Dixon Place Presents: Exquisite Corpse Company's Corpse Revival Performance Series


Exquisite Corpse Company (ECC) rings in the new year with Corpse Revival Performance Series: Like Clockwork, featuring workshop performances of six new plays developed in their Summer 2016 Writer's Lab. The plays will be presented at Dixon Place's main stage, January 24-26th at 7:30 and 9:30 PM. Each play will receive one performance.

These six new plays were developed as part of Exquisite Corpse Company's Summer Writer's Lab. Written during the now infamous 2016 primary elections, and premiering 3 days after what is sure to be a memorable inauguration, each play explores various walks of American life in the face of the current political climate.

Corpse Revival Performance Series (CRPS) is part of ECC's Exquisite Development program. Occurring bi-annually, ECC invites six new playwrights to develop six new plays in the company's Writer's Lab. Each play receives its premiere reading as part of the Drinks & Drama Reading Series. ECC chooses up to six plays to be further produced as part of CRPS.

Featuring a single and transformative on-stage art installation designed by Danica Selem, will serve as the set for each play. Plays center around the theme of politics, ranging from the personal to national level. The plays include Algorithm by Alisa Sniderman, directed by Benita de Wit; Elected Remains by Leah Barker, directed by Alex Tobey; Clockwork by Emily Zemba, directed by Jenna Worsham; Monte, TN by Alexis Schaetzle, directed by Katie Pedro; The Soup Play by Alexis Roblan, directed by Tess Howsam; and Concertina by Simon de Carvalho, directed by Anna Strasser.
