06/13– “Bionic Garden” Exhibition at Flux Factory
Open now until June 24th

Flux Factory is proud to present Bionic Garden, an exhibition that unveils how humans have adapted to grow plants in the most unlikely of ways and places. Viewers can expect to see indoor lawns, lofted vegetable gardens, crops that tweet when they’re in need of water, mobile gardens, new ways to subvert the homogenization of seed production, vines that have something to say, vertiginous grass, creepy containers which crumble as the fruits of their existence take over, and even use a spa getaway for their own tired, limp houseplants. In Bionic Garden, Flux Factory invites viewers to re-imagine urban spaces both private and public in an effort to bring resourcefulness and ingenuity to urban communities.

Address: 39-31 29th Street, Queens, NY 11101

Between 39th and 40th Aves. Subway: N/W to 39th Avenue

– These Seven Sicknesses @ The Flea Theater
Wed, June 6, 2012 – Sun, July 1, 2012
Tues – Sat: 6:30 pm
Sun: 4:30 pm

 

After a long run in the beginning of the year, the critically acclaimed and Drama Desk Award nominated These Seven Sicknesses by Sean Graney returns to The Flea Theater, directed by Ed Sylvanus Iskandar and starring The Bats.

In “These Seven Sicknesses,” Sophocles’ seven surviving plays, “Oedipus,” “In Trachis,” “Philoktetes,” “In Colonus,” “Ajax,” “Elektra” and “Antigone,” combine with music and food to create a stunning portrait of the human condition, where the intermingling of chance and fate yields disquieting results.

The Flea is re-partnering with neighborhood favorites, Macao Trading Co. and Billy’s Bakery to provide an included dinner and dessert for each performance. The acting company will serve audience members at this unique event.

The performances will consist of 90 minutes of play, an intermission for dinner, 60 minutes of play, an intermission for dessert, and final 60 minutes of play.

Address: 41 White Street, New York, NY  10013
(between Broadway and Church Streets)
Tel: (212) 226-0051
