La MaMa 50 World Block Party!
October 16th, 2011, Sunday, from 2-6pm
Join us on East 4th Street between Bowery and 2nd Avenue for tours of La MaMa’s Archive and theatres, as well as family-friendly performances by Blue Man Group, The Silver Cloud Native American Drummers and Singers, Pua Ali’i ‘Ilima o Nuioka Hula Dancers, and the Balkan gypsy punk rock band, Bad Buka.
During the afternoon visitors will also be able to take tours of the La MaMa Archive, Ellen Stewart’s private collection documenting the history of the Off-Off Broadway movement. Registration for the tours will take place prior to the event.
At the conclusion of the block party, city officials will co-name the block “Ellen Stewart Way,” at which time all the church, mosque, and temple bells, and bells all over the neighborhood and the world will ring in a salute to Ms. Stewart — or “MaMa,” as she was affectionately known by artists and audiences alike — who regularly marked the start of performances at La MaMa by ringing a hand bell before welcoming theatre goers.
La MaMa 50 Gala will take a place on October 17, 2011, from 6-10pm including dinner, dancing and performances by alumni artists, Patti Smith, Bill Irwin and more. The tickets tier from $250 – $250,000. More information, click here.
