To Do: John Jasperse @ BAM

jasperse190.jpgCheck out Roslyn Sulcas’ sweet preview of John Jasperse‘s new work, “Misuse liable to prosecution.” Then go see the show tonight at BAM.  (We’ve heard there’s still plenty of availability.)

It sounds like the dance is going to be an exercise in economic transparency:

“…in the opening section of “Misuse liable to prosecution,” a title that refers to a warning on milk crates, Mr. Jasperse flatly recites a list of numbers that eloquently point up the bizarre discrepancies between his reputation and his realities.

Revealing such information is a concept so antithetical to our population’s latest get-rich-quick frenzy, which requires a good amount of deception and is fueled so much by tabloid media and celebrity aesthetics: celebrity equals rich; rich equals celebrity; with no room in between.

Sounds like a gamble for Jasperse and for BAM.  We can’t wait to see it.
