Open: 03/07/19- Close: 03/31/19 A Jewish Joke
Bernie Lutz is a curmudgeonly Jewish comedy screenwriter from MGM, who comes up against the Communist blacklist in 1950’s Hollywood. Now, he has to decide what’s more important – his friends, or his livelihood? Armed with stories about the great era of Jewish humor, this poignant solo dramedy is about one American’s fight against one of the darkest moments of the mid-20th century. A Jewish Joke began in San Diego and has toured regionally with critically-acclaimed engagements in Chicago, St. Louis, Louisville, and New Haven. A Jewish Joke was named “Best Drama” of the 2016 United Solo Festival, NY.

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
