SCRIBBLED LINES

presented by Poetic Theater 

  

Through poetry, song, media, and movement Vanessa Rappa and Poetic Theater Productions presents a theatrical experience that sets the audience members in the middle of a dreamscape. Somewhere strange yet familiar, the piece explores isolation, abandonment, and the search for connection, beauty, and certainty. A choreopoem in structure, audiences will follow a being who re-enters and discovers the body  and a being who is stuck in one place .

 

What can be done when you are stuck in a cycle? Will the repetition ever cease?
What can you do when you try so hard to hold on to being human, and it keeps falling from your grasp like a constant punishment?

This is Me Eating ___
a live immersive experience
presented by Et Alia Theater
 

  

This is Me Eating___ started as an online project where women from all over the world were invited to fill in the blank and create a piece of their own that dealt with their relationship to eating and food.

After receiving the City Artist Corps Grant,
Et Alia Theater decided to produce This is Me Eating___ as an immersive, live theater performance.

The themes of food and body image are very specific and unique to different cultures and traditions, yet almost the same in their effect on mental health and societal pressures. From the submissions we received, some felt empowered to “eat” their problems, insecurities, pain, or mental illnesses, while others felt inspired to share their family eating traditions that may not be understood by others.

 

We will show the potential of dialogue between projection, sound and the physical body, and how this can result in the audience feeling transported in a stimulative and meditative space that feels beyond reality.

A Women's Suffrage
Splendiferous Extravaganza!

A Staged Reading
presented by The Pleiades Project
 
directed by Caroline Miller
 

  

With a generous grant from the Lower Manhattan
Cultural Council, The Pleiades Project presents the stories of the trail-blazing leaders and watershed moments of the women’s suffrage movement in the United States.

As the centennial celebration of the ratification of the 19th Amendment approached in 2020, The Pleiades Project was inspired to create and produce a music-theater work in conversation with this milestone event in American history. With a generous grant from the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council and co-created by November Christine, Noelle McMurtry, and Caroline Miller, A Women’s Suffrage Splendiferous Extravaganza! was born, inspired by turn-of-the-20th-Century vaudeville.

2021-11-05 A Woman's Suffrage.png

In A Women’s Suffrage Splendiferous Extravaganza!, our daring Maestra Impresaria & her dynamic troupe present the stories of the trail-blazing leaders and watershed moments of the women’s suffrage movement in the United States. Through unique adaptations of suffrage propaganda, popular music from the Library of Congress Archive: Songs of Suffrage, and newly-commissioned songs from NYC-based composer Lacy Rose, we endeavor to showcase the breadth & diversity within this eight-decade long struggle, including the pivotal contributions of suffragists of color, who have been continually marginalized and erased from our collective re-telling of the history of the women’s suffrage movement.
 

Join us on an exhilarating jaunt to celebrate, explore, and problematize this historic fight to win women the vote! By examining the intersection of the voices of American women of the past and women of today, we ask ourselves and our audience to consider how the fight for equality continues in this quest for the enfranchisement of all citizens in our democracy.

November Christine: Co-Creator (Book, Lyrics) & Composer
Lacy Rose: Composer
Noelle McMurtry : Co-Creator (Dramaturg) & Producer
Caroline Miller: Co-Creator (Book, Lyrics), Director & Producer

THE SEAGULL
a comedy in 4 acts
by Anton Chekhov
 

  

a journey into the past,
as it appears in dreams:
with live characters and music

2022 The Seagull at Alchemical.jpeg

Performed in Russian language with live music (English captions available) – Directed by Anton Korenev
 

The performance uses the original text in early modern Russian language that Chekhov himself used to speak and write (which was abolished by the language reforms at the beginning of the 20th century). The use of the original text reproduces the sounds, melody and poetics of the spoken Russian language from the end of the 19th century.

In order to immerse the audience into the atmosphere of a Chekhovian estate of 1896, the production utilizes Russian music of that time period: songs, romances, and musical compositions by Pyotr Tchaikovsky.
 

Director's note: This production takes into account feedback of John Strasberg, my mentor. Special attention was paid to John's experience while working on one of the most successful productions of a Chekhov's play in English in the United States - The Actors Studio's production of "Three Sisters" in 1964 (directed by Lee Strasberg), where John Strasberg was the stage manager.
