It's Time for Love to Suck Again.

Friends, Romans, countrymen, lend me your ears (and your time and also $10 that I shan't return). 

On Friday, February 10th at 8 o'clock in the evening, touche pas will present the 2nd annual performance of:

super sad love scenes (or, love makes us all losers)

 STOP. Drama time.

Misuzu Hara

super sad love songs (or, love makes us all losers)

On Saturday, February 13th, at 8 pm, touche pas will premiere the one-night-only performance of super sad love songs (or, love makes us all losers) at the Alchemical Theatre Laboratory in NYC. 

Six performers offer an evening of dance, music and song, by turns self-indulgent, dramatic, droll, sweeping and (in Rachel's case, at least) questionably narcissistic. 

Featuring these truly multi-talented performers:

Dia Dearstyne

Nora Fox

Isaac Owens

Kristen Rizzuto

Rachel Rizzuto

Jesse Scheinin

Makeup, hair and costumes by Marc Witmer. Lighting design by Lisa Hufnagel. This excellent video was filmed and edited by Jared Lee Outten.

It is a free performance. The cast of 12 dancers and two musicians offer a humorous and entirely fictional exploration of feudal system serfs and their private lives.
