Production History

Daughters Of Lot  | Open: 02/23/12 Close: 03/04/12
Brain Melt Consortium is proud to present the world premiere of DAUGHTERS OF LOT as part of Frigid New York 2012. A modern-day burlesque act with a twist, the evening's entertainment begins as a sexy and silly retelling of an ancient story, until the burlesque performers do a trick that requires more than flexibility. Atlanta, the headliner, and her Sodomette sidekicks summon the ancient characters of their tale into reality, leading a couple of B.C. teenagers on a tour through a dazzling modern world that is part Brecht, part circus, and two parts Suicide Girls. Written by Alexis Roblan and directed by Rachel Kerry, DAUGHTERS OF LOT is a titillating, perplexing, and vexing exploration of the ways women are taught to be "women."

The Sandman's Coming  | Open: 02/21/13 Close: 03/02/13
Lulled by nursery rhymes, a man’s thoughts are haunted by what separates his identity from his addiction. Life's beauty entangles with the heavy security of his addiction's lifeblood when what is real is only perceived through touch. Flashbacks fade between dreamlike and authentic, familiar and outlandish; but can his skin’s memory be trusted within the “big empty space” of his drug use? Dance, multi-media, and text give a chilling look into the world of an addict.

THE SANDMAN’S COMING is conceived and directed by Molly Ballerstein. The cast includes Anya Gibian, Nelson Patino Jr., and Lantie Tom. The production team includes choreographer Dana Boll, stage manager Joel Rudzinski, associate producers Kristin Dwyer and Rachel Kerry, with original music and sound design by Dede Booth.
