DAUGHTYR

 DAUGHTYR

A poetic dance play Created & Directed by Bailey Nolan

Friday March 3rd, 2017 7:00 pm & 9:00 pm

Triskelion Arts, Doug Theatre: 106 Cayler Street, Brooklyn, NY

$18 tickets: daughtyr.eventbrite.com

A portion of all proceeds will be donated to the NYC charity Safe Horizon, helping victims of sexual assault.

Set hundreds of years in the future, over population is maintained by selective breeding. The standard procedure when having a child includes the government, dictated by Murdyr & Powyr, ordering sterilization for children at puberty depending on family health. Draped over a landscape of pop remixes and poetic monologues, the story revolves around Mothyr, grief-stricken during her realization of having a child who is to be sterilized, and Daughtyr, a hopeful symbol of a new world order. The story is loosely narrated vocally by Daughtyr’s doll, Old Glory, and emotionally by an Angyl. Three acts bookmarked by video dreams are pregnant with Irish accents, a dance battle, children singing, Brangelina references, fog, and the spirit of Christmas. DAUGHTYR wails a battle cry for unity held by the generations of womyn to come.

Starring:

Bailey Nolan ~ Daughtyr

Peter Smith ~ Mothyr

Ariel Ash ~ Angyl

Ellen Donnelly ~ Old Glory

Viva Soudan ~ Powyr

Georgia Sanford ~ Murdyr

Christopher Willauer ~ War Pig

Sixth Street Children's Choir ~ The Future

Wednesday Derrico ~ Voices

Choreographed by Bailey Nolan and Georgia Sanford

Headpieces by Cammie Windley-Sanders

Videos by Ellen Donnelly

Following the premiere at Triskelion Arts, Daughtyr will be staged at JACK, Brooklyn, from May 15-18 with an expanded cast. In Spring 2017, Daughtyr will be the focal point of grant and residency proposals in order to develop the production level and to reach a broader audience with her message.

  • 182 Eldridge Street New York, NY, 10002 United States (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

January’s PUSSY PLAY READING GROUP is hosted by Sophia Heinecke.

We will be reading, Sophia’s original play,

Please, Mrs. West

The year is 2019. Kanye has been assassinated on the campaign trail approaching the date for the presidential election, for which he is a nominee.

Kim is sitting down for an interview - something that for once is not controlled by her mother, or, she hopes, centering around her own pop culture identity. The interview quickly devolves into a conversation between two strong and notable women contending with issues of motherhood, public life in the age of new and social media, and female celebrity.

yes, this is about you is a section of the new full length musical painting to premiere in F/W 2017 entitled LQQK, The Way I Look by José Rivera, Jr. LQQK will be performed as the culmination of a new digital series created and curated by José to be released S/S 2017 featuring new original music, covers, and concepts.

of Alan @ Art Share LA

Art Share L.A. is excited to announce the Los Angeles premiere of “of Alan” written by Shelby Brage and directed by Katie Oscar. 

In this original performance work by writer/performer Shelby Brage [Experimental Bitch Presents], the audience is immersed within the turbulent world of mid-life schizophrenic sex offender Alan. Set in the dark corners of sunny LA, the characters and the audience find their conceptions of normalcy violently destabilized. Touching poignantly - and painfully - on dilemmas of mental health, incarceration, attachment, and familial love, this piece upends notions of sanity with moving flair.

January Women's Play Reading Group

Kathleen Hanna says on Karen Finley's, Shock Treatment:

This is the work that made me get off my ass and actually do something, and it will inspire you, too!

Our monthly women's play reading group will meet Sunday, January 24th at 8pm, led by EBP artist Eliah Eason! Eason says: 

Karen Finley, Kathleen Hanna, Patti Smith, Diane Di Prima, and Elizabeth Swados were/are all performance creating artists and poets who utilized explicit feminist content. I am drawn to the overlapping of feminism, punk rock, queer rights and poetry; noticing the influences they have had on each other throughout recent decades. Very much under recognized, these women chose to scream instead of hide behind metaphors. 

RSVP with the subject "January Play Reading Group" to experimentalbpresents@gmail.com
You are welcome to start arriving at 8pm and we will begin reading at 8:30pm.
Location: Wednesday's place in Bushwick (location & reading materials will be disclosed with an RSVP).
Please bring an open mind and a bottle of wine or something sweet~


EBP on Women's Monthly Play Reading Group:
The group is an inclusive community that was founded in Summer 2014 by a few EBP members before EBP was conceived. That said, the group is not exclusive to EBP artists. We welcome listeners and participators who represent the diversity of Brooklyn and beyond as it relates to race, ethnicity, gender, religion, sexual orientation, and socio-economic class. We celebrate women-identifying playwrights and choose to read their plays, and we support a platform for women-identifying actors, artists, and appreciators to be the readers of the material.

December Women's Monthly Play Reading Group

Our monthly women's play reading group meets Wednesday, December 16 at 7:30pm, led by artist Lynne Rey.

She has decided on a night of ancient stories! We will be reading from Women Who Run with the Wolves by Clarissa Pinkola Estes and The Myth of Inanna by the ancient Sumerians. They are both full of nourishment for the psyche and woman centric empowerment. They are also dramatic, entertaining and sexy stories that will help us connect with our sisters of the past and future as these stories are timeless!

Women Who Run with the Wolves is available at Enchantments on 9th Ave and maybe at the NYU Bookstore! The Inanna interpretation is by Diane Wolkstein, might be hard to find. It is not necessary for people to have their own copies though since they are stories & not scenes.


RSVP with the subject "December Play Reading Group" to experimentalbpresents@gmail.com


You are welcome to start arriving at 7:30pm and we will begin reading at 8:00pm.


Location: Lynne's place in Clinton Hill (location will be disclosed with an RSVP).

The School of Narrative Dance, processional performance on the High Line

We are excited to announce a groundbreaking, historical performance with Creative Time we will be participating in on Friday, November 13th!!

We have been collaborating with artist Marinella Senatore and choreographers ESPZ for the School of Narrative Dance, Processional performance on the High Line to kick-off the 2015 Creative Time Summit!

Some info from Marinella Senatore re. the School of Narrative Dance:  "My practice is based on public participation, open to every people, no limit of age, background and no need previous experiences. I founded in 2013 a School which is a nomadic project called "The School of Narrative Dance", so through the body, that keeps the memory of experience, stories and tales, we basically try to make a social event, aggregating, even just for the time of rehearsals and final performance, very different people, mostly not professional, that sometimes even don't know how powerful and precious is their role in making a creative work. Building new communities, even temporary ones!  We try to find local energies, share skills and stories and translate them in dance, empowering people and addressing sometimes in the Parades social issues, as the Parade itself becomes a social event." 

You are also welcome to participate in EBP's original gesture dance (a dance in response to sexual violence and street harassment) for our segment of the procession. This requires no group rehearsal- only you must learn the gestures on your own & be prepared to jump in to the structure at the Procession. No dance or movement experience necessary. If you are interested in dancing this piece with us, please email us at experimentalbpresents@gmail.com & we will send the materials to learn! 

Performance 11/13 6-7pm.  Procession begins at the Gansevoort Entrance on High Line and will move up the park until 14th street. 
if you will be participating with us, we will include call time in the email.

Artist Info:
Creative Time: http://creativetime.org/summit/

Marinella Senatore: http://www.marinella-senatore.com School of Narrative Dance

ESPZ a great duo, the choreographs ESPZ (Elisa and Nandhan), a dance collective based in Berlin – their approach to movement is according with School of Narrative Dance. They are great, really, as person and professionals and always participants are enthusiastic to work with both!

Women's Monthly Play Reading Group -- October

Our monthly women's play reading group meets Monday, October 26 at 8pm, led by artist Shelby Brage. She has selected scenes from THE ROVER by Aphra Behn to read & discuss. Aphra Behn lived in England from 1640-1689 and was one of the first women to earn her living by writing.  Behn is the foremother of seventeenth-century theatre, and her prose work led to the development of the English novel.  Her subject matter alludes to sexual desire and features homoerotic themes.  She is known to have said her works would not have been regarded as scandalous if they were written by a man.  

RSVP with the subject "October Play Reading Group" to experimentalbpresents@gmail.com

You are welcome to start arriving at 8:15pm and we will begin reading at 8:30pm.

Location: Madeline Barasch's house in Bushwick (location will be disclosed with an RSVP).
Upon RSVP, you will be emailed a PDF of the script & selected scenes.

Please bring an open mind and a bottle of wine or something sweet~

Pipeline Theatre Co - The Gray Man

to Oct 18

Pipeline Theatre Co - The Gray Man

Artist Zach Donovan is a PA for Pipeline Theatre Co.'s "The Gray Man" @ Walkerspace.

The Gray Man isn’t real. He’s a ghost story, a boogeyman mothers make up tales about to keep their children safe.

A grieving young man named Simon listens to these bedtime stories outside his apartment window and yearns to leave the city he’s so afraid of. But when he meets a little girl with an old soul who speaks of missing children, Simon can’t help but feel trapped in his tenement house, where a familiar shadow waits in the darkness.

through October 18 at 46 Walker St (Soho Rep's Walkerspace)

You Can Have Whatever You Want

You Can Have Whatever You Want

Resident Artist Lynne Rey presents...

You Can Have Whatever You Want is a two person musical play about a young woman’s experiences and visions around puberty. Together performers Mercedes Matilda and Tuna Helper tell the story of Suzie’s discovery and undoing of “what it means to be a woman.”

Tuna Helper and Mercedes Matilda met at NYU’s experimental theater wing where they both studied to be questionably successful strippers and performance artists. One of their shared accomplishments is the sheer amount of time Tuna and Mercedes have committed to considering how they might make a valuable contribution to their human family. Mercedes co-produces a monthly burlesque cabaret called Hypergender at the WOW Cafe Theater and Tuna uses her brilliant mind to compose touching music.
