Summer Street Dinner Theater (In Exile) is a delicious meal, a programme of short performance works and a uniquely lovely social experience. Attendees can expect a gourmet meal prepared by Executive Chef Chris Mulligan and a diverse array of short works carefully curated by Erik Ruin, running the gamut from abstract dance to activist puppetry. Dining soundtrack provided by Analog Underground DJs.

This incarnation features the following works/performers-

Living Newspaper:  Sidewalk Ballet is part of a recent Toy Theater series, developed through our experience with Great Small Works' signature news-based Toy Theater work, "Terror As Usual."  This second episode contemplates the life of the city, featuring Jane Jacobs, Robert Moses, a burning bush, and the sidewalk. Created and performed by John Bell and Trudi Cohen of Great Small Works. They've both been puppeteers since the mid-1970's, with roots in Bread and Puppet Theater.  They are founders of the HONK! Festival of activist street bands in Somerville, MA, play in the Second Line Social Aid and Pleasure Society Brass Band, and together they received Puppet Showplace Theater's 2014 Paul Vincent Davis Award for puppetry excellence and mentorship.

BANQUET is a disgusting artifact; a display of gross decadence, and analog video art with live soundtrack.  Nell Gross, Julia Moses, and Katrina Clark are separately and in pairs the musical projects Bitters, Groke, and Charon Gross.

Plans for Shrinking Cities, Part 1 is a time and motion study of the architectonics of a once great urban metropolis, performed by  ensemble inedit- messengers from a chaotic planet, ensemble inedit fuses process and object in their performances of highly structured improvisations.  Led by Joe Burgio,  the ensemble includes multidisciplinary artists from bodydrama, plus new raw spirits,  distilled at the hindbrain of Somerville's innovation corridor.

Plus three songs from musical guest Gelsey Bell, including a shadowy collaboration with your humble curator Erik Ruin. Gelsey is a singer, songwriter, and scholar, who has released multiple albums and her work has been presented internationally. She is a core member of thingNY and Varispeed. She has also worked with numerous composers, choreographers, and performance creators including Robert Ashley, Matthew Barney and Jonathan Bepler, Kimberly Bartosik, Yasuko Yokoshi, Dave Malloy, Rachel Chavkin, John King, Chris Cochrane and Fast Forward, Kate Soper, and Rick Burkhardt, among others.
