The world premiere of Taffety Punk’s opens this Thursday, January 28th at the Mead Theater Lab at Flashpoint (916 G Street NW). A new work composed from actual text on suicide usenet groups, this unique departure from conventional theatre combines choreography by our very own Paulina Guerrero with new music by Dischord recording artists Beauty Pill, all woven into an elaborate punk dance theatre concert. Directed by founding artistic director Marcus Kyd, features company member Kimberly Gilbert with guest artists Elizabeth Abt, Tonya Beckman Ross, Paul Edward Hope, Liz Maestri, and Faction of Fools‘ very own Matthew R. Wilson.

Runs January 28th through February 13th, Wednesday through Sundays at 8pm, with Saturday and Sunday matinées at 3pm. $10 at the door. Cash only. No credit cards or or checks, please. Reservations can be made by writing to, or calling (202) 261-6612.
