choreographed and performed by Soomi Kim
July 11 – 14
“Oh baby, just you shut your mouth…” When David Bowie died, performing artist Soomi Kim was suddenly reminded of her own coming of age in the MTV generation and her adolescent desire to be the exotic Asian woman in Bowie’s China Girl video. My Little China Girl is Kim’s solo multidisciplinary dive into the missing spaces of memory, Max Headroom, family, 1980s teen angst, cultural beauty standards, Bowie-love, and yearning to be accepted from the perspective of a first generation Korean American child.
ADOLESCENT DESIRE. MEMORY GAPS. DAVID BOWIE.
All performances begin at 7:30pm

Week #4: SUMMERFEST RUCKUS
It’s the fest within the fest! It’s a variety show. It’s a grab bag. It’s a free for all. A RUCKUS is what it is. Dutch accordion divas, heads in handbags, musical eye surgery, spoken word cartwheels, contemporary dance, palindrome machines, life journeys, complex choices, amplified sound, loop stations – it’s Summerfest Ruckus! Featuring Matt Sheehy, Catherine Egan, Jet Black Pearl, Claire Rigsby & Keegan Kyle + more local artists announced soon!
ANYTHING. COULD. HAPPEN.
All performances begin at 7:30pm
