A WORLD PREMIERE BY George Brant, THIS UNPRECEDENTED THEATRICAL EVENT IS INSPIRED BY THE PHOTOGRAPHS OF Francesca Woodman, AND PRESENTED BY Bridge Repertory Theater WITH ORIGINAL MUSIC, MOVEMENT BY Doppelgänger Dance Collective, AND AN EPIC CAST OF 30 WOMEN
In Bridge Repertory’s dynamic staging of George Brant’s Dark Room, audiences will be immersed in a journey of eleven vignettes, each inspired by a different photograph from the canon of Francesca Woodman. The audience’s guide will be a single girl in a polka dot dress – a character created by Brant and based on Woodman, who took her own life in 1981 at the age of 22. Theatrical, imaginative, dark and humorous, the vignettes are at once independent and hauntingly interwoven to create an unforgettable experience.
