Tiny Errors At The End Of The Millennium Closes Syndicated Festival Today
The Syndicate's world premiere of Tiny Errors at the End of the Millennium closes out the Syndicated festival at IRT Theater in New York City on September 16, 2018. The piece, created by The Syndicate with lead writer Alanna Coby, is directed by Mikhaela Mahony.
It's 1999. On the competitive dance circuit, a dancer's obsessive attempts to perfect her routine for a panel of judges threaten to take over her life. Meanwhile, the world around her grows increasingly obsessed with Y2K, boy bands, guns, celebrity...laying the groundwork for the world we find ourselves in today. By examining the seemingly inconsequential mistakes we made at the end of the 20th century, Tiny Errors at the End of the Millennium asks, "How did we get here?"
The cast includes Alanna Coby, Janouke Goosen, Megan Hanley, María Ximena Salgado Hinojosa, Jackie Rivera and Jehan O. Young. The production team includes Phoenix Sweeney (lighting design) and Patricia Garvey (stage manager).
Syndicated - a festival of new work - featured Bluets, a solo adaptation of Maggie Nelson's acclaimed lyrical book of the same name, and First Read, a series that centers work by queer, trans and non-binary playwrights. The festival opened with Bluets, starring Ellenor Riley-Condit, on August 25, 2018. The festival is supported by ART/NY's Nancy Quinn Fund, the Netherlands America Fund, and the Open Meadows Foundation.
