 VIOLET ENLIGHTENS: A RADIO DRAMA IN 3 ACTS

 
Written by Rafael Oses. Directed by Brian Jennings

Part-creation myth and part-love story, Violet Enlightens: A Radio Drama in 3 Acts plays with the traditional expectations of the theatre audience. It is a tale told by an unreliable clock, in frame-by-frame, stop-action fashion, about the marriage of a violet to Old King Cole, though Violet has no recollection of the supposed event. With a supporting cast featuring Canada, The Alamo and a queen bee, this unique performance piece offers a multifaceted collaboration between poetry, music, projected imagery and movement to explore memory, narrative and imagination, and how we know the things we think we know.

SIX CHAMBERS

An original, site specific theatrical event,
devised and directed by Michael Nowicki

 
Beneath the Blue Onion Dome, Hartford's most famous landmark, sits the former Colt Firearms Manufacturing Company factory. Join us for a theatrical event inside of this old factory tracing the stories of the people that have toiled and triumphed on this land for the last 400 years. From the time when Great Meadow was the sacred grounds of the Pequot, through the factory's development by Colonel Samuel Colt and to its present state, this important story of Hartford is told through interactive and immersive theater.
