We’re halfway through our workshops for Intellectual Property, and so far, all I can say is it this show is about a heck of a lot of things. Power. Revolution. Leadership. Water Scarcity. Betrayal. The FUTURE. And most importantly, a future where Soul Transfer is possible. You wake up one day, and you’re you…. but you’re in another body.
In our future world, there’s no magic soul switching à la Freaky Friday. There are physical consequences and moral betrayals attached to the procedure. And who benefits from it and who is exploited by it, personally and globally, is an ongoing question.
Soul Transfer is heady stuff. Like, this shit is literally metaphysical. It’s hard to talk too much about it without feeling like you’re on some existential trip.
Hey there, Theatre-Creatures! We’ve spent the last two weeks kicking off rehearsals for our upcoming Fringe show--PENELOPE—in a mini-workshop with our cast, company, and other guests! Since its workshop in summer 2015, PENELOPE has changed juuust a bit in form, transforming from an indoor variety show to an outdoor BBQ party, so we thought it was apt to start setting the scene outside.
Welcome back Savage Umbrella ellas and fellas!
This week our very own and very talented Lisa Marie Brimmer has some thoughts to share about transplanting creative control and why she's so excited to share our next workshop production: INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY.
