Virtual New Works Festival: Recording Access, Online, Saturday, 20. June 2020
About this Event
We are thrilled to present our first-ever Virtual New Works Festival! All works were created specifically to be performed virtually.
Below is all the recorded performances you can have access to!
Too Many Exits by Rachel Weekley. What's a clown to do in a world where you cannot see, nor touch your audience? When the world sees itself only through screens? When shows are reduced to talking heads and laptop cameras? Well obviously pour their heart out to you with as much of their self as they can muster. This is a story about Dogs, and Stars, Supers, and Telephones. It's about where we can go when we have to stay put. And how we know ourselves when we lost the instruction manual but definitely skimmed it once, at one point, for sure, or maybe just read the table of contents. We'll find out.
Bottled Poetry: a song cycle for acapella voice performed by Rebecca Richardson & Felix Jarrar, directed by Bea Goodwin.

Love Game 5 by The Haven Project. Seth and Wren have fallen for the same man yet again and this time, it's their best friend Nathan. There's only one way to settle this: through game show antics and immersive improv. Join the Haven Project for Love Game 5!
Mind the Gap by Nancy Mendez-Booth. A recently downsized corporate writer leads job seekers through an online tutorial on how to find the right words to answer an uncomfortable interview question. This reflective how-to uses humor to unearth the fears at the root of the stuff no one really wants to talk about in interviews.
I Only Have Eyes For You by Ashley Lauren Rogers
Alice in Etherland by Chaotic Good Collective. Following an environmental collapse, the world as you know it is in chaos. A powerful corporation called Jabberwock has figured out how to shut down all wireless internet, and you now live in Etherland, where online connection is very difficult to come by. And yet, one day you receive a mysterious message from Alice, who has a plan to save everyone. Join her as you **** some familiar Wonderland characters and try to beat them at their own games. Your time in Etherland is immersive, so you’ll be making real decisions and solving real puzzles to help Alice defeat the Jabberwock and restore connection to the world!
Tickets are available as a Video Access Pass: a one-time pay-what-you-can fee grants you access to o the recordings of each performance (so if you were unable to join us live, you can still see the work).
Ticket proceeds and some artist stipends will be donated to Color of Change, Reclaim the Block, Black Visions Collective, and Black Lives Matter.
