News   RadioHole's New Off-Broadway Show Is a Fluke, April 21-May 7 An piscine pun has given the avant-garde, downtown group Radiohole the title for its new show.

Inspired by Herman Melville's immortal book "Moby Dick," Radiohole's show is called Fluke. The play puports to dive "into an entire ocean on stage. This strange and thrilling tale atomizes reality, magnifies perception, and is poised to usher in a new era of 'Oceanic Times.'" Inserted into Melville's epic tale of a man and a whale is acquatic movie star Esther Williams.

The full show title is FLUKE: Solemn Mysteries of the Ancient Order of the Deep or Dick, Dick, Dick. It will be staged at P.S 122 beginning April 21 and run through May 7.

Radiohole's modus operandi is to start with a theme. The company's members then work collectively to create a full-length piece, using a variety of performance techniques, fractured texts and re-imagined technology.

Fluke features Radiohole founding members Eric Dyer, Erin Douglass, Maggie Hoffman, and Scott Halvorsen Gillette as Esther Williams.

Past Radiohole shows include Bender, Wurst and My Name Is Still Radiohole.
