New Works presents the work of emerging choreographers and facilitates dialogue through feedback sessions and Q&A. New Works is curated by Alexandra Albrecht and Jill Hockett.

Handshake Uppercut by John Leo and Jay Dunn

A Victorian Clown Throwdown

Two slightly perverted but naively well-intentioned mutes drag each other through life with only each other's mischievous cruelty to keep them warm. With voyeuristic vaudeville bits and surrealist non sequitors, John Leo and Jay Dunn marry Beckett's existential bleakness, the Marquis de Sade's demented eroticism, and Keaton's comedic sincerity. Both epic and infinitesimal, these gentleman comrades will laugh you out of your seat while they steal it from under you.

$15 general admission, or $20 for double bill with Peg-Ass-Us

From maskarts.com:

"a brilliant piece of theater...Handshake Uppercut will help raise the quality bar of clown-theater."
Audience reviews:

"Brilliant physical comedy, but totally disturbing"

"...a daring poignant relationship journey"

"Wretched! Wonderful!"

"You made me creme fraiche in my panties"
