Again - Family, Friends and Lovers
by Exchange Artists
Aug. 19 - Aug. 21, 2016
The Exchange Artists announce their upcoming production Again- Family, Friends, and Lovers, a multi-media, partially improvised new show created from real moments of regret.
Again- Family, Friends, and Lovers, provides a fully staged opportunity for actors to reenact moments from their pasts with the hope of better outcomes. For the performance, each storyteller will encounter another actor prepared to play the person from their past moments. The outcomes of each encounter will not be rehearsed but will be improvised live on the night of the show. Each evening will include several of these improvised new outcomes as well as video and audio accounts of past moments from additional community members. In their honesty, these performances will provide a look at our collective humanity, our vulnerabilities, and our ability to make better choices for ourselves and those around us.
Friday, August 19th at 8pm features storytellers Anne Hulsman, Michael Joplin, Geronimo Son, and Rommel Sulit, together with actors Jen Brown, Marie Fahlgren, Zac Thomas, and Craig Nigh.
Saturday, August 20th at 8pm features storytellers Kelli Bland, Doug Costello, Kendra Franklin, and Jill Bailey, together with actors Nicholas Saenz, Geronimo Son, and Zac Thomas.
Sunday, August 21st at 8pm features storytellers Heath Allyn, Bridget Farr, Brooke Iglesias, and Zac Thomas, together with actors Marie Fahlgren, Nicholas Saenz, and Rommel Sulit.
Additional contributors from the community include: Pete Betcher, Lana Dietrich, and Dallas Tate. Direction by Bridget Farr and Rachel Wiese. Technical Direction by Zac Crofford. Video production and editing by Nina Vizcarrondo. Additional video editing by Ria ferich. Conceived by Bridget Farr.
