Heart of the Beast ~ Are You Thirsty?


Are You Thirsty is a dynamic exploration of the myriad questions contained in a cup of water – one of our most precious and necessary shared resources. Utilizing puppets and masks, this performance demonstrates how much of the earth’s water is available for drinking, compares tap and bottled water, and helps us understand ourselves as part of the water cycle – bringing water issues vibrantly to life.

Performed by Esther Ouray and Laurie Witzkowski, of In the Heart of the Beast Puppet and Mask Theatre.

capersAnu Nadav

“…[a] solo tour-de-force… a documentarian’s eye with an uncanny gift for true-to-life characterizations as she effortlessly switches from God-fearing grandmother to crusty bureaucrat to feisty teenage girl (think Sarah Jones or Anna Deavere Smith meets Broadway-era Lily Tomlin).”

A stirring blend of theater, documentary and activism, ‘Capers is a one-woman show based on the stories of families at DC’s Arthur Capper/Carrollsburg public housing projects – nicknamed ‘Capers – who protested the government-funded demolition of their neighborhood. Featured in major news outlets including the Washington Post, WAMU-FM, and the Washington City Paper, as well as the documentary Chocolate City, ‘Capers toured nationally to over 5,500 people.  It supported the grassroots organizing of public housing residents fighting to return to their community and was included as required course curriculum for the 11th grade at DC’s Bell Multicultural High School, as well as course reading at American University, University of Maryland at College Park and University of Michigan at Ann Arbor.  Written and performed by Anu Yadav. Directed and developed by Patrick Crowley.
