box. & Marrow – a two part theatrical event
January 10-13 – 7:00PM – $15
Whether we like it not, we are consumed by our connections to cardboard boxes. As a child, with the delight of life around every corner, the box is the most amazing gift—not the contents, just the box. As a parent, when the mind and body separate more with each passing year, our possessions (and sometimes our bodies) are stored in boxes for future generations to curse and explore. As we move through life, physically and emotionally, we rely on boxes to move valuables and store the debris we collect. Are we to be summed up solely by the contents of a cardboard box? box. unabashedly demands ransoming our lives from the boxes tucked away under the bed, back of the closet, down in the basement, up in the attic and gives voice to the process, often painful, of moving through our lives.
Marrow tracks the hallucinogenic and feverish mind of a physically traumatized dancer who is struggling to make sense of his horrific brutalization. Previously part of (IM)PULSE, Spectrum Dance produced in Association with Seattle Repertory Theater.
***Box and Marrow will be presented together. Each show runs one hour with a 10 min intermission between the two.***

We’ll tackle everything from dealing with prejudice, censorship, and getting glitter out of your hair. Don’t fret, we won’t just be preaching to the choir. Every show will be continuing on the story of the previous week, and will feature uncensored burlesque and variety performances from local talent.

In George Brant’s Grounded, it’s war – by remote control. After an unexpected pregnancy, an Air Force fighter pilot who once proudly patrolled the Middle Eastern skies has now been reassigned to man a remote-controlled drone from a trailer outside of Las Vegas. Grounded is a fast-paced, deeply raw one-woman play that confronts the psychology of modern warfare when the lines between military and motherhood are blurred.
