My friend Katrina is creating a proposal for a theatre piece that will take place next year, if accepted. She sought me out because she is familiar with our class and MAW and greatly hopes to collaborate with anyone who is interested.
Her goals are to recreate the traditional theatre setting and construct a piece that will explore new and innovative ways to communicate between actors, audiences and designers. She’s tired of the typical performance delivery and the placement of audience members as mere spectators. She is excited about projections that could create abstract scenes, completely devoid of the usual props/scenery construction. She also mentioned shadow puppets!
This would truly be a collaborative project, as she has not written or decided on a definitive script. She would like to develop it along the way, feeding off of the ideas of those involved (actors, designers, etc.)—somewhat of an improv planning process and collective development.
