To push our O’Neill exploration forward with a bang, our 2016 Lab program presents a radical new approach to THE ICEMAN COMETH, with four diverse theater artists each tackling a separate act of the play. This fresh take on O’Neill’s classic will allow audiences to see each act as a separate experiment, all four together as a unified whole, or both. Lead Artists include Julia Sirna-Frest (actor / director), Katie Rose McLaughlin (choreographer), Yuris Skujins (actor), and Jeanette Yew (lighting/projection designer, director, puppeteer).
ACT I | June 2, 4, & 17
Lead Artist: Julia Sirna-Frest
Shane Chapman and Julia Sirna-Frest present a song cycle that meanders through disCHORDant changes and sing to the sweet oblivion that is life as a listless drunken human. The White Stripes, Eugene O’neal and Funkadelic walk into a bar and drink and sing themselves in to an obliterated raucous life affirming musical explosive stupor. A song cycle with a shot of the real.
