The Vorführefekt Theatre offers performance and workshop
The Minot State University Campus Players will host The Vorführefekt Theatre's presentation of "The 7-Person Chair Pyramid High Wire Act" Tuesday (Nov. 5) in Aleshire Theater at 9 p.m. Earlier in the day, The Vorführefekt Theatre will present a special theatre workshop in Aleshire Theater from 2 to 5 p.m. Reservations are not required for the play, which is free and open to the public.
"'The 7-Person Chair Pyramid High Wire Act' is Donna Oblongata's first original play independent of The Missoula Oblongata (an experimental theatre company) - made in collaboration with long-time collaborator Sarah Lowry and the visual artist and performer Patrick Costello. Donna's theatrical work has been cited by Rolling Stone as one of the reasons Baltimore had the 'Best Scene in the Country' and by the Baltimore City Paper when it named DIY Theater as the city's Best Trend: 'Best exemplified by overlapping theater factions of Wham City ... and Missoula Oblongata ... the productions are big, bold, and unendingly impressive," a Vorführefekt Theatre news release related.
The play has toured twice around the U.S., including performances and workshops at the Flint Public Art Project, Southern Illinois University, University of Illinois at Urbana, Minot State University and Heart of the Beast Puppet and Mask Theatre in Minneapolis. The play will tour New Zealand and Australia in February 2014 and Europe later that summer.
This project was funded in part by a grant from the Puffin Foundation and totally made possible by a residency at the Beehive Collective. For more information, photos and tour dates, visit www.vorfuhreffekt.com or email email@example.com.
