City: New York

Additional Notes:
Now, in this book of fictional set pieces, Korine reinvents the novelform, capturing the fragmented moments of life observed through thedemented lens of media, TV, and teen obsession. With a filmmaker's eyeand a prankster's glee, this bizarre collection of jokes,half-remembered scenes, dialogue fragments, movie ideas, and suicidenotes is an episodic, epigrammatic ode to the world of images. This isthe ultimate postmodern video novel -- funny, offensive, primitive.Korine is the voice of his media-savvy generation, and A Crackup atthe Race Riots is the satiric love child of his darkly bizarreimagination.”- Double Day Press on the novel A Crack Up at the RaceRiots “Its about a race war…and the Jewish people sit in trees and theblacks are run by MC Hammer and the whites are run by Vanilla Ice.”-Harmony Korine on A Crack Up at the Race Riots. In his NYC directorial debut, Toney Brown takes text directly fromthe novel and brings it to life onstage with a cast of sevenperformers. It will meditate on Artaudian notion of psychology andsuicide: the term mad is thrust upon those whom society determinesspeaks unbearable truths. It will meditate on the notion of theatricalcontent and form. At the end, the performers kill themselves. It takesplace in America.

From the creative team behind the Tony-Award-winning hit, Falsettos, A New Brain is the story of a neurotic, frustrated composer, confronted with creative block and a terminal illness, who finds salvation in the healing power of art. The New York Times described the show as an attractively abstract, shadow-filled production [that] is essentially one long, harmonious thank-you note for second chances in life.

Anil Salem, an Indian American whoseHindustani-tinged, intricate string solos belie a love of Irish folkmusic and breakdancing, wonders whether he will be able to give up amedical career and, like his grandfather, make a living as a musicianand music teacher? Dr. Pure Silver More, a rapper and Times Square CDhawker, is torn between trying to take rap back to its protest rootsand trying to support his son.Can their dreams survive the pessimism of veterans who have struggledin the man-made caverns of the MTA for decades and are only too eagerto pass on their education of hard knocks.
