and
MORE SURPRISE GUESTS TO BE ANNOUNCED!!



THE FREIGHT PARTICIPANTS INCLUDE:

ANNE CECELIA HANLEY
DIRECTOR/ BLUEGRASS MUSICIAN

In collaboration with writer Adam R. Burnett of Buran Theatre, Anne will begin building a large-scale performance project based in the riotous and lonesome mythology surrounding the development and popularization of old-time, bluegrass, and folk music in the United States. Structured as an impressionistic weaving of music, images, and retellings, the project will ease away from a linear narrative, and instead employ live music, drag, sculpture, and paint to create a wild, irreverent, multi-disciplinary cultural collage, rooted in and responding to the traditional music of rural American communities.

LANE GIFFORD
DASH
DANCE/SCULPTURE

Dash is exploring the idea of "real" art vs. "staged" art. Just as a Japanese rock garden is a recreated natural landscape designed to inspire self-awareness through contact with nature, Lane will find ways to interact with the sculptures made by Mark Mennin in a natural location and then transfer that action to the studio for further analysis. The dancers will be photographed and videoed in the natural environment and that media will be integrated into the staged choreography.


MEGAN CATTAU AND CRAIG WHITEHORSE
FLIGHT COLLABORATIVE
AERIAL DANCE/ PUPPETRY

Flight Collaborative will be working on a narrative about the individual and joint journeys of two connected people through the integration of circus and theater arts with shadow puppetry. In their existing work, they focus on the emotional, often telling a story about human connection that is abstract in nature. They value being responsive to each other and the audience in their pieces, hoping to keep these elements of their work intact while moving forward with incorporating the aesthetics of the theater and puppetry in a way that feels honest and intimate.

JON LEVIN, JOSH LUXENBERG, AND JOSH GEIB
A HUNGER ARTIST
THEATER/ PUPPETRY
Using toy theater, a deceptively normal-looking trunk and direct audience address, Sinking Ship Productions presents a solo adaptation of the classic story, "A Hunger Artist" by Franz Kafka. The haggard Impresario, dragging a worn-out steamer trunk onto the stage, invites the audience back to the time of the Hunger Artist. Using a record player and toy theater, he re-creates in miniature the spectacle and fanfare surrounding the aloof "artist," whose "act consisted of publicly fasting for long periods of time. Once world famous, he becomes increasingly marginalized by society until finally he is completely forgotten.


JAMES DANIEL AND EVAN TWOHY
THIS ONES FOR YOU
FILM/THEATER
Evan Twohy and James Matthew Daniel, writer/director team, are working to adapt Twohy's stageplay This One's for You into a screenplay. The play consists of a single continuous conversation between two siblings, Maddie and Jonathan, who find they have strikingly different memories of their childhoods. While Maddie believes she was abused by her parents in her formative years, Jonathan remembers a happy coming-of-age. Has Jonathan blocked the bad years from his memory, or has Maddie unfairly vilified her parents? Or does the truth lie somewhere in between? On the day of an impending meteor shower, the two siblings meet in Maddie's crappy New York apartment to figure out what the future holds for two people who can't agree on their pasts.
