Open: 02/26/19- Close: 04/07/19 ACTUALLY, WE’RE F**KED
In ACTUALLY, WE’RE F**KED, four millennials order take-out every Thursday, drink too much wine and argue over how to rescue the planet.  They know the world is a dumpster fire, and they’re the generation to fix it.  That is, until someone makes a life-changing announcement that challenges their beliefs, their relationships and whether babies should have their own Instagram accounts

Open: 03/04/19- Close: 03/24/19 Death Of A Driver
Sarah is an American engineer. Kennedy is an East African taxi driver. They strike up a friendship and embark on a journey to change rural Kenya building new roads. But when a disputed local election lands Kennedy in jail and threatens the work, Sarah questions the integrity of their alliance and wonders how well she knows the man she thought was her friend. Death of a Driver is a bracing examination of "doing good" abroad, the limits of understanding another person, and what happens when personal and political obligations collide.

Open: 02/07/19- Close: 02/24/19 MEDUSA VOLUTION
Expressed through grotesque storytelling, the Japanese Dance of Darkness (Butoh), and a chorus of women representing the feminine archetypes born from the Medusa myth, Medusa Volution places Medusa front, center and on trial; presenting a vivid enquiry into the maligned Monster Woman. The trial sprawls through time, calling for the testimony of contemporary women as well as their mythological sisters, like Salome and Eve. As we explore the narratives of so many women, we redefine the stories of their power, agency and pleasure; making visible how we may be complicit in one another’s oppression and how we might support one another’s liberation. Today, can we look Medusa in the eyes?

Devised by (and featuring) Chandler Eliah Eason, Julia Cavagna, Julia Gu, Kayla Juntilla, Irina

Open: 02/22/19- Close: 03/17/19 SISTAS ON FIRE: A NEWSICAL
A musical revue that examines pressing social issues from an African-American female perspective. 

New York, NY - The personal becomes the political when passionately-opinionated African American women speak their minds on the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, Black Lives Matter, missing black women and girls, black-on-black crime, and male/female relationships in a soul-stirring mix of song, dance, poetry, and prose. The interrelated dramatic monologues range from tragedy to comedy in a “newsical” revue that examines pressing social issues from an African-American female perspective. Sistas on Fire! A Newsical uses theatre to provoke thought, encourage social activism, and build bridges that cross race, class, gender and culture. In short, it's For Colored Girls for the New Millennium.
