For only six dates from November 8 through 17, Walking the Dog Theater presents MONEY, an event in collaboration with NIKITA Productions. Conceived and hosted by David Anderson, Benedicta Bertau, and Melania Levitsky, MONEY incorporates stories, questions, poetry, social action, improv — and cash.
Last year, WTD took up a theme which asked participants to face their relationship to death, using different creative means to open up its sometimes-difficult or fearful aspects.
The warm and enthusiastic response and the popularity of the production affirmed this more intimate approach and a way of sharing a theme with an audience. It seems that WTD has “created a new theatrical form” (at least according to one reviewer)!
After The Death Show, a few people approached WTD and said: “the only thing I fear more than death is money, or not having enough” or “I have more anxiety around money than I do around death.” This feedback, from different sources, inspired the group to enter another potentially-uncomfortable area and to look at how they might explore, and maybe even illuminate, our relationship to money.
Meet your money guru, maybe win the raffle, and prepare to part with your prejudices, your preconceptions, and your pennies!
