OMG we're officially ten years old! Our very first show debuted in July 2007, and now we'd like to say thank you to all you wonderful artists and audience members for supporting the first ten years of this crazy, messy, beautiful experiment.
Join us for a backyard BBQ style celebration this coming Saturday, July 15, 2017 at 6:00 PM. Birthday cake! Music! Fun!
The party is free, but the location's a mystery... so you have to RSVP!
Can't make it to our party, but want to give Savage Umbrella the best b-day gift ever? Head over to our GiveMN page to support the next ten years of exciting new work and conversation!
Hey, hey! We're busy getting ready for our 10th Birthday Party (have you RSVP'd yet?!), but we're excited to make another announcement. These cuties are going to help us create Savage Umbrella's newest work, Velvet Swing!
Inspired by the notorious tale of Evelyn Nesbit, the original 19th Century supermodel and leading lady of the “Crime of The Century,” Velvet Swing focuses on truth and testimony, choice and circumstance, and the origin of the American Woman. (We invite you to fall down a Wikipedia spiral here.)
Drum roll please....
Not to mention the directing/writing dream(y) team:
WHAT IS A WORKSHOP PRESENTATION?
Savage Umbrella believes the audience (that’s you!) is a vital part of the creation process. That’s why we invite you into the messy parts, the unfinished work. Together, we are so much more, and we can create art that reflects pieces of ourselves: our joys, our fears, our stories. After the work-in-progress showing, we invite you to lend your voice to the new play making process through our signature audience conversations.
All audience members are invited to participate in the conversation, or just listen and write down thoughts on the surveys we provide! If post-show conversations aren't your thing... that's okay, too! We welcome feedback in whatever way is most comfortable to you.
