HASAMELIS Begins This Weekend in Tempe
Hasamelis, a new play created by collaborators Colton Robertson and Tess Hernandez, opens this Friday, March 27th at 8pm in Tempe, Ariz. and runs through Sunday, March 29th. The show is being performed in the former ASU Ceramics Research Center on 18 E 10th St, on the Northeast corner of 10th St. and Mill Ave.
Hasamelis is a new kind of site-specific performance where audiences will be led through the Department of Classified Technology and Research (or DOCTAR) to see the first human trials of department's latest military-grade technology: Hasamelis. As the eighth iteration of this project, Hasamelis has the ability to turn a human invisible, essentially making a person become a ghost.
See what happens when a Latino immigrant soldier (Julio Partida) is forced into being Hasamelis's first test subject by a relentless woman who's name, for purposes of confidentiality, has been redacted from the performance. (Tess Hernandez) However, once the test subject gets cold feet, Major Weatherford Collins (LeeVaughn Graves) must step in and save his department's project.
This performance also features the talent of Frank Nicholas Poon?, Ruth Carolina Arriaga Cifuentes?, Rachael Fondren?, and Bells Mae.
Hasamelis is directed by Colton Robertson. Scenic Design by Tracie James. Costume design by Emily Simzyk. Hasamelis illustration by Juan Bothe.
