Earth Plays (Part Two of the Elements Cycle)
Earth Plays (Part Two of the Elements Cycle) is a diverse selection of premieres ranging from comedy to tragedy, from the surreal to the too real. Journey to the center of the earth, witness Smokey the Bear's confession, and prepare yourself to eat the whole world as Earth Plays takes audiences on a journey, literally and figuratively, throughout the historic Gordon Square Theatre. Travelling through the theatre, audiences will experience new theatre in a whole new way.
These provocative vignettes of Earth Plays provoke us to reconsider our relationship to the very ground we walk on, and remember they beauty and joy of our environment.
Specially featured shows include new song and movement work by CPT's own Executive Artistic Director Raymond Bobgan, a solo-performance by the acclaimed Chris Seibert, and a new work by Theatre Ninjas' Jeremy Paul. Other creators for Earth Plays include Molly Andrews-Hinders, Melissa Crum, Caitlin Lewins, Pandora Robertson, Renee Schilling, and Adam Seeholzer.
CPT initiated The Elements Cycle to nurture a reverence for our environment and raise awareness about critical issues related to sustainability. This ambitious and powerful multi-performance project will be implemented over three seasons and involves the creation of five new, world premiere productions. Water, Earth, Fire and Air are the focus of the first four shows. Focusing on humans, the culminating fifth performance focuses on our historical past and our hopeful future. Myths, literature, science, sociology and ecology provide a foundation for the imagery, poetry and music in these plays and the compelling stories about the relationship between humanity and the environment.
