MAY, 2014

magellanica

Conceived as a five-part play, which would be performed over two evenings or one long day, Magellanica: A New and Accurate Map of the World takes us literally to farthest corner of the planet, Antarctica, for a battle over the ozone hole that is or is not forming there and who just might be to blame. An international group of scientists and researchers take up residence at an American research station for a long, cold, desolate winter filled with discovery and wonder.

the gun show

The Gun Show is a piece that jumps right into the middle of the gun control issue. Falling not right or left but investigating a different area of the argument: the personal. EM Lewis, Darin Anthony, Matthew Quinlan, and Chuma Gault spent a week re-working and developing new material for an exclusive Los Angeles performance.
