En Garde Arts in association with the Downtown Brooklyn Partnership presents the premiere of  playdate Fest!, a brand new outdoor free performance showcase at Downtown Brooklyn’s new park, Abolitionist Place.

RSVP link

Performing in playdate Fest! will be En Garde Arts veterans David Greenspan, Baba Israel who will also serve as host, Samora la Perdida, Kuhoo Verma and Eisa Davis who will all be presenting excerpts of new music and theatre pieces.

Downtown legend and 6 times OBIE winner David Greenspan, who performed on the stoop of a Brooklyn brownstone with En Garde Arts, returns to tell stories from his experience with “Macbeth in Cleveland” where the mishaps of the well-intentioned turn comical when looked back upon.

Baba Israel performed in En Garde Arts Downtown Live series at an outdoor plaza in downtown Manhattan in 2021. Well-known for his immersive, and participatory music-making, he will both host and perform excerpts of his own material.

Kuhoo Verma, a composer and performer, also performed in En Garde Arts Downtown Live series inside a loading dock. She will be performing original music that is born out of her innate desire to connect with everything—even things that can not talk back. We will hear the psychosis of solitude and a yearning for intimacy in these melodies.  

Samora La Perdida will be performing material from her new musical Spanglish Sh!t, co-composed by Joshua Handelman, Morey Lola Irizarry and Matthew Zweibel. Spanglish Sh!t has been in development with En Garde Arts through our Uncommon Voices Program and will receive a workshop at the Baryshnikov Arts Center this coming November. Her new material has never been heard before by the general public.

Eisa Davis is an award-winning multidisciplinary artist based in Brooklyn, NY. She is the author of Bulrusher, Angela’s Mixtape, Mushroom, and many other stage works. Other favorite projects include Afrofemononomy, The Essentialisn’t, Kindred, Passing Strange. She’s made two albums and is writing a couple of musicals. Abolition runs in her blood.

 

Come join for an evening of theater & music outdoors!!
