Winner of the Pulitzer Prize, this classic by Eugene O'Neill is a surprisingly contemporary play that crackles with fierce physicality, humor, and drama. After a 20-year separation, a coal barge captain is reunited with the daughter he unknowingly abandoned to a life of hardship. When Anna falls in love with a shipwrecked sailor, her father and her suitor come to recognize their own culpability in her plight, and all three struggle in their own way for salvation.
Delightfully gothic, beautiful and emotionally complex, Ada/Ava utilizes special-effect techniques from the early age of cinema — shadow puppetry, live-action silhouettes and overhead projection — to conjure a magic spell of multimedia storytelling, complete with a live musical score. Driven by innovation, the masterful technicians of Chicago-based Manual Cinema are one of the hottest rising ensembles in America, with audiences marveling at their creations even as their methods are plainly revealed.
Beside a lighthouse somewhere on the New England coastline, twin sisters tend to the tower's guiding light and to each other, until Ava unexpectedly dies. Here, the unrestrained imagination moves the melancholy act of mourning through of journey across the thresholds of life and death.
On an empty stage, a house is conjured from thin air. Residents move in, move out, clean up, burn down, sweep under, paint over, fence off and move on — and all the while, they live among the traces of residents present, past and future. Geoff Sobelle's HOME is a house party of the greatest proportion, telling the story of a house, and showing what it means to create home.
A magical, large-scale spectacle built from the ground up, HOME combines dance, illusion, live music, home-spun engineering and an inventive use of audience interaction to compose an experience that asks: Where is home? If it is not a place, what is home? HOME explores — and explodes — the relationship between "house" and "home," and it invites audiences to think twice about the physical and emotional bonds that connect us.
Written by Nobel Prize-winning author Albert Camus, staged by leading avant-garde French director Emmanuel Demarcy-Mota and produced by the celebrated Paris theater company Théâtre de la Ville, The State of Siege is set to take the country by storm this fall on its first visit to the United States. The rarely staged work, penned in 1948, weaves a tale of paranoia, endurance and political struggle resulting in a dizzying modern metaphor. With a renowned ensemble working on an epic scale, The State of Siege (L'État de siège) explores how art can serve as a way to process — and to resist — human atrocities. What role can art play in the face of peril? Faced with imminent danger, can the human spirit remain focused on the beauty of life?
