Bushwick was called home by locals long before any magazine called it hip. Bamboo in Bushwick explores gentrification in this suddenly trendy neighborhood from divergent angles.
As a group of old friends gather for a round of dominoes, outside forces converge on their street corner. In an alternate reality inspired by the psychedelic murals that have taken over many walls in the neighborhood, a turf war breaks out on the icy tundra. Is there room in Brooklyn for both penguins and polar bears?
When your community is threatened, every block is worth fighting for.
Bamboo in Bushwick is part of Working Theater's Five Boroughs / One City Initiative. The play was developed in partnership with Ridgewood Bushwick Senior Citizens Council (RBSCC) and with members of Bushwick Salvation Army Community Center, El Puente Bushwick, Make the Road New York, and the general Bushwick community.
Composer Michel van der Aa combines classical instruments, voice, electronics, actors, video, apps, and even web browsers in his multidisciplinary work. His broad musical vocabulary embraces these elements alongside film, stage direction, and the written word, allowing him to create works that are as visual as they are aural.
This dynamic young creative voice comes to the Armory for the North American premiere of his latest creation, a chamber opera for soprano and 3D film based on the life and work of South African poet Ingrid Jonker. Soprano Miah Persson sings live, combined with replayed loops of herself and the voice of Baritone Roderick Williams on film to create haunting musical passages and ensembles. This groundbreaking work combines live action, innovative techniques of interactive film, and inventive music to consider human memory, the ways in which we reconstruct and deal with traumatic life events, and notions of individual realities
Written by Eve Wolf and directed by Donald T. Sanders, this multimedia production illuminates the controversial story of the 1894 treason conviction of Captain Alfred Dreyfus that had a decades-long reverberation in the political landscape of France and the rest of the world. The "Dreyfus Affair" evolved around the false arrest and imprisonment of the innocent Captain Alfred Dreyfus (1859-1935), a highly decorated French Jewish officer. Traumatic soul-searching ensued, and French society erupted into a fireball of anti-Semitism and political partisanship that called into question the very nature of French identity. Based on letters, diaries, memoirs, speeches, and accounts by the historical figures involved in the Dreyfus Affair, the poignant script includes text from Émile Zola's newspaper article "J'Accuse," unquestionably the most important piece of journalistic writing that transformed the private plight of Alfred Dreyfus into an "affair" of national and international significance.

It not only entertains but also immerses the audience in a journey of transcendence and empowerment.
