FEELINGS: A Solo Clown Show by Elodie Azoulay (near LA)

Public Displays of Altadena 2553 North Fair Oaks Avenue, Altadena, CA, United States

Somewhere between a TED talk, a preschool classroom, and group therapy, FEELINGS is Elodie Azoulay's first *Work in Progress* solo clown show where they explore the mystifying territory of feelings. As they attempt to demonstrate their “expertise” on feelings like "happiness" "sadness" "anger" and "shame", the lines between different feelings, between fact and fiction, start to blur. The coping mechanisms they demonstrate to the crowd start to fail and confuse. And we start to see what they are actually coping […]

The Amazing Banana Brothers (in NYC)

Soho Playhouse 15 Vandam Street, New York, NY, United States

You either die an artist or you live long enough to see yourself become a stuntman.

Directed by Natalie Palamides (Nate, Netflix), this hilarious spectacle follows two daredevil brothers attempting the impossible — slipping on 1000 banana peels.

CLAIRE WOOLNER: A RETROSPECTION (in LA)

The Elysian 1944 Riverside Drive, Los Angeles, CA, United States

In this intimately absurd hour, Claire Woolner attempts to perform a retrospective of her ‘greatest’ most ‘moving’ and ‘important’ pieces; work made up of surrealist clown bits and absurdist performance pieces punctuated with and interrupted by a maniacal voice of self-loathing. The show toes the line between what is intended and what is improvised, what is funny and what is not, bringing the audience on an exciting (and at times nerve wracking) ride of ego battle, failure, creativity and how […]

The Crisis (in LA)

Lyric Hyperion Theatre & Café 2106 Hyperion Avenue, Los Angeles, CA, United States

At the heart of The Crisis is the friendship between Dione Kuraoka (Pea #1) and Kami Dimitrova (Pea #2), a couple-a peas in a pod who are hellbent on putting on the show of their dreams! There's just one problem—they each have very different ideas of what the show should be, and things are starting to crack at the seams. To make matters worse, a lowly stagehand janitor (Lane Koivu) hired to help with transitions starts to wedge his way […]
