Triskelion Arts is pleased to present Action Theater’s Present Company this October in the Muriel Schulman Theater. Working for over 25 years within landscapes of improvisation, the company (John Burt, Lorraine Grosslight, Heather Harpham, Eric Huther, Carolyn Shakti Sadeh, Cassie Tunick, Trisha Zembruski) joins a deeply physicalized imagination to a spare ensemble mind. These open working sessions lay bare both the mechanics and magic of truly physical improvisation, and how we conjure ourselves awake. The company creates worlds that speak from inside dream, grounded by humor and humanity, precisely articulated through speech, sound, and movement.
ABOUT THE ARTISTS
Members of the company formed their first connections through the physical/verbal/vocal language of Action Theater in workshops taught by master improvisor Ruth Zaporah in the early 1990s. Since that time, they have worked both in various ensembles exploring improvisation and crafting set works, and also as individuals making solo theater pieces and collaboratively contributing skills collected across the broader art worlds. Regular meetings in a barn in Vermont began in Spring 2014, exploring ensemble improvisation entered through a different doorway, one built from silent agreements and spaciousness. Now they meet and perform quadrennially as an ensemble. Areas of influence include Authentic Movement, Poetics, Contact Improvisation, Clowning, Butoh, Eprime, Musical Theater, and the visual arts. Most members are certified teachers of Action Theater. www.cassietunick.com
