About the show

Abrons Arts Center presents Anna Kohler's new interdisciplinary performance piece exploring the relationship between muse and artist, subject and object, and what is at the center of the creative mind. More…

Conceived and performed by Anna Kohler and featuring performance artist Hapi Phace, 'MYTHO?' immerses the audience in a unique sensory experience with aromas, three-dimensional sound, and media projections. 'MYTHO?' is an unabashedly passionate celebration of Kohler's experience of both creating and consuming art.

Kohler evokes the artists who originally ignited her own sense of self as a creative person, and draws their work into the production's disciplined visual aesthetic.
