New York City residents create 12,000 tons of trash a day. In a city with 27,000 people per square mile, someone’s going to have to take out the trash. Bottom Feeder is a series of non-narrative episodes performed by a diverse ensemble, asking how we can retain a collective identity as we empty public, private, and shared space of trash, and displace communities deemed unfit to reside on precious real estate.

"The piece concerns itself with garbage. What we throw away. This experimental work registers as a little odd yet heartfelt in its combination of sincerity and silliness ... The tone is less “trash talking” and more spiritually resembles a “garbage-apalooza” ... portions were inspired gobbledygook." - Theater Reviews From My Seat
