The Following Evening is an intimate portrait of four artists set against the landscape of New York, a city of perpetual loss and renewal. A unique collaboration between two theater-making couples a generation apart -Ellen Maddow and Paul Zimet of Talking Band, and Abigail Browde and Michael Silverstone of 600 Highwaymen – this affecting new work is a tribute to theater – an art form that vanishes- and the people who are devoted to it.

Existentialism

Premieres February 23, 2024 – March 10, 2024 at La MaMa
Created and directed by Anne Bogart.

TICKETS

Existentialismis an urgent, funny, and unsettling  work created and  directed by the luminary theater artist, Anne Bogart  in collaboration with Ellen Maddow and Paul Zimet. It  takes place in two small houses side by side in a vast space. A woman lives in one. A man in the other – a couple, both close and apart. In the course of their daily routines they grapple with the big question: how to create a meaningful life in a world where the only certainty is the inexorable passage of time.

 There may be more beautiful times, but this one is ours

For this new work, Talking Band has commissioned the acclaimed costume designer, Olivera Gajic to be the lead artist. Drawing inspiration from Gajic’s costume designs, Maddow and Zimet wrote Shimmer and Herringbone (set in a clothing store by that name). The show, with music composed by Maddow for a live string trio, is a farce of chance encounters in which people tired of their old selves hope to find the clothes that will fit their new ones.


Shimmer and Herringbone is presented by Talking Band in Association with Mabou Mines
