Responding to national protests and social isolation, Downtown Variety brings La MaMa's 1960s café aesthetic to a virtual platform that links performers and audiences in real time across distance.
Artists for this edition include: John Jesurun, Nuntinee Tansrisakul and Yuguang Zhang, Volumetric Performance Toolbox (Valencia James with Glowbox and Sorob Louie), and Fleshmarket Theatre Company, with video art by Stefanie Batten Bland and Malena Dayen with Sangmin Chae, plus live music by John King!
