We are almost halfway to our fundraising goal and we still have 12 days to go!Help us reach the finish line by contributing and spreading the word— we can't do it without you! Take a look at some of the newest additions to our program this year, I am sure it will convince you that your contributions help present amazing art.
We have assembled a really exciting team for this year's 4×4: NYC meets the Med program: NYC directors Doug Howe,Tamilla Woodard and Ana Margineanu (of PopUp Theatrics) and Noelle Ghoussaini will be directing new plays from Kosovo (Jeton Neziraj), Greece (Lena Kitsopoulou), Syria (Mohammad Al Attar) and Catalonia (Esteve Soler). It's going to be a fascinating festival weekend of readings and discussions!
We have just confirmed the participation of Talia Beck, one of the rising stars in Israeli contemporary dance. Talia will be performing alongside Nejla Yatkin – a unique opportunity to see two exceptional women on stage in New York!
The full schedule and program announcement is coming soon – stay tuned!

From the writer and director of the 2010 PlayCo hit Enjoy, Sonic Life… probes the everyday lives of urban adults. Everything seems comfortable – jobs, relationships. But beneath the surface runs a powerful undercurrent of longing. Sonic Life… is a quirky, dreamlike and poignant theatrical experience from some of the foremost theatre artists of the US and Japan.
