185 Seconds – New episodes coming to the Brooklyn Lyceum November 2, 9, 16, 2012! For more information and for tickets, click here: http://welcometo185seconds.tumblr.com/

Each week from a basement studio, a television-obsessed family presents a brand new episode of their off-kilter domestic broadcast: 185 Seconds. Their late-night performance offers captive audiences a variety of local talent acts; from an electric harpist to naughty burlesque. Inspired by the 1970s television show Stairway to Stardom and David Lynch’s series The Rabbits, this live episodic performance brings viewers deep into the fading world of public access.

The house band, Pineapple Cruz, provides accompaniment to the show as Vicky, a brassy hostess, is determined to find a replacement for her brother, love, and former co-host Carl. To keep the family’s show from falling apart, Vicky orchestrates an odd concoction of crafting demos, spiritual healings, dating games, and outside guest performers. Bunny, a wannabe Vanna White and Candy, a sexually repressed live-video op round out the cast. Combining cutting-edge video programming techniques with a dusty lo-fi aesthetic, this socially perverted family, together with their band, controls the tech from onstage as they bring a frightening hospitality to their self-produced broadcast.


Liza Wade Green, Emily Rea, and Ellery Royston are a Brooklyn-based collaborative team with backgrounds in writing, music, computing, physical theater and dance. Past projects include a site-specific play in a house, durational experimental music events, and a performance installation at a wastewater treatment plant. With 185 Seconds, the team seeks to resurrect and translate the art of public-access television into live performance, playing in a world in which a public broadcast is live, urgent and unforgivably intimate.

Cast: Lilah Freedland, Liza Wade Green, Radek Konopka, Emily Rea, and Ellery Royston

Special guest acts include: Kristen Arnesen, Briggan Krauss, Gwen Rooker, Mary McCool, Aaron Phillips, Jeff Wood, Brute Force & Daughter of Force, Maggie Robinson, and many, many more.
