Experience LONE WOLF: An Immersive Theater Experience at Brooklyn Art Haus from 6/6-6/16

Brooklyn Art Haus (24 Marcy Ave) and SMPL MCHN present the NYC premiere of LONE WOLF, an immersive theater piece supported by a stellar ensemble cast that explores the collective response to lone wolf incidents that have radically changed our cultural fabric. The story unfolds through movement and music in a minimalist, ultramodern environment, which takes the audience on a journey through cultural tipping points in modern society. The exploration of capitalism, violence, cultural shifts and race will command the audience to see themselves within a world in which our collective impulses occasionally shift when blindsided by a flashpoint. Created by Isaac Bush (USA) and Anne Simon (Luxembourg), LONE WOLF focuses on how society responds to and frequently hijacks these cultural shifts to better themselves. This 75-minute tour-de-force production will be presented during eight performances over two weekends with evening and matinee shows. Following its NYC premiere at Brooklyn Art Haus, LONE WOLF will make its European premiere at the Grand Theater of Luxembourg and then tour Europe through the end of 2024. Tickets are $30 and a portion of the proceeds will support Brooklyn For Peace and Human Rights Campaign, among other foundations.
