Last night during the curtain speech for RoosevElvis (Re-MX’D) at New York Live Arts, we shared what our $10,000 grant from the NEA has translated to in box office income, compensation to artists, and audience numbers–and we’re inviting our colleagues to do the same.
After sold-out performances in London, Boston, Minneapolis, and Michigan, we are thrilled to be bringing RoosevElvis back to New York for a one-night-only performance on March 16, specially re-imagined for New York Live Arts’ Live Ideas festival.

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.

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.
