Rachel Rosenthal Company`s Instant Fairy Tales
Date: January 25, 2014
The latest offering in the legendary Rachel Rosenthal`s remarkable career, the `Instant Fairy Tales` series marries Rosenthal`s Instant Theatre concept with the enchantment of the fairy tale tradition. `Instant Fairy Tales: The Longest Winter,` the inaugural offering, features an allegorical tale about learning to care for the environment. Performances will feature Rachel Rosenthal Company`s TOHUBOHU! Extreme Theatre Ensemble, which includes visual artists, dancers, storytellers, a martial artist, sculptors, and an award-winning cake designer who will supply a cupcake for every child after the `Instant Fairy Tales` performance. Amy Knoles, of the acclaimed electro acoustic chamber ensemble the California EAR Unit, will perform live music. `Instant Fairy Tales` are particularly well suited for children and families (ages 3 and up).
Rosenthal`s performance aesthetic integrates movement, voice, choreography, improvisation, costuming, music, lighting, and sets into seismic experiences. This first installment of `Instant Fairy Tales` features costumes and sets inspired by `ukiyo-e` woodcuts of Hokusai and Hiroshige, which depict the Japanese `floating world` of the theatre, restaurants, teahouses, geisha, and the natural world. Tickets cost $5. Reservations are necessary to secure seats. Street parking is available.
Times: Saturday, January 25, 2014 shows are at 4:00pm and 7:00pm. Sunday, January 26, 2014 performances are at 2:00pm and 5:00 pm.
