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.
"Kiss Punch Poem is a rare find... uproarious and heartfelt." – Time Out Chicago
"[KissPunchPoem] celebrates the fresh and surprising associations that are generated by both improv and poetry." - The American Reader
"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.

Yara Arts Group, which typically builds its theater productions on first-hand research and workshops in Ukraine, has chosen to replace its upcoming production of "Dark Night Bright Stars," a play based on the friendship of a Ukrainian painter with an African-American actor in 1858, with Hitting Bedrock, a new work based on first-person testimonials of refugees from Donetsk and people stranded there. The company has conducted interviews over the past two years with young adults in Donetsk, who initially told of their dreams for a new life, but now describe either the rigors of refugee life in communities they have fled to or the hardships of life in the city if they have remained. The playscript combines these interviews with poetry and monologues by Serhiy Zhadan, the most popular writer of the post-independence generation in Ukraine.
Writer/director, Elia Schneider is known for hauntingly visual productions that transcend language with strong imagery and a dreamlike fresco of movement and design. In Judgement on a Gray Beach, themes of exile and totalitarianism are explored by a condemned man--he knows not for what-- on a beach populated with ten antiheroes who fully comply with absurd laws and obey nonsensical orders. Will he escape or return for punishment?
Food is a prism to look into love and sex, conflict and life in the six short plays of A la Carte: a Feast of New Plays. Short works of various genres by Allan Knee, Dana Leslie Goldstein, Laurie Graff, Laura Hirschberg, Gary Giovanetti and Scott C. Sickles will be presented.
The evening's setting gradually morphs from a magical dreamscape to a realistic kitchen in the course of this unified evening, which weaves plays of disparate subjects into a thematic flow. It begins with a haunting play by Allan Knee set in Port Authority and ends with a tender tale of generational love by Dana Leslie Goldstein that is set in a mother's kitchen. The idea is to start in a place of hunger and then have courses (fish, eggs, popcorn, and finally dessert). Throughout the evening, food motifs are used to examine the daily struggles of life and the social and personal issues behind them.
Hilarious' is the only way to describe The Male Intellect: An Oxymoron. In the show Robert Dubac embarks on a different mission. This time he's in pursuit of the holy grail of male/female relationships. The answer to the age old question, "What do women want?" And with help of five bonehead chauvinists and his feminine side he miraculously comes up with the answer. All while drinking a beer. It's 80 minutes of riotous comedy and misguided advice on the never-ending babble of the sexes.
