Milkman - Highline Ballroom
September 02, 2011 -

Full dinner menu available / General Admission Standing Room / Limited seating available first come, first serve / All Ages Milkman is the stage alias of Hip-Hop/Dance/Rock music producer Gregg Luskin from San Diego, CA. As a freshman at the University of California, Santa Barbara, Milkman was introduced to various glitch-pop remix artists. After being exposed to this new and upcoming sample-based genre, Milkman spent the remainder of the year learning and improving his own mashup technique. It took Milkman 13 months to complete his debut album Lactose and THC (released January 22, 2008 under self owned production company Milkman Entertainment) and was available to download for free online. Over the course of the next year, the debut album Lactose and THC was downloaded over 26,000 from his website alone and was voted the "#2 Mashup Album of All Time" by DJ Forum. Soon after, Milkman took his music to a more professional level by offering live DJ service- extending the sound of his debut album for a more dance-oriented environment. In the years following, Milkman expanded his fan base by performing locally in the shore-side college community Isla Vista. As word spread through college campuses around the country and over seas, Milkman's popularity began to grow and was soon headlining performances from coast to coast. Milkman is now regarded as a premiere mashup DJ around the world and regularly performs with A-List artists such as Kid Cudi, Lil' Jon and Three 6 Mafia. Milkman was awarded both "Hottest mashup DJ of 2008" as well as "DJ to watch out for in 2009" by DJ Forum. Prior to digital music production and live DJ performance, Gregg Luskin was the lead guitarist of San Diego based rock quartet A Dead Giveaway under the indie-rock label Pacific Records.

Running Time: 90 minutes | Tickets $15. In this spectacular multimedia investigation of America in the Atomic Age, unnerving images, rattling rhythms and disturbing text collide with slapstick and highly aggressive physical storytelling to create an erotic pop culture explosion. Focusing on the period of 1941-1969, "Nuclear Love Affair" traces America's obsession with violence through the social and political chain reaction caused by dropping of the atomic bomb. Iconic figures, historical tales and stock film footage are layered with a frenetic music score that combines hits from the era with modern beats to build an expressive and surreal landscape. Featuring Elvis Presley dancing through Vietnam, Charlie Chaplin at Hiroshima, Lucille Ball doing a commercial for an electric chair, and Marilyn Monroe teaching us all how to duck and cover, "Nuclear Love Affair" is a twisted take on the journey of the American Dream. It looks at where we have been, and begs us, "Where do we go from here?" Sanaz Ghajarrahimi (Director and Co-Author) is an Iranian-American director and choreographer. With Built for Collapse, she has directed and choreographed "Orpheus and the Plastic Masquerade" (Galapagos Art Space), "Elephant Man" (Wings Theatre), "Stork and Owl" (Bleecker Street Theater), "Hamlet" (Galapagos Art Space, Grace Exhibition Space) and "Romeo and Juliet" (Access Theater).

Duendes, Facebook, Narcissus and illicit sexual encounters collide as a group of high school friends now in their late 20s wake up to the fact that they still may have fucked it all up. Cruel, funny, sexy and magical, this play explodes the idea that with or without technology, we may all be a lot more connected than we'd like to think -- and that it might take more than just revisiting the past to discover the future that is now. Christopher Oscar Peña is a playwright from California currently living in Harlem. His work has been developed or seen at the Public Theater, NYU Graduate Acting, INTAR, the UCSB Summer Theatre Lab, Theatre C, The Studio/ New York, the Ontological Hysteric Incubator, Rising Circle, The Flea Theater and the New York Theatre Workshop.

'La Mano: Tales of the End of the World' - Theater for the New City
Through September 04, 2011 - New York

"La Mano: Tales of the End of the World" (New York Premiere) written and directed by Aravind Enrique Adyanthaya. Cino Theater - Wednesday, August 31 at 7:00PM; Thursday, September 1 at 7:00PM; Friday, September 2 at 7:00PM; Saturday, September 3 at 2:00PM; Sunday, September 4 at 7:00PM. Running time: 70 minutes | Tickets $15. "La Mano: Tales of the End of the World" theatricalizes three short narratives dealing with apocalypse, chaos, Babel, violence and beauty. Set in a Caribbean island, the stories bridge what we consider true life and hallucination. Based on a new published narrative anthology by Aravind Enrique Adyanthaya, "La Mano" centers on three stories of quotidian horror. In "Julia and the Jogger of Cemeteries," an eight-year old girl who fervently believes in the end of the world is confronted by a jogger who runs through cemeteries thinking that the tombstones are as infinite as the world itself. In "Slaughterhouse," the encounter of a mature man with a much younger man who affirms that they had studied together in grade-school serves as a starting point of an exploration of memory and exquisite violence as they walk through phantasmagorical towns on the island. Finally, "Readings from the Apocalypse" meta-theatrically presents a stage director who feels the century has not yet ended and tries to use matter (animate and inanimate) to achieve a staging of the point after the end. Aravind Enrique Adyanthaya is the founder of Casa Cruz de la Luna, an experimental theatre company based in an old house in the historical district of San Germán, Puerto Rico. In the U.S., his work has been presented and developed by Intermedia Arts, Red Eye Collaboration, Pregones Theatre, Teatro del Pueblo, the Weisman Art Museum, the Guthrie Theatre,the Children's Theatre Company of Minnesota, the Public Theatre, the Lincoln Center's Directors' Lab, HERE Center for the Arts, NoPassport Collective and the Solo Nova Arts Festival at P.S.122. Internationally, his productions have traveled to Cuba, Mexico, the Dominican Republic, England and the Netherlands. His theories and practices of "escritura acto" have suggested a way of conceiving the stage as a ground of multiple lines of communication and miscommunication in which the live production and reception of mediated written and spoken words converge. "La Mano," a musical theatre/performance piece, premiered in Puerto Rico in 2010. Adyanthaya's other plays include "Hagiografías (Hagiographies)," "Las Facultades (The Faculties)," winner of the 2007 International Playwriting Award from Casa del Teatro, Dominican Republic and the 2008 Asunción Prize from Pregones Theatre; "Quisimos Tanto a Lydia," featured at the 2008 Latin American Theatre Today Congress; "Prometheus Bound," shown as a special presentation at the American Society for Theatre Research 2009 Conference; and "The Marquis de Sade is Afraid of the Sea," an "escritura acto" ensemble piece which toured the island's universities in 2009. Aravind has been awarded a Jerome Playwriting Fellowship and a McKnight Advancement Grant, both from the Playwrights' Center, and a Jerome Performance Art Fellowship by Intermedia Arts. He is currently an Artist of Color Directing Fellow at New York Theatre Workshop. He holds a Ph.D. in theatre historiography from the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis and an M.D. from Mayo Medical School.

Running time: 90 minutes | Tickets $15. While September 11, 2001 will forever be a day of national tragedy, September 12, 2001 was a day of national confusion, shock and fear. On that day and the days to follow, one young man grabbed a simple audio recorder and hit the streets - compelled to speak with strangers about the attacks. The resulting interviews have been re-created in the nine/twelve tapes just as they were recorded. Using analog equipment and an ensemble of actors, each of these accounts is brought to life with all the background noise and immediacy of those days intact. Equal parts time-capsule and public memoir, the nine/twelve tapes give voice to the national psyche and show us the start of our own recovery. Leegrid Stevens' plays have been seen in downtown New York theatres such as HERE Arts Center, Lark Theatre, Ontological-Hysteric Theatre, Theatre for the New City, Altered Stages, and Spring Theatreworks' Dumbo space as well as several theatres across the US and Europe. His plays have been published by Playscripts, Brooklyn Publishers, Smith & Kraus, Stage Tribes, and by NY Theatre Experience. Plays include "The Dudleys!," presented at the Dream Up Festival and winner of Talkin' Broadway 2010 Citation for Outstanding New Play, "The Twelfth Labor," developed at the Lark Theatre's Playwright's Week, "Post-Oedipus," "Leda's Swan," "Echo's Longing," "Still Life With Runner" and "Theme & Variations." Stevens was named as one of the "People of the Year" by nytheatre.com in 2005 which caqlled him, "Indisputably one of the smartest and most innovative young playwright/directors working in New York's Indie theatre scene." He is a graduate of Columbia's School of the Arts. Ryan Pointer wants to bring this important project to the masses as we near the 10 year anniversary of 911. Originally from Texas, he has produced and directed a wide variety of projects there including acclaimed productions of Shakespeare's R&J by Joe Calarco, "Proof” by David Auburn, the dance musical "Swing!," Steve Martin's adaptation of "The Underpants" and "Amadeus" by Peter Shaffer.
