They Might Be Napping Press Release

 

The New Yorker, Dance Calendar, May 2008

NICOLL + ORECK
Jessica Nicoll and Barry Oreck, veterans of physicalized black comedy, team up with the improvisational actors Laura Livingston and Mike Durkin for a bit of we-couldn't-make-this-stuff-up social commentary called "They Might Be Napping." The subject is recent man-made calamity--global warming, Wall Street fraud. The suggestion is that we must have been asleep at the 'wheel. Rolling stools
facilitate some of the somnambulism, and Amir Khosrowpour provides the music to move (and snooze) to. (The Performance Project @ University Settlement, 184 Eldridge St. 212-453-4532. May 5-6 at 7:30 and May 7 at 3 and 7:30.)
