HIGHLAND LAKE, NY — NACL’s Tannis Kowalchuk and Brett Keyser will perform a work-in-progress presentation of their newest original play, “Struck,” on Sunday, September 2 at 7 p.m. at NACL Theatre, 110 Highland Lake Rd.
“Struck” is an exploration of neuroscience and brain trauma. An NACL press release describes it as “a poetic dance on the razor-edge of mortality, as the brain and body look for meaning and struggle to communicate, recover and re-discover the sense of ‘self’ after a crisis. Inspired by her real-life experience of stroke and recovery, Tannis Kowalchuk and her colleagues explore the subject with convergent technologies for creation and expression, bridging the domains of art and science.”
The multi-media performance is being developed by writers/actors Keyser and Kowalchuk, director Ker Wells, neuroscientist Allison Waters, playwright/dramaturg Kristen Kosmas, digital artist Brian Caiazza, filmmaker Tina Spangler, costumer Karen Flood, dress designer Pam Mayer of Enochian, table designer Hall Smyth, and technical direction by Zoot of Woodstock Stage and Screen. It will be completed in early 2013 and will be presented as part of the theatre season at Cleveland Public Theatre in March 2013.
Tickets cost $15 to $25 (sliding scale). Visit www.nacl.org .
