Marathon Dancing – Letters to Wall Street in the Era of Wonderful Nonsense

By Zishan Ugurlu

April 17 – April 20, 2014


Conceived and Directed by Zishan Ugurlu
After Horace McCoy’s novel, They Shoot Horses, Don’t They?
featuring students from Eugene Lang College, The New School University for Liberal Arts
Marathon Dancing – Letters to Wall Street in the Era of Wonderful Nonsense portrays the grueling and competitive world of 1930s dance marathons and parallels today’s exploitative reality show culture, framed by the current economic crisis. Marathon Dancing features letters written to bank executives by angered individuals, read live by the writers themselves, bringing to light the brutal effects of the economic collapse of 2008.
