WEST BRATTLEBORO — Theatre Adventure invites everyone to its fall production, Belonging, at the West Village Meeting House, 29 South St., on Wednesday, Nov. 8, and Thursday, Nov. 9, at 10:30 a.m., and Friday, Nov. 10, at 7 p.m. The Nov. 10 show will be livestreamed.
The Thursday Troupe has been learning and discovering more about themselves as individuals and in relationship with others and has been working with visiting artist Nettie Lu Lane, who is guiding them in the "Red Nose Clown" discipline.
Lane guided students with these phrases: "Breathe. Look at the audience. Connect. Give back to the audience. Follow your impulse. Trust yourself. Focus on being rather than doing. Your red nose is the smallest mask in the world," according to organizers.
And now, after two months of exploration and play, they have a show to share, one they say is about believing in oneself and giving back to the audience.
"Characters will improvise with physicality and surprises. Imagine the theater is our living room and you are our friends coming over for tea. We look forward to joviality, laughter, and poignant moments of connection. Witness the courage, open hearts, joy, and generosity that will create a dynamic circle - a heartbeat of connection - between the performers and audience," states the news release.
ASL Interpretation is provided for all performances. The West Village Meeting House is a wheelchair-accessible venue, and Theatre Adventures' Disabilities Specialist is happy to discuss accessibility or accommodation questions.
Theatre Adventure is a nonprofit organization offering year-round inclusive theater arts programming, providing a caring and creative community for artists with disabilities to claim the stage with distinction.
