ABOUT KING FOOL
We Players is embarking on a multi-year development of a new piece called King Fool, with a focus on themes of death and dying, loss, grief, and healing. Each performance will be immediately followed by a facilitated conversation with performers, site hosts and audience members. These conversations will inform future iterations of King Fool, as the King and his fool continue to wander through time and space, telling old stories, playing all the parts, reliving their miseries and finding humor in the face of grief and loss.
Saturday, September 6: Private residence, in San Anselmo; 4-7pm
Sunday, September 21: Private residence, in San Anselmo; 4-7pm
We Players presents site-integrated performance events that transform public spaces into realms of participatory theater. We bring communities together, reclaiming local spaces for public discourse and civic celebration through art. Extending the transformative powers of performance beyond the stage, we invite our collaborators and audience to engage fully and awaken to the spectacular world around us.
