Building the set on stage

Building the set on stage

In real time we watch a house being built, framed, and lived in.

This was an experience that sticks with you after you leave the theater. The stage changes dramatically from the dark bare stage with only a bed and a door to a whole two story house.

The musical becomes a dance as the construction workers and newly weds and other family members enter their newly built home.

magic tricks

The play begins with magic tricks that has people appear and disappear. The couple are having trouble sleeping together, but life goes on and the magical acts allude to the more depressing facts of life.

The rooms slowly build with the kitchen, bedrooms, dining, and bathroom.

Stairs and constant flow of people

Stairs and constant flow of people

The stairs create this movement that is liek an escalator. The repetition of people marching up and down carrying on with the dancing moving in theme of a new home.

Marital problems

Geoff Sobelle's Home shows drama and laughter that is pantomimed.

The day begins and the sun rises, the grandmother has her coffee, and the onslaught of activities calls for different wardrobes. The pace picks up and the carthartic episode is funny and a mimetic reality that is over whelming.

Bainbridge green

Bainbridge green

This is a island that for a short while becomes a fantastic mirror reflecting light and sharp sounds of another world. The parking signs, parking meters, and the sound of people walking by does not take away from the mystery of story telling.

Love

Love

The class struggle between Miss Julia and Jean her servant have a relationship, and the force Rebecca O'Hanlon-Rodriguez is comparably harsh to her exotic mother played Kelly McAnally.

Jean played by Michael Pliskin

The dirt is a symbol of the class discrepancy, and how people should be treated is mistaken for personal possessions.

Nailed to a cross sex position 101

Nailed to a cross sex position 101

I imagine the guys that want to be dominated. I can see the guilt in Burns face, and a pleasurable fantasy somewhere in between fiction and memoir.

Corrina Burns presents Bind

Corrina Burns presents Bind

In a three course theater meal at the Drake alongside Broderick Jones and Bob Stineman. First, The Turn of the Screw with little vision into the dark novella by Henry James. The second act is ridiculous cartoon that breaks the tension. And Lastly, Corrina Burns comes out after performing as the prude governess in the Turn of the Screw, and tells a hellish story of the sex industry in Quacker Old City Philadelphia.

Bind

Bind

The waving hands in this performance distract us from the pornographic ideas, or maybe they give us the most aspects of the fleshy situations.

Puppet show by Broderick Jones

Puppet show by Broderick Jones

British side entertainment is hilariously difficult to stand. It is obscene and before the puppet show begins the puppeteer explains how he has been drinking whiskey all night to prepare.

A menacing grin

A menacing grin

The puppets are for the most part focusing our attention on the fact that this is about something real.

Faust makes a pact with the Devil

Faust makes a pact with the Devil

The police are involved and the flying man bursts into flames and ends with the audience's own sound effect (spontaneous combustion)

Ubu and Faust combined

Ubu and Faust combined

The style of Ubu and the ill fated Faust is a combination that is artistic genius. The drawings for this show were extremely easy considering the rich material I was working with.

The Turn of The Screw

Adaptation of Henry James novel

The set is covered in shadow, and highlights the maneuver of the two person play around a stair and bannister platform.

The governess and sexual innuendo

The governess and sexual innuendo

The man and woman in this victorian tale revolving around children and a mother figure is a complex psychological thriller.

The butler

The butler

The hawks position above the stage, and the quick turn of a slight expression shaded with disgust becomes alarmingly awkward. I was paying close attention to this person with multiple personalities, and the adaptation of the novel shares a glimpse into Henry James characterization.

He comes into this basement lit with a strong fluorescent bulb. Marx in Soho tells the story of a carefully articulated political view. It is interesting to compare Marx to his contemporaries.

His wife encourages Marx to write. His daughter fights him on his views. The drunker he gets the brighter the light on the working class becomes.

Marx, Bakunin, and Peepers

The portrait of social awareness is a beautiful array of characters. Marx for one seems to be a writer more than an activist like his other contemporaries. When he says, "Marx is not a Marxist," I think this is what Weick means.
