A Glimpse Into the Final Throes of the Night of New Works Process
On a rainy summer night - in a too warm room - twenty five artists gathered together to share ideas and space. TWENTY FIVE. There was sharing and checking in, there was movement and gesture, there was dialogue and essay, there was laughter and moments so disturbing we shook, there was questioning and debating, there were opinions and truths. We talked about what comprises America, how we deal with trauma, how we define “normal,” how we talk about sex, how ghosts live with us, Twister and lost needles, phone calls and paranoia, flashlights, aluminum foil, a Rubik’s cube, and so much more.
It was a beautiful - if sweaty - night. It was a lovely alchemy of artists all working and learning together. It was intimate and vulnerable and loud and challenging. Anxious, jittery, moment-before-the-storm electricity flowed through us all.
And the best part of it all? We’re inviting you in.
For three nights only THIS week - Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday - we will gather at the intimate and yet loud Bryant-Lake Bowl and share with our audiences all the work and growth and learning that has been this Night of New Works process. We’re excited - and nervous! - for the final component of the workshop process to arrive - and that’s our time with you.
Join us and be a part of the conversation. We can’t wait to see you there.
See you under the umbrella!
