Tina Satter/Half Straddle's «Ghost Rings»

Apr 22-24, 26-30 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets start at $15 New York Live Arts ‘50 & Change’ Commission Starring Chris Giarmo, Erin Markey, Tina Satter, Kristen Sieh Design by Chris Kuhl, Parker Lutz, Enver Chakartash, Naomi Raddatz, Amanda Villalobos Stage Management by Randi Rivera + Associate Produced by Alexandra Pinel + Dramaturgy by Jess Barbagallo The critically acclaimed, Obie-winning theater ensemble Half Straddle make their Live Arts debut with the world premiere of GHOST RINGS. Driven by an original song cycle, the work is inspired by elements of live band dynamics, graphic novels, and music videos and weaves a very personal grappling with a live ghost with the story of two friends taking the ultimate leap into adulthood. With text and lyrics by Tina Satter, the “genre-and-gender-bending, visually exacting stage artist” (The New York Times) and music by Chris Giarmo and Erin Markey, the show unfurls a narrative of contemporary friendship and family-making told through virtuosic performances and evocative design. Mixing deadpan magical realism with the considerations of feminist thinkers, the resulting piece is a tender, harrowingly funny, unexpected musical experience. Fievent.com | Contact | Privacy | Terms
