Hello from post-Brexit London, where Rachel, Jess, Matty, and Nick joined our Scottish collaborators on Monday to begin rehearsals for Anything That Gives Off Light. It’s a surreal time to be here to say the least, working on a play exploring (among many things) collective and self-interest, the Scottish independence movement, and America’s second amendment.
Join us for a one-night-only sneak peek of our work-in-development PRIMER FOR A FAILED SUPERPOWER, featuring a teenage rock band from the Gowanus Music Club, and performances of new protest songs created for PRIMER by the TEAM and a multigenerational band of special guests.
Back by popular demand: we’re offering 3 Devising Within a Democracy workshops in both Boston and New York City this May/June, as well as a 2-hour workshop and discussion with our administrative TEAM on self-producing for artists and ensembles.
“Strange, charming and highly likable…a straight-ahead, full-tilt voyage through man- (and woman-) hood.” “Weirdly brilliant…surprisingly emotional…wildly entertaining.” PLUS: A limited number of seats and standing room have been released for our final 13 performances at A.R.T. Book now!
JUST ANNOUNCED: our latest collaboration with the National Theatre of Scotland, Anything That Gives Off Light, will make it’s world premiere at the Edinburgh International Festival in August 2016.
We’re headed back into the rehearsal room for Primer for a Failed Superpower (for which we are forming a multigenerational cover band), and we need your help to crowdsource the widest cross-section of protest songs possible.
The TEAM is looking for college students or recent grads for Spring/Summer internships in our Brooklyn office. Interns will work alongside company and staff members on production management, marketing and outreach, touring, video and press archiving, fundraising, and grants/donor management. We place a high priority on giving interns ownership of projects and tangible experience in the day to day administration of a small ensemble company.
Help us pack the house for Frank and Rachel’s shows at COIL 2016! Grab tickets to join us January 14 for CONFIRMATION and January 16 for THE HOLLER SESSIONS, and stay for drinks with us after!
This year was chock-full of celebration. RoosevElvis returned to NYC and began an international tour. We started a cover band. We celebrated a decade together. We even published a book! Help make 2016 just as spectacular by making a year-end donation! Whatever the amount, every dollar helps.
I am honored to be representing the TEAM this week in St Louis for the “28 Hour Plays,” for which playwrights and actors from around the country are joining with St. Louisans to write and perform in 80, one-minute plays in reaction to Mike Brown’s murder in Ferguson in 2014…In the last four days I have begun to understand for the first time something about what it is to be American. And it is beyond unsettling.
