DIF Show: Saturday, October 5, 10:00 PM: LOL Theater
Join us at LOL Theater for performances by Ghost of Love, Unmusical Chairs, & Rook!
Ghost of Love:
The Ensemble Project is a special show assembled by guest director, Laura Doorneweerd-Perry from Amsterdam, and made up of local performers from Austin. The concept is called Ghost of Love: A show of multiple love stories: young, old, passionate, bored, budding, recovering, familiar and unusual.
Romantic relationships are filled with words and actions- but maybe even more with what is not said, what is not heard, and what is not expressed. Which secrets do we hold from each other? What big emotions are we afraid to show? Where does our mind wander to?
Further proof that improvisation is a shared language, every show Gretchen Wirges takes on a new partner. Using only physical proximity to inspire the scene, what results is honest, organic and all about being in constant state of relationship to whomever happens to be in the chair next to her. Or behind her. Or, you get the idea.
Rook is a modern musical improv troupe from Austin, Texas. Using a unique blend of synth and piano, drama and comedy, improvisation and theatrical training, Rook presents the cutting edge of musical improv. Discovered on the spot, emotional and poignant, hilarious and cerebral, this off-off-off-broadway show will be surprising, delightful, and oh-so-well sung. With award winning actress Sarah Marie Curry, improviser extraordinaire Cat Drago, classically trained opera singer Megan Sherrod, and composer and pianist Walter Nichols, Rook is good because of training and amazing because of improv.
The performance is Saturday, October 4, 10:00 PM. The venue is LOL Theater at 3851 N Lincoln Ave.
