The Room with Closets
You are a citizen of nowhere in a universe of closets. Journey between Argentina and the United States in this new, dance-theatre tale of a life divided. Experience joyous flights of fantasy and grim political reality. Arrive at a deeper understanding of life, love, human nature, and finding a place to belong when home won't let you stay.
Ball: A Musical Tribute to My Lost Testicle
When Max Wojtanowicz was diagnosed with stage 3 testicular cancer in January 2016, a friend told him to "conquer it, and then sing about it." Challenge accepted. Through storytelling and original songs about chemotherapy, community and courage, Ball is a show about laughing (and singing) in the face of darkness when life throws you a curve… ball.
