House of Yes presents
Little Cinema No.37: Basquiat (Immersive)
‘Nobody loves a genius child’
New York, The 80’s, The Art, The Grime, that creative new wave spirit. Bowie. Basquiat. Andy Warhol and an endless array of Little Cinema surprises in one of our favorite films of all time.
Basquiat, starring David Bowie as Andy Warhol showcases an incredible New York art scene in what feels at times more like a moving art piece than an actual film…
In this special intimate evening, we'll host musician and actor Brian Kelly — an acquaintance of both Jean-Michele Basquiat and David Bowie, and who also worked alongside Julian Schnabel during the making of this film --to play songs from the original soundtrack as well as perform a special spoken word piece about his last encounter with Jean-Michele Basquiat only 6 month before he passed away.
This multi displianry film will get the full Little Cinema treatment with added video art, live music, dance, arieal and circus. Expect the full 360 degrees of immersive live action of which Little Cinema is becoming famous for.
The night includes:
Live music: Brian Kelly (Featured in the original soundtrack)
Dance & Chroeography by The Love Show & Doron Perk
Ariel & Circus by Hybrid Movement Company & House Of Yes
Live Jazz Trumpet by: 'Untitled'
