Quest: Arts for Everyone, a Maryland-based organization “committed to using the arts to…enable individuals who have been marginalized to realize their full potential” will collaborate with The Theater Project and Creative Alliance of Baltimore and Washington’s Gallaudet University to stage QuestFest 2010, a two-week festival of primarily non-verbal theater, in the two cities. The festival will run from March 1 until the 14th.
Presenters are from Singapore, Japan, South Africa and Iran as well as eight shows from the United States. Included will be David Gaines’ 7 (x1) Samauri, a sensation of the 2008 Capital Fringe Festival which got a follow-up performance in the fall.
QuestFest will stage performances at Gallaudet (800 Florida Avenue NE in Washington), Towson’s Center for the Arts (8000 York Road), and Baltimore’s Theatre Project (45 West Preston Street) and Creative Alliance at the Patterson (3134 Eastern Avenue).
In addition to the performances, QuestFest will feature master classes, panel discussions, workshops and post-show discussions. Full details are at the QuestFest website, www.questfest.org.
