Take the tour! I’m Bleeding All Over the Place: A Living History Tour delves into the exhilarating and awkward emotional space of being out of time and out of step. Guided by ten performers, audiences move through a series of theatrical encounters where bodies, biography, performance tropes, and original text come together to create an unforgettable experience that probes the potential of spectatorship. Stepping into the emotional landscape of everyday conflict, this work examines how gender and sexuality, story, conflict and resolution fuse in the dynamic space between performers and their audience.
An exploration of the politics and mechanisms at play in the theatrical form, I’m Bleeding All Over The Place asks us to own our expectations, confront our autonomy inside of the group and to challenge ourselves to address how we are implicated in the creation of the event. This act of coming together and appearing before each other produces an authorship of meaning that is both a collaborative effort and an individual act of will. On this tour individual histories, the culture at large, even the formal apparatus of theater become part of the transformative energies that implicate the actor into a political body. Thrilling collision? I’m Bleeding All Over The Place: A Living History Tour offers you a chance to find out. This piece travels through space, but does not involve audience participation.
The performers include Becca Blackwell, Jane Bradley, Hye Young Chyun, Sharon Hayes, Laryssa Husiak, Anna Kohler, Zavé Martohardjono, Greg Mehrten, Alexander Paris and Tanya Selvaratnam.
The design team includes Brendan Connelly (Original Music & Sound Design), Andreea Mincic (Set Design), Sarah Johnston (Lighting Design), Alice Tavener (Costume Design) and OBIE Lifetime Award winner Justin Townsend (Original Set Design Plan).
And with Stage Manager Max Pendergast and an amazing crew of assistants, Nick Auer, Dan Peeples, Joe Burkhard and Heather Konish.
