For (give) Me
February 22nd and 23rd
Directed by Sara Zepezauer
Inspired by the non-linear ways humans cope with loss, For (give) Me uses stages of grief to show that our suffering leads to healing and offers us the truth that we are never completely alone.
This work is a series of connected pieces devised by members of Company Solaris with continuous motifs that comment on the cyclical nature of grieving.
February 22nd and 23rd: doors at 7pm, Show at 8pm

ABCIRQUE AND PLAY: SEE IT, TRY IT!
WITH THE MUSE
SUNDAY FEBRUARY 24TH FROM 4 TO 6 PM
On February 24th, watch NYC's finest circus troupe, ABCirque, juggle, flip, and fly high with aerial acrobatics! But that's not all; stick around afterwards because then it'll be YOUR turn to take center-ring! 45 minutes of show-time followed by 45 minutes of play-time with the pro's: take a swing in an aerial hammock, hula-hoop your heart out, juggle everything in sight, and then pose with the stars for the photographic proof you need to show off to your friends!
This is it, kids: you get to SEE IT then TRY IT! Stretch those wings; this is your BIG chance to fly away with the circus (just in time to head home for dinner with the fam, of course)

LISA GIOBBI MOVEMENT THEATRE
Four women. Four periods in history. All different stories- all the same story.
Marie Antoinette (Queen)
Anne Hutchinson (Puritan spiritual adviser)
Veronica Franco (Venetian courtisan)
Augustine (Charcot’s muse and patient)
DeThroWned is an intimate look at the challenges faced by independent, empowered and disenfranchised women who, once expressed, are murdered, exiled, and abused by a society and its disregard for their contributions.
A queen, a Puritan woman, a patient, and an exiled courtesan meet in this theatrical depiction of contradictions that cross cultural, economic and social lines.
Murder, trials, exile and objectification are seen through the lens of women’s stories throughout time...

ABCirque & Brendan Speltz & The Rhythm Method Present:
An immersive performance of Steve Reich’s 20th century minimal masterpiece of the same name, Different Trains includes electronics and a string quartet, accompanied by stunning cirque-style choreography.
Reich wrote the piece while contemplating his childhood train trips in the 1940’s between New York and Los Angeles. As a person of Jewish heritage, it occurred to him that similar train trips in Europe during that time had a very different and haunting implication. In each of the three movements, he explores America before WWII, Europe during the War, and again after WWII, with a soundscape of strings, pre-recorded voices, and sound effects that prove both profoundly devastating and ultimately hopeful.
