INCOMING! [50/50] OLD SCHOOL ANIMATION

Sunday, January 14

INCOMING! is Under the Radar’s festival within a festival, featuring in-process works of artistic ambition by the wildly diverse artists of the Devised Theater Working Group.

In under an hour, what seems utterly innocuous becomes outrageously ultra-violent. A classical ghost story for our contemporary moment, this deceptively simple examination of misogyny, cruelty, and memes is equal parts long-form confessional monologue and serial teen drama. 

Running Time: 50 Minutes


RE-MEMBER ME

RE-MEMBER ME

Sunday, January 14

Humorous and haunting, Re-Member Me examines memory and mortality as award-winning performer and lip synch maestro Dickie Beau conjures a veritable human Hamlet mix-tape of the actors who have portrayed Shakespeare’s tragic prince.

Running Time: 60 Minutes


THE TRANSFORMATIONS SUITE

THE TRANSFORMATIONS SUITE

Sunday, January 14

Continuing the tradition of artists such as Bob Marley, Duke Ellington, Marvin Gaye, Billie Holiday, and Tupac Shakur, the Suite paints a musical picture of the current state of social inequality and injustice in the United States and beyond. The Transformations Suite connects contemporary issues, such as the prison industrial complex and the Black Lives Matter movement, with the history of revolutionary movements of color. It asks probing questions and builds an urgent case for rebellion in the present moment. 

Running Time: 1 Hour and 15 Minutes
