A Performance in the 6th Borough

by on Sep.20, 2010, under The Sixth Boro, Theatre

WHAT:  Material v. Memory, A Walk Through 11 Perishable Events 

WHEN: Tuesday 9/28/10 at 6:34pm sharp (early start due to loss of sunlight; this is an outdoor event)

WHERE:  UPenn’s Kelly Writers House in the Arts Cafe; 3805 Locust Walk, Philadelphia,  PA 

COST:  This event is free and open to the public; no reservations required

You will be taken on a short and lovely evening walk across UPenn’s beautiful campus, stopping along the way to see site-specific performances 3-5 minutes long. I have written and will be performing “Dream Me Up a Bartender” in an old trolley car, a darkly comic monologue about fear, fathers, drinking and the meaning of nightmares.   In keeping with the event’s theme all pieces will be performed one time and one time only, then they’re gone forever with the sinking sun.

Co-produced by the University of Pennsylvania’s Kelly Writers House and the Philadelphia Dramatists Center, and curated by playwright and former ArtsEdge Resident Greg Romero, Material v. Memory is a guided walk through eleven perishable writing events, all designed to be experienced by a traveling audience for three to five minutes, and then to disappear forever. Projects explore questions of space, place, loss, and our infinite/intimate relationship with memory. Also featuring MIKE AGRESTA, BRIGHT LIGHT THEATRE COMPANY, BIDISHA DASGUPTA, PAULA DIEHL, NICOLE GARMAN, BRIAN GRACE-DUFF and WALLY ZIALCITA, CLIFFORD HALL, SHANE HANSON and ALICIA RODRIGUEZ, GREG ROMERO, and MICHELLE TARANSKY.
