IVO DIMCHEV presents METCH Experimental Theater Concert

15 February @ 8:00 pm - 25 February @ 5:30 pm

$30.00

LA MAMA PRESENTS THE WORLD PREMIERE OF METCH by Ivo Dimchev 15–25, 2024  Internationally renowned artist Ivo Dimchev, known for his radically imaginative performances, brings his latest solo work, METCH. Performances will take place February 15-10  (Thursday- Saturday at 8pm, Sunday at 4pm) and November  23- 25 (Friday- Saturday at 8pm, Sunday at 4pm) at The Club at La MaMa 74A East 4th Street New York, NY 10003 in Manhattan.  

Recently, The New York Times wrote, “Dimchev elicits a rare kind of  trust as he cultivates a close-knit community with audiences. “ 

After his successful premiere of In Hell with Jesus/ Top 40  November 2023, Top 40 November 2023 Ivo Dimchev continues his exploration with audience engaged works in the second part of his residency at La MaMa. 

“There is a moment when things you love doing become a  nightmare. Later this very nightmare becomes an opening.”  ~ I.D.

In his new work Ivo revisits former theatrical texts, songs and visual art exploring and searching for new ways of interplaying with the audience and his main areas of artistic interest: METCH = Music, Exhibition, Texts, and Choreography.

“Metch is a concert, an exhibition, an auction, a dance, an excessive production of paintings, obsessive dialogs with my audience, and of course, Metch is about my music and the songs that so many people come for. For better or for worse, those attending will experience and some perhaps will clash with my very complex and unpredictable relationship to theater and contemporary art. La Mamma is a legendary place for experimentation and a very safe place to feel unsafe. So, I’m happy and honored to bring METCH to life here at LaMaMa.” ~ I.D. 

For ages 18+

Tickets for Metch/ Top 40 are $30 (general), $25 (students/seniors). The first 10 tickets are $10 (limit two per person). Ticket prices are inclusive of  all fees. Tickets are available at https://www.lamama.org/shows/ metch-2024

Ivo Dimchev is a theater maker, choreographer, visual artist, singer songwriter, and queer activist from Bulgaria. His work is an extreme and  colorful mix of performance art, dance, theater, music, painting, and  photography. He is the author of more than 40 stage performances and has received numerous international awards for dance and theater.
