Above & Below:
a collaborative experience in words, image, and sounds by W. A. Brenner, Roy Moore, Content Love Knowles, and Emily Breedlove. This round robin of inspiration began with a conversation, continued as a poem, exploded in form and color, and then sang forth in harmony, movement, meaning. The piece is the culmination of a process of collaborative witnessing. The artist, inspired, creates. The creation inspires another artist, whose emotional and symbolic response takes another artistic form. In the performance space, while the images are projected onto the walls, the words are expressed in music by singer and instrumentalist.
On the Other Side,
by Aubrey Hicks. On the Other Side
is about a woman learning to love and open her heart again after a tragedy ends her last relationship. Life is all about second chances, but on the other side someone may not get the chance to write another love-letter to his beloved. This play is about love, sacrifice, companionship, and hope. In the end, on the other side life won’t be a grim experience, rather it will be a beautiful journey towards joy by holding the hand of that special someone.
