Immersive Show DYNAMIC ALPINE SEXUAL Headed to Umbrella Factory This Spring
The Umbrella has announced the world premiere production of DYNAMIC ALPINE S-XUAL (DAS), in an exclusive limited engagement at The Umbrella Factory (200 Morgan Avenue, 2nd Floor, Brooklyn, NY 11237). Created by and starring Jordan Sarah, performances begin Friday, March 31 and continue through Saturday, April 1.
DAS, is an immersive multimedia theatrical experience. Situated in a hexagonal set, with three panels of video screens augmenting the action, music videos and live action interludes tell the story of an oblivious ski legend, Dirk Dassler (Jordan Sarah), who at the height of his fame, grapples with preposterous and privileged personal crises.
Set to the score of the DAS album, this parody of the 'lifestyle genre', follows an anti-hero skiing legend, Dirk Dassler, who sabotages a high flying career to follow a deluded dream that finds him back where he started, albeit with his soul and dreams crushed.
DAS, the album, is more than the overwhelming rush you get while hurling yourself carelessly down a mountainside, or the effect your distinguished accolades have on securing the world's most discriminating sexual participants. It's a way of being that governs your very soul.
Produced by the dynamic duo behind the Rinsed nightlife events, Dan Wender and Blacky II, the production features scenic and lighting design by Chris Lunney, costume design by Vestment, and stage fabrication by Vitek Glinski and Bob Gallucci. The website is designed by Ana Giraldo Wingler.
DAS plays the following schedule: Friday, March 31 at 7pm, 9pm and 11pm; Saturday, April 1 at 5pm, 7pm, 9pm, 11pm. The Umbrella Factory is located at 200 Morgan Ave, 2 Fl, Brooklyn NY 11237. Running Time: 60 minutes.
Tickets are $15 which include a free beverage and a digital download of the DAS album. Tickets are avalable online at rinsed.it/events/dynamic-alpine-sexual and the album is available at theumbrella.bandcamp.com/album/dynamic-alpine-sexual.

ABOUT THE ARTISTS:
JORDAN SARAH (Performer/Playwright) DAS is the brainchild of multimedia artist Jordan Sarah who has worked as a theater performer in Germany and a techno producer in England. Through the lens of humor, Jordan is interested in exploring themes of accelerationism, struggles of the privileged, and sport drama.
RINSED (Director) is a pop-up club-night based in Brooklyn, NY. Fusing installation art and music, they've hosted some of dance music's biggest acts and showcased them in DIY venues all across the city. Their alumni have gone on to headline the world's largest festivals, and their fans return time after time to hear the best dance music in thoughtful and unusual locations.
Dan Wender & Blacky II are RINSED's founders and residents. They also run and manage an independent label, "The Umbrella". They've produced and played every rinsed party featuring world renowned artists like Jacques Greene, Jackmaster, & Crystal Waters.
DAS is RINSED's first foray into the multimedia theater arena. However their experience producing immersive nightlife events lends them an intrinsic eye for producing captivating events. DAS will combine their obsessive attention to aesthetic detail, with a proprietary stage and set design, to create a new experience to be loved by both electronic music lovers and bizarre theater lovers alike.
THE UMBRELLA is dedicated to bringing together the familiar and the foreign. An outward extension of the body simultaneously both joining and dividing ourselves from our environment. It provides the ability to experience the rain and not get wet.
The Umbrella's mission is to provide a new kind of record label. While most record labels have some kind of a basic release party, The Umbrella puts an equal emphasis on the experiential component of each albums release. Each release on the label is 50% album / 50% event, so that you can truly experience the music in the most appropriately curated setting. While some releases are dancier and conducive to a dance party, so releases are not and allow us to create a more off-the-wall, out there stage production. We are thrilled to be debuting this new form of entertainment with DAS.
