Great solo performance is a combination of compelling content, skillful use of space, and charismatic, dynamic storytelling. This November, Portlanders will have the chance to see live theater that draws them into the present moment, live storytelling that is extemporaneous, improvised, and deeply personal. These feature-length solo productions take place at Hipbone Studio over a single weekend in November, the 22nd and 23rd, 2013 at 8:00 p.m.
The focus is on local talent, Urban Tellers Kriya Kaping (Friday) and Jeff Burke (Saturday), with the addition of a special artist-in-residence, Denis Gessing from Colorado (both the 22nd and the 23rd). It’s an experience that celebrates storytelling as solo performance. Audiences get up close and personal in the intimate black box theater as the artists delight them with real, true stories.
The Solo Series evolved out of the five-year run of the Singlehandedly Festival. Like the festival, each story in the Solo Series displays the breadth of talent and the rich complexity of each individual performer as they bring their own personal experiences to the stage, collectively creating a beautiful collage about the human experience. The most delicious aspect of the series is that each performer will be presenting her or his story for the first time to a live audience – a world premiere – giving the audience an opportunity to shape each piece with the storytellers. with the storytellers.
