    An abandoned office. Two mens desire for recognition. Invisible French back zipper. Chashama presents Desk, a new play written by Aaron Landsman, performed by Landsman with Julia Jarcho, and directed by Tory Vazquez. Chronicling the life and death of an online fashion boutique, Desk is performed in an abandoned office above Chashamas West 42nd Street space. The audience will be limited to 15. Todd Griffin has composed original music for the piece; choreography is being developed with Johanna Meyer. Both comedy and elegy, part fiction and part document, Desk questions the value of its own ironic detachment, even as it lampoons the business world and the American obsession with whats next. The dot com economy is long gone, but gangsterish CEO Rick Winnick isnt going anywhere. "Aaron," an employee and the plays narrator, starts out critical of both the internet and fashion worlds sense of their own importance. Soon, he is overcome by a desire to rescue his boss from impending doom, and he becomes Mr. Winnicks new right-hand man.
