Boom Arts presents Teatr-Pralnia's BOOM ARTS PRESENTS TEATR-PRALNIA'S "TSESHO?/WHAT'S THAT?" (UKRAINE)
The Paris Theatre
10/19-10/27/2018
TSESHO?/WHAT'S THAT? Teatr-Pralnia with CCA Dakh (Ukraine) On tour as part of Center Stage October 19-20 & 26-27, 2018 Venue: The Paris Theatre, 6 SW 3rd Ave, Portland Outreach programming in collaboration with World Oregon Sponsored by Don & Mary Blair “Often playful, but also mournful and even foreboding.”- The Guardian Boom Arts proudly presents Teatr-Pralnia (Laundry Theatre) with CCA Dakh of Ukraine in their first-ever US tour. This fearless music-theatre ensemble, sister troupe to the international sensation DakhaBrakha, draws on real time events, Facebook feeds, iconic Ukrainian poetry, catchy vamps, and improvised action to bring their audacious, super-charged puppet cabaret production TseSho?/What’s That? to life. Through live music, projections, puppetry, and original text and songs, they ask: How do we understand the world around us? Who can we trust in a world of “fake news,” corruption and propaganda? Can we discern truth from deception? As one ensemble member told The Guardian newspaper: “Our performances are like a mirror of things that are happening… We want our performance to be like an injection for people’s minds.” Age recommendation: 14+ (21+ on October 20 & 27). Library presentation: "Fresh Voices from Ukraine: Meet the Artists of Teatr-Pralnia (Laundry Theatre)" Tuesday, October 23, 6-7:30pm at Central Library Presented in partnership with World Oregon, featuring guest Professor Stepan Stimek of Lewis & Clark University.. Taking Kiev -- and the world -- by storm ever since graduating from the puppetry program of Ukraine's national theatre school in 2015, Teatr-Pralnia create fresh, unusual performances that evoke what it means to make art in a constantly changing society. Their multidisciplinary projects are now housed at CCA Dakh, Vlad Troitskyi’s cultural center in Kyiv, also home to the ethno-chaos quartet DhakaBrakha, and performance festival GOGOLFest. No reservation needed. First come, first served. The presentation of Teatr-Pralnia with CCA Dakh is part of Center Stage, a public diplomacy initiative of the U.S. Department of State's Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs, administered by the New England Foundation for the Arts in cooperation with the U.S. Regional Arts Organizations, with support from the Doris Duke Foundation for Islamic Art, and the Trust for Mutual Understanding. General management is provided by Lisa Booth Management, Inc. IMAGE DESCRIPTION: [Members of Teatr-Pralnia playing instruments on stage.] Photo credit: Zhenya Lulko

Marat/Sade in Broadway MARAT/SADE
Twilight Theater Company
10/12-10/28/2018
This Tony Award-winning play, which swept Europe before coming to America, is based on two historical truths: the infamous Marquis de Sade was confined in the lunatic asylum of Charenton, where he staged plays; and the revolutionary Jean-Paul Marat was stabbed in a bathtub by Charlotte Corday at the height of the Terror during the French Revolution. But this play-within-a-play is not historical drama. Its thought is as modern as today’s police states and The Bomb; its theatrical impact has everywhere been called a major innovation. It is total theatre: philosophically problematic, visually terrifying. It engages the eye, the ear, and the mind with every imaginable dramatic device, technique, and stage picture, even including song and dance. All the forces and elements possible to the stage are fused in one overwhelming experience. This is theatre such as has rarely been seen before. The play is basically concerned with the problem of revolution. Are the same things true for the masses and for their leaders? And where, in modern times, lie the borderlines of sanity?

Small Mouth Sounds in Broadway SMALL MOUTH SOUNDS
Artist's Repertory Theatre
10/7-11/4/2018
Tired of not living their 'best life,' six broken individuals gather at a wellness center in the middle of the woods for a weeklong silent retreat to breathe and reset. As the voice from an omniscient guru drones on in broken self-help speech, the attendees struggle to find their inner calm while awkwardly combating their mental and physical desires. Over the course of five days, the group inexpertly attempts to navigate through hurt feelings, crippling faux pas, and exposed vulnerabilities to reach enlightenment. Absurdly funny and profoundly poignant, Small Mouth Sounds encourages us all to put down the phone and just be in the moment. Awards for Bess Wohl: Drama Desk Award "...exploits the subversive power of stillness in our age of manic multitasking." -Karen D'Souza, Mercury News "...joyful and hilarious about the absolutely worst things we all face." -Jesse Green, Vulture

By Erin Courtney Directed by Emilie Landmann After a Hitchcockian swarm of bird descends upon Mark and Sarah’s lives, they can’t deny the mysterious forces that continue to push them together and eventually lead to an event that will scar them for the rest of their lives. Part interview, part comedy, part thriller. This 2012 Obie award-winning play has been described as "one of the most terrifying plays of the past decade" by the New York Times. "A haunting, romantic story with a mystery at its center." The New York Times "A piece of poetry whose form sculpts its content into a dynamic piece of art." The Huffington Post "The play's flights of imagination pull you up for a ride." Time Out New York
