A Rolling Festival of Play
Viva la Resilience!
Viva la Resilience! A Rolling Festival of Play. is Artists Rep’s response to the unknowable year ahead. Business as usual isn’t possible, so we celebrate the power of stories worth sharing by distilling a production to its essence: words and ideas. Several times this fall and winter, a group of artists will gather to work quickly and put together a stripped down, script-in-hand sketch of a production. Actors will make bold choices to enliven their characters, directors will shape and propel the story, designers will use their ingenuity to suggest the world of the play – and you are invited to weave these elements together into an imaginative whole. Six days, start to finish, each play will have three performances before a small live audience and a larger audience taking it in from the comfort of their homes. Some plays will be newly conceived, some time tested, some comic, some not – and all will be plays to connect us to each other, even when we’re far apart. – Viva la Resilience!
