NO NEWS & STREET PEOPLE

Written by Stacey Spain

NO NEWS Directed by Stacey Spain

STREET PEOPLE  Directed by  Deanna Podstawa

These two shows feature mask work, humor, clowning and characters you will love!

 

SYNOPSIS: 

No News was written as a tiny homage to Samuel Beckett.  Three lady clowns, one nebulous place, a daily routine which includes unrequited love.

Street People explores connection and how people can sometimes create their own family of friends. Characters include a social worker who just learned to smoke, a teen runaway, a Jim Beam-soaked pontoon boat captain and a cart pushing, plant talking two headed shaman.

DYNAMIC

Written and Directed by: Dana Miller

A darkly comic look at the repercussions of family dysfunction experienced by three generations of women.

SYNOPSIS: Louise’s family comes together as she is visited by the ravages of old age. But wounds old and new serve up their own challenges to her three daughters as they wrestle with whether to forgive, forget, or hold on. A pointed look at what happens when someone who never cared for you can no longer care for themselves. 

Foul language – dark subject matter.

SOMEONE KNOW BETTER

Written and Directed by: Everett Ray George

Some ethnic American youths attempt eradication in this Rez-set, recent period piece. 

SYNOPSIS:  A decade ago, three young minority Americans headed out to the desert to get rid of what they figured to be their country's biggest problem. It was just before midnight and they brought along a journalist to document the event. This is their exorcism. A second ever Rez-set, Rough Talk one-act.

POETS OF THE CARIBBEAN: ETCHED IN BONE

Spoken Word Poetry and music with a Caribbean flare

Creator:  Jessie James Ziglar

SYNOPSIS: 'Poets of the Caribbean: Etched in Bone' is effectively the fourth installment in the ongoing series created to celebrate both spoken word and music. What first found inspiration on the steps of a rental house in Takoma Park, MD (a stones throw from the D.C. diamond boundary line) and later transitioned to a commercial greenhouse in rural Virginia, is making its western US debut in 'The Biggest Little City in the World'. Using the power of the individual voice to benefit the collective, creating a place to touch stage and hearts, and sustaining a venue to be heard and belong have all been fundamental goals of these poets and musicians. Adding the Caribbean flare and mindset allows for the space and time to entertain the extremes and meet in the middle. In proud collaboration with Reno's own Spoken Views Collective and The Bruka Theater, Poets of the Caribbean will create craft, present movement, and inspire flow. Enjoy!
