Waterhouse Collective Presents A MINUTE FLOWERING: QUEER MYTHOS PLAYS
A Minute Flowering is an original series of experimental short plays. The stories we're telling in A Minute Flowering are old myths made queer and new, as well as new queer narratives presented in a mythic style. These short queer fantasy plays are comprised of: Jeremy Geragotelis' Poems and Sketches, and Singer Joy's Tree Plays.
The 27th starts off the production at 7pm with a Germination Celebration in which audience members together with the members of our collective, plant germinated seeds in pots they can take home with them; making a literal and symbolic start to a brand new adventure in queer artistic growth, together. On the 29th, between our 7pm and our 10pm show, there will be a cocktail hour, in which Water House Collective members and audience members can drink and celebrate together.
Featuring: Andrew Abbensett, Caitlin Brzezinski, Julia Crowley, Eli Diamond, Nick DiLeonardi, Denali Thomas, and Emma Welch
Water House Collective makes theater that is lyrical, magical, physical, and immediate. In an age of growing queer representation media, we are constructing forums in which to share and amplify queer stories that have not yet been given a platform.
Water House Collective's production practice is borne out of the belief that subverting strict, normative production hierarchies within the collaborative process is imperative to the success of mounting work by, and collaborating with, diverse artists from all experiences, orientations and abilities. We believe that the best personal and performance practices are those, which reflect, and on reflecting, change.
