Actors Bridge Ensemble joins theatre artists from across the United States in a series of theatrical events in response to the outcome of this year's presidential election. Actors Bridge Ensemble will take part in the National Month of Outrage with two evenings of performances by Nashville citizens and artists with RALLY/CRY on January 13th and GRRRL NATION on January 14th.
RALLY/CRY, January 13 at 7pm, is an evening featuring new theatrical works written by artists in the tumultuous days and weeks following the election. To many, waking up the day after the election felt like waking up in a changed America. This event is a navigation of that new world. An explosion of response to the unthinkable, the event will include short performances by local writers, devisers and theatremakers performed by Nashville artists. Artists interested in participating should visit tinyurl.com/aberallycry for more details.
GRRRL NATION, January 14 at 7pm, is an evening of monologues, dances and songs to give women’s stories of resistance a voice at a time when misogyny and hate speech is being legitimized at the highest levels of government. We envision this as an evening of inquiry, engagement, solidarity and hope.
