School Play – Terry Brennan

On today’s podcast, if only we all could bring to our everyday lives the energy that Terry Brennan brings to the stage. We seem to meet annually about a production and it’s always a brutal summer-like day. Terry brings to the stage his former and inner-fourth grader who is just too much for the room. Using parkour, circus arts and a high-energy soundtrack, School Play is what figit spinners were made for. Part of the 2017 SoLow Festival. Stay Tuned!

 

 

 

 

 

ABOUT SCHOOL PLAY

School Play is a hilarious and heartbreaking adventure set in the American educational system featuring an eager student battling his inability to sit still, his need to ask “silly questions” and his love for “non-academic” subjects. Terry Brennan whose “performance can only be described as a bolt of lightning,” uses comedy, acrobatics and hand-balancing to tell a silly and heartwarming story of a kid who desperately wants to do well in school despite a barrage of negative reinforcement.

Rebroadcast: A User’s Manual

On today’s podcast, we connect with Thomas Choinacky to talk about a new work titled “A User’s Manual”. At the time of the interview, Thomas was on location at Washington College in Maryland with Applied Mechanics doing a residency of their FringeArts production of FEED.

ABOUT A USER’S MANUAL

A USER’S MANUAL is a performance designed in response to how the body is constantly manipulated by architecture. Drawing attention to structures, sounds, textures, and history of space, each performance catalogues the memory of site. This dance maps the imagined histories discovered through the cracks, smells, scars, and growths in the given moment.

This is cataloguing of architecture and space
This is a responsive movement score
This is interdisciplinary

A USER’S MANUAL makes visible how humans are constantly affected by the surroundings we pass through and by the architectures we build.

Chris Davis: One-Man Apocalypse Now

On today’s podcast, we ring in the new year with the return of Chris Davis, one of the hardest working solo-performance artists in town with a re-mounting of the Fringe Arts production of “One-Man Apocalypse Now”.

Chris Davis re-imagines the iconic film Apocalypse Now in a hilarious and dark 60-minute adaptation. Imagine Apocalypse Now performed by one-actor, in 60 minutes, recreating some of the most famous scenes from cinema history through Chris Davis’ unique theatrical lens. Backed by the soundtrack of the movie, Davis explores the heart of ‘darkness’ through movement, sound, dance, comedy, drama, lunacy, philosophy, and more in this high-octane 60-minute tour-de-force, directed by Mary Tuomanen and sound design by Adriano Shaplin.
