New York City's finest improvisers join forces with the city's finest poets in a unique format: part comedy, part poetry, part theater, part UNPREDICTABILITY. It all begins with an exquisite corpse (aka poem) written collaboratively by the audience. After that the improvisers delve in, building a world around the themes and imagery of the poem, populating it with a cast of characters who are funny, tragic, and in between. Fueling the proceedings is the work of published poets, national slam champions, and up-and-comers from around the world. (Among the cast are performers and poets featured on This American Life, the Onion, and Chicago's Second City.) The whole shebang ends with the performance of a poem inspired by the show and written on the spot.
Cellist Julian Schwarz and Pianist Marika Bournaki will make their first appearance after capturing the 1st prize at the Boulder International Chamber Music Competition "The Art of the Duo" last month.

The Hummm explores the soundscape of Chekhov's Three Sisters and selected short stories. Based on the belief that vibration carries meaning, the piece uses sound as the driving force to unpack the subtlety and musicality of Chekhov's most lonely women.
Featuring four actresses, the show is set in a post-apocalyptic future where all the military men have died and only the women remain. Humming, whining, whispering, clamoring — this show wraps the audience in a 'Chekhovian polyphony,' where the chords are made of ecstasy, anguish, and perpetual disillusion. Incorporating a wide range of music and media, featuring a live DJ, and intensified by stylistic choreography, The Hummm creates an unprecedented aural and visual experience of the Three Sisters.

My Name Is Gideon: I'm Probably Going To Die, Eventually is a new one-man show by Gideon Irving, an unconventional theatrical couchsurfing troubadour.
Gideon Irving has been biking, rollerblading and driving from one town to the next for the past five years, performing and residing in the homes of perfect strangers. Now, he is inviting audiences into his own living room on the NY stage, bringing them "Stove Top Folk" – his unique blend of songs accompanied by variety of whimsical instruments, stories, and underwater levitation. The show has been developed over the course of 500 performances in living rooms around the world and makes its American debut after a successful run at the 2016 Edinburgh Festival Fringe.
Conceived and performed by legendary downtown theater maker Anna Kohler, directed by Caleb Hammond, and featuring renowned performance artist Hapi Phace, Mytho? immerses the audience in a unique sensory experience with aromas, three dimensional sound and media projection by Shaun Irons and Lauren Petty.
If a modern day fairy tale is a dream come true, then whose dream does it belong to and at what cost? Four actors set out to wrestle to the stage the true story of American Dad, Jeremiah Heaton, who planted a flag in the African desert to make his daughter a real Princess. They attempt to expose this modern day fairy tale's roots in systemic racism and white privilege. What follows is an outrageous, inappropriate and sometimes painful confrontation with their own bias as they take the journey to a new story.
Ready Or Not Here I Come is a story about the choices that we make and the consequences of those choices. We can easily say that this play is about the rapture, but its alot more to it. It is more about what leads up to the rapture and what happens after the rapture.
Ms. Jenkins is the nosy neighbor who knows everything about everybody. She takes the audience into the personal lives of three families and we witness as they either choose to accept or reject Christ.

Time No Line is a performance work presented as a live memoir, based on John Kelly's 40 years of journaling. This solo piece constructs a nonlinear narrative through physical movement, video projections, music, historic texts, and live drawing. Its main theme is the way Kelly's life and work unfolded and intertwined with significant cultural and political events, including the East Village performance art scene of the 1980s, the AIDS epidemic, the culture wars, and gentrification. The show uses the experiences of an individual to create a shared collective experience as an antidote to cultural amnesia and erasure. Kelly himself is a survivor who remains a part of New York's evolving cultural landscape.
