Tickets available here

Concrete Folk Variations is an epic urban folk tale, a serial puppet drama that will be presented on a regular basis here at the Manual Archives.

Then on

Sunday October 7, 8PM the final performance of

Leonard Cohen Opens the Sky

Folksinger Emily Lacy leads an interpretation of the works of Leonard
Cohen through performance, song, and image. Ms. Lacy will explore the
character of Cohen through a site-specific musical experiment within
the magically tiny, chapel-like theater of the Manual Archives. This
strand of theater represents the first of such work for the artist,
and comes after the recent completion of her 4th homemade album
"newsworthy new york tapes".

Seating is limited

Tickets are available here.
