We Intend to Rock The Revolution!
JUNK takes place in a near-future urban wasteland run by Junk Incorporated. Anna, a Junk employee, dreams of starting a revolution with her all-girl rock band, the MetroJets. Her ambitions are thwarted when she finds herself caught in a dangerous triangle between her boss, Ernie, who owns the last nightclub in the city, and the office janitor, Max, who wants to help her escape the drudges of corporate life.

The Circus is Coming…
THE DISAPPEARING MAN is a new folk opera that takes place backstage at a small-time circus in 1936. When the headliner is offered another job, each of the performers in the motley troupe must decide whether to adapt to change or fight to keep the family together.

Join Shakina as she recounts in song and story the exploits and misadventures that led to her gender transition. A tale of surviving the 90s and creating a new life in a new millennium, VICE magazine says of Shakina, “nothing will stop her in becoming who she is.” As seen in the Daily News, Gothamist, Logo’s New Now Next blog, and her in-depth interview with Huffington Post Live, Shakina’s public approach to her gender confirmation is living performance art with a dark, funny, and powerful edge.
