Cecily and Gwendolyn's Fantastical...
Thurs - Sat April 17 - 19, 2014, 8:00 pm
$18, advance tickets recommended
Improvisational theater like you have never seen it. Karen Getz and Kelly Jennings are expert improvisers who, after a national Fringe Festival tour, are bringing Cecily and Gwendolyn's Fantastical... to New York! For de Arts is proud to present the New York premiere.
Cecily and Gwendolyn are two time traveling anthropologists who traipse through time streams to study and learn from different cultures. After they have gained enough data for their work, they will take their findings back to the 1800's where the Royal Geographic Society so rudely rebuffed them for being women, and therefore not worthy of the work, or the Society. You've never had so much fun breaking the 4th wall!
We'll bring the dance, you bring the salad
Fri & Sat April 25 & 26, 2014, 8:00 pm
$20, or $10 for those who bring a handmade item or homemade goods to trade in the marketplace
Calamity Co Dance in collaboration with Fresh Peach Dance will present Potluck: We'll bring the dance, you bring the salad: a dance-centric modern & pop variety show of works in various stages of progress by dancers, actors, musicians, comedians, film makers, with a focus on the multi-talented and collaborative efforts between forms.
All audience members are invited to be part of our exchange as we dig into the economics of access around movement-based theater. Audience members will engage in direct conversation and creative dialogue surrounding the questions: "How is dance meaningful? What does it cost and what is it worth?"
Before and after the performance, local artists and anybody else who wishes to share will come together to form a marketplace for attendees to trade ideas and goods.
Calamity Co Dance is a Boston-based dance performance and production group that believes that art is an everyday and everyperson event.
Fresh Peach Dance creates movement-based social justice theatre with an emphasis on issues affecting queer communities in and around New York City.

The Capital Campaign
In 2000, WOW
launched its first large-scale fundraising effort, a capital campaign
to help us buy and renovate our theater. The City of New York has sold the tenants of 59-61 East 4th Street the
building for $1!
The caveat: That we raise the funds to
renovate the building, and bring it up to code. WOW’s share of renovation costs is about $200,000. As
we have survived solely on box-office sales for 25 years, this is more
money than we’ve ever had or needed in the past.
When we do
succeed in securing these funds, WOW will own its own permanent theater
space in a completely renovated building.
One of the most
exciting aspects, which we have achieved, is the addition of a functional 24/7
self-service elevator! Yet to come is an ADA approved accessible bathroom, and dare we say air-conditioning?!
We have raised more than 2/3 of the total, but are not there yet! In order to make this possible, we urgently need your financial help! No
donation is too small or too large, and any amount will help us ensure
that theatre by women and/or by transgender people continues to thrive and be ever-increasingly accessible.
WOW Cafe Theater
is located at 59-61 East 4th Street
on the Fourth Floor.
between Bowery and 2nd Avenue in the Lower East Side of Manhattan, New
York City, USA.
We now have a 24/7 available elevator for our building!
WOW Cafe Theatre is a member of Fourth Arts Block (FAB)
only cultural district in Manhattan.
