Coney Artland Productions presents A Coney Island Of The Behind, an evening of poetry, storytelling, comedy, dance, burlesque, music and mayhem about Coney Island, starring Coney Artland founder Michael Schwartz, joined by his very special guests, some of the finest artists in New York, for the inaugural benefit to launch Coney Artland and its outreach wing: CAAMP (Coney Artland Art Makers Project). Schwartz is an award winning writer, actor, director, comedian, and singer/songwriter and will be performing some of the pieces that have been wowing audiences all over New York City and that will be included in his upcoming book.
CAAMP's missions are to give committed, brilliant, but unknown artists of all genres and mediums, the opportunity to be seen and heard by the public, and connect with other artists for collaboration; and also to use the arts to empower the disenfranchised, by turning them on to their own creative gifts. Become a citizen of the new nation of Coney Artland, where your imagination makes dreams come true. Come on out to magical historical Coney Island for this event you won't want to miss, and take a rollicking roller coaster ride your heart and behind will never forget.
