During the course of a 60-minute hot yoga class, two men breathe. They tighten their core. They visualize their chi. They express a desire to change. They accept humiliation. They are good. They are bad. They are rotting. The world is not better for them having been in it.

Intuitive Men is a 60-minute psychic-fatalistic power yoga class play.
Developed with support from the Williamstown Theatre Festival and Creeky Joint Arts Retreat

The Hopelessly Hopeless Story of All Good Girls
is led by Genée Alyse in collaboration with Jonathan Cottle, Kelsey Lurie, Jonathan Schenk, Parade Stone, and Luke Weber

Julie London out-takes and elegies from "friends" of Jon Benet Ramsey collide with selected text by Gaston Bachelard and Gloria Steinem to expose the unfulfilled fantasies of a lonely house-wife and her granddaughter. The accumulation of found texts, a collage of autobiographical, nonfiction and the fictional, are sourced from Gaston Bachelard, Gloria Steinem, Julie London, Ingmar Bergman, The Beales, Judy Garland, and Friends of JonBenet Ramsey.

Somewhere Downwind + Are You The One?
Somewhere Downwind
by Jo Stewart and Rachel Sherk
Last year at this time, it was dusk. Tonight, it's 62 degrees outside. A slight breeze. Rain. Overheard at the kitchen table: Whatever happened to good old-fashioned silence? It's not my job to decipher what you mean. How did you sleep? This play is a weather forecast of sorts.

Are You The One?
by Anna Lublina and Lilly Kaplan
Taking its title from MTV's hit reality TV show, ARE YOU THE ONE? is a physical theater experience where Meredith Monk meets The L Word. It's the ultimate queer dating game: each contestant must use their unique musical language to attract their "perfect match." As four sexy singles strive for harmony-literally-tempers flare and clothes come off. With tears and wistful love songs, will they find "the one"?

Call Me Fury: An Anti-Western
Direction and Sound Design by Christopher-Rashee Stevenson
Created by Theatre Of WAR
Featuring: Charlie Coursey, Katiuska Tahiri Herrand, Chet King, Hunter Scott MacNair, Lilja Owsley and Joseph Pryce

Somewhere in near future Oklahoma, a retiRed Lawman and his wife are unjustly murdered by a corrupt band of government officials who've seized control of a small town inhabited by farmers and settlers. Many years later, The lawman is reincarnated as a black man called Lone who will enact the land's curse, avenge his own murder, and free the vulnerable town from tyrannical occupation. Using six actors, sound, text, and found objects, Theatre of WAR pays homage to and comments upon the Spaghetti WESTERNs of the 60's and 70's, while attempting to navigate a way through a grim present into a vast, unknown future.

ReFUSEpart of Gemini CollisionWorks' 20th Anniversary Season

After Civilization (as we know it) has broken apart into barely-functioning fragments being played with by careless
toddlers, a company of nine artist-Friends and three technological muse-Engineers sift though The Remains of Culture,
using structures from Shakespeare to daytime TV to try and bring new power to old stories, and to recreate and reassemble the best stories and archetypes from the past to move into a better Future. In respect of 20 years creating over 90 NYC stage productions, Gemini CollisionWorks now creates a work summarizing its philosophy, style, and aesthetic while looking to the future of the medium, and in the midst of these dark, malevolent times that the company has predicted, examined, and even celebrated for years, offers a program of hope, progress, and healing for the ages to come after.
