Upcoming Deep Space Residency at NACL

I am super excited to have received a 2015 Deep Space performance residency at NACL. This will be a week long development phase for The Kioskers where we will for the first time bring together the music composed by Alaina Ferris, the puppets designed by Sara C Walsh, the dances choreographed by KatieRose McLaughlin, all under the direction of Mia Rovegno. This is an all star team of core collaborators who will be working with performer/musicians: Matt Korahais, John Gasper, Jean Grant, Andrew Sheron, and Loren Beri.

Please DONATE what you can to help us go beyond beyond. Our fundraising goal to be able to attend the NACL residency is $5,500. Every dollar helps and any dollar we raise above and beyond our budget will go towards our full production in the Spring 2016.

Check out our dedicated website for updates.

The Kioskers is a sponsored project of Fractured Atlas, a non-profit arts service organization. Contributions for the purposes of The Kioskers must be made payable to Fractured Atlas and are tax-deductible to the extent permitted by law.

 

The Kioskers – Work Samples

Prelude 12 Closing Party October 2012 (10 min)

We utilized many of the elements from previous stagings and turned the piece into a concert. We performed four of the songs from the play in the style of a band. The banter is pulled from the script to provide some context but not to overrun the band style performance with text. This was a special presentation for the Prelude 2012 closing night party. This sample contains two of the songs performed.

Dixon Place Workshop January 2012 (18 min)

We presented the first 40 minutes of the script at a Dixon Place workshop evening series. Gary Winter had asked me to be on the bill with him. This was before Alaina was brought in to compose the music so we made up simple tunes for the songs. We realized we needed a composer after this experiment.

RabbitTales Series May 2012 (20 min)

We did not use the actors this time and experimented with the music Alaina Ferris composed for the songs. The dialogue was performed but in a way of concert theater.
