KALEIDOSCOPING: Madame Lynch

from 12.00

A DEEP SPACE PERFORMANCE RESIDENCY

MADAME LYNCH is a new spectacle with music that takes as its jumping-off point the story of Eliza Lynch, an Irish prostitute who, through fate and machination, became de facto Empress of Paraguay in the mid 19th century. Lynch was later reviled for her supposed part in fomenting the war in which 90 percent of Paraguay’s male population was killed—but this show is concerned primarily with Lynch’s other legacy: her doomed project of bringing European high culture to the inhabitants of a country that neither understood nor desired what she had to offer.

The Drunkard’s Wife is a theater troupe from Brooklyn. Their original works incorporate raucous, no-wave inflected music and a generous, maximalist design sense. Helmed by Normandy Sherwood (of The National Theater of the United States of America) and Craig Flanagin (of God is My Co-Pilot and ½ Japanese), their plays and spectacles have been seen at Rubulad (Tiny Hornets), Brick Theater (Permanent Caterpillar), The New Ohio Theatre (Feather Gatherers), as well as block parties and bars and parades all over New York City. Their 2013 album, I Saw the Evil One, is available here. The Drunkard’s Wife is currently a 2018-2019 company-in-residence at the Archive Residency, a project of the New Ohio Theatre and IRT Theatre.
