Current Season

To The Things Themselves! explores an engagement with the performance moment in and of itself, while also exposing the cultural situated-ness of the performance actions. Movement, music materials, and actual physical objects are manipulated to at times emphasize their in-and-of-themselves object-ness, while at other times transforming into blatant representations.
In This Bridge Called My Ass six Latinx performers - Alvaro Gonzalez, John Gutierrez, Miguel Gutierrez, Xandra Ibarra, Nibia Pastrana Santiago, and Evelyn Sanchez Narvaez - map an elusive choreography of obsessive and perverse action within an unstable terrain of bodies, materials and sound. A formal logic binds the group and propels them to create a constantly transforming world where their togetherness retains autonomy to complicate the idea of identity. Clichéd Latin-American songs and the form of the telenovela are exploited to show how familiar structures contain absurdity that reveal and celebrate difference.
Im gonna need another one is a solo performance which troubles ideas of home as the place of origin and the authentic self. Using the theatrical gesture of a monologue, Rosenblit stands in as multiple figures: from a Sous Chef, to Chiron: from Greek mythology the almost-human-almost-god known for the wound on his animal leg, a Wheat Farmer, a Soldier, Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz, and a Compulsive Re-arranger of Furniture.
