bilialien is an evening of short new works by Annie Wilson, creator of the Fringe hit Lovertits (2014). Pieces include keening in the dark. In Celtic tradition, keening is done over a dead body, but that was in a different time. Before the internet. In a world after the internet, celestial creatures trace the periphery of the room, their time onstage, their own vision. And maybe a secret duet will emerge?
bilialien is followed by Yesterday’s Garbage on Friday and Sunday nights. Yesterday’s Garbage is the worst open mic night we could conjure. Produced and hosted in collaboration with Anita Holland, Yesterday’s Garbage is open to anyone who has ever had a bad creative idea.

All of this is performed in repertory with Nichole Canuso Dance Company’s show Sneakers at Theatre Exile in South Philly.
