Hamm & Clov Stage Company: The Anam Project

Hamm and Clov Stage will demonstrate the creative process of the The Anam Project (“Anam” means soul in Gaelic), initiated two years ago in response to the terror attacks of 9/11. Members of the Irish immigrant community of New York joined with professional artists to reexamine the joys and sorrows of their lives. Heartfelt personal stories of their lives in America and Ireland were written and performed by members of the immigrant community, some of whom had never set foot on stage before. Members of the Irish immigrant community who participated in the Project will speak about it and perform selections of their own writing. Website: www.hammandclov.org

2:00 – 3:30

The Lark Theatre: Barebones

Many recipients of The Lark’s support are moving forward to other venues, including Day of Kings by Daphne Greaves, Fuente by Cusi Cram, Mary by David Simpatico, Panama by Michael Folie, and 13 Hallucinations of Julio Rivera by Stephen Culp.

Black Moon Theatre Company: Form as the Concentration of Truth

Artistic Director Rene Migliaccio will hold a workshop demonstrating his internationally acclaimed signature style coined “Expressionistic Realism”. “Expressionistic Realism” builds on the techniques of realistic acting, then combines that reality with heightened emotion and physicality past naturalism into an expressionistic style. Thoughts and emotions are exposed in a specific way by articulation of different body parts and by working intensely on the expressions of the face and the intensity of the eyes. Audience is encouraged to actively participate with trained company members…Come wearing comfortable clothes!!!. Website: www.blackmoontheatrecompany.org

Bravo Productions: Mamet Madness
