Nut Island Creative Colony
The Nut Island Creative Colony takes over a house on Colonel’s Row and fills it with theater, installation art, classes, a documentary video project and a multi-writer playwriting residency. Every project included in the creative colony will be free and open to the public—either entirely, or in part. Visitors will discover that the work being shown and made there investigates and engages with Governors Island in dynamic, revealing ways: with the Island’s history; with the Island’s present-day ecology and climate; and with the Island as it lives in our minds.
Come participate in immersive theater piece Nine Cases, log your weather observations in The Observatory, take a workshop on solar power or spend the day writing alongside one of their playwrights-in-residence.
Frank Paiva is Zero Feet Away, June 22 (Fri), 7:30PM
This show puts contemporary gay courtship under the microscope. Using his own romantic travails as inspiration, Frank examines the past, present, and future of Grindr and apps like it: How they fit into a history of covert communication between gay men, how to create the perfect profile, and how to move forward when you’re drowning in options but still find yourself totally alone. This sarcastic solo show will charm audiences gay and straight alike. Appropriate for audiences ages 13+.
