An Artistic Response

We live in challenging times. There is much written and broadcast to keep any citizen on over-load. Yet, this is not a time to tune out. Rather, is it a time to explore and express – to keep a constructive conversation going. Actors from the Moving Dock Theatre Company Acting Ensemble with Moving Dock’s Artistic Director, Dawn Arnold,  have been exploring the issues and concerns of our current climate through the artistic process of our company. Our goal has been to shape a show that would give voice to the concerns of our nation. Our hope has been that our efforts would contribute to the atmosphere in a positive way.

Many thanks to the audience that came out for our work-in-progress showing at the end of our first phase of devising our show. Your input was amazing! You taught us what you wanted to see and gave us ideas to move forward in developing the piece.

The second round of workshopping for the show has begun. We are taking new directions as our Ensemble continues developing this devised piece. We’re asking a lot of questions about what we are experiencing in the body politic and in our world right now, finding ways to speak about it, maybe by speaking less, expressing more, trying to find our humanity.

We will update you about our progress. Stay tuned for announcements about performances!
