THE GOLDEN DRUM YEAR is one engagement in The Second Decade Project, which comprises four parts spanning different artistic disciplines. The source material for all these works is a series of 365 poems written daily over the course of one year by poet and playwright Beto O’Byrne. The project is made up of four Engagements; a multimedia performance work, an interactive visual installation, a series of limited-edition publications and a mobile device app.
THE GOLDEN DRUM YEAR has been collaboratively created over the course of almost two years by the following group of extraordinary humans:
Beto O’Byrne, Meropi Peponides, Simón Hanukai, David Bengali, Jonathan Camuzeaux, Adam Boyd Gibbs, Sonia Villani, Eric Aviles, Jonathan Raviv, Matt Dellapina, Deadria Harrington, Yadira de la Riva, W. Tré Davis, Cynthia Bastidas, Tia James, Andrew Belcher, Harry Poster

You're invited to the most fun time you could possibly (probably) have on Friday, December 6th.
Join the Animals Perfomance Group at Cloud City in Williamsburg for a night of performances and two kinds of booths: photo and kissing. Yeah. That's right.
Performers at the benefit will include: Max Bernstein, William Burke, Ben Gansky, Zoe Geltman, Daliya Karnofsky, and Wil Petre. And more.
Animals is raising funds to support our upcoming premiere of The Baroness is the Future. We've been developing this piece for almost a full year now, showing excerpts at Catch, Prelude Festival, and Cloud City, and we're very proud to be previewing the show at Under the Radar's Incoming Series. All this leads up to the premiere of The Baroness, presented by Dixon Place, January 23-25th.
Whoah a lot of awesome coming at you fast.
New Skin for the Old Ceremony returns to Cloud City on Tuesday 3 December for a night of disaster-tempting and face-melting short performances :::
