On Rabinowitz: “Words on the Street {calls upon} us to wake up, pay attention, and perceive the new complexity, hyperreality, surreality, and absurdity of life. It is a book for our times that is simultaneously raw, disturbing, sublimely beautiful, and haunting.” — Krysia Jopek, Diaphanous

On Marks: “Cheerily seductive … crafty juxtapositions, clashes and transformations…” — The New York Times

Words on the Street is a mystery, a ”what-done-it,” a crime in which all humanity is complicit. In this hybrid music-theatre performance, a baby is abducted, and the Seven Deadly Sins call a summit meeting at which they play out their power struggle. Pandemonium reigns in a dystopian world teaming with falsehood and plagued by threat.  This book of poetry, written by Anna Rabinowitz, has been transformed into a hybrid performance event, collaboratively conceived and developed by the writer, director Kristin Marting, video designer Lianne Arnold, and the late composer Matt Marks (1980-2018). The performance features a diverse ensemble of 7 performers including acclaimed soprano Lauren Flanigan (New York City Opera) and John Kelly (James Joyce’s The Dead), wielding original music, text, and video.

*Special Performance: Join us on October 30th for the Words on the Street opening night and benefit. Limited $100 tickets available for the opening night performance and access to a reception with the artists after the show.
