Slides :: Skank Bloc Recap


  • Intro.jpg

    What do you get when you mix fencing, Marxist pop, Pier Paolo Pasolini, and a 1,500 sq. foot orange blob? You get Skank Bloc Bologna Number Four. The maiden performance of Skank Bloc Bologna Number Four at BAM/PFA on Friday, February 19 was a L@TE night unlike any other as these images and video will attest.

    Expect more of the unexpected when Skank Bloc Bologna Number Four returns to BAM/PFA on March 19 with a line-up featuring Tosh Berman’s presentation of Aleph, his father Wallace Berman’s hand-painted filmic meditation on life, death, mysticism, politics, and pop culture; physically challenging “actions” by local artist, dominatrix, and submission wrestler Jennifer Locke; and a recorded sonic tour by U.K.-based dub poet Lynton Kwesi Johnston.
