Theater for the New City's Dream Up Festival 2015
City: New York

Additional Notes:
Daddy's Boy written and directed by Cristian Avila begins in the ring, with 17 year old national wrestling champion Milo facing off against his childhood best friend, J.T. This match is not just a physical battle but a battle of values, since Milo identifies as queer and J.T. represents the homophobia of Milo's Texas hometown that his two fathers fled from for more liberal Manhattan. As Milo is about to win the match, homophobic slurs are directed at him which serves to fuel his victory. Milo's victory sashay and pink singlet are recorded and the footage goes viral, prompting a media backlash that triggers a horrific assault on his life. This tragic event and Milo's bravery drive his straight acting dads to face their internalized homophobia and fears they have projected onto their child. Can they come together as a family to support their son as he embarks on the long road to forgiveness and healing?

City: New York

Additional Notes:
Invasion! is a meta-theatrical orientalist critique on ethnic stereotypes of people from South Asia and the Middle East. It is a tornado of words, images and ideas, all centered around a magical name: Abulkasem. At once hilarious, disturbing and poignant, this deeply subversive play deconstructs concepts of the OTHER and forces us to confront our own cultural identity.

Medusa and The Oddity (https://medusaandtheoddity.wordpress.com), playwright William Hugel takes an impressionistic look at the stigma of mental illness and the declining power of women in society. The plays, directed by Chad Chenail. Medusa adapts the Greek myth into the present day to examine global violence against women. The Oddity is a journey into the dark world of Western psychiatry and the suffering of the human soul. Both plays exist in a disjointed and unstable present. The reality of the space is dim and unwelcoming. Movement and rhythm play an important role, with drums a motivating factor in Medusa and dance being a major tool of communication in The Oddity.
