The Ocean takes a pause during the filibuster – Maggie Hall copyright 2022 American Repertory Theater Production
END OF YEAR NEWS
Here are some highlights of PearlDamour’s 2019:
PearlDamour’s book on our MILTON project is out, and you can pick up a copy here. Huge thanks to our wonderful publishers, 53rd Street press, for working so closely with us on this book, which includes the script to the play plus essays about our process.
After a successful and informative public showing of Ocean Filibuster last December, we dove into more drafting in July with composer Sxip Shirey and our dear friend Evan Spigelman, pinch-hitting for our performer Jenn Kidwell. A new ending! A new approach to backing vocals using a snazzy Midi Fighter. Keep an eye out for our September premiere dates in A.R.T.’s 2020-21 Season.
We were one of 16 projects chosen to present at the NEFA Idea Swap in October. So many inspiring artists, presenters and conversations!
We have joined forces with the trailblazing Amanda Cooper of ALC Management, who is helping us shape the life of this piece after the premiere.
The MILTON book is out
Our book on PearlDamour’s MILTON project has been published by 53rd Street Press! It contains the full script of the play as performed in Milton, NC along with essays on our work with the “5 Miltons” over the course of the project. Please consider buying a copy HERE. And you can still read more about the project on our Sky Over Milton website.
…Do you ever feel like you’re racing towards your own death…?
OCEAN FILIBUSTER will have its premiere with the ART in October 2020! We will be deep in development until then, working with scientists, artists, and our astounding creative team:
Performer JENN KIDWELL (along with a chorus of 6): composer SXIP SHIREY; scenic and projection designer TAL YARDEN; sound designer MIKAAL SULAIMAN; costumer OIVER GAJIC; and stage manager LISA MCGINN.
Stay tuned for updates throughout the year.
