Our 2018 season brings 5 weeks of original and authentic theatre curated on the theme of “RADICAL ACTS.” We’ll meet a group of 60’s radicals, and hear true tales of going AWOL in the jungle, examining one’s relationship with the planet and the courage to create. JOIN US!
Layering historical accounts of the radical left in the 1960’s and 70’s with socialist pageantry, and a gleefully obtuse re-production of The Living Theatre’s "Antigone," this show asks us to question our assumptions about what drives us to take action, how far is too far, and what role the imagination has in revolution. Also, it’s funny. Sometimes. Other times it’s really dark. But hey, that’s America!... Read More
WE ARE SOLD OUT! WE WILL BE TAKING AN IN-PERSON WAITING LIST AT THE DOOR STARTING AT 6PM FOR ANY CANCELLATIONS THAT MIGHT BECOME AVAILABLE. You’ve heard of poetry slams – competitive poetry events. This is one is for first person, true stories – told live and without notes, 5 minutes or less — and on the theme of “RADICAL ACTS.” A benefit to keep Ko going strong, this event typically sells out, so reservations are highly recommended, and if you've got a story to tell . . .

Why do some stories – some performances – spark your imagination, set fire to your soul, and leave you transformed, while others just sit there? Is it the content, or the telling? The framing, or the style? Can story be employed to bring laughter, or tears, or understanding, or lasting social change, or… Read More

TICKETING AT KO
Ko’s workshops and performances are offered at three different pricing levels: PATRON, STANDARD and DISCOUNT.
Though the program does not subsidize arts presenters, its goal is to broaden accessibility to cultural programming by advocating for lower ticket prices for people with EBT, WIC, and ConnectorCare cards.
Most arts organizations require that you show your card at the door, but but we do not. Ko recognizes that not all people needing a discounted price are enrolled in these programs, and that one’s financial situation can change in a heartbeat. Therefore, we invite those in need to avail themselves of our DISCOUNT level tickets. And if you are able to help us provide this access to those in need, please consider purchasing your ticket at the PATRON level.
See the full list of participating organizations offering EBT, WIC, and ConnectorCare discounts.
