"It's a really smart and engaging play with plenty of dance and ...marshmellows! and wrestlers. Enticing, yes?"
"Next time D'Amour and Pearl bring their enchanting work to town be sure to take it in." - John del Signore, The Gothamist
"The collaborative team of playwright Lisa D'Amour and director Katie Pearl make beguiling, innovative theatre pieces." - American Theater Magazine
Science Tuesday meets Oklahoma angst as Lisa D'Amour and Katie Pearl flip P.S. 122 into a low-rent IMAX and get up close and in between molecules, quarks and memories. Have you ever wondered if all those lives you've imagined yourself living are actually happening in a parallel world(s)? Terrible Things takes audiences on a T-R-I-P inside the many lives of Katie Pearl and her action-figure literary mom. Expect an in-your-body out-of-body experience shaped by Katie Pearl, three killer dancers: Emily Johnson, Morgan Thorson, and Karen Sherman, two Brazilian Jiu Jitsu wrestlers, and 1000 marshmallows. Featuring the choreography of Emily Johnson.

We Are Weather: Vanessa Anspaugh
Performed by Aretha Aoki, Lily Gold, and Mary Reed
"This past weekend Danspace Project presented FOOD FOR THOUGHT, three evenings each curated by a different guest artist: Ursula Eagly (Thursday), Maura Donohue (Friday), and Enrico D. Wey (Saturday). This is a great program in which we collect food donations for a local non-profit, in this case St. Mark's Church's food pantry. One of our members, John Vinton, emailed me on Sunday to share his experience:
"I came on Friday [FOOD FOR THOUGHT, November 13] and was so gratified by the experience that I came again on Saturday. I'm sorry now that I didn't come Thursday! Having professionals put together these programs was wonderful. Their points of view gave me insight into what matters to them aesthetically, and what they see as important trends. It was always interesting and in a few cases very moving. Thanks again for a great weekend!"
