Open: 10/18/14- Close: 11/22/14 Buzz
The US premiere of BUZZ by Benjamin Kunkel (n+1 co-founder and best-selling author), directed by Lian Walden.

BUZZ follows the efforts of a pregnant woman and her playwright boyfriend to rid their apartment of the flies infesting the outside world. Funny and harrowing, it's a fast-paced story of love and art in a time of global warming. This site-specific production is set in a Gowanus Brooklyn loft.

"It's like human is the new dinosaur."

"Won't they need art, in the future? Maybe they'll have forgotten how to mix oil paints, they've forgotten musical notation, nobody's even heard of digital video.

Come sail the high seas with The Pumpkin Pie Show! An outbreak of norovirus quickly spreads through the passengers and crew onboard a luxury cruise-liner, including the captain, cutting short this sunny sojourn through the tropics. But before the ship can dock at the nearest port, tensions escalate amongst the frantic passengers. The foundation of civil society quickly deteriorates—dividing everyone onboard into two separate camps: those who are sick and those who aren’t. As the ship veers far off course and the number of ill passengers rises, one family must fight for their survival onboard this sun-and-blood drenched cruise into madness.

Un Lieu de Vie is an experiential piece that is loosely based on the 1917 Jean Cocteau - Erik Satie - Pablo Picasso collaboration of the ballet Parade. It represents the collective memory of Erik, an eccentric, memory-starved, and lonely New York artist who seeks glimpses of the past while wandering the streets of Manhattan. Through Erik's rumination, we are transported to specific locales at various stages of his life. We experience Erik's memories through the clamor of sounds, sights, and rhythms that embolden him to fulfill his destiny. Performed in English & French
