Here is a Trailer & an Individual Promo for WORK WITH ME HERE @ Here Arts Center made by the amazing Hunter Canning

WORK WITH ME HERE is a theatrical event comprised of works IN or ABOUT process. It is part performance, part installation and it takes the form of a series of works by 15 of New York’s hottest up and coming playwrights, housed in a non-traditional theatre space, an eclectic room rich with allusion, character and anachronism.
