SPECIAL
ANNIVERSARY
EDITION

Since its inception in 1994, over a hundred emerging companies and more than a thousand theatre artists have presented their work in Ice Factory. Today many of those companies are quite well-known, as they continue to thrive and shape the theatre landscape.

In honor of our 25th anniversary, we asked a few of our illustrious alumni who they think is moving the new theatre dial these days.

Our guest curators are Elevator Repair Service, Pig Iron Theatre, New Georges, Second Generation, the TEAM, and Half Straddle. Ice Factory 2018 is their answer.

Fridays On Ice is our late-night performance salon, featuring artists typically found performing in nightclubs, bars, and private apartments.

Each evening is hosted by an impresario of this alternative storytelling community and features cutting-edge micro-works by some of NYC’s cagiest short-form theater-makers.

ONE-EIGHTH THEATRE
NUMBNESS: Chapter 2
An Archive Residency First Look Showing

A visceral, highly-stylized, unforgiving tragicomedy of the unfelt. An exploration of the physical and psychological state of feeling numb. What does it mean to be numb? Why are we numb? Is it possible to feel again? MORE INFO...



July 4 – 7
SAINT FORTUNE
ONE SMALL STEP
Guest Curator: Elevator Repair Service

Saint Fortune journeys through the Sixth Dimension to travel back in time to a moment of great ambition, the 1969 Apollo 11 Moon Landing. What they find there will change the course of alternate history forever. Utilizing an immersive sound and video design, they invite us to consider multiple dimensions, while encouraging us to care for the one world we know.

July 11 – 14
HANNA LEA NOVAK
THE OPERA IS ALWAYS ON THE TABLE
Guest Curator: Half Straddle

A pre-teen girl and her mother attempt to navigate a tragic loss, both together and apart. A response to Sophocles’ classic tragedy Ajax as filtered through personal family history, the play considers the mythic and mundane elements of girlhood and family.

SARAH EINSPANIER / DEEPALI GUPTA / CAITLIN SULLIVAN
MADONNA col BAMBINO

July 25 – 28
ANTIGRAVITY PERFORMANCE PROJECT
DEAR DIARY LOL
Guest Curator: Pig Iron Theatre Company

Born verbatim from the actual real-life tween-teen diaries of the show’s creators. Laugh, cringe, and cry at their most earnest desires, deepest fears, secret shames and terrible poetry, written as coming-of-age girls in the late 90s/early 2000s.

August 1 – 4
ZHAILON LEVINGSTON
THE HOLE
Guest Curator: the TEAM

This riff on Cat on a Hot Tin Roof explores the relationship and personal struggles of two inmates in solitary confinement as they grapple with love, and face the choice between growing up and choosing life or succumbing to the pressures of "the hole."
MORE INFO...



August 8 – 11
THE DRUNKARD'S WIFE
MADAME LYNCH
An Archive Residency First-Look Showing

A spectacle with music about Eliza Lynch, an Irish prostitute, who through fate and machination became de facto Empress of Paraguay in the mid-19th century. Later reviled for fomenting war, this show focuses on her doomed project of bringing European high culture to the inhabitants of a country that neither understood nor desired what she offered.

August 15 – 18
CHUM / GRAGTMANS
LOVE
Guest Curator: Second Generation Productions

Two people meet, and the sky cracks open. LOVE is an exploration of love in its myriad of forms: the good, the bad, the ugly, the beautiful, the mysterious and all the spaces in between. With original music and spoken-word.
