Floating Brothel Comes to Brooklyn's Galapagos

Galapagos Art Space in DUMBO presents The Floating Brothel on a platform on its indoor lake on Monday, October 27 (note -- not the 28th, as was previously posted) at 8 p.m.

In this production, five actors tell the story of convict women pulled out of their world-- a 1789 brothel from London's underbelly-- and thrust into the helm of a ship sailing to a unknown continent where they will begin their lives anew.

This epic journey is performed entirely within the confines of a 3'x6' platform that the actors never step off of. With the help of a few everyday objects, they transform the playing space from the bustle and noise of London, to the dank bilge of a ship and the harrowing voyage across the sea to a new world.

And all for $5. Tickets here.
