WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

In the absurd town of Vanderville, citizens wait patiently to be annihilated on a weekly basis, go to war only on Mondays, stuff ducks for a living, and crown new queens with meatball dances. When the current Queen is found guilty of whispering to a stuffed duck she is duct taped and stripped of her crown. With a score of Kurt Weill songs performed live by musicians Franz Nicolay and Carrie Lewis, Now Leaving Vanderville humorously addresses themes of power, fear and privacy, and reflects on contemporary U.S. politics while comically interpreting the struggle between the individual and society. Also, la table, a duet in which two sophisticated women dressed in elegant black flail and twist in a split-level world. What starts as an attempt at snobby social composure quickly degenerates into a state of chaos as their obsessive-compulsive tendencies take over. Performed to a dramatic film noir score, la table is the upper crust society girl's worst dinner party nightmare. Choreography: IVY BALDWIN Performers: IVY BALDWIN, LAWRENCE CASSELLA, TARYN GRIGGS, MINDY NELSON and JEANNE SCHICKLER Musicians: CARRIE LEWIS and FRANZ NICOLAY Music by KURT WEILL Costume Design by MINDY NELSON Appropriate for audiences 12 and up.
