Torn Space Theater is proud to present STOREHOUSE, its third exploration of the grain elevators along Buffalo’s waterfront. The production will be a multi-disciplinary performance consisting of installations, dance, music film, and athletics.
The central narrative of this work is the stages of psychosocial development, and the interior spaces and landscapes of Silo City are transformed into points of human development from infancy to late adulthood. Various stages include love and intimacy versus isolation and confusion, the exuberance of a pep rally to the quiet of an elegy, the romance of crooners to the indifference of a Bergman film. The stages of life progress as the audience proceeds through the caverns of the silos.
The exhibition will run from August 22nd to the 24th. General admission is $10. VIP tickets are $50 and includes access to a rooftop performance, cocktails, a boxing match, a drum solo, and views of the Buffalo River.
