(beyond) Doomsday Scrolling

FEB 16-26

A fierce, feminist, epic cabaret about women, war, displacement and resistance, (beyond) Doomsday Scrolling takes us into an imagined theatre sheltering women fleeing from wars across time and across the globe. It connects the 2022 invasion of Ukraine with the larger landscape of systemic inequity and aggression around the world – and amplifies the voices of women as social actors in war time.

Featuring a live ensemble and songs ranging freely over cultures, eras, and genres, this multi-lingual show is performed by 12 women – and one man – from 10 countries and multiple generations –  engaging experiences of war and displacement through drama, music, satire, living newspaper, personal testimony, and fragments from the rich tradition of women’s war writing.

Presenting freshly devised material in each iteration, this performance aims to bear witness, to raise humanitarian aid, and to stand in international solidarity with refugees, and against the divisions being sown between peoples.

Special Events: 

FEB 24 — The performance on 2/24 will honor a year of Ukraine’s resistance against Russia’s most recent military aggression. Following the performance, stay for a conversation with Ukrainian actress Lilian LeVos and an interview with her colleagues at proEnglish Theatre in Kyiv, whose members have been both making important theatre and serving their community throughout the war. Their work has greatly inspired our team. AnomalousCo will donate all of our box-office proceeds from tonight’s tickets to support people affected by the war.

FEB 25 — Lorena Kourousias, Executive Director of Mixteca, and Angelo Cabrera will join us after the performance for a brief conversation about what’s going on with the Mexican and Latin American immigrant community in Brooklyn — and offer avenues for direct action we each might take to support our neighbors who have sought a better life here. Established more than 20 years ago, Mixteca is working hard to serve — among others — asylum seekers who were bussed up to NYC by border-state governors.

Throughout the run, AnomalousCo will receive material donations for the efforts of South Brooklyn Mutual Aid (SBMA) and their community partners. Follow the links below to see what items they’re requesting — and to see other ways to support — like cooking — and bring any donations when you come to the theatre. [FYI: SBMA folks are all volunteers; read here and follow them on social media to learn more. If you’re not familiar with mutual aid and how it works, read on here.]
