    Virtual Vortex: Risk

    This is a livestreamed reading of Robi Polgar’s new play Risk (or, What Nature Doesn’t Do to Us), darkly comic vengeance drama, in which an upwardly mobile mayor, his fallen lobbyist brother, their endtimes-proclaiming father, and a mysterious woman who has charmed them all navigate the global tragedy that is climate change while coming to terms with the unfolding discoveries of how their romantic histories intertwine. Performed by Michelle Polgar, Ev Lunning Jr, Ben Wolfe, and Jeff Mills.

    The Social Distancing Festival

    This is an online community, as playwright and unstoppable force of creative nature Nick Green informs us, and it's been activated to "celebrate and showcase the work of the many artists around the world who have been affected by the need for social distancing that has come about due to the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19)." It's not Austin-based, this virtual and ongoing festival of all kinds of performance arts, but damned if there aren't a few talented Austinites among the eclectic mix.
