Greatest Hits & Juicy Bits
August 11 - 21
Open Eye Figure Theatre presents
Written and performed by Kevin Kling. With musicians Simone Perrin, Michelle Kinney, Jacqueline Ultan, and Eric Jensen.
Every August, for the last decade, Kevin Kling has collaborated with artists to produce an original work at Open Eye. Each year they delve into a new theme, whether it's politics, myth, rebirth, loss, music, or ghosts. Shows have included "Come and Get it," "Flight," "Folks and Heroes," "Politico," "Humanimal," "Joice, Rejoice," "Hammer, Anvil, Stirrup," and "The Thin Veil.”
This tenth anniversary, the group celebrates some of their favorite songs, poems, and stories. Since every story lives in its time and place, the early material now resonates in new ways.
Where are the cultural and political trajectories headed now? What were these shows saying, warning, and advising to a shifting generation? How have we changed in this new millennium? Excited to perform together again, the group brings back a memory or two with fresh eyes and open hearts.
