- DA! Returns to the Motherland
After more than five years creating new work in the U.S. using contemporary Russian acting and movement theory, DA!'s trio of artistic leaders is traveling to Russia together for the first time! Heather Huggins, Lisa del Rosario, and Kirk German will be presenting at the Podium International Festival of Theatre Schools 2013 in Moscow this November. This year, the Podium theme is "How we Study," and DA! will be demonstrating ways that Feldenkrais ATM, Lessac, and other methodologies can be used to contribute to devising original new work. All three of us are overjoyed at this incredible opportunity to interface with theatre practitioners and educators from all around the world!
- The After-Glow of DAYBOYNIGHTGIRL
- DA!'s biggest original interdisciplinary project to date was a true labor of love; we continue to be inspired by lessons learned from the experience and to be humbled by people's response. Following nearly two years of collaborative development and workshops, the full-length adaptation of the classic fantasy story debuted at the Long Center's Rollins Theatre in the Summer of 2012 to full houses and enthusiastic reviews. Austin Live Theatre called it "spectacular at every level" and "an imaginative journey away from the familiar." DBNG was also honored with a B. Iden Payne Award for Outstanding Choreography (Lisa del Rosario) and FIVE other nominations, including Outstanding Direction (Heather Huggins), Script (Kirk German), Lighting Design (Jason Amato), Performer (Sophia Franzella), and Production for Youth.
- Frequency RESONATES
Using the long-term collaborative workshop model for devising new work established by the development process for DAYBOYNIGHTGIRL, DA! has begun a new and exciting journey. Frequency explores the many ways that sound can shape our experiences, our story-telling, and our understanding of space and environment. Three talented guest artists (Meg Peck, Maggie Wilhite, and Dave Keslick) joined our ensemble to create the material for the first installation, which had public performances in September 2013. Stay tuned here for updates on future incarnations of Frequency!
