Open: 10/19/14- Close: 10/19/14 Any Size Mirror is a Dictator
Any Size Mirror is a Dictator is 156 hours of new music and text entwined with task-based choreography. Transposing ideation directly into performance as learning processes, decision-making procedures, and theory-to-form actualizations, Any Size Mirror is a Dictator is a structure about structures. The work is accompanied by a Book containing scores, systems, and notes.

The space is de-hierarchized; audiences are free to come and go and to roam the gallery over the course of each 6-hour performance. Two teams of performers work towards construction of each live performance. The first team, a “rehearsive” cast of performers, uses the opera Book, 41+ fragments and memorized choreographic tasks, text, and through-written music.

The Third Annual BEAT Festival in association with Kumble Theater present:
Draw the Circle - Written & performed by Mashuq Deen
Directed by Chay Yew

Draw the Circle is the hilarious and moving story of how a conservative Muslim family deals with a child who defies their most basic expectations of what it means to have a daughter - and one woman's commitment to unconditional love. Told entirely from the point of view of family and friends, yet it’s creatively performed by Deen himself. This unique show compassionately brings to life the often ignored struggle of a transgender individual's family.  

Mashuq Deen is an award-winning Brooklyn-based theater artist.

Open: 09/19/14- Close: 10/11/14 THE TWELFTH LABOR
Steeped in the epic realism of O’Neill, yet stylistically unique, The Twelfth Labor tells the story of a family struggling to survive at any cost. Esther, bereft of her husband, struggles mightily to keep her family afloat as they await their father’s return from the war. When her mentally handicapped daughter, Cleo, becomes pregnant Esther is forced to make a series of difficult decisions.

Through Cleo’s fragmented memories, prophetic dreams, and swirling language, we begin to understand the price she and her family have paid for a little dignity. All while they await the return of their long absent father, lost in the war, half a world away.

“The Twelfth Labor is based on my family’s history.
