The downtown Manhattan venue will also offer the American premiere of Germany's 24 Hours Are Not a Day and the New York debut of Thaddeus Phillips' ¡El Conquistador! The 2006-20007 lineup (subject to change) is as follows:

  • ¡El Conquistador! (September)
    Thaddeus Phillips portrays a Colombian doorman who takes on his titular alter-ego as his telenovela-style story comes to life in this quixotic tale. The collaboration with Tatiana and Victor Mallarino, which "incorporates a stunning set design, footage shot in Colombia and the voyage of Christopher Columbus," is directed by Tatiana Mallarino.
  • A new work by Martha Clarke (November)
    The world premiere of an as-yet-untitled theatrical work created, directed and choreographed by Clarke (Vienna: Lusthaus (revisited)) will use "dance, live music, text and visual imagery to re-tell four Luigi Pirandello stories featured in the Taviani Brothers' 1984 film 'Kaos.'"
  • All That I Will Ever Be by Alan Ball (January 2007)
    Jo Bonney (Some Girl(s), The Seven) will direct this world premiere from the Academy Award-winning pen of "American Beauty" writer Ball — his first new play in more than a dozen years. The tale that unfolds is "seen through the eyes of two young men in Los Angeles, one a restless native Angeleno, the other an enigmatic immigrant from the Middle East."
  • 24 Hours Are Not a Day written and directed by René Pollesch (April 2007)
    NYTW presents the American premiere of the work from current director of Berlin's Prater Theater. The drama, which "cunningly explores the consequences of globalization on our public and private lives," marks the U.S. debut for the European artist.
