Photo Flash: First Look at Glass Half Full Theatre's THE ORCHID FLOTILLA

August 25
7:02 PM 2014

Glass Half Full Theatre's THE ORCHID FLOTILLA runs September 4-20, 2014, playing Thursdays - Saturdays at 8pm and Sundays at 6pm at the Salvage Vanguard Theater. This show returns to Austin after a 2012 run that earned 6 B. Iden Payne and 2 Critic's Table Nominations for Outstanding Original Script, Lead Actress, Sound Design, Set Design, and Puppetry. Scroll down for a first look at the cast in action!

A visual theatre performance about the human capacity to overcome ecological disaster, The Orchid Flotilla is also about the usefulness and uselessness of the manufactured objects we depend upon, and the transformative power of companionship.

The flotilla is a tiny floating island of refuse, upon which a solitary woman scrounges for survival in a not-so-distant future. The orchids she tends for become the metaphor in which she discovers her own capacity for resilience and adaptation, and learns that survival is more than putting one foot in front of the other: true survival lies in imaginative capacity of the mind to care, to nurture, and to connect with something or someone else. Lurking below the water and eventually joining her on the craft are other characters in both human and object form.

Tickets are $12-25, available online. For tickets and more about the production, click here.
