AcousticaElectronica By ToUch Performance Art Returns To NYC For One Night Only

With sold out performances at American Repertory Theatre in Boston, ToUch Performance Art's immersive dance-theater experience, AcousticaElectronica, returns to NYC on April 14th, 2018. The show will appear reimagined at House of Yes in Brooklyn for the first time. AcousticaElectronica is a 360 degree spectacle for all five-senses, blending dance, live and electronic music, theatre and circus arts. Performers interact with and perform amongst the audience with improvised fluidity; no two shows are ever the same. AcousticaElectronica combines immersive storytelling with the infectious energy of a nightclub, bringing the audience an extraordinarily unique experience.

Come discover at this theatrical roller coaster filled with heart-pounding live music, contagious choreography, breathtaking aerialists, and an unforgettable night ending with a dance party!

However, the show is not just a party. AcousticaElectronica's cast comprises itself of world-class artists who have crafted an imaginative story for audience members who seek a deeper meaning. Find yourself in the house of Dorian Gray. He invites you to view his collection: Carmen, the Conductor, Odette the Swan, and even Pierrot the Clown. Here you'll discover these resurrected ghosts of art's past, pulled into the present. Will they stay as they were and fight to stay relevant? Or will they break through...?

The characters in AcousticaElectronica are a fantastical carnival, but beyond that, they each share in their performance something everyone in attendance can relate to. Strip away the grandeur of performance, they reveal beating hearts: and that they are challenged by society's social and gender-role related boundaries. For example, the character Carmen, as per her operatic storyline, faces sexism, and violence: as a woman who defied the confines of what a "woman should be," she winds up betrayed and killed. Our Carmen explores a modern look at the challenges of being a woman in the performing arts, and in our contemporary world in general.

Dig as deep and as far as you dare in this blend of dance, circus, aerials, opera, acoustic and electronic music. There's always more to discover at AcousticaElectronica, appearing for one night only. Find us when dark touches light on April 14th: 7pm drinks, 7:45pm show, party all night!

AcousticaElectronica debuted at the Boston TOGETHER festival in April of 2011 before beginning a run at OBERON in 2012, and becoming Artists in Residence in 2013. Since then, ToUch has brought AcousticaElectronica to New York City to perform at Le Poisson Rouge, Santos Party House, and DROM.
