The TEAM is the Theatre of the Emerging American Moment, a NYC-based collaborative ensemble whose mission is to create new work that dissects and celebrates the experience of living in America today. Three-time winners of the Edinburgh Fringe First Award, ranked by Time Out New York Top Ten 2007 and Portugal’s Publico Top Ten 2009, the TEAM’s work has been seen all over NYC (including the Public Theater, Performance Space 122, and the Ohio Theatre), nationally (including the Walker Art Center), and internationally (including the Barbican Centre).

While on Governors Island the TEAM will be focused on Mission Drift, a pioneering journey west and east across the USA in search of an unbiased portrait of American Capitalism, told through atomic blasts, lizard ballet and people with bank accounts. Featuring music composed by Heather Christian, and created by the TEAM in the blazing heat of a Las Vegas June, Mission Drift is the newest work-in-progress from this award winning ensemble.
