Using movement, found text, and machine learning algorithms, they summon the Salem witch panic out of America’s colonial shadows. Featuring an all-queer ensemble, TERMINER shines a light on contemporary systems of power, and casts a spell of resistance and repair.

Philip Wesley Gates is a non-binary director, performance maker and writer/scholar currently based in Pittsburgh. Their work draws awareness to the theatre as a collective experience, and to the web of relations between bodies, histories,and actions. Philip holds an MFA in Directing from Carnegie Mellon University.

Tayo Aluko brings the life of Paul Robeson to the Alphabet City

City of Asylum (2018)

Tayo Aluko:
Call Mr. Robeson

Monday, November 12th
7:00 pm

Paul Robeson was a great and famous actor, singer and civil rights campaigner. When he became progressively too radical and outspoken for the establishment’s liking, he was summoned to appear before the House Un-American Activities Committee to give the most difficult and important performance of his career.
Call Mr Robeson

“”For those who know little about Robeson, this touring production offers an admirable introduction to a great pioneering performer.” — The Guardian

Nigerian-English baritone Tayo Aluko’s one-man show Call Mr. Robeson presents a roller-coaster journey through Robeson’s remarkable and eventful life.

Through some of the most famous songs and speeches from Robeson’s tempestuous career, this one-night-only theater performance highlights how Robeson’s pioneering and heroic (but largely forgotten) political activism led many to describe him as the forerunner of the civil rights movement.

The Beales were Jacqueline Kennedy’s aunt and cousin, respectively. Set at Grey Gardens, the Bouviers’ mansion in East Hampton, Long Island, the musical weaves documentary text with imaginative speculation to trace the Beales’ journey from royalty to ruin.
