Ecotone Physical Theatre performs "Falling Apart - An Evening in Three Acts"

We at the ARTS Lab are very pleased to welcome back Ecotone Physical Theatre Company!

WHAT: Ecotone Physical Theatre performs "Falling Apart - An Evening in Three Acts"

WHEN: Friday and Saturday, March 13-14, 8pm

WHERE: ARTS Lab Garage, 131 Pine NE, one block west of University and one block north of Central

HOW MUCH: $10 at the door only. Seating is limited.

Ecotone Physical Theatre is pleased to announce two performances only, March 13-14 at the ARTS Lab Garage. The ARTS Lab Garage is located near the main campus of the University of New Mexico, and co-located with UNM's High Performance Computing Center. It is a research center for investigations into the connections between the arts, technology and science.

Veering from the abstract to the comic, "Falling Apart - An Evening in Three Acts" is a fully improvised work. It is the framework in which the performers invent character, gesture, movement, dialogue in response to the environment and to each other. The performances will
feature collaborations with students in 3D Design, Video and Computer Animation, who will work to create environments for performers. The performances will also feature collaborations with UNM dance students.

Ecotone Physical Theatre is an Albuquerque-based performance ensemble of dancers, actors and musicians who mine the rich veins of improvisation: sonic, kinesthetic, textual, visual. Each performance is unique, a blend of slapstick dramedy, angular sound and gesture, rife with potential for hap and mishap. Ecotone Physical Theatre makes extensive use of computers, video and digital technology, random props and costumery, and a variety of dance techniques. The company was formed in the spring of 2006 when Jewell and Company Dance Theatre joined forces with the experimental music group Incus to collaborate on a series of improvised performances called Ecotone. The collaboration was so fruitful and well received, they decided to merge, taking the name of the performance as the name of the company. Its members are directors Donna Jewell and Kevin Paul with Lisa Nevada, Jessica Searer, Bill Clark, Mary Margaret Moore, Susan Skeele, Rufus Cohen, along with costume designer Stacia Smith.
