From a play on risers in the round to experiencing a dance seated on the stage floor to inviting audience into a motel room, Wild Punch creates changing performance spaces within the Papermill Theater. Between each piece, the audience enters through a new door into a previously unseen area, and a new performance.
Wild Punch features: dancer-choreographer Annie Wilson's dance graceful frsutrated expletive, a solo about her personal evolution as a dancer that involves a hilarious and touching first person narrative, dance, and an anything goes approach; Josh McIlvain's play Waiting For The Boss, a comedic drama about maintaining your sense of worth as you grow older in menial, underpaid labor, and the intimate personal revelations between coworkers who care nothing for each other; and John Rosenberg's play Automated Fault Isolation, a dark romance set in 1950s Arkansas about a high school girl and a soldier waiting to murder a black teenager she has lured to a motel room.
Wild Punch is being presented at the Papermill Theater, a part of the Papermill Arts Collective, a five-story warehouse featuring artist workspace, an art gallery, and a 50-seat theater. The Papermill is dedicated to providing a low-cost space for artists to work and display their efforts. Hella Fresh Theater is the resident company of the Papermill Theater.See More
