Benjamin The International Street Cannibals perform the multi-genre concert event, "A Place in France", on December 4th at 7:30pm, at the legendary venue of the main space of St. Mark's in-the-Bowery, 131 East 10th Street, New York City.
On December 4th, the ISC present "A Place in France", a program where clichés become anti-cliché, through the means of both intensification and de-contextualization. The event includes elements such as the can-can, the rituals of fencing, French culinary motifs, the image of the salon, and various American perceptions of French culture. Within a concert fabric that covers a range of familiar symbolic and iconographical vocabularies, the ISC mingle the traditional cultural tropes with the more vital components of the arts of France, producing both a friction and harmony between cliché and viable content. This aesthetic operation points up the actual processes of art, rather than its effects and exteriority.Gene Pritsker : Digital Debussy
