Without WordsMacadames [France]
Macadames University of New Mexico Experimental Theater January 30th, 31st, 8pm A man. A woman. God or Life. Two large bags. Words that won’t come out. A white square. Two tooth-brushes. A bass clarinet. Two bunches of carrots. Words that won’t come out. A candle. Two handkerchiefs. A lipstick. A map of France. A loop station. A birthday. Clothes. A kiss. A dance. A meal. A gift. Words that won’t come out. An encounter. A trip. A quarrel. A separation. A dreary reunion. Death. Loosely based on Act Without Words II from Beckett, Without Words tells the story of a couple lulled by day to day existence and cowardice, who will live a lifetime without ever actually meeting. Through systematic acts and the fulfillment of a routine in a repetitive pattern, the beginning often finds itself at the end, even when life seems out of surprises. Without Words is the first creation of the company written specifically for theaters. Bouncing off the dreamlike quality of the location, it explores the space as a dream, a tragic absurdity and a field of paradoxes where laughter and tears collide, rattle and merge into "the unbearable lightness of being". Using elements of mime, clowning, acrobatics, object manipulation, theatre, music and dance, Macadâmes makes plays in which poetry rises from the mixing of genres. Macadâmes refers to their experience with the musicality of movement, the embodiment of sound, the chill of tragedy and the sentiment of love. Without Words is co-produced by Tricklock Company and Make Theatre of Minneapolis, MN.

Die Roten Punkte University of New Mexico Experimental Theater January 17th, 18th, 8pm **** “White Stripes mated with Laurel and Hardy in the Black Forest." - Time Out, London Fresh from supporting Amanda Palmer at The Roxy in LA, the Prince and Princess of the Berlin Underground Indie rock and Europop scene are coming to REVOLUTIONS for the very first time! If you’re a fan of Spinal Tap and Flight of the Conchords, say “Hallo!” to your new favorite band. Astrid and Otto are Die Roten Punkte (The Red Dots). Orphaned as kids when Astrid was 12 and Otto was 9, the brother and sister duo found shelter in a Berlin squat and never rockin’ well looked back. WINNER Melbourne Green Room Awards for Cabaret 2008 WINNER Best Comedy Montreal & Victoria Fringe 2010 Green Room Awards nominees, Best Original Songs/Best Ensemble 2010 TOAST CABARET AWARD (Total Theatre-Time Out London), Edinburgh 2013 A Die Roten Punkte gig is a wild, rock ‘n’ roll cabaret ride, full of hilarious, truly catchy, and award winning pop songs, constantly interrupted by the squabbling of the dysfunctional siblings. Described as “a lipstick-smeared, tantrum-loving, sonic collision between the B52s, Kraftwerk and early Ramones,” Die Roten Punkte are truly one of a kind. Astrid’s avant-garde style and legendary antics inspire both reverence and fear, while Otto’s dynamic stage presence brings to mind a whirling dervish on meth. Die Roten Punkte are one of the most irreverent and funny acts you are ever likely to see. “The performances are exuberant and flawless…fist pumping fun of the highest order.” - Eye Weekly, Toronto
