CALL TO ACTION: National UBU ROI Bake-Off
PRESIDENT’S DAY: Monday, February 19, 2018
Paula Vogel sounded the call,…5 theatre artists and 1 sculptor in Frederick, Maryland answered!
We modified Vogel’s rules for a collaborative playwriting “bake-off” to fit our small merry band of writers: David Allerton, Kevin Cole, Amber George, Sarah Hempel Irani and Lydia Hadfield. Dramaturg David Allerton prepared and delivered background knowledge on Alfred Jarry’s Ubu Roi: its historical, social and cultural context. The party then watched Geoff Dunbar’s 20 minute animated short adaption of Ubu Roi to foment recognition, outrage and inspiration. Next? Riotous creative catharsis! Theatre professional Doug Grove arrived just in time to read the part of Chipmunk #2.
Recess: Time Travel
IO Duarte, (whose visual art is displayed directly to my right), videoed the reading at SHE/THEY2018. Many thanks to them!
Last night’s “Bomb cyclone” freezing temperatures couldn’t keep the crowd away from this roast of 2017! Brave the cold, explore Frederick’s first Saturday of 2018, and catch the second night of this original comedy by IO Duarte and Kevin Cole!
