The Arctic Group and IRT

August 31-September 10

at IRT
154 Christopher Street. New York, NY #3B

The Arctic Group is proud to announce the launch of the 1st New York International FRIDGE Festival (yes, fridge.)

Born in response to the news that the NY Fringe Festival would not take place in the summer of 2017, FRIDGE Fest is a multidisciplinary theater festival featuring new works of all genres. Audiences can expect a run of unique, thought-provoking plays by both established and emerging artists. All plays include — nay, feature — a fridge.

Half of all the performances at FRIDGE Fest will be Fill Our Fridge nights, in which tickets can be purchased with non-perishable goods instead of money. All these donations will be delivered to City Harvest, an organization that provides food to community food programs throughout New York City. All 9pm shows will be Fill Our Fridge Nights.

Each ticket-holder will see two plays in one evening. Audience members are kindly asked to stay for both shows, a total of 80 minutes, with a brief (and musical) intermission between shows.

The festival features 10 new plays by 10 playwrights. They are: Moving Day by Jenny King, Rock Paper Scissors by Suzanne Willett, Nick and Zoe by Daniel Talbott, Sad Indie Love Song by Steve McMahon, Funny Voices, Or A Thing I Cannot Name, by Matthew Minnicino, Two Below Zero by MJ Halberstadt, Scarcity Freezer by Glenn Marla, no seconds by Korde Arrington Tuttle, Joy by Katie Cappiello, and What’s In Your Fridge? by Jordan G. Teicher.

What's In Your Fridge?
By Jordan G. Teicher

The Arctic Group is a (mostly) theater collective with members hailing from five continents. Core founding members are: Charlotte Arnoux, Adrian Burke, Victoria Giambalvo, Florence LeBas, and Ran Xia. Associate Artist: Jake Geary. We create a space for the harmonious, explorative destruction. We resist comfort and convenience. Failure is our common language. Disclaimers are our enemy. With an appetite for the irregular and an itch for the bizarre, we collide, connect, collaborate and create.

IRT is a grassroots laboratory for independent theater and performance in New York City, providing space and support to a new generation of artists. Tucked away in the old Archive Building in Greenwich village, IRT’s mission is to build a community of emerging and established artists by creating a home for the development and presentation of new work. Some of the artists we have supported include Young Jean Lee, Reggie Watts and Mike Daisey.

This program is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Dependent of Cultural Affairs, New York State Council on the arts, and The Nancy Quinn Fund, a project of ART-NY.
