The Performance Project @ University Settlement:

Since 2007, The Performance Project has been offering local young artists and professional emerging artists opportunities to connect, create and publicly present new work. We support artists who are interested in how live art can heal, empower and activate. The artists we work with commit to organizational and creative practices that promote trust, imagination and power-sharing. Our incubator for the next generation of citizen artists is fueled by our distinct, yet connected, cohorts: the Artist-in-Residence Program, The Performance Project Fellowship Program for Early Emerging Artists, our Community Arts and Culture Councils for Public Housing Residents and our annual Performance-Making Intensive for Young Artists && Leaders. We also host other community programs and dynamic guest artists seeking an affordable and supportive opportunity to self-produce their work.

Voyage de Ouf by Sylvaine Hinglais is an inventive theatrical production with a mosaic of allegorical skits, each with its own color, humor and emotion. The music is live, original, and contemporary, evoking the magic of soaring dreams. 

The word OUF is French verlan (a cool Francophone slang) for the word FOU (crazy) that is pronounced backwards! 

Ouf are on the train. Ouf wait for a bus, a truck, a boat. Ouf walk straight ahead. They come from everywhere, without knowing where they are going. Ouf feel violence and the need for love intimately intertwined. Some sleep at a beach campsite, others at refugee camps. Some dream of a lost face, others of being able to eat. All hope to find a place in the sun. In the sun? But as the earth turns, the sun moves constantly. So, when do we get there? 

Performed in French with English titles.

A PLAY ABOUT DREW CAREY  | Open: 12/13/16 Close: 12/14/16
A PLAY ABOUT DREW CAREY is a new play by Philip Santos Schaffer that uses television star and iconic pasty-man Drew Carey as a jumping off point for discussing popular culture, the power of laughter, and the playwright’s mother. Join Ryan, Colin, Wayne, and Drew for an evening of improv, music, and self-aware meta-theatre. Even I’m a character in the play! Shit. I mean, um, the playwright is a character in the play. And boy is he talented.
