A Festival of Fools theatre company, in partnership with the 2013 New York International Fringe Festival, is pleased to announce the premiere of an original, full-length verse play: “A Game Without a Name: Being the Tale Wherein Impostor Acts the Fool” written by artistic director Timothy Bungeroth.

The free play will be performed outdoors as part of Fringe Al Fresco in August 2013, taking full advantage of the city landscape to present an exciting hour-long plunge into a world of myth, daring and imbecilic clowns.

In this play, the Fool is trapped inside the Primordial Zenith, unable to escape or understand his plight until a quartet of bumbling clowns appears. They lead the Fool through five acts of a cosmic, comic ritual, and a mythical masked trickster figure, the Impostor, appears. The Fool can’t escape until he knows why he’s there – but once he does, he’ll have to make a choice – escape or sacrifice.

The play, which is the origin story of Impostor, is written in iambic pentameter and brings new life to an old style of verse. The heroic couplets are accompanied by original choral music, swordfighting bouts, and rubber chickens battles. It’s a swashbuckling, rhyming adventure into a fantastical world of mythology.

Little Red’s Hood is a fresh retelling of the classic “Little Red Riding Hood” tale updated with a modern sensibility that will appeal to kids. The production features a dozen, hand-made marionettes crafted by the expert puppeteers from the Swedish Cottage Marionette Theatre.

Like many of today’s children, Little Red is a smart, young city slicker who is too focused on her smartphone to notice her surroundings. Wulfric is a misunderstood wolf with a sweet tooth. When Little Red travels from New York City to the country to deliver some cupcakes to her Grandma, she encounters a colorful cast of characters as Wulfric the Wolf tries to head her off at the pass.

Little Red’s Hood is directed by Swedish Cottage Marionette Theatre’s Artistic Director Bruce Cannon and written by Liam Hurley.

The CityParks PuppetMobile is the oldest continually operating company of its kind in the country, which presents free performances and puppet-making workshops in neighborhood parks, recreation centers and schools throughout New York City.

7:00 PM – All Levels Open Dance Master Class by: Craig Smith
8:00 PM – Performance

“Speak” is a multi-media concert and dance piece inspired by the songs of artist Marla Mase's acclaimed album, . Combining live music, spoken word, dance and visual imagery, choreographer Adrienne Hurd melds contemporary and modern dance forms in this one of a kind show. Through Hurd's powerful portrayal of a woman's confinement, sexuality, body image, trauma, oppression and freedom, she celebrates the raw reality of the human condition as expressed through the eyes, bodies, and voices of women. Through the expressive movements of a troupe of seven dancers, each of whom has a distinct voice and tale in the mini-stories, the dancers will explore the archetypes that make up the idea of what it means to be a modern woman.

The music, co-written by Marla Mase and Tomás Doncker is an integral part of “Speak” and features elements of Rock-n-Roll with World Beat, Punk, Funk, Electronica, Reggae and Soul and will be performed live at each performance with both Mase and The Tomás Doncker Band.

Masterclass: Join music industry choreographer and fitness veteran, Craig Smith, for this high energy, fun, dance fusion class. This class will highlight various dance & cultural music styles.

Twin Shadow is the musical child of Dominican-born George Lewis Jr. The alternative pop style of music that Lewis writes, sings, and produces has been on the rise since the inception of Twin Shadow in 2010. His most recent album, Confess was released in 2012 and it once again found Lewis Jr. doing what he does best; fashioning a soundtrack which sounds refreshingly and distinctly modern. The album was met with much critical acclaim and debuted at # 54 on “The Billboard Top 200.” Live, his shows are considered a high energy experience not to be missed.

Arthur Ashin, better known as Autre Ne Veut is the first of two children and the only son of American ex-patriots living in rural Kenya. He’s struggled with minor bouts of depression throughout his life, but a year of intensive psychoanalysis helped him to realize that anxiety was at the crux of his problems. Anxiety is the full-length 2013 follow up to Autre Ne Veut’s 2010 self-titled debut which had Pitchfork saying "every song on his self-titled debut is a marvel, each in its own way." The album is in some sense Ashin closing a chapter on his adolescence through song-form depictions of his own relationship struggles and ecstasies. There are club bangers on Anxiety, for sure; but when experienced as a whole, there is an unfolding sense of confession to this Pop/R&B gem.

“Diablo Love” is a fantastical love story featuring live music that re-imagines songs made famous by American Blues singer, guitarist and harmonica player, Howlin' Wolf along with original compositions by Tomás Doncker. This production provides audiences with a masterful live soundtrack of Blues/Soul music and sets the stage for a dynamic performance.

What would you do for love? In the dark alleys of Hell's Kitchen, Smoke, a lost soul, finds himself face to face with Mephi, the demon devil he made a deal with two years prior. She's there to collect his soul. In order to spare his own horrific demise, Smoke must find a willing person to swap spots with him, and as a result comes upon Emma, a fledgling Harlem Gospel singer from a troubled background with big dreams of fame. As Emma works through the trials and tribulations of erecting a career with her group, Smoke appears with big promises and a plan for fame and fortune. The two embark on a joint quest to achieve both of their missions, and what once began as a task for Smoke to find his replacement quickly takes a complicated turn as he must decide between unconditional love and Diablo love.

**Note: This production contains strong language**

The Randall’s Island Park Alliance, The Bronx Museum of the Arts, and Made Event are pleased to present FLOW, the annual summer art exhibit along the shoreline at Randall’s Island Park in New York City. FLOW is aimed at fostering appreciation of the shoreline through artistic expression, while calling visitors to interact with and care for the Park’s island environment. Each year, FLOW features five site specific projects by participants in the Bronx Museum’s Artists in the Marketplace (AIM) program for emerging artists.

Randall’s Island Park is a unique and remarkable waterfront resource, located in the East River with views of the Queens, Bronx and Manhattan shorelines. New waterfront pathways run along the 4.5-mile shoreline, which includes almost 9 acres of restored salt marsh and freshwater wetlands. The Park also offers a track & field stadium, a golf center, a 20-court tennis center and dozens of new playing fields, as well as the Harlem River Event Site, home of Made Event’s Electric Zoo, a three-day Labor Day weekend concert event at Randall’s Island which draws local and international DJ artists and audience.

FLOW.13 – this year's third annual exhibition – will be open to the public every day from June-November, and will feature five new site-specific installations, all reflecting and encouraging interaction with the Park’s history and environment. The five installations are located along the southern shoreline of Randall's Island Park.

FLOW is made possible through support from Made Event, proud producers of The Electric Zoo Festival, NYC’s largest electronic dance music festival, held annually at Randall’s Island Park.

The FLOW exhibitions express the confluence of art, music and environment at Randall’s Island Park, in the midst of one of the world’s greatest cities.

With more than three decades of musical history, Tito Nieves, the “Pavarotti” of Salsa, has released his 30th studio album. Mi Ultima Grabacion. Tito’s new album has its roots with the Salsa and Tropical music that have made him an icon. Having performed with famed orchestras such as Orquesta Cimarron, the Hector Lavoe Orchestra and Conjunto Clasico, he set out for a career as a solo artist. His first album Classic, included the hit “Sonambulo.” Throughout his career, Nieves has incorporated English to his recordings defying the language barrier with his versatility and crossover appeal. Included among the timeless are smash hits such as “Can you stop the Rain” and “You bring me Joy.” However, the Latin anthem of the 90’s that sealed his place in pop culture history was “I Like it Like That,” which transformed the original version into an energetic powerhouse with vibrant Latin overtones catapulting him into mainstream success.

One of New York City’s top Latin DJ’s, Alex Sensation was born in Bogotá, Colombia. A famed DJ at numerous New York nightclubs, his musical taste appeals to a broad audience that includes various nationalities spanning the world of Tropical and Caribbean music. Celebrated for his hit radio shows on famed Spanish radio station, La Mega 97.9 FM, Alex Sensation is one of Latin music’s tastemakers.

A Festival of Fools theatre company, in partnership with the 2013 New York International Fringe Festival, is pleased to announce the premiere of an original, full-length verse play: “A Game Without a Name: Being the Tale Wherein Impostor Acts the Fool” written by artistic director Timothy Bungeroth.

The free play will be performed outdoors as part of Fringe Al Fresco in August 2013, taking full advantage of the city landscape to present an exciting hour-long plunge into a world of myth, daring and imbecilic clowns.

In this play, the Fool is trapped inside the Primordial Zenith, unable to escape or understand his plight until a quartet of bumbling clowns appears. They lead the Fool through five acts of a cosmic, comic ritual, and a mythical masked trickster figure, the Impostor, appears. The Fool can’t escape until he knows why he’s there – but once he does, he’ll have to make a choice – escape or sacrifice.

The play, which is the origin story of Impostor, is written in iambic pentameter and brings new life to an old style of verse. The heroic couplets are accompanied by original choral music, swordfighting bouts, and rubber chickens battles. It’s a swashbuckling, rhyming adventure into a fantastical world of mythology.
