Around the World 2011

Be a part of this exciting adventure for our 4th ‘Around the World’.  Live, interactive productions in NYC and Berlin with performances from 9 other countries.  Buy tickets here for New York.

Berlin 20.00 – New York 2:00pm
(Berlin - 20/16 or 12/8 Euros // NY - $10)

Performed by live actors simultaneously in New York and Berlin through Skype, one woman tries to relate and connect to the world around her, using a laptop as the mode in which she communicates; a quest for human connection in the modern world.

Touching, funny, and familiar, this piece examines computer-mediated communication and the human need for connection- the evolution of humanity through technology. Through its inventive use of Internet technology, the piece simultaneously comments on its own theme and explores the artistic and personal applications of this technology, as it is more fully integrated into our communications, relationships, lives. Winner of the Jury prize at 100° Festival Berlin 2011.

It's the last night of the world and you're invited to a party!  The Virtual Dinner Party is an opportunity to share a real experience from a virtual setting between New York and Berlin. Audience and actors mingle together, sharing food and laughter, while the other side of the table sits 4000 miles away. The table becomes the stage, and together we will connect on what it is that we have, and what it is we stand to lose.

Audience members will be treated to a theatrical dinner where you are the guest of honor!  The Dinner Table seating ticket includes a Three Course Meal including: Appetizers and Snacks, Potato Leek Soup, Cheese Course, Desert and Plenty of wine! Dinner Table Seating is limited.  Please reserve by emailing:

(New York 9:30pm)
($10 includes After-Party with drinks)

What happens when a global network of strangers collaborate on an instant, completely unedited and uncurated script? Absurdity or profundity? The audience is the playwright, and online social networking her pen and paper. Two dudes with nothing much to say, each having just purchased a 40 oz. bottle of cool refreshing malt liquor, sit at a table. In front of them is a cell phone, and a computer screen. Dude #1 utters a sentence. The audience, observing these two guys via an online video streaming service, begin to send them text messages, tweets, emails, and facebook chats in a desperate, quick attempt to collaboratively dictate a script. The guys read the lines as they come in, in the order they come in. And if there are no lines coming in, they drink. The play is over when they finish their malt liquor.
