past + future

"The idea was for everyone to be treated like flowers, without punishment when they did badly, without praise when they did well. Things didn't work out."

We wanted to see if there was any interest in avant-garde theater in GR with our first production, "Flowers". It was a reasonable assumption that there was indeed.  After all, Hugo Claudin had been hosting avant bands at Mexicains Sans Frontieres for quite some time and a lot of the art in GR leans that way. Thanks to the people that came out. Below is contact info to participate in our next show.

Thanks to Eric Tank for documenting "Flowers".  We did get a lot of positive feedback for the band's set. Our tune "Bowls" with Wil Lucy, Mike Saunders, Hugo Claudin and Gary Perrine using marbles acoustically whilst Rebecca Rodriguez worked the melody on her classical guitar was received well.

Katherine Marty lit up the stage. I don't think I've ever worked with a pure theater person until Katherine. Her poetry was engaging, challenging and thought provoking.

Unfortunately there aren't any stills of Wil Lucy in Filters: Love. He brought deeper dimension to a simple piece.

Ben Scott-Brandt sat in for Gary Perrine on Friday in Spot-Light-Vast-Dark and LTD (above). Bobbie Gilbert and Mike Saunders appear as Box People.
