Flux Sundays:

Are you an actor, playwright or director?

Join Flux Theatre Ensemble’s unique play development process and vibrant artist community for their weekly workshop, Flux Sundays. Once a week, up to 30 theatre artists gather for three hours in the afternoon to lightly stage new scenes from playwrights in the community. Not a theatre artist, but want to get involved? Feel free to join us for the final hour of Flux Sundays, where we share all of the scenes, and see plays in their earliest stages of development brought to vivid life by a welcoming community of artists.

Official Dates for Flux Sundays: 2/15, 2/22, 3/1 and 3/15 from 4:00pm – 6:00pm
Email Flux Sundays to learn more about how you can participate.

The Salvage Project:

Behind every special object we keep, there’s something even more important: a story.

Flux Theatre Ensemble’s The Salvage Project is a series of story-circles where communities come together to share stories about the precious objects of their lives. Through the sharing of these stories, we’ll learn what matters most to the people with whom we share this city and why. The Salvage Project culminates in a free, full-length production of the world premiere play Salvage, which imagines a band of searchers looking for precious objects left behind in a post-catastrophe NYC. Interested participants in The Salvage Project will have the option of sharing their object as part of the scenic design of the production, as well as opportunities to have their stories transformed by professional playwrights into short monologues. Stories and objects may also shared as part of The Salvage Project blog.

Email Sol Crespo to learn more and participate in The Salvage Project.

The Salvage Project WORLD PREMIER: Thursday, April 10th 2015 at 8:00pm
