The Irondale Ensemble Project is as close as we come these days to the Elizabethan acting companies that once presented Shakespeare’s plays to the Earl of Leicester, Sir Francis Drake and the Virgin Queen of England. ...What is on offer is the miracle of the word made flesh. I wish you joy in it.” —Lewis Lapham, editor of Lapham’s Quarterly

Urban Dance Collective returns to the Irondale Center with Niles Ford's Summer of Hate/15 Steps and the world premiere of A Time to Love.

Act I: Summer of Hate/15 Steps

This work reveals societal beliefs through the eyes of the working class, during the summer following the election of President Obama. It reflects the continual idiosyncratic struggle for individuals and families to make ends meet during a period of economic crisis.


Act II: A Time to Love

This collection of vignettes documents the human pursuit for the greater meaning of life. Throughout periods of either prosperity or adversity, we must have love for one another.
