JAIL BREAK "The Resurrection of Punk" returns Saturday, November 16th, and this Fall the inmates who attend the festival and fill the Old City Jail with their artwork and crafted goods, with their comedy and choreography, their music and their fashion are collaborating like never before to resurrect the spirit of PUNK! The locally imagined, locally constructed and locally governed music and arts festival of Charleston is embracing the pastime of Punk and and its celebration of unabashed expression, commitment to the do-it-yourself lifestyle and passion-driven rebellion. Like the pioneers of Punk who forged some of the most evocative progressions in music, art, literature, dance, film and activism, the inmates are running the show, without boundaries. The music will be more diverse, the dance bolder, the fashion more excessive, the artisans market more interactive, the artists exhibit will be raw and original, and the comedy returns with no-holds-barred. Look for surprises throughout the jail as never-before-seen installations line every floor, and experience the first original, collaborative performance piece of the festival, entitled Punk: Art Untethered, an In-Your-Face Interface of Movement, Light and Sound. Conventions will be broken and the Old City Jail will lend itself to the community and the chaos of creation unlike ever before.
