Adam Sussman invited you.
Physical Theatre SALON at Main Street
Friends of Guests • By Rebecca Longworth, Adam Sussman and Joan Howard
7:00pm until 10:00pm
What is the Salon?
It's a place and time to gather with local physical theatre makers, have a drink, talk about art, see some performances.
Each Salon (there will be about six this year) is organized around a theme relevant to physical performance. Every Salon will consist of performance and a participatory game that engages everyone in a creative exploration of the evening’s theme. HOBNOBBING IS ESSENTIAL to the Salon, so there will be lots of snacks and specialty drink on hand to aid in our chattering.
Ideally, you’ll leave the Salon full of ideas, and invigorated by your conversations that were sparked by the evening’s theme.
Who should attend?
YOU, and touts les amis. If you're interested in "physical theatre," or think you are, or don't know what physical theatre is but might like to find out, this salon is for you. We're leaving the definition of "physical theatre" purposely vague and broad so it can be inclusive of all the forms and meanings you can give it.
Why have a Salon?
1) To build community, inspire one another, and meet collaborators.
2) Because we performing types don't get to hang out enough.
3) So that you can pretend you're Gertrude Stein. Unless you'd rather be Alice?
4) Because we love you.
How does this work?
You show up at 7pm, you chat with your peeps, you see a little tidbit of performance, you participate in some creative activity with all the other guests, maybe you have a drink and a snack. We're asking $5 donation at the door to cover our costs, but if you're a starving artist, you can show us what you got (sing a song, recite some poetry, show off a trick) and we'll let you stay.
Also, there will be a cash bar so you can swill a drink while you talk Lecoq.
*** The inaugural Salon on Monday, Feb 25 will feature excerpts from Federico Garcia Lorca's highly perverse play "The Public" directed by Rebecca Longworth and Adam Sussman. Stay tuned for more details! ***
your hosts, Joan Howard & Rebecca Longworth
