  • The Tiger Lillies Suicide for Christmas (Dec. 13-15)

    Commissioned by St. Ann's Warehouse, the new work from choreographer Antony (of Antony and the Johnsons) is "a new song cycle that revolves around polarities – male and female, life and death, darkness and light." Using "an off beat ensemble of vocals, strings, acoustic guitar, percussion and piano," The Crying Light features a score and lyrics written by Antony, in collaboration with composer/arranger, Nico Muhly.

  • TR Warszawa's Macbeth (June 2-30, 2008)
    Grzegorz Jarzyna directs the work from Poland's young theatre company TR Warszawa, which will perform outdoors, across the street from St. Ann's, in the Tobacco Warehouse on the Brooklyn Waterfront. His work brings "multi-media theatre to the limit, with contemporary images of modern, ritualistic warfare, technology and intrigue." The production utilizes a multi-tiered, three-chambered set and an underscore of original composition, pop songs, sound effects and spoken text. Tickets to shows at St. Ann's Warehouse, 38 Water St. (between Main and Dock St.) in Brooklyn, New York, are available by calling (718) 254-8779 or online at artsatstanns.org.
