Open Eye Figure Theatre Presents


Music & Meditations of the State of the Red State

October 5 - 7, 2018

A FUSEBOX project by Wilhelm/Wilhelm

Created and performed by Jeremy and David Wilhelm, the two brothers go behind enemy lines in Iowa exploring their lives and the lives of others using the art of deception and the universal language of love: music!

Jeremy Wilhelm is a noted director, writer, and musician whose work has been seen locally at the Guthrie, Mixed Blood Theatre, Walker Art Center, Workhaus Collective, and regionally at the Ontological Hysteric, New York Theater Workshop, and the Sadie Arts Center in Montreal, among others.  He has collaborated and co-created numerous projects with Lucidity Suitcase, including Red Eye to Havre de Grace, a meditation on the last days of Edgar Allen Poe.  Jeremy’s time with FUSEBOX will allow him to work on a new song cycle/mono-opera/solo performance that examines “red state” voters, the working class, mega-churches, golfers, big-game trophy hunters, the Boy Scouts of America, gun ownership, and a few creatures from various folklore traditions. As a member of the inaugural cohort, Wilhelm says “I’m specifically interested in the kind of colleague-driven support and feedback that FUSEBOX will provide.”

FUSEBOX projects are exciting, unpredictable, new works in development, created by Twin Cities artists exploring new intersections between performance, song, puppetry, dance, and visual art.

Audiences are an important part of the process! Sharing these new works-in-progress give artists an opportunity to interact with audiences and refine their productions based on audience feedback.
