The Labbodies Performance Art Laboratory is teaming up with Transmodern Festival and Subbasement Gallery to produce our most ambitious lab night yet, OVER UNDER LIMBO!
The Labbodies team will transform Subbasement Gallery into a cavernous entry/exit point to the shadowy world of Over Under Limbo and into the rainbow ..... a mercurial world populated by national, regional and local Performance Artists for two nights only! We will incorporate both the Garden of Elysium, The River Styx and other nooks and crannies of the domain of Hades and other deities into our installation.
Over Under Limbo, is an exploration of the space in between the underworld and paradise (limbo). Hades, is the god of the underworld, but the underworld is not all dark and dreary. The story of Hades and Persephone is well known. But what would happen if Persephone took control? How would the story end if she had the power over her sexuality and the underworld were ruled by her? What would happen if a unicorn came along and changed the story?

LabBodies is a Baltimore based performance art laboratory. We create a space for experimentation in performance art in venues throughout the city.
LabBodies is inviting artists from New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Dayton to come to Baltimore to be a part of this week long of performance happenings.
We have 23 local, regional and national performers and artists who will be involved in the Over/Under Limbo Lab !!
Show dates are:
Friday September 26th 9:00pm
Saturday September 27th 9:00pm
118 N Howard St, Baltimore, MD 21201
In the spirit of gratitude, we really want to be able to provide every artist with a stipend for participating in the festival.
In other words, we want to pay every artist for their work. We also need funds to get materials for the installation in Subbasement.
We need your help to make it happen !!!

Risks and challenges
We have a history of curating large scale performance art events. One of the challenges is: how can we fund these prolific performance artists to do their work?
The risk is that we will not be able to provide stipends for every performance artist that is involved.
That would be a shame!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
