CORPS EXQUIS at Webster Hall!

If you missed TRANSIT's premiere of CORPS EXQUIS, last October at Galapagos Art Space (to stellar reviews from Theme Magazine), this Sunday, March 27, you'll have another chance as CORPS EXQUIS receives its grand incarnation at iconic New York venue, Webster Hall.

The performance is part of a twelve hour arts festival that will completely take over the building for the presentation of creative works of every discipline presented by the QAS, an organization that promotes emerging artists while celebrating the history of the venue’s connection to the city.

Corps Exquis will be presented in the Grand Ballroom, and the splendor of the room and its excellent video capabilities will make this a show not to be missed!

Tickets can be purchased for $15 in advance here or for $20 at the door.

Ticket includes admittance for the entire festival. So stick around as long as you like after the performance, or arrive early and check out some of the other contributing artists.

CORPS EXQUIS is a special project between composer Daniel Wohl, the TRANSIT collective and emerging video artists. With their feet firmly planted in the creative brainstorm of New York City's underground new music and contemporary art scenes, these artists join forces to create a large-scale performance piece that crosses artistic boundaries while speaking directly to contemporary culture.

The Surrealists developed the exquisite corpse parlor game in 1920s Paris in which a piece of art is collectively assembled. Each player is assigned a section, but only allowed a glimpse of the very end of the previous player's contribution; no one sees the final piece until each individual section is completed. In this way, a cohesive work is assembled, but each contributor's identity remains distinct in his work. CORPS EXQUIS uses this process to create a seamless multimedia experience that exists at the intersection of video installation, rock concert, avant-garde cinema, and experimental music.
