POSTPONED: * October 1-4: -BUNG, a controversial and explosive theater/film work by Belgium's leading director and writer Josse De Pauw.
* October 1-5: the exclusive US presentation of British solo performer Marisa Carnesky in Jewess Tattooess-old world nostalgia tangles with the breaking of deep-rooted taboos.
* October 15-18: Improbable Theatre returns to UCLA Live with The Hanging Man-a ridiculous, beautiful, and ultimately bittersweet journey.
* October 15-19: Acclaimed Scottish-born monologist Oscar McLennan weaves a darkly comic tale in The Quiet Bastard: The Director's Cut, combining surreal humor and manic energy with a modern nod to Samuel Beckett.
* October 22 - November 2: The legendary Shakespeare's Globe Theatre kicks off its first US tour at UCLA Live with Twelfth Night, an "original practices" production true to Shakespeare's time. Direct from a sold-out run in London.
* December 17-19: The exclusive U.S. premiere of Berlin's revolutionary Volksb-hne am Rosa-Luxemberg Platz performing Dostoevesky's The Insulted and Injured. Adapted and directed by renegade German director Frank Castorf.
