The Subjective Theatre Company has rescheduled its benefit party for Friday, March 10, and will hold the event in Manhattan.
The fundraiser, which features live music, dancing, and drinks, will benefit the theatre company's newest project: AudioSuite. AudioSuite, by Roella Caparas and David Hughes, Jr., is a hip-hop installation musical experience that utilizes tribal drums, lullabies, and a medley of sounds from nature and city life to tell the story of the creation myth. The show will run March 24-26 at the Collective Unconscious, located at 279 Church St.
The company was founded in 2001, under a mission statement to produce a wide range of politically and socially relevant theatre -- and make sure the general public had access to quality works within each community by presenting their productions at no cost. Under the artistic and managerial direction of Zachary R. Mannheimer, all productions, festivals, educational programs and events across New York City are free because the company's members donate more than 4000 hours a year to sustain their unique approach.
The benefit will take place in the second-floor ballroom of the Ukrainian Center, located at 136 2nd Ave. between 8th and 9th streets, in the East Village, from 7 p.m. to midnight. Admission costs $10, and beer will cost $3 all night. For more information, visit www.subjectivetheatre.org.
