BLOOM BLOOM POW

BLOOM BLOOM POW
by Genevieve Simon
directed by Katherine Wilkinson
co-produced by Brittany Proia and Al Parker

Mag feels stuck in their small hometown, juggling an underwhelming queer scene and and overwhelming mother. Overworked museum employees try to find their joy in the face of late-stage capitalism. A dead horse won’t shut up about being dumped in the East River. And from the depths, an ancient (and cute! and terrifying!) being rises to take its rightful place.

Inspired by the Creature from the Black Lagoon, toxic algal blooms in the Great Lakes, and phone calls with your mom, this highly theatrical play de-centers humans, elevates microorganisms, and celebrates joy in the face of climate devastation.

BLOOM BLOOM POW was recently named a Finalist for the 2022 EMOS Ecodrama Playwrights Festival!

Premieres September 17 to October 2 in the Gural Theatre at The ART/New York Theatres. Tickets now on sale!

GALATEA

a site-specific production!

A trans love story set against the backdrop of a climate crisis. Loosely based on John Lyly’s 1585 play, Galatea tells the story of two young women from a village threatened with flooding who escape to the nearby woods disguised as boys and fall in love.

GALATEA will have it’s world premiere production August 25th-28th in Brooklyn Bridge Park on the Ferry Lawn of Pier 6. Showtimes will be announced shortly. Tickets are free and will be available to reserve through a link on this site a few weeks before the show. You can now purchase premium seats through our crowdfunding campaign at indiegogo.

GALATEA will be a low-waste production using sustainable energy sources with design by Alejandro Fajardo and Willa Piro.

We will be performing on the Ferry Lawn of Brooklyn Bridge Park at Pier 6, right across from where the Ferry comes in.

GALATEA was developed by Lark Play Development Center, Oregon Shakespeare Festival and WP Theater. Galatea received a workshop production as part of WP Theater’s 2018 Pipeline Festival. This production was made possible through generous support from The NYC Women’s Fund for Media, Music and Theatre by the City of New York Mayor’s Office of Media and Entertainment in association with The New York Foundation for the Arts and sponsorship from the Flea Theater.

LA PALOMA PRISONER

LA PALOMA PRISONER
by Raquel Almazán
directed by Estefanía Fadul
Produced by The La Paloma Prisoner Project in association with La Lucha Arts

A multi-disciplinary play about the reclamation of identity by women in the Colombian prison system. Based on the true story of a group of incarcerated women selected as beauty queen contestants at the Buen Pastor prison in Bogotá, this new play interweaves the ritualistic journey of a “parade of prisoners” within Colombia’s social, political, and spiritual history. The play centers on an infamous woman nicknamed “La Paloma” who transcendentally soars beyond physical and societal barriers to avenge the raped women of Bogotá. Her actions revolutionize the women’s lives, Bogotá’s prison society, and the world beyond its walls.
