Alexandra Kelly Colburn: termiNATION at Joe’s Movement Emporium, Nov 17

NextLOOK: Alexandra Kelly Colburn
Friday, November 17, 2017 . 7 PM

Location: Joe’s Movement Emporium

termiNATION is an in-process movement-based solo work investigating life and death through the lens of a pregnant war widow. Inspired by an adolescence and early adulthood steeped in the events of post-9/11 and the recent inauguration of Donald Trump, this piece explores the role women have to play as we carry this new era of politics to term. In the maelstrom of American culture, 21st-century colonialism and the cyclical blind faith to trust the institution, termiNATION looks to use the last sixteen years worth of politics, perspective and war to ask ourselves what kind of world we want to create for our children.

Tickets: Pay what you wish.

Wilson sees nothing wrong with his marriage to Ruby nor his job as a police officer in the midst of the BlackLivesMatter movement. He smiles through pain Ruby wishes he would share. When her best friend loses her husband to the quick trigger of a white cop, Ruby forces Wilson to confront his idealized manhood. An exploration of legacy, gun rights, secrets not well kept, and what it means to “live your truth” in an America built on lies.

Happenstance Theater presents the Cabaret Noir: A Film Noir inspired theatrical montage. This series of dark, comic vignettes reveals Femmes Fatales and fedoras, trench coats and torch songs, intrigue, suspense and shadows. Featuring the six players of Happenstance Theater in a virtuosic display of physical comedy, object manipulation, and period style, music played on multiple instruments, and characters costumed in vintage clothing. Performed by Mark Jaster, Sabrina Mandell, Karen Hansen, Gwen Grastorf, Sarah Olmsted Thomas and Alex Vernon.

“…a glimmer of story, a hatful of characters, a whisper of atmosphere, a smorgasbord of music and a scent of mystery. Those who love Film Noir will be delighted, those who don’t care for it will be charmed and amused…” – Broadway World

Tickets: $23 General Admission, $17 Student, Senior or Veteran. Click here.
