BOFFO, a NYC-based "nonprofit organization that presents innovative and experimental art, architecture, and design," will throw the next BOFFO Fire Island Performance Festival from August 26-28. Billed as "a weekend of performance, music, and dance made for the island’s unique social and geographic context," the festival will include a handful of artists who were commissioned to produce "new and adapted works for the island's diverse public."
Among the artists are musicians who frequent the NYC indie scene like The Blow and Eartheater, plus Tyler Ashley, Xavier Cha with Rafael Reynoso and Adonis Vasquez, Fluct, Fragile (Wolfgang Tillmans), M. Lamar, Pearl, Frankie Sharp, Casey Spooner (of electroclash duo Fischerspooner), Ssion, Telfar and more.
The performances are all free, but you can also purchase a $50 tour with cocktails, and/or attend a $500 benefit dinner. More details and all ticket options HERE.
