Crossing the Line 2009
Steven Cohen
Knock ‘Em Dead

Wednesday–Thursday, September 16–17, 2009 at 7:30pm
CPR–Center for Performance Research

Steven Cohen culminates his research residency at Baryshnikov Arts Center and CPR–Center for Performance Research with a special presentation/performance as part of Crossing the Line.

Knock ‘Em Dead is an evening of film, images, and live performance that incorporates video fragments of some of Cohen’s public interventions and draws inspiration from the small cemeteries that survive in the “city that never sleeps”. It aims to look at the idea of “motionlessness” and silence in the noisy and actively congested Manhattan city space. In a city defined by neighborhoods, Manhattan’s cemeteries bridge racial, cultural, and religious boundaries—much like Cohen’s own body of work.
