"The Real World" meets "No Exit." Habit is a cross between installation, performance, and theater, and it's never the same thing twice.

168 backers pledged $8,527 to help bring this project to life.

New Prizes! (Merci à French Institute/Alliance Française)

Helping to keep this incredible engine chugging along, our already generous co-presenter French Institute/Alliance Française have offered to Kick in a few prizes of their own.  Movie passes, language classes, memberships - we're jealous that we can't just grab these for ourselves.  Take a look at the Prizes to see the new additions.

Thank you to everyone who has contributed so far, and for all who are still considering. It's been going far better than we could've hoped for, and it's all because we have great fans and people who love the arts.  Please post our link if you haven't done so already because you never know who might get interested.

      Hello our dear supporters.

      This thing is almost open!

      Friday is the first day of HABIT, and we hope to see many of you there. The space is open from 1-9 pm, and it's free, so you can come any time and stay as long as you want. If you want to be sure to catch a whole run of the play, we suggest showing up around 6:30 pm. The building will have signs in front of it, and it's at:

      144 ESSEX STREET between RIVINGTON and STANTON
      on the EAST SIDE OF THE STREET, MIDDLE OF THE BLOCK

      Then join us after at Hotel Chantelle, where we'll be taking over the bottom floor till 11:00 pm (and free to stay after when it becomes a club). We'll be there by 9:15 pm and would love to start with a bang, so come on over early if you can.

      For those of you of not in New York, we wish you were here--and we hope we can put this thing up in your town soon.

      AFTER PARTY (9-11, but whatever, stay longer):

      Hotel Chantelle
      Basement
      92 Ludlow Street
      New York, NY 10002
      (212) 254-9100

      Hi, all

      Greetings from Berlin and New York! We are cast, we are staffed, and we're heavy into pre-production David will be back in NY next Wednesday, we start rehearsals the following day, and just one week after that, we open, on Friday the 21st, at 1pm. We're all tremendously excited to launch this in NY, and our partner, PS122, has been kind enough to make this little video, which we offer for your delectation

      We'll be in touch again before we launch, but check Habit's facebook page in the coming weeks for photos, press, and news of the build.

      Thank you all again for making this possible,

      David and Maria

      With 18 hours to go, we wanted to send a big thank-you to everyone who supported HABIT. Thanks to you, this project isn't just art; it's public art. It's not just theater; it's public theater. We're very grateful, and look forward to meeting you all at Essex Street.

      If you get a chance, please use these remaining hours to re-post, re-up, or cajole your friends into donating. Working with abandoned municipal space brings a fresh surprise every day.

      But the main point is to say THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH.

      See you soon

      David & Maria
