Animals Performance Group’s latest endeavor commissioned by LES staple Dixon Place follows six employees of an “unnamed bank” in the midst of the apocalypse. As the corporate crumbles, these employees will navigate the rubble through songs, dances, stories, and everyone’s favorite: conflict resolution seminars.

Chase: What Matters Most? is created by Animals Performance Group (Mike Mikos, Michael de Angelis, Nikki Calonge), with lighting design by Michael McGee, set design by Blake Palmer, costume design by Bobby Andres, model designs by Janet Kim, props by Ben Gullard, songs by Eva Peskin, and stage management by Eh-den Perlove. Featuring Nikki Calonge, Akira Fukui, Zoë Geltman, Brighid Greene, Eva Peskin, and Nikaury Rodriguez.
