Open: 09/28/19- Close: 09/28/19 THE TALL BOY - A TALE OF REFUGEE CHILDREN
 

The Tall Boy is set in occupied Germany in the aftermath of WW II.  An American relief worker tells the story of three orphaned boys, Czech, Polish and Italian aged 15, 14 and 12 who are dumped at a displaced persons camp for “unaccompanied children”.  But the boys are GI mascots – they were swept up by US Army units during the war.  They wear cut-down US Army uniforms and speak English in accents learned from the soldiers who befriended them, and they are desperate to get to America to be reunited with their Army buddies.  But the US isn’t welcoming refugees at this time, and only one boy has a soldier who is committed to adopting him - but that soldier happens to be black.

Open: / / - Close: Open Run The Talmud
Based on The Talmud and Kung-Fu films, Meta-Phys Ed.'s THE TALMUD is a genre-bending performance that draws from a century of Chinese martial arts cinema, and, a single chapter of The Talmud-a 5th century text of Rabbinic Judaism. Featuring innovative production design, live Kung-Fu movie cinematography and choreographed Talmudic debate, THE TALMUD is a confounding exploration of sacred wisdom and how ancient traditions survive the dangerous journey across generations.

Presented by TARGET MARGIN THEATER in association with META-PHYS ED, directed by Jesse Freedman. THE TALMUD will play a three- week limited engagement at THE DOXSEE @ Target Margin Theater (232 52nd Street, Sunset Park, Brooklyn).

Open: 09/19/19- Close: 09/29/19 THOUGHTS & PRAYERS
"Thoughts & Prayers" is a new dance-theatre work with a palpable activist heart. Through a gripping exploration of America’s relationship with tragedy, catastrophe, and loss, this thought-provoking world premiere aims to harness the power of hope, individual action, and a call for change. Following each show, audience members and community activists are invited to discuss the next steps to create change.

Through this new dance-theatre concerto of equal parts music, movement, and theatre, we take a journey with Dana and Felix, as the couple experiences five Disasters. In a dramatic mix of original, virtuosic music, partnering, dialogue, and unique staging, six musicians (woodwinds and strings) are active participants in the performance.
