Add to Calendar 19-08-2011 28-08-2011 15 'Home' "Home" (world premiere) conceived and directed by Garrett Blair and Rachel Karp, created by the Ensemble, produced by Sara Bashor. Cabaret Theater - Friday, August 19 at 9:00PM; Saturday, August 20 at 5:00PM; Friday, August 26 at 9:00PM; Saturday, August 27 at 7:00PM; Sunday, August 28 at 5:00PM. Running Time: 45-60 minutes | Tickets: $15. What causes people to exist outside the status quo? What happens to make their daily routines a series of unconventional, outrageous behaviors? "Home" explores remarkable eccentrics from early 20th-century New York. The audience is immersed in the lives of a myriad of eclectic characters who struggle to survive in ways many of us will never experience. While enveloped in their worlds, we discover a select few who live even further beyond the realm of normal. We witness the search for the same connections we all strive to obtain, in places we have all been or passed by, we cannot ignore how-- across time and class-- we might all be intricately connected simply because we share the City of New York. Garrett Blair is a recent graduate of Columbia University where he studied directing, focusing on the process of creating ensemble based devised work. His devised thesis piece, "Catacombs & Hurricannoes¸" led to a new form of movement based ensemble communication. He is a freelance teaching artist, teaching theatre and creating original work with students across the city from pre-school to high school. He was the resident director for six seasons at the Lexington Youth Summer Theater in Boston, MA. He recently assisted Mikhael Tara Garver, working on such projects as "Choice" (Culture Project's Women in Directing Festival), "Renovations" (White Plains Performing Arts Center), and "Fornicated from the Beatles "(world premiere at the A.R.T.'s Emerging America Festival, New York premiere at Glasslands Gallery). Rachel Karp is a New York-based director committed to the collaborative creation of new work. She has developed new work at Columbia University, from which she received her B.A. magna cum laude in Drama and Theatre Arts, and at Powerhouse Theater Festival, where she served as a Directing Apprentice. She has assisted the creation of new works by experimental theater artists Young Jean Lee ("Untitled Feminist Multimedia Technology Show," "We're Gonna Die"), Aaron Landsman and Mallory Catlett ("City Council Meeting," HERE), and Kristi Spessard ("Essentials of Flor," Mabou Mines), among others. Upcoming projects include directing "Band Practice" through Incubator Arts Projects' Short Form Series and assistant directing Pearl Damour's "How to Build a Forest." www.rachelkarp.com http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=88626 Theater for the New City true DD/MM/YYYY
