Tricklock's Manoa Project This Weekend

One of Tricklock Theatre Company's best programs is its Manoa Project which works with teens to develop their writing, directing and acting skills in a professional theater setting.

Now in its sixth year, it's wonderful to see some of the talent that's blossomed along the way, with alums heading off to college for writing and film programs, and otherwise embarking on new creative journeys. Often surprisingly perceptive from talent so young, the Manoa Project is always worth checking out.

Celebrating six wonderful years of training and performance, Tricklock Company’s The Manoa Project is a summer theatre training program for Albuquerque area teens, co-sponsored by The National Hispanic Cultural Center, NM Arts, Albuquerque Community Foundation, and Albuquerque Academy. The program gives students an intensive, 7-week training program in physical theatre, led by the award-winning Tricklock Company (2008 “Best of Burque” –Live Theatre Troupe). Students learn the dynamics and tools of creating theatre in an ensemble-based environment, in conjunction with producing and performing a world-premiere performance of a new play by a New Mexico teen playwright. The script is selected through a juried, statewide competition, and receives full production in Albuquerque, followed by a brief tour to Santa Fe. The program is tuition-free, giving equal opportunity of training and performance to all Albuquerque teens.

About “Sicarius Aurorae”:
Travel down a back alley in ancient Rome, make sure you have your wits and knife about you, and practice that secret handshake, as you enter the world of Sicarius Aurorae. The year is 33 BC, the height of the Roman Empire. Rome balances on a tightrope, as would-be revolutionaries and dictators fight for prominence, setting the stage for a government that will set the precedent for years to come. Meet Cassus Septimus, a simple Praetorian caught between the feuding factions. Content to be a part of the bigger picture of a great civilization, Cassus finds himself suddenly singled out when he is framed for the murder of his wife. Follow Cassus as he falls in with a group of vigilantes known as the Sicari Aurorae. Travel with him as he journeys down the dark road of revenge, adding to the body count of the already turbulent times. Be there when Cassus realizes he must not only face his enemies but also himself, in a battle to discover who he is. The playwriting competition-winning play for the Manoa Project’s 2008 Season digs deeper at the Rome we know and revere and gives a glimpse at the underbelly, where corruption, vengeance and betrayal rule. Playwright, and Bosque School Senior, Asher Ely not only invites his audience into a meticulously created past, but asks an essential question: what does it mean to truly think independently?
