Professional performers and musicians from across the country will come together for 7 days to create 7 devised works for two stagings of innovative, inspiring and thought-provoking performances at the historic St. Mane Theatre in Lanesboro, MN on Friday, June 15 and Sunday, June 17 at 7:30 p.m.
Inspired by the collaborative and experimental work done by theater companies such as the Rude Mechs, the Neo-Futurists, and the Saratoga International Theater Institute, Audacious Raw Theater (A.R.T.) has been conceived as a multi-year initiative to foster the creation and development of new works, while serving as a performance art companion to the Art in the Park fine art festival presented by Lanesboro Arts on Saturday, June 16.
The theme for year two, The Sound and the Fury, stems from Shakespeare’s Macbeth:
Out, Out, brief candle!
Life’s but a walking shadow, a poor player
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage
And then is heard no more: it is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
The artists include Jerome Yorke, Jr. a devised theater-maker and clown from Cincinnati; Hilary Williams a Chicago based actress, writer and educator; Penelope Walker a Chicago-based theater, TV, and film actor; stage actress Helen Merino from Austin, Texas; Emily June Newton a theater maker and comedian character creator, originally from Australia; Jay Owen Eisenberg an actor, writer and arts educator based in Minneapolis by way of New York City and Los Angeles; Jacinta Clusellas a guitarist, composer and arranger from Buenos Aires, Argentina, currently based in NYC; Katie Berger a performer, composer, and teaching artist based in St. Petersburg, FL, and Catherine Glynn, who divides her time between performing and producing theater and executive coaching at Fortune 500 companies around the world. The show will be stage managed by Nan M. Zosel of Minneapolis.
Prepare to be surprised and delighted by 7, or more, newly devised works of Audacious Raw Theater, while also gaining insight into the creative process and embracing the spontaneous. Together the group will be revising and recreating throughout their time in Lanesboro. Audiences are encouraged to come for both stagings as each performance will be unique!
