ANNEX CONDUCTS DIVINE MUSICAL EXPERIMENT
Annex Theatre is pleased to present <symphony>, an experimental hybrid of music, theater, and visual design in four movements. Composed/directed by John Osebold (of art-curiosity band "Awesome"), <symphony> will be performed by a 14-member ensemble of musicians and actors at Trinity Parish Church, Seattle's oldest church.
<symphony> embodies the life-cycle of an abstract universe, illustrating its origins (1st movement), the growing complexity of civilization (2nd movement), dissipation of culture and its memories (3rd movement), and the end of everything to pave way for a new universe (4th movement). Told by means of clarinets, typewriters, glockenspiels, pipe organ, handbells, piano, banjo, actors, saxophones, castanets, an aria, and much more, the performers include:
- John Ackermann, Kirk Anderson, Basil Harris, Evan Mosher, David Nixon, and Rob Witmer of "Awesome"
- Kevin Hinshaw and Sari Breznau of Circus Contraption
- Actors Tim Hornor, Tracy Repep, Amber Wolfe, and Gretchen Douma
- Pianist Carl Cutler
- Performing arts guru Mark Nichols
Additionally, <symphony> will feature visual and atmospheric design elements by Sam Anderson (director of Defibrillator Productions' VETALA), and text for the speech-only 3rd movement by Tim Sanders (DELAWARE at Re-bar).
Information for all personnel can be found at www.angelfire.com/band2/bandor0.
<symphony> has been made possible by the generous support of Flintridge Foundation, The Microsoft Corporation, 4Culture, ActiveMac Consulting, and The Seattle Foundation.
Annex Theatre is dedicated to creating bold new work in an environment of improbability, resourcefulness and risk. The Oyster Series is Annex Theatre's developmental series.
Annex Theatre's Artistic Director is Gillian Jorgenson.
