by The Mighty Mighty Pressure Cooker
Performances April 23rd at 7pm and 9pm.
Co-Presented by Fusebox Festival and Salvage Vanguard Theater. In a space devoid of decoration and sets, two performers are concentrated on the thin line between movement and inability to move; between breathing and not breathing; between silence and sound; between darkness and light. Presence and being become palpable, making encounters possible on that thin line.

May 2 -17
In Kurochkin’s satire, a corrupt and venal mayor presides over Austin’s comically
broken city council. When a Ukrainian arrives, invoking a looming catastrophe, will locals heed his warning? A new play for Austin commissioned by Breaking String Theater, Maksym Kurochkin’s Dulcey and Roxy at City Hall presents a timely encounter with Slavic culture, the language of revolution, and the corrupting influence of power.
