Fortune: The Complete Works
You are invited to attend a gathering. Whether or not you attend, is a choice. This choice will lead you to a website, down a road, into a theater. Others will be there who have made the same choice. Is it a coincidence that you are there together? Or was it written in the stars, on your hand, in the grounds of coffee at the bottom of your travel mug?
Fortune: The Complete Works, is the final chapter in a season-long exploration into fortune in all its varied meanings, devices and kitschy incarnations. It features 3 original performances combined with a pre-show playground of audience-interactive weirdness.
Join Ragged Wing Ensemble for an evening of prophesy, oracle, divination, and innovative performance. Be prepared to put your heart on the line, converse with Lady Luck, and challenge fortune to a duel. If you play your cards right, you could win BIG.
"A Fool's Errand" directed by core artist David Stein, tracks The Fool's journey through Doubt, Shame and Desire.
"Atomic Intuition", written and directed by core artist Cecilia Palmtag, is an archetypal quest designed to delight and disorient. Challenging the dichotomy of the material
and psychic worlds, we ask "is the fabric of Mystery woven with electrons and protons?"
"Maybe Baby", written and directed by Artistic Director Amy Sass, uses nursery rhyme, quantum theory and teapots to explore the relationship between choice, chance and children.
"No Outlet", a short film by Matt Jacobs and Amy Sass follows one man's attachment to being 'The Winner' and his addiction to 'playing the game'.
