Richard Move and MoveOpolis! present Hostile Takeover six elaborate live performance installations that occur at different downtown locations. A glamorous collision of sexual desire and violence, masculinity and femininity and real and imagined worlds, Hostile Takeover places feminine beauty upon a pedestal (literally) in the midst of the male-dominated world of high finance, with stunningly costumed, Butoh-inspired female dancers. Costumes are made by Teatro del Odio and Gia Grosso, music is by DJ Savage. A final performance event, Dances at a Gathering, featuring the entire MoveOpolis! cast and an assortment of professional artists and DJs, will be presented on August 25.
