Production Description

Casting “The Disastrous Tale of Vera & Linus,” written by Jesse Ball and Thordis Bjornsdottir. Producer states: “Escape the city! Run to the woods of Salem Art Works with us, a magical place where creative fantasies come true. Join five fellow experimenters to bring this beautifully delirious story to life. We shall design in collaboration, an experiment in group authorship, fully incorporating the skills and backgrounds of each in our troupe of six. This work will be incubated in the spirit of the 1975 Suginami reality experiment KNOCK. Residency will be a two week process designed to create a site-responsive theatrical event with NYC productions to follow.”

Rehearsal and Production Dates & Locations

Residency and Collaboration will be held July 21- August 4 in Salem. Premiere performance will be held July 28 at Salem Art Works in Salem, NY. NYC performance run begins Sept. 1 with a projected three month performance schedule.

Compensation & Union Contract Details

Transportation, food, and campgrounds will be provided while at Salem Art Works. Box office earnings (Salem and NYC performances) will be split between Kipuka Theater and all collaborators.
