ARC in the DARK:

Engaging with the “Arc of the Viral Universe: A Notebook Project”

Exhibition of Notebooks

Studio Theater in Exile @ Hudson Valley MOCA – June 1 – 30, 2023 

Hours: Thursdays & Sundays 11-5

https://www.studiotheaterinexile.com/   https://www.hudsonvalleymoca.org/

Organized by artist, Carla Rae Johnson in collaboration with Arc of the Viral Universe “Arc-ists,”  and with Studio Theater in Exile at Hudson Valley MOCA 1701 Main Street, Peekskill, NY

Interactive Event: Sunday, June 11, 2023 – 3:00 – 5:30 pm

Participants will share a real-time experience of turning and reading notebook pages via a large-scale projection in the theater. Notebook creators (“arc-sts”) will offer insights into how these notebooks illuminate their unique experience of the turbulent months of 2020/2021.

Then, just as during the early days of the pandemic, we will find ourselves in total darkness!

Participants, in turn, will use a small light to illuminate their notebooks through reading and descriptions of the imagery.  The audience will be invited to join in, sharing from a notebook they have chosen.

About Studio Theater in Exile

mission: Studio Theater in Exile collaborates with playwrights and performers to create and develop original work. Studio Theater in Exile is a company without a space that collaborates with its environment. It is an outgrowth of the belief that theater takes place anywhere and can be performed anywhere – in the streets, galleries, libraries, museums, black boxes, backyards, and even on a stage. We have been working with performers and playwrights to develop work that can be performed in any venue. Co-founders, Mara Mills and Jeremy Gratt have worked together, since 1991, to present original work, based on the art in an exhibition, a social justice issue, history, or the spark of an idea. Karina Ramsey joined Studio Theater in Exile in 2018.
