Short Form 2013!
EVAN JOHNSON AND CHIP RODGERS
SOUL TRAVEL WORKSHOP
Evan and Chip are attempting to resurrect their past lives. The two best friends document their findings as they visit psychics, meditate, hold séances, undergo hypnotherapy and psychoanalysis, and learn just as much about their own messed-up relationship as the ones they might have had.
Evan and collaborator Chip Rodgers have been accepted into Incubator Arts Project’s Short Form program for 2013.
“Short Form is an interdisciplinary forum for artists who are looking to explore new forms and styles in a community based workshop and performance situation. This program gives artists from a variety of backgrounds including theater, performance art, dance and installation, the opportunity to each create a small repertoire of four 10-minute performances that are thematically connected, but independent pieces of art. Where a short story has necessary structural differences from a novel, we are interested in exploring what similar structural changes and necessities arise in compressed durational theater.
In early April, four artists/groups will be chosen to work in parallel for four months. Approximately each month beginning in May, the artists will present a new short work to the general public in the Parish Hall of St. Mark’s Church. The artists will also meet once a month to share with each other and the program curators their aesthetic and technical plans as well as discuss the previous month’s showing. Artists will then take time to work on a culmination piece that is presented upstairs in November at the Incubator Arts Project as part of a Short Form Festival where each artist will perform 40-60 minutes of work that came out of the Short Form forum.”
Their first performance took place on Saturday, May 25th, and they look forward to next month’s installation on Saturday, June 29th at 10pm. All performances are in the Parish Hall of St. Mark’s Church, beneath the IAP theater. $6 at the door!
