Open: / / - Close: Open Run STANDARD TOYKRAFT'S CARDBOARD ROBOT BATTLE, EPISODE V, DISNEY BUYS THE FRANCHISE
A UNIQUE PUPPETRY EVENT
9 Contestants will build their own robot out of cardboard and packing tape. These are the only materials allowed!! They should paint and decorate their robots, but more importantly they create cardboard killing machines.

Robots should be of "vehicle" design, similar to the Mars Rover or other type machines. Contestants are not allowed to create humanoid robot costumes. No Robocops here! This will give an unfair advantage, and be more akin to the human sport known as "boxing".

The Cardbot Battle would not be complete without our celeb host, Ring Fembots, Inter-match shows, drink specials and so much more!


How does this crazy thing work?
2 Robots will enter the ring based on a "heavy weight- light weight" system. The winners will then proceed to a Battle Royal Round where all the champions will battle one another.

Venue:
Standard Toykraft : 722 Metropolitan Avenue
Open: 06/30/16- Close: 07/31/16 STRUCK, A SERIOUS COMEDY ABOUT A (POSSIBLY) COSMIC EVENT AT NJ REP
After being hit by a bicycle while crossing an East Village intersection, Vera Resnick's simple predictable life is about to take an unexpected turn. Is it coincidence that brought Vera and the bicyclist together, or are greater forces at play?  STRUCK is a serious comedy about a possibly cosmic event that deals with the search for truth in the face of deception.  

Venue:
New Jersey Repertory Company : 179 Broadway
Open: 07/22/16- Close: 07/31/16 SWEAT & TEARS
Two men batter but don't draw blood. Two women weep but their faces stay dry. What happens when emotions are enacted not experienced? What makes the fake?

James and Jess are in a relationship. They both cry. She hits things more than he does, but he used to be a well-honed instrument of death. Jess found violence and rage in ballet, keening, orgone therapy. James searched for compassion in martial arts, street fighting, Mongolian wrestling. Apart, they asked four performers what it means to fight as men, to cry as women. Together, they’ve built a two-ring circus of gendered pain welling up with Sweat & Tears, two alchemies of salt and water, two body responses to the difficult work of feeling.

Open: 07/20/16- Close: 08/20/16 WHO MOURNS FOR BOB THE GOON?
Bob believes he is the Joker Henchman from the '89 Batman, Bob The Goon, and no one in his PTSD therapy group can convince him otherwise. The reason--the veterans in this special group also believe they are, or were, third tier comic book characters--the less heroic and most obscure. All begins to unravel when an ex-pilot, Langly, joins despite her belief that she is from the anime world, not a comic.
