The Last Call  (Spain)
a micro-play from a story by Jean Cocteau
July 1, 2016 at 7:00pm

A victim of love waits for the call that will both give him life and take it away from him. The wait and hope, filled with desperation. (In)communication, the solitude of big cities, the option of living a lie, and the addictions that create emotional dependency. One everyday phone call in which what isn’t said is as important as what you hear. A tribute to everyone who is alone in NYC. Directed by Rafael Abolafia.

poetry and movement, combined

A zany tribute to all the muscles of the body and then some. Dr. Nickie Nom, acclaimed anatomical forensic surgical specialist and poet, gives a reading from her book of poems, Namely Muscles. The reading goes hilariously awry as Dr. Nom finds herself entangled by “Psoas, The Tender Bender,” “Gluteus to My Ears,” “Just the Meat,” and many more. Photo by Eleanora Alberto.
