Bad Day in April by Elinor T. Vanderburg

About This Show

It’s a concert. It’s a dinner party. There’s a chaise lounge, half-empty cocktail cabinet, microphones, and plants everywhere. Set in a gentrified Brooklyn apartment in a post vax 2022, it’s “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf” meets “Rocky Horror Picture Show.” An experimental musical about class divides (real and fictional) within our own NYC, within the confines of our own living rooms, that through a kind of dissociative time-warp suggest history is not in fact a long march towards progress. Through this work, we will investigate class, race and cultural amnesia as we offer an apocalyptic and provocative vision of things to come.

Mare Nostrum Elements (MNE) is a Woodside based Dance and Theater non-profit dedicated to the expression of human experiences through dance, theatre and movement. Its mission is to both create and support the making of emotionally-driven stage productions that utilizes dance and theatre to enrich local communities.
Special thanks to our sponsors – LPAC, JCAL, Arts on Site, Flushing Town Hall and supporting venues Movement Research, Green Space & BAX.
