Using Richard Brautigan’s novella I​n Watermelon Sugar​ as a guide and the lens through which material is developed, director/choreographer Steven Reker (People Get Ready) collaborates with Ryan Seaton (Callers), Matt Evans (Tigue), and Eliot Krimsky (Glass Ghost) to form the band Open House to premiere an evening of songs, compositions and performance work. With shared musical influences that range from Suicide and Wire to composers like Meredith Monk, the group creates compellingly strange pop songs that sprawl out into sonic landscapes. I​n the spirit of Brautigan’s deceptive simplicity, the heart of the performance emerges from layered interactions of uncomplicated, repetitive elements. Through sound, light and movement, Open House conjures and reworks the poetically dense world that Brautigan created in his 1968 book and creates a space for a “collective imagination” during the performance.

June 25–27, 8pm
Tickets $15
