More information about the program for The Muse Project's Musings: a collection of Mini Muse presentations at The Flea Theater (October 15th - October 21st) below:

The Muse Project, in association with The Tank, will present Musings: a collection of Mini Muse presentations at The Flea Theater as a part of their Anchor Partnership. Musings showcases the exciting, fresh, paradigm-shifting storytelling that New York's leading actresses have developed through intensive workshops. The Muse Project gives women performers the time, space, and opportunity to experiment with and explore their fantasy projects.

In total, The Muse Project is developing 5 Mini Muses this year. The presentations will give audiences an inspired taste of what these women actors are working on, and each presentation will be followed by a talkback.

Vanessa Aspillaga will be presenting from a piece that incorporates music and her visual art, a creative memoir of sorts - with collaborator José Zayas; Lynn Cohen will be presenting from a piece that reimagines Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz - with collaborators Lewis Black, Ron Cohen, and Ian Morgan; Jessica Frances Dukes will be presenting from her first solo show exploring a complex familial lineage of race, class, and identity in America - with collaborators Taylor Barfield and Seret Scott. Déa Julien will be presenting from a piece that seeks to tell the story of a young Syrian refugee and her relationship to the wealthy American woman who sponsors her for a year - with collaborators Kylie Brown, Caroline Hewitt, and Megan Sandberg-Zakian of Maia Directors; and Kyra Miller will be presenting from a new piece exploring puppetry, Gaslight, and Bluebeard - with collaborators Noel Allain and Katie Pearl. Actresses Chelsea Dee and Zainab Musa are 2018 Muse alternates.

Additionally, The Muse Project will present their inaugural Tea Time event (detailed above) and a Mini Gala at The Flea. The Mini Gala is slated for October 19th at 8:30pm. It will be a fun-filled, intimate party, where guests get to mingle with the Muses and other special guests at The Flea, and celebrate leading women actors. Tickets ($15 - $50) are available for advance purchase at theflea.org/shows/musings.

The Muse Project (Jocelyn Kuritsky, Producing Artistic Director) seeks to disrupt the imbalance of opportunity and ownership of work for women actors through the development of challenging, actor-driven theater works and focused research into their participation in American theater. The company shifts the theater paradigm through the empowerment of women actors as creators and content generators. With The Muse Project, actresses choose the role they want to play and the story they want to tell, and then a creative team is built around the actress's vision.

Partner organizations for The Muse Project include Abingdon Theatre Company, The Flea Theater, New Georges, The New Group, The Pit, The Tank, Theaterlab, and Torn Page. www.themuseprojectnyc.com.
