The Hoover Dam Collective, who've put on some fantastic local shows at LaunchPad over the last two years, are celebrating their second birthday in grand style at the Red Lotus Room this Saturday. Complete info is below, as well as on their site and FB page. Looks to be a heckuva party, and a very affordable one, at that:
On June 16th, 2012, The Hoover Dam Collective presents "Silver Door," our Second Anniversary Show, which is sure to be one of our biggest shows to date, featuring live dance, performance art, visual art installations, and film, plus music performances by Communication Corporation, The Rainbow Children, Horny and the Dance Machine, and Underground System. Silver Door takes place at the Red Lotus Room in Crown Heights, Brooklyn. Doors open at 7pm and the show starts at 8, with free food from 7-8pm. Cover is $10 at the door before 10pm, $15 after 10pm. There will be a cash bar, outdoor bonfire, and a late night dance party. Come help us celebrate our “silver” anniversary!
The Hoover Dam Collective is a group of young artists based in Brooklyn, New York, who are particularly interested in making work that crosses the boundaries of specific art disciplines. The Collective was founded in 2009 by a group of dynamic individuals from the world-renowned arts conservatories at State University of New York at Purchase College. In the last 2 years, we have produced more than 20 arts events in and around New York City, and have included over 100 artists in our productions. Our primary goal is to expose our art to new audiences and break down the barrier between spectator and performer. Most importantly, we hope that our work can help audiences re-evaluate the role that art has in our lives and in the world around us.
