Dixon Place Presents She-She-She Nov. 14th
Hook & Eye Theater weaves together stories from America’s New Deal era with the modern day to create She-She-She, a magical abstraction of wilderness and identity. Inspired by the friendship between Eleanor Roosevelt and Pauli Murray, She-She-She follows the stories of six women as they forge their journeys up Bear Mountain, wrestling with the intersections of their inheritance as they are informed and molded by their past. Full of joy, soul and musicality, Hook & Eye’s work has been called “rich, intelligent, funny,” and “a testament to the collaborative process of theater making.”
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.
