Accordion Time Machine, Anam Cara’s experimental theatre ensemble, is pleased to announce their latest production, Staring Contest. The performances take place Friday May 29th and Saturday May 30th at Toy Boat Community Art Space, 101 Fairview Rd. Asheville, NC 28803 The show technically starts at 8pm, but audience members are highly encouraged to arrive early as Accordion Time Machine hosts a range of fun surprises before the show “begins.” More information about the group can be found at

Accordion Time Machine performs once every 2 months. They work together collaboratively to produce original material for their shows. They are influenced by the non-illusory theatre aesthetic of the NeoFuturists of NYC and Chicago where there is no suspension of disbelief and the audience/performer conventions of traditional theatre are held loosely. The audience can expect pieces that are raw and personal, silly and absurd, and that incorporate audience interaction and the element of surprise. Accordion Time Machine and Anam Cara Theatre Co. bring a unique theatrical experience to the community.

Anam Cara Theatre strives to provide the community with progressive, thought-provoking works incorporating a unique blend of multiple art forms. For tickets and more information about Anam Cara Theatre, please visit, email or call 828-633-1773.
