Lab 5: Here & nevermore

An ongoing experiment helmed by company member Logan Hart, this mysterious, recursive work is concerned with the creative autonomy of the actor.

Using the poetry of Wislawa Szymborska and the music of Tchaikovsky to inspire practical work on action, Hart and collaborator Lauren Valice will compose a performance rooted in their rigorous experiments. Then it will die & Hart will resurrect the process w/ a new aggregate of flesh.

Secret location, one-night-only. Message lgnbrry22@gmail.com for more details.

Also coming soon…

How do I know you love this country, as I do?

I don’t, I told her. But that doesn’t mean I want to blow her up.

Includes a Runaways World Premiere:  a dossier (produced by the Freedom of Information Act)

Under construction… more soon.
