LIGHTHOUSE TRIPTYCH to Play The Brick as Part of Sound Scape Festival, 6/8-26
The Brick Theater, Inc., in association with Stephanie Lane, presents Lighthouse Triptych as part of Sound Scape, a festival of theatrical sound design, running June 8 at 5 p.m., June 9 at 6 p.m., June 13 at 7 p.m., June 16 at 8 p.m. and June 26 at 9 p.m.
Lighthouse Triptych is a dance-music-theater performance inspired by Virginia Woolf's novel, To the Lighthouse. Interweaving choreography, text, music, and sound in three stylistically distinct acts, the show addresses the passage of time and our perceptions of chaos versus control.
