'REFLECTIONS THROUGH THEATRE' -
Monthly Play Readings - 7pm the 3rd Tuesday of each month
As we launch into 2017 with all the international/national challenges and worries surrounding us, many of us have been asking what is the role of the arts in our society? So Kate Hawkes and Eric Holowacz have put their heads (and artistic hearts) together to address that in a proactive manner.
Red Earth Theatre and Sedona Arts Center are hosting a series of reader’s theatre plays that explore social issues. The first 4 will be held on the 3rd Tuesday of each month in 2017,
Beginning Jan 24: a selection of brand new original 10minute plays from Little Black Dress.
Feb 21: Angels In America Part I: Millennium Approaches, directed by Michelle Lambeau
March 21: Travelling North, by Australian playwright David Williamson, directed by Gerard Maguire
April 18: for colored girls who have considered suicide/when the rainbow is enough, directed by Camilla Ross
Held at the Sedona Hub.
Suggested donation $5
Each reading will be followed by a facilitated informal discussion of the play.
We want your help, input, creative direction, and participation.
We believe the arts reflect and articulate ourselves, providing an opportunity for discussion and communication around issues that can be difficult and potentially divisive, through emotional connection to the human beings on stage.
With the most thought-provoking plays, the forth wall can become a mirror. The text can prove itself as social commentary and allegory. The live experience can be an epiphany, a lead to awakenings of mind, body, and spirit. With those thoughts, we plan this new series.
There are so many great plays out there - classics, the avant garde, translations. We can’t produce them all and some perhaps wouldn’t withstand a full production. However we believe that many provide just the artistic platform by which we can explore our common humanity when presented in a simple reader’s theatre format.
