Meet another one of The Tank’s fantastic Theater Curators, Alex Vlahov! Alex just pulled off the enormous task of curating our inaugural Noir Fest, which featured noir-inspired performances as varied as clowning, improv, short film, a gender-reversed reading of Dashiell Hammet’s The Maltese Falcon, and a panel discussion with award-winning crime fiction authors Reed Farrel Coleman and Tim McLoughlin. Alex himself even took to the stage to premiere his one-man show A Simple Art! We can’t wait to see what he’ll bring in next.
Neo-Futurists from New York, Chicago and San Francisco unite to bring Too Much Light to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival!
Beautiful people of Tumblr, we need your help to make our odyssey to Scotland a reality!
We’re a small nonprofit theatre company which means that we don’t have a lot of money for things like hotel rooms and plane tickets.
But you — yes, you — have the power to change all that! (And you could get some pretty cool stuff in return.)
Hey friends, you should go support the Neo-Futurists’ campaign to get to Edinburgh Fringe! Not only would you be racking up karma for your next life, but you could also get some awesome mementos to show off to everyone you know. But go quick, the campaign ends soon!
Feeling beat by the bright blue optimism of summer? Need a tall drink and some gritty entertainment as a getaway? Come cool down at the Tank with our first ever Noir Festival and enjoy our series of dark, pulpy entertainment. New plays, short films, clowning, improv, readings, a panel discussion, and homages to the greats (Chandler, Hammet) are all included in our eclectic lineup! See you there, wiseguy.
Finally, meet Emma Zbiral-Teller, the Tank’s film curator! Emma’s work focuses on amazing, beautiful, and haunting video installations that find a home here at the Tank. Her past work includes FACE ME, an expressive one-night only installation that explored space and intimacy between people. We’re beyond excited about what she has planned for our upcoming season!
Meet Nisse Greenberg, the storytelling curator for the Tank. Nisse curates FOUR monthly series for us (!!!): DINGMANTICS, BAD FEELINGS, VHS PRESENTS, and LONG STORY LONG. This translates to one show each and every week! Nisse has been doing fantastic work for us, providing a stage for over 50 storytellers every year in New York City. If you’ve never seen a storytelling show before, come check out this fascinating, resurgent art form!
Thanks to all you lovely folks for a successful fundraising campaign!
A big Tank-sized THANK YOU to everyone for supporting us during our June fundraising campaign! Thanks to your generosity, WE MET OUR MATCH GOAL with over eighty individual contributions!! We love you lots, and we can’t wait to show you what we’re cooking up here at The Tank for the next season. For now, enjoy meeting our last two curators, and we’ll catch you on flipside…
Meet Olney Edmondson, the Tank’s second dance curator! We’re very excited about Olney’s new series, CULTURECATION, that’s starting this fall season - she’s going to highlight dance practices from cultures around the globe and give performers from different cultural backgrounds a chance to shine on our stage. If all you know about dance is western ballet, prepare to be blown away.
Today is the last day you can help us meet our matching gift! Don’t delay -donate $25 before midnight tonight and support Olney and the fantastic artists she puts on our stage. We’ll love you forever if you do!
Meet Josh Luxenberg, one of the Tank’s theater curators! The work that Josh brings into the Tank includes PUPPET PLAYLIST, our quarterly puppet slam set to a particular musician or genre of music. He also co-curates one of our signature pieces of programming, FLINT & TINDER, a series of new physical shows that each enjoy three-week runs at our theater in the heart of Manhattan! Josh’s work supports over 100 (!!!) boundary-pushing theater artists each year.
Support Josh and the artists he spotlights by donating $25 to the Tank today! We need 38 donations by Monday, June 30th to reach our matching gift - if we make it, your $25 donation becomes $50 and we’ll be in great shape as our fall season begins. But we need you (yeah, you! right there behind your computer screen!) to make it happen. So don’t be shy and donate today!
