Please consider joining us on the eve of the Inauguration of the American President as we vow to be a light in the darkness for 2017.
WHAT: Members of the theater community - from Broadway to regional theaters to high schools and colleges and community theaters – will gather outside theaters and join in a simultaneous action to 1) create “light” for challenging times ahead, and 2) make a pledge to our community. Ours is to celebrate the diverse voices of Brooklyn's artistic community, and reaffirm our commitment to themes of earth justice.
WHEN: JANUARY 19, 2017, 5:15 P.M. The ceremony will begin promptly at 5:30 p.m. to insure simultaneity with other theaters.
WHERE: Outside the Actors Fund Arts Center - 160 Schermerhorn St. in Brooklyn. MAP
We expect the lighting ceremony to last 20 minutes, and we invite you to join us for DRINKS at the recently opened Hilton next door following the event.
HAPPY NEW YEAR! Hope to see you there on the 19th!
Hook & Eye is an ensemble company of theater-makers, actors, dancers, musicians and artists based in Brooklyn, NY. We build totally new theatrical pieces full of joyful athleticism, soul, and song. Every year or so, a new play is brought to life.
We teach play-writing at New York's Professional Performing Arts School . . .
. . . and offer 100% free PlayLabs where new ideas are brought forward, built, and developed . . . and we meet with and foster our artistic community.
Want to Help?
We start with a snag,
an idea that hooks our collective interest. Using improvisation, discussion, and research, we tug at the thread until we've found
a story to unravel.
Working with our writers, musicians and artists to focus our vision, we knit the moments together, add layers, and get the story ready for fastening
with our audience.
While the timeline of each project varies, it generally takes over a year to conceive, build, and produce each new work.
