WE PLAYERS IS BEGINNING A NEW DECADE!
This next phase brings many exciting challenges and developments. We are moving towards becoming our own non-profit, strengthening our organizational structure, and crystallizing plans for the next few performance sites. Join us on March 4th, and support We Players in marching forth into this new phase.
We have some rights of memory in this kingdom which to claim our vantage doth invite us...
We Players and the National Park Service are beginning the third year and final phase of monumental collaborations on Alcatraz Island. This groundbreaking partnership has utilized site-specific performing arts programming to provoke critical thought and stimulate conversation on the themes of incarceration, isolation, justice and redemption. In addition to engaging the visiting public through site-specific rehearsals and performances, We Players and the National Park Service are creating lasting and transferable tools that use performance elements to augment Ranger interpretation.
After presenting a modern adaptation of the Greek Oresteia in 2009 and a traveling performance of Hamlet in 2010, this final year includes several performance events and gallery installations intended to draw connections between the Alcatraz themes and current realities of incarceration, isolation, justice and redemption in the Bay Area and beyond.
We are also planning beyond 2011, and look forward to sharing some exciting details.
See you on March 4th!
