BODIES

An original piece Conceived & Directed by Jamila Reddy

Thursday, June 20th 10:30pm

Friday, June 21st 11pm

BODIES follows the story of a woman on her final day on Earth. The people in her life attempt to pinpoint the cause of her untraceable illness, and consume themselves with how to repair her body. This site-specific theatrical experience explores the way the Western world regards illness, diagnosis, and flaw, and how —in our attempt to remedy every ailment we can name—our minds and bodies collide.

THIS SAME PROGENY OF EVILS

An original piece Directed & Created by Louisa Proske

Based on Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream

Thursday, July 11th 11pm

Friday, July 12th 11:30pm

Heat waves, superstorms, floods, and oil spills are closing in on the fairies and humans of Shakespeare’s Midsummer Night’s Dream.Two corrupt politicians are on a bender towards self-realization, four young runaways spiral into the abyss of their own desires, and the forest looks at us with large, hopeful, bloodshot eyes. This Same Progeny of Evils is a brave theatrical experiment in colliding Shakespeare’s language with found text and original choreography.

ARTICHOKE HEARTS: A FABULOUS DESTINY

Directed & Adapted by Lian Walden

Thursday, July 18th 11pm

Friday, July 19th 11:30pm

A playful ensemble brings the whimsical world of Amélie to life under a big red tent in this multifaceted stage adaptation of the iconic French film. Local musicians will play a live original score as Amélie plots fanciful interventions into her neighbors’ lives while gathering the courage to break out of her own shell. Connect with a stranger and experience enchantment; leave with an increased sense of curiosity about the hidden gems beneath life’s mundane surfaces.

HIDING LIKE ELEPHANTS

Directed & Adapted by Will Detlefsen

Thursday, August 1st 10pm

Friday, August 2nd 10:30pm

The world premiere of HIDING LIKE ELEPHANTS— a new adaptation of the 1960 Jean-Luc Godard film, A Bout de Souffle — is a provocative love story between Michel Poiccard, a young and sexy criminal wanted for murdering a cop, and Patricia Franchini, a beautiful American woman who wants to be a journalist. Set in the streets of Paris, Godard’s first film is largely considered to be one of the seminal films of the French New Wave. For the first time, this classic film will be adapted for the stage in a sexy, smoky, and cinematic production as the final piece in this summer’s Wedge season at the Hangar Theatre.
