Ri Molnar - Hell Is Real at Transmodern Labbodies

Caution: bare bazooms. But it is art. And after viewing, you will agree that "Hell is real."

Yvonne Meier

I regret that I cannot find any relevant videos of Ms. Meier in performance. But perhaps these stills and text will suffice to convey her uniqueness. Spare no expense to rush to NYC to catch this act!



Another view of determination emerged on Monday, courtesy of the bold downtown choreographer Yvonne Meier. In “Durch Nacht und Nebel” (“By Night and Fog”), she keeps her audacious reputation intact, as well as her predilection for props. Here, they include a hefty mound of rubble, plastic eggs with baby dolls inside — she shoves them in her mouth — and Band-Aids. They cover much of Ms. Meier’s voluptuous, nearly naked body; as she shakes, they quiver, transforming her skin into scales.

Fearlessly morphing from one creature to the next — one transformation involved an orange bodysuit affixed with the plastic babies, and in another, she was coated in black paint — she exposed her aging body with aplomb.

Eliza Bent

Luckily for us all, Eliza Bent, having exhausted the audiences of Austin, has found new comrades and a new home in New York City for her "art."

That her new piece is titled "Toilet Fire" leaves us eager to drop everything and attend!

Shadows of Paragon:  Silentium

It's been way too long since we examined any Death Metal here. Or maybe, after you hear this, you'll say, "It's been just long enough, if not too soon!"

Turn your sound almost off first. Seriously. Don't be fooled by the melodic opener.

Why would anyone listen to this stuff voluntarily? Could your life really be so horrible that this music was uplifting?

Info on band.
