Elephant Run District New York, NY

Elephant Run District is a collective devoted to challenging expectations, inspiring dialogue in our community and creating long-lasting memories. Elephant Run seeks to entertain its audience at the same time it addresses social justice issues. The District is a place where traditions collide and new possibilities are explored in the hunt to create stories that are ultimately human.

Like any community, The District is in a constant state of evolution, becoming more diverse and exciting as collaborators move in, set up shop and offer their creative wares to the world. Established in 2010, we have produced 2 full-length plays and various smaller projects. Our first production, Green, was hailed “a highlight of the theatrical season” by Martin Denton.

But what more will it take for this verbose Canadian mime to become a Real New Yorker? “When life sucks as bad as your mental health, go to Rabbit Island.”

Two Lovely Black Eyes

Chris Harcum (American Badass, Rabbit Island, and Some Kind of Pink Breakfast) returns to the Frigid Festival with a solo performance mash-up of stand-up comedy and storytelling. "Surprisingly poignant"--The New York Times. "Really dazzling talent"--NYTheatre.
