Racoco is honored to have been asked to perform at chashama's 20th anniversary gala. Rachel Cohen, Masumi Kishimoto, Megan Schardt, Mary Staub, and Susan Steinman will invite attendees into a shifting paper landscape to the musical stylings of Lynn Wright.

As part of Emerging Artist Theater's New Works Series, Racoco presents "Slaughter on Nth Avenue," a snappy Broadway-style dance number inspired by journalist Glenn Greenwald, Kurt Jooss's dance and war parable The Green Table, Mel Brooks, and Busby Berkeley, romping through terrorism, troop deployment, indefinite detention, illegal wiretapping, cherry-picked alliances, Islamophobia, waterboarding, high-level immunity, embedded journalists, prosecution and persecution of whistleblowers, assassination of citizens, spying, and public powerlessness and ambivalence.

Racoco shares the program with other work-in-progress (click on ticket link to see each evening's lineup). Each evening is followed by an audience feedback session with the directors.

With design by Stephanie Beck
