PAST PRODUCTIONS


 

VOICEOVER


July 22 to July 30

 

VOICEOVER uses inner monologues in an extremist fashion to expose the muddled minds of a choreographer, his company of dancers, and a contrarian crew of jaded stagehands. As the performers stop and start a movement-based work that turns theatre inside out a la Pirandello. A collage of soliloquy, choreography, and theatricality, VOICEOVER pushes postmodern dance into circus hijinks as one unconventional cabaret act plays out in a hall of mirrors where the who, the what, and the where are ever changing.

This new and adventurous music-theater work, from librettist Jerry Mouawad and composer Marisa Wildeman, resurrects the spirit of Erik Satie, a groundbreaking, eccentric, fin de siècle composer who shielded dry umbrellas under his coat (no matter the weather) and stacked two grand pianos in his apartment (for reasons unknown).

TITLE AND DEED


AUGUST 10 to AUGUST 25

"Samuel Beckett for the Jon Stewart Generation" The NY Times

By Will Eno, Starring Todd Van Voris, Directed by Jerry Mouawad

“We are all embarked upon a strange, aimless journey from nowhere to nowhere — or to put it a bit more cheerily, from somewhere to somewhere else — according to the friendly sojourner in Will Eno’s Title and Deed, a haunting and often fiercely funny meditation on life as a state of permanent exile…. The graven imprint of Samuel Beckett is strong in Mr. Eno’s solo works” wrote the The New York Times.
