La Ultima Noche Que Pase Contigo / The Last Night I Spent With You

Co-founder and Artistic Director Papo Colo will present a farewell celebration performance as an exit from Exit Art and the entrance to his next full-time project, Tricker Theater. The hour long performance will be a collage of old works (2010’s Distant Sex) and new works meditating on time and memory, the political and sexual, the economic and monetary, and current modes of unrest in the spirit of the Occupy movement. The performances will be followed by “Sweeping Memories,” a ritual cleansing of Exit Art’s space that acts as a metaphor for Exit Art’s closing and Colo’s retirement as Artistic Director. Performers include Ernesto Nodal, Elinor Thompson, Zoe Metcalfe-Klaw, Jolie Pichardo, among others.
Trickster Theater is a multinational, polyglot theatre company, creating new works for a global audience in New York City. This project, which will serve as Papo Colo’s next artistic feat, explores the process and union of art, music and language in the context of performance. Trickster productions will be produced out of Colo’s apartment loft on Canal Street, where Exit Art was originally conceived. This breeding ground will allow for intimate performances for select audiences to engage with the actor in startlingly discreet and simple ways.
