FRIDAY NOVEMBER 13, 2009
The 14Karat Cabaret Presents


SCENES PLAY
Written by Theresa Columbus
directed by Theresa Columbus and Joy Davis
“Scenes Play” explores Theresa’s relationship to herself, to seriousness, to performance and to you- dear reader and outside world. Presenting herself as herself directly beseeching the audience, or as several actors- Autumn Breaud, John Bylander, M. Jane Taylor, and Liz Zacharia- divvying up a speech, or as 5 characters doing abstract movement to the tune of Tiffany Defoe’s saxophone playing, or as 2 characters in dialog, her (slightly embarassing) desire to be the story is the basis of each scene. What is behind this desire at times seems to be an urge to impart wisdom, but often is exposed as a longing to explain her longing and every day fascinations, and to make these important. Always challenging the idea of how a performer conveys an idea and how a show can be structured, part of her every day emotion and desire is to break down standards used in performance. Lines between theater and performance art are often crossed, which leans into that wonder in the world: endless possibilities.
