Synopsis: Money Lab is an economic vaudeville, a multi-disciplinary experiment to discover whether economic ideas can be represented through performance. It uses a mixture of theater, dance, video, music, clowning and games in order to explore everything from the darker predictions of Malthus, to the 2008 stock market collaps, to the intersections of economics and art. Developed with the help of a crew of artists and economists, this project culminated with a four day performance workshop at The Brick in Brooklyn. A full production with new pieces premiered at HERE Arts Center.

"Dead Cat Bounce" is a multi-media dance piece that examines the jargon of the 2008 financial crisis as popularized by the media.
