Paris 17H45-New York 19H
Limo, direction Arlington Hotel 25th street…”
36DAYS NYC is a mini-opera based on the diaries of dance music luminary Patrick Vidal.
It tells the story of Marie et les Garçons, four French punks landed in New York to record a disco album with the legendary Bob Blank.
Taking elements of Robert Ashley’s TV operas, John Zorn’s free improvisations and today’s mobile technologies, 36DAYS NYC is a place where no-wave, disco and electronic music collide.
