VIOLENT DELIGHTS: A Shakespearean Brawl-esque Sideshow Opens At Joe's Movement Emporium
Off the Quill returns to Joe's Movement Emporium's Meyer Performance Theater April 27 - May 5 with a deliciously savage "Violent Delights" sideshow. The performance includes many familiar faces for Off the Quill fans and will feature the dazzling physicality and ambitious choreography that has made the group stand out to audience and critics alike. Fans and foes of Shakespeare alike will find a special treat in this glorious "circus of violent delight." Tickets are $23 general admission and $17 for students and seniors and can be purchased online at www.joesmovement.org. Joe's is located at 3309 Bunker Hill Road, Mt. Rainier, MD 20712.
Blending stage combat, dance, physical theater, clowning, and traditional theatrical convention, a charismatic Ringmaster will lead you through Shakespeare's most spectacular life or death scenarios. But remember, Violent Delights have violent ends.
Off the Quill was founded by four like-minded friends (Patrick Mullen, Katie Wanschura, Leanne Dinverno, and J. Peter Langsdorf) who wanted to create a different kind of theater experience. One that blends many different mediums, like stage combat, dance, clowning, physicality, to present truly compelling stories to the audience. We aim to take classic and modern stories and make them our own, either by writing new material or presenting them in innovative ways.
General Admission $23, Students & Seniors $17
