the state department presents

Want to travel the world? Speak many languages? Assist in complex hostage negotiations and intervene in territorial disputes? 

 

You need specialist performance assistance from the people with the expertise. 

 

For three nights only at 95 Empire, in their truly international collaboration, Lindsay Goss and Nicholas Ridout will show you the drill. 

 

The State Department Presents is an all-new performance experiment in international relations, office politics and the pleasures of disco.

Lindsay goes to the "office," which consists of a computer and a framed photograph of John Kerry. She checks with Nick that her image is clear, then plays Kool and the Gang and dances.
