A Shot in the Dark: Program A

  • The Tank 312 West 36th Street New York, NY, 10018 United States (map)



We are turning off the lights! In this Festival and environmental initiative, The Tank is celebrating innovative performance that utilizes self-sufficient and alternative energy sources. Artists are using everything from glow-in-the-dark mouth guards to flashlights and more to shed some light on their work. Don't worry - we keep the AC on. SHOT IN THE DARK is Dark Fest's variety show of work all done with no lights from our grid.

The Delay
Written and Directed by Emma Gometz

The Delay is a play about two subway trains stuck on the tracks, wondering what's stopped them. It's also about anxiety, fear, how we try to control our lives, and how much of that control is just in our heads.
