    In "For Rent," poor, rural teenagers come to the big city to find wealth
    and prosperity. But in the dark, dangerous public parks of this
    cosmopolitan city, they are instead led into prostitution and violence.
    This stylistically innovative and vocally stunning play from acclaimed
    Turkish playwright, Ozen Yula, explores the criminal underworld of
    modern-day Istanbul through the desperate lives of the young people who
    flock there.

    jealousy spark among the family of Santiago and Ofelia as the introduction
    of automated machines threaten their existence.


    Charlotte's Song

     

    Fri, Dec 7, 7:30pm

    Conceived and Written by Nancy Ferragallo. Directed by Andreas Robertz
    and Mario Golden. (Lab 101 work-in-progress)
     

     Free Admission  (For tickets: rsvp-lpac@lagcc.cuny.edu)
     

    Charlotte's Song explores a daughter's reality of growing up with her
    schizophrenic mother and how that impacted her life. Through the lens of
    fragmented narratives, letters, movement sequences, and shifting auditory
    landscapes, we hear the language of disconnect that announces the underlying
    fragility of the mother; both her physical and mental collapse. The symbolic
    figure of a doll provides the emotional link between mother and daughter
    while the role of narrator shifts between the central characters.
