THIRTYNOTHING
Written and Performed by Dan Fishback
Directed by Stephen Brackett
Co-Produced by Brooklyn Arts Exchange

In this multi-media performance, Dan Fishback juxtaposes tales from the early years of the AIDS epidemic with tales from his own childhood in the 1980s and early 90s. Searching for role models and father figures amongst gay artists who died in those years, Fishback interacts with images of their work, dramatizing the generation gap between older and younger gay men. Marking both the 30th anniversary of AIDS and Fishback's 30th birthday, thirtynothing memorializes the fallen while posing critical questions to all who survive.

thirtynothing is being developed through artists residencies at Brooklyn Arts Exchange and Yaddo, along with a grant from the Franklin Furnace Fund. This grant was made possible, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council. Major support of the Franklin Furnace Fund was provided in 2010-11 by the Lambent Foundation Fund of Tides Foundation, and Jerome Foundation.

DAN FISHBACK has been writing and performing in NYC since 2003. The Village Voice called his most recent play, You Will Experience Silence, "sassier and more fun than Angels in America." He has performed previous work at P.S. 122, Joe's Pub, Dixon Place, and other venues in NYC and abroad. Also a performing songwriter, Fishback began his music career in the East Village's anti-folk scene. His band, Cheese On Bread, has toured Europe and North America, and has released records in the United States and Japan. Fishback received the Six Points Fellowship for Emerging Jewish Artists in 2007. He is an Artist-in-Residence at Brooklyn Arts Exchange, and has enjoyed previous residencies at Yaddo and the MacDowell Colony.
