Sitelines Action I: Dirge for a Cup


Saturday, August 10 @ 11 am
South First Street and Barton Springs Road -- Roving
In partnership with Love & Monsters Puppet Co.

“Sitelines” is a series of short, site-specific, free and public performances devised and developed as an ensemble based on suggestions we solicit from the public. Each Sitelines performance will be roughly 15-30 minutes long, with two-week incubation/rehearsal periods for each. The core ensemble for each piece will be the Generic Ensemble Company, alongside guest performers. We go to the audience, rather than waiting for the audience to come to us. The public is notified of the site and theme less than 48 hours in advance.

Action I: DIRGE FOR A CUP meditates on the text "When I am empty, please dispose of me properly."

Clergy--kt shorb
