CREMATORIUM

9-360x540Russian artist Alexander Kargaltsev, is coming to New York City to protest Vladimir Putin’s fiercely antigay legislation in Russia and occupied Crimea.

From the press release:

Officially banned in Moscow, Kargaltsev’s performance art piece “Crematorium” observes four gay couples being forced to “turn straight,” and is meant “to bring together support and hope for the Russian LGBT and their friends in America.”

Former Ukraine. In the south of Putin’s Crimea, a giant factory with chimneys is built: a Crematorium for gays. Four couples are picked to test a new machine to turn them straight. Torture, interrogation, death and cleansing in the fiery furnace await them. Can you dare to join them in their ordeal?

The show runs only from May 29- June 2 at Shelter Studios and June 11-14 at Gene Frankel Theater. Tickets can be purchased here http://crematorium.bpt.me/ and here: http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/671902
