An Immersive Avant-Garde Mask Theatre Experience with The Velvet Noose
By The Velvet Noose
Directed by Harold Taddy (in pursuit of peace)
Fri, May 1- 7:30 pm
"A mythic sharing of celebration & PEACE through a visceral parade of open hearted pantomime & expressive arts"
May Day 2020: Whisper old bull, into the heart of darkness… Rise up! Bathe in the new light of spring! May we inspire threads of hope, together through the blanket of suffering we share in this human condition. In collaboration with Steven Sherrill, MINOTAUR! is an immersive spectacle, re-telling the tale through the eyes of the storied mongrel; in a new piece where the avant-garde marries mask work with physical dance theatre, sound bath arts, and poetic vocalization.
“The architecture of the Minotaur’s heart is ancient. Rough hewn and many chambered, his heart is a plodding laborious thing, built for churning through the millennia. But the blood it pumps—the blood it has pumped for five thousand years, the blood it will pump for the rest of his life—is nearly human blood. It carries with it, through his monster’s veins, the weighty, necessary, terrible stuff of human existence: fear, wonder, hope, wickedness, love. But in the Minotaur’s world it is far easier to kill and devour seven virgins year after year, their rattling bones rising at his feet like a sea of cracked ice, than to accept tenderness and return it.” ― Steven Sherrill, The Minotaur Takes a Cigarette Break
