Non Consensual Relationships with Ghosts II
Friday & Saturday, June 16 & 17, 2017*
8pm
Tickets $15 in advance, $20 at the door

Written and Directed by Susana Cook
Original Music by Julian Mesri

Featuring: Mattie McMaster, Michael Burke, Hector Canonge, Dorrell Clark, Mistah Coles, Susana Cook, Moira Cutler, Michael Freeman, Kathie Horejsi, Marie Christine Katz, Annie Lanzillotto, Hjørdis Linn-Blanford, Jennifer Rodriguez, and Simba Yangala.

This was the story of a king who is actually a queen, who is sent in exile, imprisoned in Athens and found 45 years later in Argentina at a tomb contest. But then, major historical events disrupt the process revealing that nobody is dead.

The ghosts of totalitarian past return to haunt the story. The narrative that got us here no longer serves us. We have to respond to the urgency for resistance and survival, and create a theatrical language of dissent and pleasure. In this witty and funny magic realistic play, Susana Cook redefines presence, the energy of the people who inhabit our life, and the ghosts of our past following us everywhere.

*Also at the fabulous BAAD (Bronx Academy of Arts & Dance) on Saturday June 24th, 2017!
