Girls Who Walked on Glass



a new theater experience

Three young women, three provocative stories.
Walk with them through seven different rooms and multiple corridors as their stories unfold.

"Girls Who Walked on Glass" is a new play in which the audience walks though living rooms, workplaces, bars and restaurants following the lives of three young women as their stories play out in three different sets of fully dramatized, interlocking scenes. This is not a mood piece or an art installation. It is fully-scripted and fully dramatized.

Polaroid Stories


a drama by Naomi Iizuka

 

A visceral blend of classical mythology and real life stories told by street kids, Naomi Iizuka's Polaroid Stories journeys into a dangerous world where myth-making fulfills a fierce need for transcendence, where storytelling has the power to transform a reality in which characters' lives are continually threatened, devalued, and effaced.

 

Inspired in part by Ovid's "Metamorphoses," the play takes place on an abandoned pier on the outermost edge of a city - a way stop for dreamers, dealers, and desperadoes and a no-man’s land where runaways seek camaraderie, refuge, and escape.
All these stories and lies add up to something like the truth.

Cast/Production Team: Allison Villasenor, Austin Sasser, LJ Brodie, Ana Armenta, Emma Burnett,
Katharine Ariyan, Nia, Spoorti Hegde, Alec Pacheco, Travis Charron, Kerr McKinlay

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.

Directed by: Anton Korenev
