Theatergoers of New York, unite! You have nothing to lose but your time. NYU Skirball presents a two-week festival to commemorate the bicentennial of beard-stroking communist forefather Karl Marx. Bulgarian provocateur Ivo Dimchev christens the festival with P Project (Oct 17), in which audience members are bribed to participate in sometimes outlandish activities. Choreographer Luciana Achugar encourages her dancers to dig into their primal selves in Brujx (Oct 19, 20). The festival also offers a DJ Dance Party (Oct 19), a philosophical lecture (Oct 22) and a variety show (Oct 26) before wrapping up wih Ethan Philbrick's Choral Marx, a sung adaptation of The Communist Manifesto. All events are free, but audiences are encouraged to make donations according to their means.
