May 9th is Europe Day – a great occasion for cultural festivities. To celebrate Europe Day in New York, Jim Avignon, Katja Loher, and the Goethe-Institut New York will transform Galapagos with a sampler of European culture by New York-based European artists and special guests, who will fly in for the event directly from Europe.
Blind Date Europe presents concerts, theater, video screenings, multimedia shows, paintings and DJs. The stage in the front room will feature concerts by special guests Felix Kubin, Neoangin, and Dorit Chrysler, and on the stage in the back room there will be the premiere of Katja Loher’s new short movie The Chess Field, Ant Hampton’s experimental theater piece The Other People / La Otra Gente, several short films by Marie Losier, and a multimedia event by PotiPoti. Galapagos will be decorated with paintings by Jim Avignon. Later at night, DJs will spin while the audience can dance or digest all the delicious art they have seen.
