New York's finest improvisers join forces with New York's finest poets in a unique format that is part comedy show, part poetry feature and completely unpredictable.
It all begins with an exquisite corpse written collaboratively, line-by-line by the audience beforehand. The improvisers then delve in, building an entire world around the themes and imagery of the poem and inhabiting it with a cast of characters that are wildly funny, heartbreakingly tragic, and everything in between.
Along the way, the show is fueled by the amazing work of published poets, national slam champions, and up-and-comers from around the country and across the globe, shaking the rafters and rousing souls with original poetry that is raw, personal and profound.
The whole show ends with the performance of a brand new poem written on the spot and inspired by the entire show. It's comedy, it's poetry, it's theater and art. It is everything you came to this New York to see.
The cast includes performers and poets with credits from This American Life, NPR, The Onion, The Second City, The Truth Podcast, Reductress and Story Pirates.

"Their performance took me back to the formative years of the slam. It was exhilarating." – Mark Smith (founder of Slam Poetry)
Bloowst windku, by choreographer Rebecca Davis, is a sculpture that is performed. The familiar is rendered strange as three performers shift with dream-like logic from basic pedestrian movement to highly abstracted forms within an equally mutable sound score by Zach Layton. Materials collected over three years are joined to create a structure that literally envelops the audience.

Using live feed video, rhythmic music, and minimalist choreography, Agrupación Señor Serrano creates a searing indictment of rampant consumerism and the speculative bubble. Brickman Brando Bubble Boom is an exuberant manifesto on the right to housing and the search for a home.
Founded in 2006, Agrupación Señor Serrano is a Barcelona-based performing arts company that combines theatre, dance, video-art, and interactive technologies to explore human aspirations and the abuse of power.

It was The War to End All Wars. It was a Christmas like no other. In Fields Where They Lay tells the incredible true story of the World War One Christmas Truce − the spontaneous ceasefire between British and German soldiers that began with the singing of Christmas Carols on the night of December 24th, 1914.
The play's extensive use of letters, diaries and newspaper accounts marks the 100th anniversary of the Truce by bringing this stirring and unsettling, hopeful and tragic story to life in the words of the men who lived it. These primary sources are interwoven with the personal stories of a small squad of British soldiers, through whose eyes we experience the horror of life, death and battle in the trenches and the wonder of a sudden outbreak of peace in the midst of one of the bloodiest and most senseless conflicts the world has ever seen.

The Winter of April, a Police Thriller partly inspired by the Gilgo Beach murders on Long Island in 2010, compares the fate of murdered sex workers with others who have been shadowed or forgotten by history, including those, like Ada Lovelace, who were at the forefront of science and technology. The play was written and structured by Ricardo Sarmiento Gaffurri from a concept by director Ramiro Antonio Sandoval and his Tabula RaSa NYC Theater & Performance Lab. It is mounted with ensemble acting, sophisticated audiovisuals and multimedia modeling. The piece protests society's tendency to tie sexual crimes to one perpetrator, when the individual is usually the tip of an iceberg--a global machine of human trafficking.
