FOURTH ANNUAL TEN MINUTE PLAY FESTIVAL: IOWA 08
From July 19-29th, 2007 New York Collective for the Arts dropped . . .

IOWA 08

"Produces the most pork. Predicts the presidential nominees."

At the Dimson Theater
108 E. 15th St, between Union Square East and Irving place.

Once every four years, Americans turn to Iowa-- our thirtieth most populous state and the birthplace of John Wayne-- for the earliest indication of who the nation's presidential candidates will be and NY Collective was there. Our artists explored the personality and politics of the "true" Iowan, imagining a world where caucuses, hootenannies, corn husking, and political parties are a part of daily life.

ABOUT THE PIECES
Setting: In a Iowan school gymnasium/polling station.
Time: Caucus time (needn't be present day)

WHY IOWA?
Our directors explain. . .
1. Iowa is first to vote and people seem to take participating in the process very seriously.
2. The Iowa caucus matters. Over the years its caucuses have legitimized campaigns and candidates including Jimmy Carter (1976, seen as winner despite placing 2nd behind "Uncommitted") and George W. Bush (2000, records highest percentage ever in contested GOP caucus).
3. It is as All-American a state as you'll find. Its chief exports are tractors and pigs and is the birth place of John Wayne, "Buffalo Bill" Cody, and Hebert Hoover, among others who seem to embody the very best and worst of what it means to be American.
