NIGHTLIFE: Remy Autumn Torres
NIGHTLIFE Presents: Remy Autumn Torres
Live Streaming @ 9 PM on Twitch
November 26, 2022
Join us for CoHo NIGHTLIFE with Remy Autumn Torres – live streaming from CoHo to the virtual stage, somewhere near you.
After 13 years of pushing the bounds of poetry and performance, Remy Autumn Torres presents their first full-length solo showcase for a live and virtual audience. At turns sardonic and sentimental, political and surreal, Torres abandons the conventions of spoken word for a maximalist performance that both centers and elevates the text. Featuring puppeteer Kiani Fiona, Remy’s poetic performance delivers unexpected delights, featuring tigers and rabbits and birds – oh my!
More at home performing at punk shows and renegade raves than coffee shops, but with no less dedication to the word itself than the MFA kids, tune in to the CoHo Twitch channel at 9 PM on November 26th, to see your local loud, queer, maximalist poet, live and in action on the CoHo stage.
