THEA 4290 is presenting The Ashley Plays this Saturday, February 5, 2011.
Meeting at 12:45PM, February 5 2011, in the CFT, in front of the Joseph G. Green Studio Theatre.
The Ashley Plays is a cycle of short, devised site-specific performances. Each cycle begins with the participants collaboratively delineating a profile of a non-gender specific character named Ashley. Ashley must be the focus of the work, but need not be a character who appears. Each “play” is created at an assigned o…r chosen site: for this cycle, every site is within York University’s Centre for Film and Theatre. In performance, the monodramas are viewed by moving pods of spectators.
Each of the monodramas happens on the same date: in the play world, it is February 5, 2010 (reminder: the actual event is February 5, 2011). There is no linear narrative, but simply a common character that each playwright interacts with in their own unique and inspired way.
Conceived of and directed by Judith Rudakoff
Featuring mono-dramas by:
Nicole De Angelis
Judith Rudakoff, Hilary Sherman & Derek Gingrich
