Point Break LIVE!
Warning: contains gnarly profanity
New York Magazine calls it "low brow brilliance." LA Weekly raves that it's “so hideously over the top, you can’t stop laughing." And even Gary Busey hails it as "an expression of imagination in the highest form." Making its New York debut after a smash-hit run in LA, Point Break LIVE! is an outrageous theatrical experience that's part comedy show, part pool party, and 100% pure adrenaline. Taking every queue from Kathryn Bigelow's 1991 blockbuster, Point Break LIVE! follows FBI Special Agent Johnny Utah as he infiltrates the bank-robbing surfer gang known as the "Ex-Presidents"—while fighting his growing admiration for groovy criminal mastermind Bodhi.
In lieu of Keanu Reeves as Johnny Utah, members of the audience get their chance in the spotlight to play the hero. A production assistant/stunt double provides cue cards to steer that night's Johnny through his epic journey, as he learns to surf, sky dive, and fire his gun aimlessly in the air. Attendees also play the part of the movie's extras, which entails getting soaked in fake, washable blood as they become bank robbery hostages, and catching some of that Australian hurricane from Bodhi's final big surf. All ticket-holders receive a Point Break Survival Kit, which includes a poncho and earplugs.
A beacon of art thriving in Brooklyn’s Gowanus neighborhood, Littlefield serves as a new type of performance space. In a nod to the region's industrial past, the venue is housed inside a 1920s warehouse, but its sustainable aesthetic is distinctly modern. Sound walls crafted from recycled rubber tires cradle the waves unleashed by state-of-the-art loudspeaker systems. The bar—pouring microbrews, wine, and concoctions from WD-50 mixologist Tona Palomino—was gleaned from former bowling alley lanes. And all of the events the space hosts, from art shows to film screenings and live concerts, is fueled by wind power. It's all part of Littlefield's mission to encourage creativity without leaving even the slightest print from a carbon pinky-toe.
