We are thrilled to welcome musician, composer, performer and perfumer René Kladzyk to the Wythe Cinema on Wednesday, April 30th for a multi-sensory soirée. Under the moniker Ziemba, René creates stunning visual, auditory, and olfactory landscapes. Her new full-length album, ARDIS, is a feminist sci-fi adventure and multisensory experiment. It will be released sequentially throughout the spring and summer of 2019. For one night, a portal to Ardis will open at Wythe Hotel and give you glimpse into this world with the premier of visual song Lips 2 Lips; a collaborative creation of Ziemba, Colleen Marie Foley, Bad Taste, BCALLA, and more.
