Production History

Outside/Input  | Open: 05/06/05 Close: 05/08/05
Outside/Input is an exciting new laboratory series dedicated to the development of emerging and established artists. With 3 prior public work-in-progress presentations, Outside/Input gave audience members the chance to participate in the making of art, which provocatively
challenges the boundaries of performance. See the final work-in-progress presentations in the Ontological Theater this May.

Program A:
Friday, May 6th at 7pm
Saturday, May 7th at 9m
Sunday, May 8th at 7pm

Annex
"The Fourth World (suspendida)" Multi-media live installation: a woman packs her memories of war and hardships and immigrates to America.

Temporary Distortion
"Last Year, The Universe...It Came To Me In A Dream" Isolated in one of Temporary Distortion's signature box structures, a man and woman explore the memories of an unrequited love through blank stares, static dialogue, stillness and songs.

Friday, May 6th at 9pm
Saturday, May 7th at 7pm
Sunday, May 8th at 9pm

2CP
"Days of Play" This is what happens when duck-duck-goose grows up and goes digital.

Temple Crocker & Annie Kunjappy
"veils/vestiges: the aesthetics of hidden things" Explores the metaphor of the body as a holding house, a complex and mysterious dwelling place that contains not only our expanding lungs and beating hearts, but the nuances of our dream life and the remembrances of our past.

31 Down
"That's not how Mahler died" Investigator Mike Sharpie falls prey to Alma Mahler's illicit darkening in a radio transmission event.

Proto-type Theater's Museum Of Dreams  | Open: 05/19/05 Close: 05/22/05
A six-hour performance installation (work-in-progress) that investigates the feverish affair of sleeping and questions our perception of waking using dance, circus and theater in a landscape of original music, industrial lighting and sculptural costumes.

Audience members are encouraged to come and go as they please – admission is good for the entire six hours with re-entry good for anytime during the show.

MUSEUM OF DREAMS is a fever dream of fantasy, where the line between real-time and dreamtime become so blurred that it is no longer clear what is real and what isn't. Countless psychologists, theorists, theologians, writers, neurologists and great thinkers have investigated the science and meaning of dreaming. What exactly happens in the brain and body while we sleep – and what do the dreams we experience mean to our waking lives? How certain can we really be that what we dream is merely a figment of our imagination and how convinced are we that our walking, interacting daily lives are reality?

William Shakespeare’s Haunted Pier  | Open: 10/29/05 Close: 10/31/05
An Interactive Halloween event featuring 20 performers leading audiences on a walking tour around Pier 25 and onto the docks of the historic Yankee Ferry. As the audience travels through the "haunted pier," characters such as Macbeth and the Witches, Hamlet, Caliban and Romeo & Juliet will appear, each speaking words penned over 400 years ago. Crowds will be lead through the Hall of Fairies from A Midsummer Night's Dream, examine Julius Caesar's wounds, dip toes into Ophelia's Riverbed of Death (Hamlet), journey through a Shakespearian Chamber of Darkness and dine at the table of Titus Andronicus.

There will be a special section of the pier for youngsters – where the action isn't quite so scary
