|Revolution In 1
| Open: 10/02/12 Close: 10/23/12
Horse Trade Theater Group will present THEATER IN ASYLUM’s dance theater production of Revolution in 1, written by Katie Palmer in collaboration with Laura Aristovulos, Jake Lasser, Rebekah Levin, Lizzy Palmer, Russell Peck, and Marchelle Thurman. The production will be directed by Co-Artistic Directors Paul H. Bedard and Katie Palmer and will feature Laura Aristovulous, Samantha Keogh, Rebekah Levin, Lizzy Palmer, and Marchelle Thurman with Original Music Composition by Randall Benichak, Lighting Design by Dan Stearns, and Set and Costumes created by the cast.
Revolution in 1 explores the relationship between the two definitions of the word revolution: revolt and revolve. How and why do individuals take a stand? What are the eventual, and potentially inevitable, outcomes of this constant cycle of revolution?
In TIA's signature style of thrilling dance-theater performance, Revolution in 1 will suspend the audience's preconceptions, analyze the origins and myths around revolution, and leave audiences with new-found understanding and empathy. This piece has been in development all of Spring 2012.
About the Company: Theater in Asylum
THEATER IN ASYLUM is a New York-based dance-theater company founded in 2010 by Paul H. Bedard and Katie Palmer to provide asylum to highly-charged subjects and characters. Bedard and Palmer founded TIA simultaneously with the company’s first production, NIJINSKY IN ASYLUM, followed by another mainstage show in 2011, which set Mary Shelley’s classic Frankenstein in conversation with current fears of technology and artificial intelligence. In addition to its mainstages, THEATER IN ASYLUM promotes fellow early-career artists by producing cabaret-style events featuring original work of varying mediums as well as sponsoring its Artists in Residence.
