This world premiere will blend Rock, Tango, Jazz and Punk music with contemporary dance to re-imagine Karel Capek's original 1921 classic, R.U.R Rossum's Universal Robots. This play that started it all, introducing the word ROBOT into the world's lexicon and into our fantasies, is reexamined for the 21st Century.
This project is sponsored, in part, by the Greater New York Arts Development Fund of the >b>New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, administered by the Brooklyn Arts Council, Inc. (BAC).
We have been refining Adhesive's mission statement to better reflect our work. Here is Adhesive's current mission:
Adhesive Theater Project is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit theater company dedicated to collaborating with artists of all disciplines, particularly artists with a non-theatrical background. By challenging these artists to work in the theater we create new perspectives for live performance. By integrating live music, visual arts, cross cultural performance techniques, metaphor, and narrative storytelling, we create epic experiences that excite the audience's imagination.
Adhesive Theater Project recently received its first grant through the Brooklyn Arts Council (BAC) Community Arts Regrant Program. A regrant is when a larger granting organization, in this case New York City's Department of Cultural Affairs, gives a grant to a smaller organization, BAC, for them to distribute to various organizations.
During the course of the run approximately 600 individuals attended this performance and 20 young people participated in the puppet workshop.
On the 4th and 5th of August Adhesive Theater Project participated in a dance-theater festival hosted in Big Dance Theater's former space, known as 'The Stable,' in the D.U.M.B.O. section of Brooklyn. This marked Adhesive's first excursion into the realm of Dance Theater. Resident playwright Jake Hooker created the text of our piece, titled Hysteria: HYSTERIA. Approximately 150 audience members attended the event.
Adhesive Theater Project just joined the Alliance of Resident Theaters / New York, better known as A.R.T. / New York.
A.R.T. / New York is the service organization for the nation's largest, most artistically influential, and most culturally diverse theatre community: Off Broadway. Founded in 1972, A.R.T. / New York currently serves close to 400 not-for-profit theatres and related organizations. A.R.T. / New York members serve over 6 million theatregoers annually, constitute the single largest source of new work entering the American repertory, and have produced 15 winners of the Pulitzer Prize for Drama.
