Vision

It has become obvious that old systems no longer work and have created disconnection and separation instead of depth and unity. Experiencing this reality can be frustrating and heartbreaking  and at times hysterical and laugh out loud funny. Reflecting on our past experiences can provide us fresh perspectives. There always exists an option to break from harmful patterns of behavior to explore unconventional options  and to—perhaps—arrive at something truly original 

 

We choose plays which helps to identify broken systems and imagine new ways of being together. Our play selections attempt to elevate the silenced: Women. Queer. Black. Indigenous. Disadvantaged. Differently-Abled.

AUDITION PIECES: (MONOLOGUE AND SONG)

NARRATOR: This is an obituary, year 2020. This obituary is for two lovers who had never touched. A story not possible till this very moment in time. A smashing of old fashion gallantry and high-tech sex, the impossible fuck, the plague infected love story of The Q, told on every forum of communication except the forum of flesh.

WOMAN: I lay dreaming, lusting through dark antiquarian reveries as soft white ash and blackened leaves gentle their way to my rooftop. East of the watershed is burning, but I am in a puppeteer’s shop, dragging my fingertips across marionettes, miniature hands carved in gesture, painted lips. One large polycephalic stick puppet, with a smoothly sanded face of Jesus, a saint, and three men pulled from pews and altars, sits propped against a wall, taking me in. The darkest of wood, cherry rouged cheeks. Long lashes of sad men. Twelve dollars. The puppeteer says, “This puppet is for holding over your face as you are chased by bulls, and God will watch you as the horns brush your ass and the sound of hooves drown out the sound of your heart.” Twelve dollars. My pockets empty. I said aloud, “I want this.”

I wake up in want, thinking, I am not religious, I do not know what this dream means. Outside, a blood orange sun rises, the ground dusted with the remains of dead flora and fauna. Considering, I do know what it is to be chased by bulls. Figuratively, surely, literally, once. We ran as fast as we could, the cattle behind us, pushing us through the field, to the oak tree on the rock. He was in tears, believing God sent this stampede to punish him for his work as Butcher. The way he cut a swine’s body, hung it in the freezer, twirling on hook. I thought, this man thinks God is watching him. Maybe that made him appealing, the way he cried while being chased by bulls, while I scrambled up the rock, thinking we will probably sleep together tonight. Because, like I said before, I am not religious, I do not know what any of this means. We didn’t know then that the field would burn twenty years later, that flames would chase the bulls, all of us running for twelve dollars, wondering why God was watching.
