On Friday, August 17, HBO will open an interactive experience in New York City in celebration of Random Acts of Flyness – the new HBO late-night series from artist Terence Nance, that explores patriarchy, white supremacy and sensuality from a new, thought-provoking perspective. The two-day pop-up experience will explore themes and cultural idioms expressed in the six-episode season.
A fluid, stream-of-conscious response to the contemporary American mediascape, each episode of Random Acts of Flyness features a handful of interconnected vignettes, showcasing an ensemble cast of emerging and established talent. Creator, director and Random Acts of Flyness star Terence Nance and his collaborators weave together such themes as ancestral trauma, history, death, the singularity, romance and more, creating a television show like nothing seen before.
Guest stars include: Dominique Fishback (The Deuce), Whoopi Goldberg (The Color Purple), Gillian Jacobs (Love, Community), Ntare Guma Mwine (The Chi, The Knick), Adepero Oduye (Pariah, The Big Short, 12 Years a Slave), Natalie Paul (The Deuce) and Paul Sparks (Boardwalk Empire), among others.
The Random Acts of Flyness Experience will feature a variety of vignettes and installations that reflect themes and scenes represented in the series. Designed to celebrate black culture, the two-day experience will feature over five interactive elements including:
“Black Women Will Save Us All” Room – Recognizing the many Black Women who have and continue to make history
Sexual Proclivities of the Black Community – A re-creation of a bedroom set from a scene in the first episode which showcases a visual representation of nontraditional black love
Live Podcast Recording – A live recording of a podcast with the Random Acts of Flyness Creator and Director Terence Nance.
And much more..
After an exclusive VIP opening reception on Thursday, August 16th, the HBO Random Acts of Flyness Exhibit will open to the public on Friday, August 17th from 1:00 PM to 8:00 PM and Saturday, August 18th from 11:00 AM to 6:00 PM at 477 Broadway, New York, NY.
