LA GRANDE BOUFFE: Le Fooding is a Paris-born guerilla culinary movement that thumbs its nez at staid, starched-napkin cuisine, trumped by real food made with feeling. And this weekend, no need to jet to the land of duck fat to experience one of its famous happenings – the founders have rounded up NYC chefs like David Chang and Daniel Boulud and paired them with their French counterparts for Le Fooding d'Amour Paris-New York, an epic two-night event at P.S.1. A limited number of $30 (!) tickets will be available at the door, and proceeds go to Action Against Hunger. 7PM (also on Saturday), details here.
IT’S ALIVE: Today through Sunday, the 13th Annual Art Under the Bridge Festival blankets DUMBO with more than 80 pieces of “touchable, accessible, and interactive art.” Sights and sounds include streets paved with oyster shells, traffic signs hjacked by poetry, and a guy turned into a werewolf by the recession (River’s Edge, Tercet and Stir Crazy). Squint and pre-condo DUMBO lives again, a blazing hotbed of artistic expression. September 25-27, details here.
YO: Okay, so it’s a tad high-concept – but geniusly so, and utterly original: “Rocky Philly” is a play that “weaves personal stories collected from citizens of Philadelphia with the movements of the characters from the classic Academy Award-winning film.” Presented by the Van Cougar Theater Company at The Bushwick Starr – and just extended for another week. 8PM, see additional shows here.
