Grab your lawn chairs and join the Cayuga Museum of History and Art & Case Research Lab, Karen Faris and Building Company Theater for Surface Tension, a completely outdoor theater experience on the Cayuga Museum grounds! Actors will perform a live reading of this brand new play, and audience members are invited afterwards to join the cast and playwright for a talkback about the production.

Donations are greatly appreciated. Masks must be worn and social distancing will be enforced according to New York State guidelines.

Join us for a fun weekend, and celebrate the return of live theater!

DESCRIPTION
“Who doesn’t love the girl on the beach, except, maybe, the girl on the beach? Set halfway around the world from wherever you are, this modern, innovative play uses fable and multi-media. It tells the archetypal story of a child who wants to leave home but encounters resistance from the adults in her life. They want her to be comfortable and secure just like they are…except they need Business Woman’s rose-colored glasses to believe that’s true.

Rocked by rising sea levels and sinkholes, power struggles between constantly changing political forces, garbage strikes, and economic uncertainty, they face the choice of destroying their world or saving it for the next generation. Surface Tension is a humorous and satirical romp through the forces of western femininity, capitalism, and climate change.”

Any questions about this performance can be directed to Kat Dinneen at [email protected]

Round two of the Tavern tonight! 8-11 PM.

Answer this riddle and get $1 off your first drink:

"Tales of mine give evidence toward
the fact the pen is mightier than the sword.

When broken, I fail in purpose defined.
When whole, I break the solitary mind.

In practicing silence, I found fame.
A painful rest once defined my name.

Now speak of my identity.
Who am I? Relinquish my anonymity."

Libations abound for the Carriage House Tavern! 8-11 PM tonight!

Monday, October 21! Join us for the second session of our new fall documentary series!

"Freedom Riders is the powerful harrowing and ultimately inspirational story of six months in 1961 that changed America forever. From May until November 1961, more than 400 black and white Americans risked their lives—and many endured savage beatings and imprisonment—for simply traveling together on buses and trains as they journeyed through the Deep South. Deliberately violating Jim Crow laws in order to test and challenge a segregated interstate travel system, the Freedom Riders met with bitter racism and mob violence along the way, sorely testing their belief in nonviolent activism."

Ron VanNostrand, an experienced Auburn community organizer, will moderate the discussion: inviting audiences to consider the impact of civil disobedience in the face of unjust systems, and its impact across the United States’ history.

Join the Cayuga Museum for this unique chance to engage with the fundamental human right to resist, protest, and demonstrate.

In One Week! Join us in the Carriage House Theater for this new program!

"Ai Weiwei is China's most famous international artist, and its most outspoken domestic critic. Against a backdrop of strict censorship and an unresponsive legal system, Ai expresses himself and organizes people through art and social media. In response, Chinese authorities have shut down his blog, beat him up, bulldozed his newly built studio, and held him in secret detention."

Dr. Phillip Guingona, Assistant Professor of History at Wells College, will moderate: inviting audiences to consider the context of the film in reference to other prominent public protests in China, including the recent movement in Hong Kong.

Join the Cayuga Museum for this unique chance to engage with the fundamental human right to resist, protest, and demonstrate.

02/05/2019

Robin Rhinestone was born a burlesque dancer. At a young age she began putting on skits and productions for her family, and had an insatiable urge to dance! She enrolled in ballet lessons, but soon realized she would never resemble her petite and willowy classmates. Fortunately, she also happened to be an exhibitionist, and after watching a burlesque parody of "The Nutcracker," she knew that she had always been meant to be a showgirl. After Stage Kittening for the Whiskey Tango Sideshow for just over 2 years, she graduated to a full fledged performer, and has been gracing the stage with her comedic and sassy skits ever since! You can see Robin Rhinestone and the rest of her troupe at the Carriage House Theater February 9th! The doors open at 7 and the show starts at 7:30. Tickets are $25 and can be purchased with the link below!

02/04/2019

Sarah the Siren has been dancing and performing since her first days on dry land. She was a teacher of sultry hip sways and come-hither hair tossing at Brass Vixens in Toronto Canada, but they kicked her out of Canada for being too mean. When she washed up on a Cayuga Lake it was time to trade in her brass pole for a microphone. This Siren can usually be found learning to walk on her new legs in dangerously high heels and glittering seashell bras – sometimes with a wreckage of broken-hearted sailors smashed ‘on the rocks’ in her glass of whiskey. You can see Emcee Sarah the Siren and the rest of her troupe at the Carriage House Theater February 9th! The doors open at 7 and the show starts at 7:30. Tickets are $25 and can be purchased with the link below! Tickets are $25 and can be purchased with the link below!!

01/25/2019

Impromptu and unpredictable on local dance floors, getting Erin to plan and commit to choreographing a reproducible act would seem unlikely. However, the love, support and sheer FUN of all the WTS women is all the inspiration she needed. Erin took all sorts of dance lessons throughout her childhood but tap dancing was always her true love. She often fantasized about becoming a Radio City Hall Rockette when she was a big girl, but she quickly outgrew the maximum height requirement. Luckily WTS think she is just the right size— Amazonian!— and after decades of denying her true vocation she is living her girlish dream! You can see Erin The Axe and the rest of her troupe at the Carriage House Theater February 9th! The doors open at 7 and the show starts at 7:30. Tickets are $25 and can be purchased with the link below!
