Chris, Reg, & now Candace have been running Falconworks for a long time in Red Hook, doing great youth programs like Off the Hook (where young playwrights see their work realized by wonderful professional actors) and the Police-Teen Theater Project.
In recent months, they’ve been ramping up sessions of their adult Boal workshops, “The Red Hook Theater Project” (with, we’re happy to say, a sometimes-assist from the DTE studio). I don’t know that they’ve ever done a benefit before, so now’s your chance to support the great work they do in the neighborhood.

Tonight only is Falconworks’ “Make Your Own Benefit.” Look on the Falconworks website for info on the fun they’ve got planned, or check out the writeup on playbill.com for details.
Falconworks Artists Group, our friends from around the corner in the Houses, has a show coming up this Monday, October 12th at PS 15 in Red Hook. The performance will mark the culmination of a three-day series of intensive workshops in the theatrical techniques of director/writer/giant influence on DTE, Augosto Boal.
“The Red Hook Theatre Project” will put together over twenty residents of Red Hook, ages 18 and up, as they create theatre about real life situations and issues, and let the audience participate through the structure of “forum theatre.”
Check out the show- 7pm, 71 Sullivan Street, for some awesome theatre- and when you’re there admire the nifty white folding chairs straight out of DTE’s space- we braved the unbelievably windy wind to get them to you!
