VINEGAR TOM
By Caryl Churchill
Directed by Carlos Armesto
Presented by Rutgers Theater Company
In association with Theatre C

VINEGAR TOM is an episodic story with songs chronicling 17th-century rural women who dare to be out-of-step with English society, and are consequently accused of witchcraft. Originally intended to have songs interspersed through the action, Caryl Churchill’s searing critique of society’s attack on women is vividly reimagined as a rock concert. In our production, Carlos Armesto has guided a band of Disruptors to mount the play as part of a concert performance.  As the #MeToo movement gains strength, the impact of Caryl Churchill’s piece feels completely relevant and conveys a powerful story that resonates today.

FARMED
By Trevor Bachman
Presented by THE Parsnip Ship
In collaboration with Theatre C, Long Island City Artists, and Bushwick Book Club

FARMED is a concert and interview series inspired by George Orwell’s Animal Farm. Through a suite of songs and deep community partnerships, FARMED conducts interviews with leaders of grassroots movements. Highlighting revolutions happening in cities around the United States, the interviews are set to music by Trevor Bachman and his company of singer/musicians. A local community choir is engaged from each city in which we perform to sing the piece in tandem with the core artists. FARMED events culminate in an evening of songs sung by an earth-shaking choir of voices, interviews with local organizers, and a performance in front of a live studio audience. All concerts are recorded for podcast.  Apropos to today, the theme for this concert is Voting Rights. With special guest Suraj Patel.

RETRO FACTORY Presents- REVISIT: 1983
Co presented with Daniel Nardicio Productions

We set out with a goal to bring back elements from an era of the past, to relive moments from a specific time and place, but to also change it to reflect our story- a story that isn’t told or seen. This concept was brought to life with live music videos with a queer twist and with conscious effort to extend a welcoming hand to the underrepresented within the LGBTQ spectrum. Free to be and free to express- with an 80’s twist, our pride event was a success. Revisit:1983 is an intimate remount of our bang out 1980s queer dance party, with a recreation of one of our immersive performances, and a preview of one from our next event. Experience the excitement of our 1983 bash in close quarters with our rad DJ David Scott and enticing dancers.
