St. Ann’s Warehouse 2006-2007

Here’s a first look at St. Ann’s 2006-2007 schedule.

Les Freres Corbusier
Hell House
Oct 1 – 29

Every year, hundreds of Evangelical churches stage Hell Houses across America to scare nonbelievers to Jesus. Les Freres Corbusier aim their provocative spotlight at the Christian Right, creating New York City’s first authentic multi-chambered house of horrors. Part installation, part performance, part haunted house.

The Tiger Lillies
Danses Macabres
Oct 31 – Nov 1

Celebrate Halloween with everybody’s favorite trashcan troubadours as they unleash all new songs, some based on the nightmarish writings of H.P. Lovecraft. Dress up for two nights of mayhem and macabre antics from Shockheaded Peter’s “brilliantly twisted” (The Guardian) Brechtian cabaret band.

Stuart A. Staples
Leaving Songs
Nov 4

Tindersticks’ soulful lead singer makes his first solo appearance, taking Tindersticks’ brooding orchestral sound to a more intimate, revealing place, adding a hint of Nashville to the arrangements. Leaving Songs celebrates change in signature Staples’ fashion – with poignancy, lyricism, and heat.

The Gate Theatre London
Nov 13 – Dec 3

Daniel Kramer’s high-octane production was hailed as “Explosively powerful”¦ by far the best and most daring account of [Woyzeck] I have ever seen” -The Sunday Times. The Daily Telegraph called Edward Hogg “unforgettably anguished “¦ so gentle and haunted at the start, so raving and dangerous at the end.”

Lou Reed
Dec 14 – 17

Recorded in 1973, Lou Reed’s Berlin was the unexpected follow-up to Transformer. Although it became a cult favorite, Berlin was never performed live. Until now! From Beerhalle staccato to the embers of a final Sad Song…this is an evening to press between the crumbling leaves of Fall.

Cynthia Hopkins
Must Don’t Whip ‘Um
Jan 15 – Feb 4

Hopkins’ high-spirited musical journey is a Last Waltz-style farewell concert performance of one Cameron Seymour — failed 1970’s pop star – on the eve of her disappearance. A life spirals out of control through Hopkins portrayal of the legendary Ms. Seymour.

The Wooster Group
Feb 27 – Mar 25

Do not miss the first chance to see preview performances of The Wooster Group’s highly anticipated Hamlet, directed by Elizabeth LeCompte, which draws inspiration from the “Electronovision Teatrofilm” of Hamlet performed and produced for television by Richard Burton in the 1960s.
