EL TRAC
Written by Virgilio Piñera. Performed and directed by Alexis Diaz de Villegas. This monologue allows us to witness the crisis of an actor who is tired of the roles he must play, not just in the theatrical sense, but in life more broadly. The audience will become witness to the actor's spontaneous performance, which dramatize emotional states as they are experienced in the moment, in both Spanish and English.
Advance tickets: $10 | Door: $15

MAWU
Featuring Ephrat (Bounce), Jimbo, Linda (La Naija), Lisa, Secada, Tara and Tine
More than just a unique group of house dancers, MAWU's strength lies in the diversity of its members, all of whom represents different backgrounds, ethnicities and performance genres including house, hip hop, freestyle, modern, ballet, African and jazz. MAWU's movement style can be best described as "urban dance fusion" because its members seek to express movement using a clear vocabulary as it has been and continues to be developed in the urban underground setting, while drawing on both classical and contemporary techniques.

THE HOMOPHOBES: A CLOWN SHOW, A Mondo Cané Commission
Written and Directed by Susana Cook
Sound design by Julian Mesri
A misunderstood miracle shakes a conservative congregation's values to its core when their beloved pastor becomes the center of a spectacular firestorm that will forever shatter their notions of sex, gender and intercourse between animate beings. A transcendent trans-comedy of errors featuring mad ministers, divine interventions, confused angels and maybe even the antichrist.

Born in Argentina, SUSANA COOK is a NYC-based playwright, director and performer who has been presenting innovative works internationally for over 20 years. She has performed and led workshops in Spain, France, India, Argentina, Colombia, Ecuador, Canada and at several colleges and universities around the United States. Her most recent shows include The Fury of The Gods, Homeland Insecurities, The Idiot King, The Values Horror Show, 100 Years of Attitude, Dykenstein and Hamletango. She has received several fellowships and awards for her work from the New York
Foundation for the Arts, Franklin Furnace Archives, Arts International, Astrea Foundation, and INTAR.

THE HOMOPHOBES is commissioned by and first presented at Dixon Place with public funds from the New York State Council on the Arts, a State Agency, and the City of New York Department of Cultural Affairs; and with private funds from The Peg Santvoord Foundation and the Jerome Foundation.
Advance tickets: $15 General Admission | $12 Student/Senior. Door: $18 General Admission | $15 Student/Senior
