About this event:
CulturalDC is pleased to present a special Pay-What-You-Can preview of One Word More at the Mead Theatre Lab at Flashpoint. This innovative physical adaptation of The Tempest interrogates the historical silencing of women’s voices and the dynamics of isolation, communication, and power.
The piece examines the world from the perspective of Sycorax – a powerful female character in Shakespeare’s The Tempest, who the audience only ever hears about through the voices of men. One Word More gives Sycorax back both her voice and her body and asks what happened on the island before its overthrow by Prospero. The piece will feature dynamic physical theatre, original sculpture installations, a cutting-edge combination of recorded and live sound design, and intentional investigation of the contemporary legacy of colonial oppression.
PWYC preview, April 7 at 8pm
$20 tickets, April 8 – 30
