Philadelphia Shakespeare Theatre's upcoming rep productions of Twelfth Night and Macbeth couldn't be more different, but I am delighted to be doing movement work with their versatile casts. Twelfth Night promises some delightful polkas and dreamy seaside tableaus. On the bloodier front, I've been working closely with the remarkable Julia Ray, Elise Hudson, and Sarah Stryker to create a specific physical vocabulary for their ancient magicks.
Next month, audiences will join us in the beautifully preserved drawing rooms of the impeccably preserved Physick House, built in 1786, for Laurel Tree's production of Hedda Gabler. Until then, click here to explore the rooms and gardens of this remarkable estate.
Production meetings are beginning for Simpatico's collaboration with Drexel University to bring Richard Adams’ classic Watership Down to the stage. As movement director I will be working with director Allen Radway to help the actors create a physical life that endows these characters with the gorgeous anthropomorphic qualities that Adams captures in the novel. In service of that aim, here is a ridiculous youtube video of two rabbits fighting, set to heavy metal music. Enjoy!
There are few things that would make an indoorsy lady like myself want to spend the summer in the middle of an 80-acre field, but a killer creative team is one of them.
