Target Margin Theater

This 45-minute evening of theatre will examine the experience of being a female-presenting, Eastern-European, queer immigrant performer in the US. What exactly is it to be untrained? Why is untrained considered unattractive? Through a mixture of movement, monologue, drag and sound, this piece will attempt to make the audience reconsider what ugly means to them. Define ugly.
What are Petri Projects?
The TEAM’s Petri Projects program was launched in 2017. Its goal is to foster a pipeline of inquiry and development into new work led by artists in our community. This program provides funding, rehearsal space, and producing support to seedlings of new plays. The Petri Projects are a laboratory in which artists receive support and also vital feedback that sheds light on the work’s integrity.
Support for the Petri Projects Program is provided by the Axe-Houghton Foundation and the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.
