The Shalimar
Trash Warfare

Winner! The Stage Award for Best Ensemble at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival

“The most exciting young American company I have seen up here so far this century.”

– The Financial Times

“Beauty and grotesqueness in one, this is a must see.”
-The List

The Shalimar’s smash hit Trash Warfare returns to New York for eight performances at PS122. Using found text, live music, frenetic dance, raw meat and eight wild performers writer/director Shoshona Currier delves deep into America’s celebrity obsession. A savage send-up of a country hell bent on escapism even when all around it things are falling apart. Flash photography is encouraged.

With text compiled from speeches of General George Patton, General Douglas MacArthur,
Winston Churchill, interviews with Lizzie Grubman, Mary Kay Letourneau, Angelina Jolie, Britney Spears, and Gwyneth Paltrow, and works by Seneca, Georges Bataille, and Bret Easton Ellis, The Shalimar retells the timeless Phaedra myth. What happens at home when the men are away at war?
