A Ribbon About A Bomb
World Premiere Production on Governor's Island, Summer 2017.
Exquisite Corpse Company invites you to a wedding. Or perhaps a funeral...
Wander with Frida Kahlo, Remedios Varo, and Leonora Carrington through the abandoned halls of a mansion on Governors Island. Audiences will cycle and muse on, as often the artists did in life, the duality of humanity, womanhood, and art. The captivating, sometimes terrifying works of these three women intertwine, as each attempts to shape their own reality in the face of systematic oppression and entrenched social hierarchies.
