Primer for a Failed Superpower

Fresh takes on iconic protest songs from past and present.
The TEAM, teenagers, and Baby Boomers.
Two nights only.
All ages.

Award-winning, Brooklyn-based ensemble the TEAM presents PRIMER FOR A FAILED SUPERPOWER, a concert featuring a band of teenagers, the TEAM, and Baby Boomers playing new and

unexpected arrangements of iconic protest songs. Songs that have celebrated and questioned what it means to be an American from the past to the present. Songs that exercise the muscles in our hearts and lungs for the challenges ahead.

The three-generation band includes performers and musicians from across New York City and as far away as Texas--some veteran performers, and some taking the stage for the first time. The concert will also feature video interviews with activists from across the country--from an indigenous youth water protector at Standing Rock, to one of the co-chairs of the Women’s March on Washington, to a coal-country cultural worker in Virginia.

The concert is open to ALL AGES. Advance tickets are $10. Audience members are encouraged to pay what they are able - no one will be turned away for lack of funds.
