With huge loses under the circumstances, owner of Casa Patas Martín Guerrero said: “To reopen [Casa Patas] would be suicidal.  A debacle. To swim against the current only to end up drowning.” He added: “I have no choice but to shut down.

Since opening in 1983, Casa Patas has built a reputation as the best club in Spain to see this ancient, haunting art form.” But on March 13, 2020, Patas had to go. However, it seems all isn’t lost, faint though the glimmer of hope is, when Guerrero appended: “Who knows when this Spanish custom will be able to return once again after the pandemic.”

The two SoHo plywood mural art projects, SoHo Social Impact and Art to Heart, were a creative response to the vandalism and loss of property that occurred in that NYC downtown neighborhood in early June. However, those murals, with messages of hope, healing, beauty and Black Lives Matter, have themselves been looted. Transcendent and transient. . .

The new digital Immediate Tragedy premiered online Friday, June 19 on The Soraya Facebook page, and Saturday, June 20 at the Martha Matinee on the Graham Company’s YouTube Channel.
