When we’re afraid of being alone, why do we look up?
After we turned from the vastness of the cosmos back to ourselves, we found we’d all landed in the untidy moments that send tremors through the sense of control we have over our own lives.
Saturn Returns orbit has brought it back home to The Neo-Futuarium for a Neo-Lab workshop performance.
Get jazzed. Get very jazzed.
It’s visible by the naked eye for one night only on March 7th at 7:30pm, snow or shine.
We’re venturing out into the cosmos and we’d love your company.
If you have an appetite for a little more art we invited our friends from Poems While You Wait (typewritten poetry on demand).
Check out their magic here.
In short: Feed yourself — watch/listen/eat some art — talk about it.
Hope to see you there, friends.
Neo-Lab is an original works residency that annually commissions one new play anchored by innovative approaches to creation. Offering public presentations and opportunities for audience interaction throughout the season, Neo-Lab supports artist retreats and stipends, public readings and presentations, and a full production the following season. During the 2015-16 season, Neo-Lab’s inaugural workshop is Ensemble Member Tif Harrison’s Saturn Returns.
Pastoral Artisan Cheese, Bread & Wine is happy to be the evening’s Opening Night Partner, providing their signature artisan cheeses and bread, and the event will include libations as well. Information about Pastoral can be found at www.pastoralartisan.com.
After we turned from the vastness of the cosmos back to ourselves, we found we'd all landed in the untidy moments that send tremors through the sense of control we have over our own lives. The responses we have are natural: pain, frustration, anger, ridicule, humorous deflection, and forgetting. But we are also trying to imagine ways to not have control, ways of living in ruin, ways of writing ourselves as the flayed tragi-comic creatures we are. This material started as five independently crafted 'lectures' that we are now weaving together in the rehearsal room.” Tif Harrison wrote this. Get acquainted.
