Jess Barbagallo: Weekend at Barry’s/Lesbian LighthouseJune 10 - June 26, 2022 @ 8:00 PM
Barry is a 40-something cultural worker whose career-averse lifestyle has led him to a personal and professional dead end. Supported only by his cheap apartment and team of misfit friends, Barry is perpetually between questionable jobs and even more questionable lovers. When Helen Hufflekugel, a seductively “contemporary” arts curator, offers him a gig mentoring a couple of wide-eyed queer youths in exchange for a slot in her next season, Barry reluctantly agrees. Little does he know that this last-ditch attempt to manifest old dreams will open a portal to another life he didn’t know he was already living elsewhere.
Mariana Valencia: HeeraJune 24 - June 26, 2022 @ 5:00 PM / 7:00 PM
Heera is a performance devised by Mariana Valencia and Abrons Arts Center Urban Youth Theater student Heera Gandhu that circumnavigates everyday observations, anecdotes, comedy, horror movies, dance, and coming of age. Their choreographic score navigates the textual elements of the performance in a witty and dynamic duet that explores performative presence.
