Barefoot in Black -- The Queen's Mad Room
Barefoot in Black is Back!
There You Go Again Productions is thrilled to return this spring with another rendition of last year's wildly successful Barefoot in Black poetry event! And, for the first time, we offer this performance on two nights instead of just one.
Allow us to pamper you with wine, ambience fit for a queen, and enlivening conversation. We'll treat you to an evening unlike any other in a unique setting that's part dramatic performance, part bohemian lounge. In our signature style, this piece is woven together with music, movement, and poetry spanning centuries.
"There was a room in the palace where the Queens went when they were angry or upset."
This passage, adapted from the ancient Indian epic The Ramayana, provides the inspiration for this year's theme.
A queen. A barren room. Her madness. It's an image at once supremely romantic and devastatingly raw.
Maybe you've been to your own version of this queen's room, or you've thought about going.
Is this a space of freedom and release, or lonely confinement? Does this room exist in a physical place, or in your mind? Will you find clarity there, or darkness? And of course, who will you allow to enter? And what would you say to them if you could?
A topic as timeless as it is timely, an emotion as personal as it is universal. Engage with us in exploring these questions through centuries of poetry conveying love, anger, humor, empathy and beauty. We invite you to throw on some black togs, slip off your shoes, and join with us as we take you on a journey into, and out of, The Queen's Mad Room.
Choose from two nights and three different ticket prices to best suit your needs.
A portion of the proceeds will go towards The Art of Yoga Project www.theartofyogaproject.org
