Counter-Productions Theatre Company Presents “Kill the Virgin” by Kevin Broccoli @ AS220's Blackbox
May 21 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Counter-Productions Theatre Company Presents "Kill the Virgin" by Kevin Broccoli @ AS220's Blackbox

Counter-Productions Theatre Company is proud to present the world premiere of “Kill the Virgin” by Rhode Island playwright, Kevin Broccoli. This absurdist play explores the role of women as featured in one of the most popular modern film genres. Set in “Anytown, America,” the play tells the story of Ali, a misfit teenager who suddenly becomes aware that she is actually a doomed character in a horror movie. “I wanted to write a play about a girl who refuses to be a victim,” says Broccoli, “even when the world around her has other plans.”

“I’m so excited to have the world premiere of this play happen at Counter-Productions,” says Broccoli, who believes that Artistic Director Ted Clement “has assembled the perfect cast.” The play features Victoria Ezikovich as Ali, Carolyn Coughlin as Lilly, Rufus Qristofer Teixeira as Steve, Marina Tejada as Diaz, Adam Florio as Marconi, Jerry Middlemiss as Leonard, Chelsea Titchenell as Tracy, Lexie Lankiewicz as Sara, Derek Smith as Evan, David Monteiro as Darius, and Jennifer Pierel as Jo. In true horror fashion, the production will include nudity, sexual situations, violence, and general gore, making it unsuitable material for children. To quote the playwright, “This play is one of the most twisted things I’ve ever written.”

“Kill the Virgin” will conclude Counter-Productions Theatre Company’s 2015-2016 season in residence at AS220’s Blackbox Theatre, located at 95 Empire Street, Providence, RI. It opens in May, on Friday the 13th, and runs for two weekends. Show dates and times are May 13th, 14th, 20th & 21st at 7:00pm and May 15th & 22nd at 2:00pm. Admission is $20.

DIVERSITY FELLOWS! Present TRAINING DAY! @ AS220's Blackbox

Do you know how to interact with others in our current era of diversity and multiplicity?

Do you want to learn?

Join the DIVERSITY FELLOWS! for TRAINING DAY and learn how!

Saturday April 30th and May 1st

6PM SHARP at the AS220 Blackbox (aka the Diversity Zone!)

$10-$25 sliding scale.

($10 students; no one turned away)

***Warning: This performance is an interactive, participatory happening!  All audience members will be on stage, so come prepared!

 

TRAINING DAY explores the languages and performances of diversity and multiculturalism in various institutional locations, from the classroom to the boardroom to the yoga studio to the wide open spaces of the West. This live art diversity workshop animates institutional forms of diversity discourse through participatory attempts at transformation. The workshop is led, in turn by pairs of diversity counselors from various institutional sites (played by the DIVERSITY FELLOWS!), each of whom refer to different modes of performing diversity, multiculturalism, anti-oppressive ethics, and tolerance.

During this three-hour diversity workshop, conducted at fast-forward speed, the FELLOWS, embodying these personas, lead audiences on a semi-improvised journey through trust knots, role-plays, privilege lines, and sticky situations. The workshops use song, dance, video, discussion, and team-building activities to take audiences through the many stages of institutional diversity performance. Peppered with language from a range of popular and academic texts addressing racialization, privilege, institutional diversity, identity politics, neoliberal multiculturalism, representation, and futurity, TRAINING DAY pushes diversity training to its edges, to its most absurd abstractions, asking participants to consider the underlying assumptions and contradictions of performing the sanitized institutional norms of diversity and equality in the era of neoliberal multiculturalism.

 

DIVERSITY FELLOWS! is a critical camp collaborative interested in interrogating aspects of (their) Americanness. Aimed at blurring the lines between performance, politics, and the presentation of self in every-day life, the FELLOWS use race, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, class, and more as both lenses and performed identities to produce genre-blurring pieces that refer to pop-cultural tropes, critical theory, and queer performance tactics, creating chaotic environments out of seemingly simplistic interactive structures: Green card interviews, diversity workshops, make-up appointments, karaoke. Grounded in performance training from L’Ecole Internationale de Jacque le Coq and the American Conservatory Theater, educated in queer theory, postcolonial theory, performance studies, and public humanities from UC Berkeley and Brown University, Reya Sehgal and Marc Boucai unite theory, politics, and physical performance in their collaborative work. The DIVERSITY FELLOWS! have performed at conferences and performance festivals in Santa Cruz, Detroit, and New York City, and produce political performance variety shows in Providence, RI.

FRED THOMAS:

JO6A5289a

Fred Thomas is a Michigan-born songwriter and multi-instrumentalist who’s been at it forever. Starting out as a teenager in the Ann Arbor/Ypsilanti noise scene in the early 90’s, the guy just kinda started jamming and never stopped.

Dedicating the past two decades to various projects, Fred’s output has always been wildly varied and constantly changing. Best known for work as a “brainchild” sort of bandleader with the experimental pop sounds of Saturday Looks Good To Me, Thomas has also made significant noise and traveled the world on a seemingly endless string of tours with the washed-out physche of City Center, reverby surf punkers Swimsuit and the internal gentle pop duo MIghty Clouds with former SLGTM singer Betty Barnes.

Compulsively playing in bands, running small-scale labels and doing shows on a non-stop basis would make a comprehensive list of related projects a little exhausting, but it’s safe to say there’s always gonna be something homespun, beautiful and a little weird if Fred is involved.
