Violet and Bruce Wong just don’t fit in with the other Earth kids. Sure, they have super powers, they’re just not very good ones. But when an evil beast called the Space Chupacabra appears, intent on universal destruction, The Wong Kids must travel to outer space in order to stop it… if they can only stop bickering. Using a mix of action-driven storytelling, puppetry, and visual magic, THE WONG KIDS transports its audience into the far reaches of the galaxy

***Sat. Feb. 1: Post-show discussion with the theatre company (moderator: Teresa Fiore, Montclair State University
Rumore di acque (Noise in the Waters) is a dark, intense melologue (short work for voice and music) written by Marco Martinelli on the tragedy of migrants in the Mediterranean, based on true stories performed by actor Alessandro Renda and multi-instrumentalists Enzo and Lorenzo Mancuso.
Rumore di acque (Noise in the Waters) protests the indifference of Fortress Europe to the everyday tragedy of refugees from Africa, who have perished for years in the Strait of Sicily on fruitless sea voyages to escape massacres and starvation in their homelands.
“The show leaves us astonished, indignant and not only: it digs beneath indifference, carving out faces, stories and sufferings that continue to live within us for days and days.”
– Massimo Marino, Corriere della Sera

“39 Defaults is a must-see: smart, brilliant, and reticent.”
-Franco Baldasso, Nueva York 2012
A Spanish political activist arrives in New York and meets Liz, who invites him to her apartment. Ricard has defrauded 39 banks in Spain. He claims this is not a crime, but a general call for financial disobedience. 39 Defaults explores trust in an era when hospitality meets surveillance, and idealism confronts daily necessities.
