Inside Rehearsal for Gracie and Rose

Gracie and Rose love off the grid and live off the land in 1950’s Wyoming — where wild horses run free and appearances are deceiving. Gracie lives as George so she and Rose can be together.

Is true love in the body worth the cost of living a lie in the world?
Gracie and Rose premieres at the Hollywood Fringe Festival June 16-29th. Written and Performed by Anastasia Coon. Directed by Che’Rae Adams.

Passion doesn’t pay the bills

Thanks to a grant from the Center for Cultural Innovation, I’m consulting for an exciting new Fringe show Gracie and Rose. Today we launched our IndieGogo campaign!

Check out the video and campaign details. Every dollar and share helps make this show of an even higher quality than if presented on passion and credit cards alone.

Bullying in the Arts Ep4: Edith Can Shoot Things and Hit Them

Artists at Play is a collective of creative professionals who have come together to curate quality theatre in Los Angeles. We present theatrical productions missing from the local landscape that tells the stories of communities underrepresented in Los Angeles theatre. The audience experience is our priority, and we aim to make theatre accessible to everyone.

Their current production, Edith Can Shoot Things & Hit Them, tackles bullying from POV of kids who are already pretty much on their own. Hear Producer Julia Cho on the topic (and forgive my low energy due to illness):

NEW YORK

The Nerds Are Back! And They’re Coming in Heels!

Join Brooklyn based performance collective A Collection of Shiny Objects for NERD PROM 2: HEROES ‘N’ HEELS. Celebrating our nerd heroes, if they’re in capes and spandex, or corsets and stilettos or all of the above. Enjoy live music and entertainment, a costume contest, dancing and great raffle prizes.

All proceeds support A Collection of Shiny Objects’ upcoming 2012-13 projects, including QUEERSPAWN, a new play by Mallery Avidon, and DARLING, a new rock/video game/hipster musical, adapted and inspired by Peter Pan and pop culture.

A Collection of Shiny Objects is a performance collective founded and led by Elizabeth Engiish, Jesse Geiger and Nathan Leigh, with a rotating group of collaborators and associate artists. They create live performance to explore the complexity of contemporary society and popular culture, especially representations of gender, sexuality, class and race. They are committed to blending performance disciplines: incorporating theater, music, dance, puppets, multimedia, and the deconstruction of the artifacts of popular culture. Their process is highly collaborative, involving many participating artists and multiple readings, workshops and developmental in-progress presentations. Their goals for open, in-progress showings is to allow audiences to view and respond to the work and continue an artistic dialogue about its content and social meaning.

Please consider making a tax-deductible gift to A Collection of Shiny Objects, via our fiscal sponsor, Fractured Atlas here.
