The Aisling (Story Telling)

Written and Performed by Cecilia Farran. Directed by Steven Wasson and Corinne Soum. There is an ancient myth telling of Sophia, the prime creator, dreaming the universe into being Cecilia’s expressive voice extols the beauty of that dream, and paints a wordscape reminder: we are the dreamers, we are the dream.

August: Saturday 26 (4.30pm and 7pm), Sunday 27 (2.30pm) Bluebeard Through the Looking-Glass Darkly Created and Directed by Steven Wasson and Corinne Soum. Performed by Kanopy Dance Company, directors Lisa Thurrell and Robert Cleary. Like all fairy tales, Blue Beard is an expression of the collective unconscious, and offers a possible understanding of universal patterns in the human psyche. It depicts the dance and the dynamics between the two grand archetypal forces, the masculine and the feminine. Using all the resources of modern movement theatre, Wasson and Soum are inventing for Kanopy Dance Company a voyage, punctuated by humor and derision, through the labyrinth of Bluebeard’s mind.
September: Saturday 2 (7pm), Saturday 16 (7pm), Saturday 23 (7pm) The Penelope Complex Parts 1 and 2 Written and directed by Steven Wasson. This film was shot over a period of five years in the London Studio of the Theatre de l’Ange fou, and on location throughout England, France, Japan and Wisconsin. The Penelope Complex is part of The Theatre de l’Ange Fou’s exploration of mythological themes. The film uses the resources offered by movement theatre with a cast of 25 actors trained by the Theatre de l’Ange Fou. The adventures of Ulysses are transposed into the confines of “The House of Ithaca Asylum for the Mythologically Deranged” under the care of the mysterious Doctor Ahriman. The different landscapes are the many beds of the asylum, inmates and the asylum personnel personify the gods and the demons, and the sea is an ocean of yesterday’s newspaper. This surrealistic choreography, with a colorful soundscape, looks to be performed by long forgotten characters of the silent screen.
Fri. July 28 & Sat. July 29 — 7:00pm White Church Theatre Project Presentation of the summer session creative work

 

   
 
Memory of Dust by Theatre de l’Ange Fou    
 
Presented as part of Physical Festival Chicago. Directed by Steven Wasson, performed by Corinne Soum and Steven Wasson. One of the latest duets of the Theatre de l’Ange Fou, "Memory of Dust" is a modernist fable on the enduring connection of two souls. Inspired by the French writer Robert Desnos, letters, papers, poems, the surrealist movement in Paris, and the Second World War, weave a timeless map on which a poet and his muse invent their destiny. "Memory of Dust" is a voyage evoking the tragic and absurd moments of life in a dream like atmosphere performance punctuated by humour and derision, a portrait of the "unknown familiar." A unique modern movement theatre experience.
