DramaTech welcomes Moving Earth

Presented by the Alliance Française and Goethe-Zentrum

December 3, 2021 at 7pm

Where to land? Whereas in 1610 we had to absorb the shock that “the earth moves », following Galileo’s discovery, in 2021 we have to accept the much more surprising shock that the earth trembles and reacts to human actions to the point of disrupting all our development projects. Moving earths is the second of a series of performances by Bruno Latour and Frédérique Aït-Touati with Duncan Evennou.

Text: Bruno Latour / Directed by: Frédérique Aït-Touati / Stage design: Patrick Laffont de Lojo / With: Duncan Evennou / Production: Critical Zone / Co-production: Centre Pompidou, Théâtre Nanterre-Amandiers / With the participation of DICRéAM and the support of the Carasso Foundation and NA Fun.

Urinetown

Music and Lyrics by Mark Hollmann, Book and Lyrics by Greg Kotis

April 8 – 23, 2022 at 8pm

In a Gotham-like city, a terrible water shortage, caused by a 20-year drought, has led to a government-enforced ban on private toilets. The citizens must use public amenities, regulated by a single malevolent company that profits by charging admission for one of humanity’s most basic needs. Amid the people, a hero decides that he’s had enough and plans a revolution to lead them all to freedom!

Inspired by the works of Bertolt Brecht and Kurt Weill, Urinetown is an irreverently humorous satire in which no one is safe from scrutiny. Praised for reinvigorating the very notion of what a musical could be, Urinetown catapults the “comedic romp” into the new millennium with its outrageous perspective, wickedly modern wit and sustained ability to produce gales of unbridled laughter.

About the show:

Someone sneezes. Someone can’t get a signal. Someone won’t answer the door. Someone put an elephant on the stairs. Someone’s not ready to talk. Someone is her brother’s mother. Someone hates irrational numbers. Someone told the police. Someone got a message from the traffic light. Someone’s never felt like this before.

In this fast moving kaleidoscope, more than a hundred characters try to make sense of what they know.

The Flick

by Annie Baker

June 24 – July 2, 2022 at 8pm

In a run-down movie theater in central Massachusetts, three underpaid employees mop the floors and attend to one of the last 35mm film projectors in the state. Their tiny battles and not-so-tiny heartbreaks play out in the empty aisles, becoming more gripping than the lackluster, second-run movies on screen. With keen insight and a finely-tuned comic eye, The Flick is a hilarious and heart-rending cry for authenticity in a fast-changing world.

Someone sneezes. Someone can’t get a signal. Someone won’t answer the door. Someone put an elephant on the stairs. Someone’s not ready to talk. Someone is her brother’s mother. Someone hates irrational numbers. Someone told the police. Someone got a message from the traffic light. Someone’s never felt like this before.

In this fast moving kaleidoscope, more than a hundred characters try to make sense of what they know.

As you are preparing to see our first production with a live audience post-COVID, we wanted to share some details with you.  LOVE AND INFORMATION will be performed live in our black box space.  Audience will be seated outside of DramaTech and watch this live performance projected on a screen.  

PREPARING FOR THE PERFORMANCE

1.  Please dress for the temperatures.  We will have heaters and blankets for audience members to use.

2.  Bring your own chair.  We will have chairs available, but you are welcome to bring your own to make you more comfortable.

3.  The lobby’s amenities will be available during the performance.  These include restrooms, a concession stand, and a place to warm up.

5.  Join us following Friday night performances for Let’s Try This!, our improv comedy troupe.  These performances will also be held outside, so plan accordingly.

IN THE EVENT OF INCLEMENT WEATHER

We will decide whether or not to continue with a live performance by checking hourly weather forecasts at 2pm.  If we decide to cancel the live portion of a performance, we will transfer your tickets to a live stream ticket.  If you would prefer to see the show live on another night, please email us at tickets@dramatech.org and request an exchange to another evening.
