I Land

A performance event in which Anonymous Ensemble invites the audience to spend an evening on an island far from their daily lives, yet mysteriously inhabited by their inner lives. Straddling the line between a theatre show and a participatory event, this completely spontaneous, yet meticulously crafted piece investigates the evolution of our imaginations as we lead the audience on an expedition into an uncharted terrain of commonplace fantasies and wildly improbable realities.

The Return

The Return is a Rebetiko music adaptation of Euripides’s The Bacchae and is intercultural in both form and content.  Setting the narrative of the ancient play in Athens in the early 1990s, and interpreting the character of Dionysus as an enigmatic, Greek-American rock star named Acolyte, the piece explores issues of cultural colonialism, marginalization, appropriation, and xenophobia. Acolyte was born in Greece by a Greek mother and an American father.  But after his mother’s mysterious death, he disappeared and was raised in Queens, New York.  Acolyte’s pop music is heavily influenced by the Astorian Greek Rebetiko of his youth, the “Blues of Greece,” which he blends with American garage rock. When he returns to Athens for a concert tour, he stokes a cultural revolution.

Troop Troupe

Troop Troupe is a fictionalized USO show in the present moment that is revealed to be a reconstruction created by a future civilization based on digital archeology. It addresses the fetishization of warfare by our culture and our determination to characterize foreigners as enemies.

a Wonderland

Alice, a talented urban dreamer approaching middle age, is caught in a quagmire of diminishing potential, corporate insignificance and the mirage of celebrity. This is Lewis Carrol deconstructed by the mind of a modern, mature songstress on a journey of self-identity. A befeathered spectacle; a psychedelic, multimedia/music-fueled trip down the rabbit hole.

The Best

The Best began as a protest against the United States invading Iraq and beginning its unending War on Terror. It was loosely based on a constellation of ancient Greek plays set in Thebes and featured a consistent cast of semi-fictional “web personas.” The Best developed into a five-year epic that spanned genres including: a stage show presented in underground warehouses and prestigious festivals, a rock show that played some of NYC’s most prominent venues of the post-punk revival, an interactive video installation, and a pioneering internet phenomenon in a pre-social media era.
