paper chairs invites you to Inklings, the final night of performances in "Reckonnoiter," a series dedicated to developing new work.
Using the fall as a time to incubate and explore with a variety of generative practices, paper chairs has created a series of three unique showings: a new ten-minute play, a site-specific experience beneath the Lamar Bridge on Lady Bird Lake, and a night of devised pieces directed by the company.
We aim to take risks in new territories while bringing Austin three diverse performances. By showing works in progress, we invite our audiences to participate in our creative process and help us unearth untapped possibilities.

Traci and Chris have no business loving one another. But that's what happening, despite that their illicit affair is doomed. Come help us explore how self-help therapy feeds self-aggression and gives people license to do terrible things. Join us for this new 10-minute play and stay for a salon style conversation.

Meet at the Town Lake YMCA (at the bleachers across from the entrance)

Directed by: Elizabeth Doss
A 100-year flood happens once every hundred years and has a one percent chance of happening once in any given year. Acts of fate of this magnitude bring shock, alarm, surprise, joy, and grief -in short, an avalanche of human responses. This performance will investigate events in life that are the equivalents of the hundred-year flood as experienced by individuals and collectively by communities, and it will piece together a survival guide to the once-in-a-lifetime events that permanently alter our lives.
