Sacred Circle Theatre Company To Present Third Annual WORD MADE FLESH In Bushwick

Sacred Circle Theatre Company To Present Third Annual WORD MADE FLESH In Bushwick

Sacred Circle Theatre Company, the queer/feminist theatre company based in Bushwick, Brooklyn, is presenting their third annual festival of short-form new work, Word Made Flesh. Tickets are available at bit.ly/WordMadeFlesh2018

"This is my favorite event of our season!" said Senior Artistic Associate Mia Longenecker. "It's a time when we come together as community- as a queer community and as an artistic community."

Billed as "an evening of embodied imaginings," Word Made Flesh will feature short plays, new choreography and compositions, burlesque and drag pieces, and multi-media performance all inspired by the themes of "Body, Identity, Ritual, and Innovation."

"Every year, people present intensely personal ideas for us to bring to life, and this year is no exception," Company Leader Raymond Arnold was quoted as saying. "That means something different for each piece and each artist. Some are memoir, some are a deeply felt political conviction, and some are just an idea an artist truly loves."

Word Made Flesh 2018 features the work of Mia Longenecker, Becca Travis, Anise, Kasey Blezinger, Justin Greene, Elizabeth Theriot, Eva Meiling Pollitt, Sarah Rosengarten, Kaelyn Brandt, Sherill-Marie Henriquez, Annabelle Mayock, Sami Binder, Aron Canter, Madeline Barr, Nadia Khayrallah, Eleanor Altholz, Maya Carter, Lianna King, K.Go, Mark Heaton, Molly Siskin, and Raymond Arnold.

"The phrase 'word made flesh' is also our mission statement at Sacred Circle," Arnold said. "It is about how we are obsessed with turning theory into practice, making word into flesh."

"As a nonbinary person and a trans-genre theatre artist, I firmly believe we need spaces like Word Made Flesh to foster the creation of work outside the realm of the mainstream" said Longenecker. "It means so much to be able to share this work with our community in Bushwick"

Word Made Flesh will be presented at Mayday Space at 176 St Nicholas Ave in Bushwick, Brooklyn on October 12+13. The show starts at 8pm. Tickets are $13 in advance or $15 at the door, available at bit.ly/WordMadeFlesh2018
