What’s On (Edmonton): Biblioteka by Ben Gorodetsy – Mile Zero Dance



Situated at the intersection of movement, theatre, storytelling, literature, music, installation, and improvisational text-score Biblioteka is a performance that investigates the intellectual, cultural, and emotional artifact of books.

Created and performed by Ben Gorodetsky, Biblioteka intersects ritual movement, autobiographical storytelling, live reading, experimental theatre, folk music and improvisation. Using a combination of personal literary treasures that have travelled with Gorodetsky thousands of kilometers and criss-crossed international borders, and discarded garbage books from the curbs around Flatbush, Brooklyn. Performed in collaboration with multi-instrumentalist and storyteller Larissa Pohoreski.
