An indie theater & film company stampeding through NYC!
Elephant Run District is pleased to announce two great projects for the summer of 2013!
Performances: Every Saturday and Sunday, July 6 to 28 at 4 p.m. (no show July 13), near the southeast corner of the Great Hill in Central Park. An additional performance will take place at the Brecht Forum, corner of West and Bank Streets, on Tuesday, July 23 at 7:30 p.m.
This summer, ERD will produce three rarely performed one acts by Bertolt Brecht- The Elephant Calf (1926), In Search of Justice (1938) and The Exception and the Rule (1929). This imaginative production will fuse physical and political theatre, bringing these early 20th century works into the contemporary world of the Occupy Movement, Citizens United, Stop & Frisk actions and Stand Your Ground laws.
