CLIMBING THE WALLS
We are hoping you are well and your family and friends Are you in quarantine alone, with someone? How are you filling your time? what are the voices in your head saying? What obsessions have emerged? Is it hard to get dressed in the morning? What is comforting you? What terrifies you? how does time feel?
Studio Theater in Exile and Hudson Valley MOCA put together a theater/poetry/image project Climbing the walls –
Climbing the Walls – a project that asked for artists across the genres to contribute, visual art, music, monologues, and poetry that explore the ways we are experiencing life now and how we imagine the future.
Our goal was to interweave the works, creating a collaborative, on-line, devised performance piece. Starting June 13, the work will be seen on the websites of both organizations.
The contributions we’ve received for Climbing the Walls are very exciting and evocative, dealing with the personal and social tensions we face and will be facing at this time of paradigm change. We will start rolling out the creations beginning June 6, 2020.
Climbing the Walls was conceived from a desire to create in a time of disorientation and disconnection. When we first conceived of the project, it was a way to connect and explore a shift in the moment. As more and more people decided to participate, across all genres, we realized how lucky we were to be in an artistic community that came together and contributed.
Participants range from teen to seniors, different in belief, race, talent, sexual orientation, idea, content, education – you know, the spectrum of our communities. The one commonality was a desire to communicate.
We will present 2-3 works per week, so visit again to see the new work on:
