Musical | Teacher! Teacher! or P.S. I Love You: The Dilemma of Educators


The story of the heavy hand of history on two teachers and a beleaguered principal. These educators teach against the background of the January 6th attempted coup, the desperate war in Ukraine, the constant threat of gun violence and the terrible mistakes of the Supreme Court. They see a growing consciousness in their students and a desire to take action. The educators, who endure the dilemma of teaching standard lessons in a time of crisis, now face the prospect of being asked to carry a gun! Their students bring to the classroom the debates heard around the kitchen tables in their homes. The principal finds a place for activism in school through a vivid dream that is the turning point of the play. The musical also celebrates the joys of a good book report, the brilliance of a Mother’s Day poem, an eloquent essay blasting climate change, and the ultimate triumph of graduation.

Dance Performance | Slow Dance Project: Love Letters to Ness


Slow Dance Project is inspired by Yung Oh Le Page’s experiences as a caretaker providing support for his wife who has stage 4 metastatic breast cancer that has stripped away the use of everything below the waist. In the process of this care, he found so much beauty in the heartache. Specifically, there are moments of lift: from a bed; from a chair; from a vehicle. From these, comes the seldom-standing embrace, a gentle sway, a moment that can stretch time. The inspiration for this project came from jokingly humming kitschy slow songs during these moments.
