An ensemble created play
Led by Nicole Devereaux* and Derek Lee Miller*, and directed by Lisa Moreira*.
Featuring 2010 Ivey Award Winner Kate Guentzel as Giselle, Ryan Hill* as Allen Ginsberg, and Derek Lee Miller* as Jack Kerouac.
Sandbox Theatre brings its highly stylized brand of movement-based storytelling to the uneasy, shifting America of the 1950s with Beatnik Giselle. Intersecting worlds of the Beats and the classic romantic ballet Giselle will dance and clash through issues of gender, sexuality, race and entitlement. A powerful, provocative piece, Beatnik Giselle features live music, dance, and Sandbox's signature transformative set design, guaranteeing a Southern Theater like you've never seen.
Along with Guentzel, Hill and Miller, Beatnik Giselle is created and performed by Katie Bradley, Nicole Devereaux*, Erika Hansen, Derek Meyer, Heather Stone*, and a trio of talented Twin Cities newcomers, Evelyn Digirolamo, Theo Langason, and Zainab Musa. Live music conceived by designer Tim Donahue, and created and performed by Greg Schutte, and Jacqueline Ultan.
Beatnik Giselle is currently in its creation process, and is proving to be Sandbox's most provocative production to date. Gritty, stark and heavy; Beatnik Giselle is sizzling with sex, drug use and the raw language of the Beats. This show is intended for mature audiences.Project Leads: Nicole Devereaux* & Derek Lee Miller*
