Chasing Andy Warhol follows on the heels of Bated Breath Theatre Company’s award-winning production Voyeur: The Windows of Toulouse-Lautrec, the longest-running pandemic friendly show in New York City. Voyeur turned the West Village into Paris in 1899 and now, in partnership with us here at the NoHo BID, our friends at the Village Alliance, plus neighborhood business TMPL Clubs at Astor Place, Bated Breath will use the neighborhood as a set that will transport audiences into the world of the most influential artist of the 20th century.
The theatrical walking tour production will employ Bated Breath’s unique multimedia approach as scenes inspired from Warhol’s enigmatic life unfold on the streets, behind windows of area businesses, and inside secret locations along the route. Despite Warhol’s celebrity and fame, he was also an obscure, mystifying persona who preferred to remain elusive. The show will use a distinct blend of immersive theatre, dance, film, art, and puppetry to peek into the life of the iconic artist. Chasing Andy Warhol goes beyond the hype and into the deepest feelings of a profoundly complex person – whose legacy continues to bombard our senses at every turn.
