ECC is entering her sixth year of producing exciting new work! And this summer is no different. Four new plays created in response to the theme "This Is A Distraction" explore issues of identity in a world that is constantly changing. Inspired by the 24-hr news cycle, "This Is A Distraction" calls on it's artists to explore different identities through visual and performance art at a time when "difference" receives polarizing reactions.
The four plays will run in rep as a part of Exquisite Corpse Company's IFACP Raw Residency at at The Parlour in NYC. With a visual art gallery open to the public before performances, both visual and performance artists share what distraction looks like through their art.
