andy Warhol fever takes over new york city

 

The American artist, film director, and producer Andy Warhol was a leading figure in the 1960s pop art movement. Today, almost three decades after he died, Warhol still maintains an iconic persona worldwide, that inspires an enormous range of people, leaving his stamp on numerous artworks, such as the Campbell’s soup cans and the silkscreen painting of Marilyn Monroe.

 

‘Chasing Andy Warhol,’ is an immersive theatrical walking tour that steps spectators into his imagined world and work. Wandering among the streets of New York City, participants discover the story and legacy of the artist, unfolding highlights of his enigmatic life. immersive theatrical walking tour of andy warhol's life takes over the streets of new yorkAll Images by Chasing And Play

 

 

a fascinating tour of andy warhol’s favorite haunts

 

The adventure begins at the Astor place cube in the East Village neighborhood of Manhattan and lasts around an hour. Inspired by Warhol’s mysterious life, the street performance by Bated Breath Theater Company offers the audience a bizarre and amusing experience in search of the iconic artist. 

 

The late artist is revived in giant puppets, while multiple ‘Warhols’ take over the streets. The scenography immerses the audience in the New York City of the 60s, back to an era that popped. A charming combination of theatre, dance, film, art, and puppetry, accompanied by the corresponding props, guides the audience behind windows of area businesses and inside secret locations along the route, telling the idol’s story.
