You can’t come to us right now. So we come to you — live, in Brooklyn Bridge Park, at home, and on your screens!
The Fall 2020 Season takes note of St. Ann’s long history of enlightened, politically engaged artists, beginning at the St. Ann’s Church in the 1980’s – featuring GET BACK! live roof concerts – Beatles style; guerrilla protest projections; visual art in our archways on the facade of St. Ann’s Warehouse.
We kick off virtual programming with Romantics Anonymous, Directed by Emma Rice and broadcast live from the Bristol Old Vic. Streaming free, we present impassioned productions from St. Ann’s storied-past speaking to current life. Our Legacy Series features The Donmar’s all-female Shakespeare Trilogy on-screen (Julius Caesar, Henry IV, The Tempest) and two seminal rock concert films,Lou Reed / John Cale Songs for Drella: A Fiction (1990), and Lou Reed’s Berlin Live at St. Ann’s Warehouse (2007). With their tough exteriors and underlying vulnerabilities exposed — this fall defines the daring and transgressive tone of what St. Ann’s Warehouse became, here at the intersection where theater meets rock and roll.
We feel the urgency of social issues more than ever and call for empathy and community action. In this spirit, we launch our 2020 Fall Season.
