COMPANY CREATION FESTIVAL
The 8th annual Company Creation Festival presents four performance works by progressive theatre ensembles in repertory.
Crunch | Waxworks
Three best friends, run aground on shitty jobs and instability, try to keep their love for each other alive while caring for a fourth friend who has become a powerful, ravenous, cave-dwelling entity. Even worse, the neighborhood gay bar is a total ghost town and the Target is closed.
LiaoZhai: Tale of Extraordinary | Assembly Call
Inspired by a collection of ancient Chinese folktales in which the dead and the living co-exist. This highly physical piece takes you on a journey between the tangible world and spiritual realm, where raw human emotion reveals itself honestly.
Ordinary Objects | Strings & Things Puppet Theatre
This vibrant, upbeat, absurd object theater piece explores the surrealist imagery of René Magritte with anthropomorphic objects and puppetry, plus further inspiration from the music of John Cage.
Wolf | Kore Theatre Project
On a modern-day college campus, lovers Bria and Brandon play unwilling mediators between their friends Tara and Taalim. This new play with original music and choreography explores themes of intersectionality, female friendship, mental health, and desirability politics.
