As part of NYU’s response to COVID-19, large gatherings will not be taking place on campus throughout March, including events at NYU Skirball. Ticket holders to canceled or postponed events will be contacted by the box office.


Intertwining sly humor and raw carnality, Brazilian polymath (actor, playwright, director) Carolina Bianchi shares the stage with 16 naked men in an unrepentant meditation on the “Alpha Female.” A wry liturgy of bodies, LOBO (Wolf) marries fierce, sensual kaleidoscopic tableaux with a knowing commentary on women’s power. Turning the tale of Little Red Riding Hood on its head, Bianchi drolly forces the question: who is the wolf?

Since 2015, Carolina Bianchi has worked with Cara de Cavalo (Horse’s Face), a group of multidisciplinary and independent artists. Through eroticism, violence, and farce, her work involves practices that drive actors to extreme physical and emotional states. Among her most recent works are LOBO, Kill Me with Pleasure and The Magnificent Tremor. LOBO marks her North American debut.

Performed in Portuguese with English supertitles. Advisory: LOBO is appropriate for ages 18+
