20 years of Moving Poets
In October of 2017 it will be 20 years since our first public production of DRACULA.
IT WILL BE A SPECIAL YEAR that includes Cabin Fever, being part of We See Heaven Upside Down for CPCC's SENSORIA Festival (opening April 6), contributing to Charlotte Fringe Arts Events, continuing Rough Krapp Acts and participating in Elysium Solutum in Berlin (June - September).
The big celebration though will happen in October when we bring together Moving Poets artists from around the world in Charlotte for the world premier of Speakeasy. More info and exact dates will be announced soon, stay tuned!
The "box" we live in, this construct of things we do and don`t, we believe or are supposed to believe... what we consider home, how we fit in, who we are and want to be... How is it determined by others - like society, religion, friends, family and circumstances? ... How do we determine it ourselves? What does the world outside look like?
The "box" accompanies everyone at all times. It can be our shelter, jail, promise and demise - all real and absurd, brutal, kind, funny and tragic... Countless works of art have been inspired by the "box" and many more will follow.
Moving Poets` THE BOX challenges artists and communities internationally to pass their "boxes" to each other in a match across multiple fields of varying consistencies. It examines uniquely human experiences and concepts as well as the arts and the creation of art to discover, exchange and build - and to relate our selves to others and the other.
