SHOW TEACHERS THE LOVE

The Academy for Teachers will hold its annual "Show Teachers the Love!" celebration. This year's celebrity-filled program will feature performances by Matthew Broderick, Vanessa Williams, Joy Behar, Ron Blake, Sean Cross, Phil Galdston, Tayolor Mali, & Basil Twist. It will also be The Academy's first benefit after five years of honoring and supporting exceptional NYC teachers. A unique feature of this event is that half our audience will be teachers, who will come for free to feel the love. The other half will be donors, who come to show it.

MAY/JUNE

DarkCircusfront2LR

Join us for this international treat, one-week only in the Mainstage at HERE. A nose-diving trapezist, an animal trainer gobbled up by his lion, and a human cannonball that never returns from outer space: this is one tragic circus. Despite the catastrophes, French puppet company STEREOPTIK elevates the spectacle with a visual feast of imagination. With a brand of visual theatre magic that features live music, exquisite ink drawings, shadow puppetry, sand animation, and revelatory object theatre, their ironic humor meets childlike wonder, and an extraordinary Dark Circus is born.
