Dance Performance | Sundays on Broadway: Dance in Performance


Malcolm-x Betts’s Nigga at Sundown will be performed as an improv solo. Come witness. Factress and Dance Explosion! return to Sundays on Broadway. Today’s headlines mixed with yesterday’s blood, and plenty of old costumes, the show’s mix of movement and madness will delight and horrify. Lucy Sexton (Factress) is joined by Laurie Berg and Heidi Dorow (Dance Explosion!), with Lori E. Seid (Production Overlord). Sick Sad World is a collaboration between poet and performance-maker Iris McCloughan and choreographer Jessie Young. Combining sensation-driven choreography with blurred fragments of speech, character, and plot, the work presents a world of mysterious signifying objects: a silk slip, a single high-heeled boot, a lone microphone on a spindly stand. Beginning as a pas de deux and ending as a folie à deux, Sick Sad World creates a foggy, constantly shifting landscape of movement and text.

Play | Cockroaches: Momma Was a Monster


Emma Catherine Schillage's play is a Southern Gothic dark comedy. It tells the story of three sisters as they deal with the fallout of their mother's most recent suicide attempt. Momma has been acting strange since returning home from the hospital, causing oldest daughter, Jenny, to come home from college, middle child Charlie, to act out, and youngest child, Sissy, to follow in her mother's footsteps. As Momma becomes less and less human, the sisters must learn how to care for themselves and each other before it is too late. Cockroaches explores how we create monsters, deal with them, punish them, and learn from them in the wake of disaster.
