Imprint Theatreworks has announced a mini-season for the rest of 2020 that will include online presentations, including a play by Mark Oristano and a musical collaboration between local playwrights and musicians. Below is the complete news release.

 

Dallas — IMPRINT Theatreworks is pleased to announce a new abbreviated Season rounding out the end of 2020 with a focus on local artists and collaboration.

“2020. Whew, that says it all, doesn’t it?," says Artistic Director Ashley H. White. As we round the corner toward the last quarter of the year, we wanted to find ways to focus on uniting, engaging, and celebrating the incredible artists in DFW who have all been grounded during this pandemic.

As we looked forward, we also looked back, to the original goals of our Third Season (in hindsight, the Season 3 title “HOME” hits a little close to a nerve, now), which aimed to explore what it means to belong, to be seen, heard, and loved by a family - whether blood or chosen.

While doors are shuttered and the entire world is seeking solace and pivoting into this new, mostly virtual normal, we realized we can still reach for that goal.

Be seen.

Be heard.

Be loved.

Be you.

In seeking an avenue for engaging in this new style of storytelling and seeing how many artists are currently without platforms, we shifted our focus to providing opportunities to DFW artists. As such, we are pleased to be producing two brand new works, a timely and powerful play, and a collaborative new musical, both of which will bend the constructs of storytelling as we look into ways to bridge the gap between stage and online programming.

No matter who you are or where you are in your personal journey, you have a home. You will be seen. You will be heard.

Welcome Home.”

Local playwright, actor, and broadcasting veteran Mark Oristano debuts his timely piece that questions morality and humanity through an immersive look inside Einstein’s experiences surrounding the creation of the Atom Bomb. Themes of morality, humanity, and responsibility fill a narrative that’s asks as many questions as it answers, with sharp wit. This piece will be filmed and presented online as a hybrid stage & film project. Tickets available soon.

A collaboration written by Michael Federico, Jonathan Norton, Lauren LeBlanc, Cameron Casey, Alle Mims, and Franky Gonzalez; with original music by Veteran Children (Ian Ferguson, Aubrey Ferguson, and Drew Wall) and featuring movement by Danielle Georgiou

These ten creators will partner to weave a collective experience that shines a light on human nature and what connects us all. This piece will aim to blend an immersive visual experience across both digital and creative outdoor settings. Tickets available soon. Thanks For Reading
