As part of Emerging Artist Theater's New Works Series, Racoco presents "Slaughter on Nth Avenue," a snappy Broadway-style dance number inspired by journalist Glenn Greenwald, Kurt Jooss's dance and war parable The Green Table, Mel Brooks, and Busby Berkeley, romping through terrorism, troop deployment, indefinite detention, illegal wiretapping, cherry-picked alliances, Islamophobia, waterboarding, high-level immunity, embedded journalists, prosecution and persecution of whistleblowers, assassination of citizens, spying, and public powerlessness and ambivalence.

Racoco shares the program with other work-in-progress (click on ticket link to see each evening's lineup). Each evening is followed by an audience feedback session with the directors.

With design by Stephanie Beck

Click here for daily lineups.

Spoke the Hub's third GOWANATHON is a multi-faceted, arts "share-a-thon" where adults and kids can immerse themselves in an inspirational weekend of dance, theater, music, arts, crafts, cabarets, writers reading, experimental film and dance parties to help raise money for a new stairwell in the Gowanus Arts building on Douglass Street.

There's No Law is a​n improvisational performance collective drawing inspiration from Ruth Zaporah's Action Theater form. Journeying in the unknown through movement, sound, and narrative, the work scratches away the dull patina of daily life to reveal the glow of madness and pathos just below the surface.
