RAPT Work in Progress Showing
@Perishable Theatre
Providence, RI

03/03/2011 @ 7:30 pm
Cost: $5
Category: Theater
Contact: 401-331-2695 x 101

Upholding Perishable Theatre’s mission to connect RI audiences with innovative performance, the Resident Artists at Perishable Theatre will present 6 works in progress during the first weekend in March. The works run the gamut from theatrical adaptation of a canonical novel (Madame Bovary) to opera cut with new media (The Legend of the Fairy Melusine) to post-modern cabaret (The Lulu Cabaret.) The weekend is anchored by Leigh Hendrix’s solo performance, How To Be A Lesbian in 10 Days or Less, which takes the form of a motivational speech to humorous ends.

The Resident Artists at Perishable Theatre (RAPT) program support mid-career theatre artists developing hybrid performance pieces over 1-3 years. Recent RAPT shows have traveled to Austin’s Frontera Fest (The Thing That Ate My Brain.Almost,) and have won the prestigious Best of the San Francisco Fringe Festival (Poste Restante). Support for the RAPT program has come from the RI Foundation, RI State Council on the Arts, and VSA Arts RI.

With How To Be A Lesbian in 10 Days or Less, motivational speaker Butchy McDyke will transform you into the queer of your dreams. Writer and performer Leigh Hendrix links different characters, personal story, and a Reba McEntire song in a mostly funny and sometimes earnest exploration of how you can learn to confidently shout, “I’m a big ‘ol dyke!” (Thursday through Sunday)

Come check out Elise Morrison in another installation of The Lulu Cabaret:  Wedekind’s infamous seductress has taken up residence in Purgatory as the lead singer of “Lulu and the Rippers,” featuring the devilishly talented Kirsten Volness and Jacob Richman.   There’s a hot seat with your name on it for an evening that will bring you closer to Heaven by giving you the best of Hell! (Thursday)

Phil Goldman (he of Live Bait and failed male stripping fame) is back with more stories of mayhem, derring-do and crackers. This time he’ll take you deep into the heart of the Sumatran jungle, with a side trip into his heretofore untested theory of “Continental Tapering. (Thursday/Sunday)

Writer Rick Massimo’s adaptation of Gustave Flaubert’s novel Madame Bovary uses the hip-hop method of sampling to deliver a fresh look at a hotly debated story. (Friday/Saturday)

Vanessa Gilbert (with Steven Lee Jobe) – Architectural Aria from The Legend of the Fairy Melusine. Early music meets 21st century media in this excerpt from Jobe’s new opera about a man who meets the woman of his dreams, just to find out that she harbors a terrible metamorphic secret. (Friday/Saturday)

Fluxus artist Tom Hurdle’s Mortal Sins combines the feeling of an H.P. Lovecraft story and an Ingmar Bergman film to tell the story of deadly love. (Saturday/Sunday)

RHD-RI Presents “Obsessed” at The Second Sight Gallery
February 14 – April 1
Artist Reception on February 18th from 6pm-8pm

Resources for Human Development – RI

Second Sight Gallery
413 Central ave.
Pawtucket, RI 02861

RHD-RI will be starting 2011 with a group show featuring the work of 10 of our most “obsessive” artists.

RHD-RI (Resources for Human Development – RI) is a non-profit, arts-based day program that provides services and art instruction to adults with disabilities. We aim to enhance the lives of these adults through freedom and creative expression. The art comes in a variety of mediums, from paintings and drawings, sculpture and ceramics, to rock bands and videos, zines and comics.

“Obsessed” is a group show featuring 10 artists that currently attend RHD-RI. The artists featured in this show all work within very narrow parameters, in terms of their subject matter and visual content. These artists all repeat various themes, patterns, colors, textures, shapes, numbers, letters and lines, building up great bodies of work that show an obsession with their personal subject matter. We will be filling the walls of our gallery with an overwhelming amount of artworks by this select group of people.

Artists in this show:
Roland Berthelette
Cara Boyajian
Eliseu Defaria
Jose Diaz
Brittany Fernandes
Kenny Fiorentino
Tammy Horiagon
Lisa Moonan
Jarred Salisbury
Manny Tavares

An Artist Reception will be held on Friday, February 18th from 6pm-8pm at the Second Sight Gallery, which is located in the RHD-RI studio building.
