ANTIHERO, presented by The Tribe of Fools, 75 minutes. 

A comedy about how seriously we take superheroes and how we often default to violence as a way to solve problems. We use parkour and close-quarters stage combat as a way to have fun with unrealistic fight scenes in superhero video games and movies. Eventually the piece turns somber as we investigate the real effects that violence has on conflict.

IT GIRL, presented by Amanda Schoonover, Brenna Geffers and Anthony Crosby... 50 minutes

IT GIRL splays open our obsession with the Next Big Thing when it comes to women in the entertainment industry. Looking through the lens of the original “It Girl” Clara Bow and her tumultuous raise and fall in the Silent Film Industry, this original piece becomes the actress’ nightmare for contemporary women. A fantasia of silent film, clown, tap, ballroom, boxing, vintage gags, and innovative storytelling, IT GIRL pits an actress in a dance to the death against ShowBiz to find out if anyone can really have It all?

THE BACCHAE, by The Phenomenal Animals...75 minutes.

The cult of Dionysus, a frenzied group of women on the fringes of Greek society spend their days dancing, drinking, and challenging the powers that be. So when Pentheus, King of Thebes, refuses to acknowledge their leader as a god they wreak havoc on the city. In an act of revenge the cult, known as the Bacchae, invokes the god and a crazed ritual of blood, sex, and revelry ensues. The Bacchae invite audiences to participate in their rite. To see, touch, and feel the action. They are the newest initiates.In The Bacchae, The Phenomenal Animals create an immersive live experience that satisfies extensive exploration of how we share stories, spiritualism, and ritual while feeding into the satisfaction of completing a collective action as a community that come together for a brief time. Audiences are drawn into the storytelling in a series of active and passive participations throughout the show in order to complete the rites of the Bacchae. The ensemble, alongside the audience, is faced with issues of changes in culture, environment, and politics. It is easiest to resist change, but it is rewarding to embrace it.
