Cry Havoc Now On Sale at AT&T Performing Arts Center

The nonprofit AT&T Performing Arts Center is pleased to announce that tickets for Cry Havoc Theater Company are on sale now! Cry Havoc Theater Company is part of the 2017/2018 ELEVATOR PROJECT season which features the work of small and emerging arts groups performing on the Center's campus in the Dallas Arts District. The Elevator Project's season features productions from eight Dallas-based performing arts companies.

The 2017/2018 Elevator Project is the first time a season has been curated by a five-person panel of arts professionals and advocates. From an April call-for-entries from Dallas-based artists and arts groups, 41 proposals were submitted. Some of the guiding criteria included placing an emphasis on new works; diverse genres, artists and subject matter; unusual use of performance space; supporting groups without a home; and more.

In our highly politicized environment, conversations about gun ownership and gun control go nowhere. In fact, the very words used to discuss guns in America shut down the conversation between people on opposite sides of the debate. It is as if we are living in Babel, in a state of confusion, unable to get anywhere or to understand one another. What would happen if we sat down and listened to each other?

Following the success of Shots Fired, the acclaimed documentary theatre piece about the 2016 Dallas Police shootings, Cry Havoc Theater Company is creating a new documentary work that examines the second amendment right to keep and bear arms. For Babel, the company will travel locally and nationally collecting interviews from voices on multiple sides of the gun ownership debate. Those interviews, along with the teens' reflections on them, will offer a glimpse into the emotionally charged, national conversation.
