Tennessee Williams goes for broke in his final full-length play, exploring the surreal, the nefarious, and the erotic in ways never before attempted by the great American master. The richest woman in the world, her gay husband and his young lover are thrust into a mystery world, defined by disorientation and paranoia, where they are held captive by omnipotent corporate forces. A cast of bizarre characters enters an increasingly threatening environment, and tensions reach a fever pitch as trust among the three protagonists begins to disintegrate. This stunning production, which includes 60 state-of-the-art LED panels and a set that surrounds the audience with 360 degrees of two-way mirrors, takes its characters-and its audience-to a wholly unique theatrical realm that's every bit as thrilling as it is dangerous.
Adapted by Thomas Kilroy with Stella Feehily, Trudie Styler, and Mickey Sumner

On March 27th, 2012, Culture Project staged and live-streamed an ambitious program called Blueprint for Accountability: The Wall Street Washington Connection, hosted by The Lannan Center for Poetics and Social Practice at Georgetown University, confronting the economic crisis in the United States and provoking fresh dialogue about the role of financial and corporate powers in the political and democratic life of this country.

On a snowy Easter Sunday, Monica embarked on a bicycle journey across the vodka-soaked roads of Poland in search of the man who haunts her, a man of power, genius, fame and violence; her grandfather. Along her path, she squats and pogos with anarchist punks in old factories, barely escapes a knifing by Neo-Nazis, hides in churches and is hypnotized in a para-theatrical workshop. You will be led by many eccentric guides through this surreal landscape; a mohawked bike messenger, the ghost of a Norwegian bride, a girl with a third eye and your bewildered hostess, Monica Dudárew Ossetynska Hunken, heiress to cult and Slavic royalty.

“One of the most strikingly original works to be seen in New York.”
And God Created Great Whales is a haunting musical adventure that delves into the psyche of a composer who is trying to create an opera based on Herman Melville’s Moby Dick. Desperately fighting against a disease that is eating away at his mind, he must rely on a tape recorder to remind him of yesterday’s instructions to himself. Rinde Eckert displays his full creative force in this frenzied, funny, romantic, and moving play.
