Intimate street performance by the SUKKOS MOB
in their latest sci-fi harvest vehicle, Don’t Let the Sheep Get in Your Eyes.

In the year 2010 the Sukkos Mob was too panicked to feel joy. They did not know how to protect themselves. The earth was bleeding. They knew their strategy of non-engagement was not a strategy. So, once again, as they had so many times before, the Yiddish Mob left their homes and set out wandering in the desert of the human spirit for 40 years. They left home to find home again, to find an enhanced idea of the human spirit, to find solutions to take care of each other and the planet…
Stay tuned for the full Sukkos Mob show schedule which will be posted on GSW's web site blog and on Tablet Magazine's Facebook page. The Sukkos Mob is a Jenny Romaine/Great Small Works production sponsored by Tablet Magazine and Grilli Earth Walls.

AND THEN, indoors at

ONE ARM RED, 10 Jay Street on the 9th floor,

followed by PERFORMANCES:

David McDonough and Adda Birnir of PAPER TIGER TELEVISION will present images and video from the Gulf, which is part of a new Paper Tiger Television production focusing on the BP Oil Spill. In the DIY spirit of Paper Tiger Television, the piece focuses on how individual, private citizens employed whatever tools they had at their disposal to respond to the BP Oil Spill.

The latest installment of the news-based serial
“Toy Theater of Terror As Usual, Episode 12: Desert and Ocean”
A response to the Gulf oil spill, drone warfare in Afghanistan, and immigrantophobia.

Emma Alabaster – bass, Emily McCabe – cello, Laura Vuksinich – drums,
Cassandra Burrows - alto sax, and Erin Bell - tenor horn.
They really, especially like it when people have a good time at a show. Their musical brains are coming from some of the branches of American folk music, mostly jazz and the occasional nod to southern hymns and ballads. They also like experimenting. Frankly, they poke around in puddles of dissonance. But, sometimes they just care that their music sounds beautiful. At the end of the show, if you've squinted your eyes to better see if they are making those notes on purpose, thought about dancing even a little bit, and laughed with your teeth showing, they would feel like they've done a good weird deed for the day.

Motley Holler of How Do You Do

Tanya Solomon, Rebecca Heinegg and Billy Schultz bring their clown, ballet and eccentric dance backgrounds together to form this evening’s work. Individually they have performed on variety stages the western world over and are happy to come together for this evening. The piece was ensemble generated and directed by Billy Schultz.
Performed with The Curious Shape of Hens.

The Motley Holler of How Do You Do is a motive agent used to increase the volume and diversify the texture of spectacles such as weddings, funerals, religious ceremonies, walks through the park, poker games and North American shopping holidays.

Special guest vocalist XAVIER will sing songs of uncertainty.

His vocal skills have received uncoerced praise from the some of the music industry’s best including TV on the Radio, Mary J. Blige, The Rapture, Pete Tong, D’Angelo, Ashford & Simpson and Lena Horne, as well as a Diesel U Music Award nomination. He’s hollered on records with Scissor Sister Del Marquis, Basement Jaxx vocalists Vula Malinga and Sharlene Hector, Stephin Merritt, and LL Cool J. UK-based music magazine NME calls his music “glorious” and Billboard magazine contends he’s “pure magic.” His recent collaboration with the late Arthur Russell’s bandmates and vocalist Nomi Ruiz is set to be released this fall.
