I'm currently working on the remount of a Jim Neu play "The Floatones" with director Keith McDermott and a fantastic cast of downtown NYC performance-world stars: Jess Barbagallo, Joshua William Gelb, Larissa Velez-Jackson and Greg Zuccolo. We've got a work-in-progress performance coming up on March 24 at Dixon Place.
"The Floatones" is an experimental theater work in which four people form an "encounter support group” that sings about “post meaning” and being “content free” while consoling each other with idiosyncratic gestures and atonal harmonies. The play was written by the late downtown theater legend Jim Neu and premiered in 1995 at La MaMa's The Club starring Neu, Keith McDermott, Bill Rice and Mary Shultz. Catherine Galasso offers a fresh take on "The Floatones" in collaboration with a new generation of downtown performers. Keith McDermott (a director of Jim's plays for 15 years and a member of the original Floatones’ cast) is co-director and dramaturg. Galasso and McDermott will open the night with an excerpt from Neu's "Immediality."
