New York City's finest improvisers join forces with the city's finest poets in a unique format: part comedy, part poetry, part theater, part UNPREDICTABILITY. It all begins with an exquisite corpse (aka poem) written collaboratively by the audience. After that the improvisers delve in, building a world around the themes and imagery of the poem, populating it with a cast of characters who are funny, tragic, and in between. Fueling the proceedings is the work of published poets, national slam champions, and up-and-comers from around the world. (Among the cast are performers and poets featured on This American Life, the Onion, and Chicago's Second City.) The whole shebang ends with the performance of a poem inspired by the show and written on the spot.
Seeing You is an immersive experience underneath New York City's High Line park. At once narcotic and eye-opening, the show is the result of a bold collaboration between Randy Weiner, Ryan Heffington, and Cantora (Will Griggs and Nick Panama), featuring environmental storytelling by David Gallo and costume design by Desi Santiago.
Uncle Abram: A Reconstructed Uncle Vanya, an American retelling of the Russian classic, is set in the Reconstruction South. Centered on a former plantation in south-central Missouri, this adaptation combines Native American and African-American influences that both heighten and intensify the original Chekhovian text. The backdrop, being one of the most progressive periods in American history, instills a hope for what is possible, along with the awareness of the delicacy of social progress.
Uncle Abram awakens audiences' spirit for a better tomorrow and tests their fortitude by asking this question: What are you willing to sacrifice to change the world?
