The Winter Modern: "Dead Man's Cell Phone" by Sarah Ruhl
PLEASE NOTE: JANUARY 21ST AT 8PM IS AT LINK AND PIN ART GALLERY. JANUARY 22ND AT 2PM IS ALSO AT LINK AND PIN ART GALLERY. ALL FOLLOWING PERFORMANCES ARE AT SPRINGDALE STATION. En Route Productions joyfully presents "Dead Mans Cell Phone, a dark-edged romantic comedy by Sarah Ruhl this January at Link and Pin Art Gallery (2235 E. 6th St. #102) and Springdale Station (979 Springdale Rd) for En Route's inaugural event, The Winter Modern, which places moving, theatrical art in gallery spaces throughout Austin. The Winter Modern is a beautiful combination of installation and theatrical art, which Ruhls intelligent, absurd, comedy lends itself to perfectly.
The Winter Modern opens January 7th and 8th at 8pm at the lovely, very intimate Link and Pin Art Gallery. In this space, we will exhibit local artists, Sarah Presson, Stephen Pruitt, Nick Schnitzer, on the walls surrounding the intimate performance. The set, by Ia Enstera, will be minimal and every word tangible. This unique, intimate opportunity seats 25 guests. There will be an artist talk (with visual artists and performance artists) and an Opening Reception on the 8th from 5-7pm before the show. On January 15th and 22nd, we will have two, intimate, Manhattan Matinees at 2pm at Link and Pin as well, and the art will be hung in the space until the 23rd. Hot Steeping Room Tea, Live Oak Beer, and wine will be available for free during reception and for donation during the event.
From January 12th-15th, 19th-20th, and the 26th-29th at 8pm, we will be exhibiting our dark, absurd theatrical installation at the lovely Springdale Station, which allows for a different, unique Austin experience. The production design, created by Ia Enstera, Stephen Pruitt, Meason Wiley, Jason Farmer, and Taylor Harrison will be the art installation in this old, train station, which seats 100 guests. There will be a donation bar with Hot Tea from The Steeping Room, Live Oak beer, and Whiskey, and plenty of parking.
Please join En Route at one or both of these unique spaces in Austin and get your ART on!
