The TMT Stein Lab: When this you see remember me.

PART I
White Wines (after Plays)
Lead Artist: Nic Adams
Texts: White Wines/Plays

Please join us at 27 rue de Fleurus for a salon of hermetic curiosities. Come enjoy our collection of fine art, and partake in the conversation on plays. White wines will be served, but not turkey and bones. Wear your finest, tiniest hat, and steel yourself for slumber-party-style punch-drunk giggle-fits. You’re welcome. We thank you.

Five Historic Children Who Are Not
Lead Artist: Nehassaiu deGannes
Texts: Third Historic Drama/Three Sisters Who Are Not Sisters/Accents in Alsace

Rising waters, dredge of memory, in the hoof of tear gas & dogs—a roadside goddess! The silent nod. A tv revolution. It’s all child’s play, after all.

ACT SECOND
Erik Satie / If I Told Him / Erik Satie
Lead Artist: Adam R. Burnett
Texts: If I Told Him/Erik Satie/Geography/Land of Nations [Subtitle and Ask Asia]/Van or Twenty Years Later

Does theater make you nervous? Not here! Join us as we uncover the comfort and joy in Gertrude’s portraits and landscapes, exploring time as a ceaseless, ecstatic flow and attempt the impossible of being absolutely in the present: here, now. No, here now.

A NICE STORY or WE GET IT, GERTRUDE
Lead Artist: Megan Hill
Texts: Reflections on the Atomic Bomb/A Play Called Not and Now/Flirting at the Bon Marche

Too much information. No common sense. A mysterious assemblage. Famous friends. A dance that looks like a dance but is not a dance. Maybe a cello. Maybe a laugh. Maybe a maybe a maybe a maybe. Wake a question. Eat an answer. Rinse. Repeat. That’s the answer.

LAST PART
She Counts Her Dresses
Lead Artist: Nikki Calonge
Texts: Miss Furr and Miss Skeene/Counting Her Dresses

Inspired by the illustrations of Ethel Mars and Maud Hunt Squire, She Counts Her Dresses celebrates Gertrude Stein’s depiction of this real-life couple through the compulsion to travel and dance. Miss Furr and Miss Skeene demand that the audience read with us, be gay with us, be regularly gay with us, and to sing until we can be proud of tomorrow.

STEIN-DRAG
Lead Artist: Aaron Ethan Green

Love notes exchanged between Mr. Cuddle-Wuddle and Baby Precious, otherwise known as Gertrude Stein and Alice B. Toklas, provide the building blocks for this whirlwind drag romp.

About the TMT Lab:
The TMT Lab offers smaller, fully produced productions and has enlisted the talents of over 1,000 theater artists since 1993. At the helm of each production is a Lead Artist—whether that’s a director, actor, writer, designer, or puppeteer, we believe anyone can drive a piece! We here at TMT curate each season’s Lab under an overarching theme. We then work with each Lead Artist to find the right source material, and from then on they are provided a stipend, budget, artistic resources and, most importantly, the freedom to shape their work.
