About The Book
The Book is an installation-performance series accompanying an ongoing exhibition based in experimental non-theater dance. Each performance is a random page from The Book, and each invites a different guest artist to enter the structure, created by Avy K Productions and collaborators, in order to destroy it and give it new life. Avy K brings together artists of different media to create improvisational multidisciplinary performances involving contemporary dance, live painting, evolving installation, video projection, and live music.
