Wistaria by Jeremy Goren
John Brown’s body lies a-moulderin’ in the grave. The Devil’s on the loose. I had the jerks. Glory, glory… Part of an ongoing investigation into the past and present of the United States of America, Wistaria moves into on a dark patch on the canvas of Goren’s 2012 work, You Will Make A Difference, exploring this country’s transitional moments and the currents obscured beneath the mainstream and asking: How did we get here? Where are we? What’s next?
Derek Spaldo, Stephanie Eiss, and Rishika Mehrishi worked with Jeremy Goren on You Will Make A Difference, developed at CAVE home of LEIMAY in 2012. Jenna Kirk and Goren have worked together for the past three years in Terra Incognita Theater.
And We Shall Never Speak of This Again by AliveWire Theatrics
And We Shall Never Speak Of This Again is staged encounter between poem, ensemble, and audience, based on the new poem of the same name by the language poet Michael Gottlieb. The poem is, in the words of the critic Steven Zultansky, a “wild mash up” of found language that is hilariously sourced from such disparate sources as those priceless email spam headers poorly translated from Russian, to the oddly compelling lists of ominous medical side effects which accompany every happy TV commercial for the latest pill, the one that will solve all our problems.
And We Shall Never Speak Of This Again appears in Michael Gottlieb’s latest book, DEAR ALL, just published by Roof Books.
The Joy of Cooking with Sybil by Alex Franz Zehetbauer
The Joy of Cooking with Sybil is a live cooking show in which four performers, each named Sybil, experience the joy of cooking as they ascend into total madness. Grotesque clowning, cannibalism, and voluptuous songs await you on primetime Foody TV. You’ll be dying to go home and whip up one of Sybil’s remarkably innovative recipes.
