Our 2015 Season



What does a community do when the very reason for its existence comes under threat
from a completely mysterious and unknowably powerful force?

Gabriel Rodriguez, writer/performer of last season’s “the umbilical point”, returns to raise fresh
questions and explore new pathways in the infinite landscape of Story.

If you walk in the woods with silence and wild abandon, you may find yourself passing through into the forest that is every forest. In the center of this forest is a village. In the center of that village is a fire. This is a story about the people who tend that fire. In the moment we meet them, they stand on a threshold. For the first time in this tribe's existence, there is true danger in the air. For the first time, something has gone wrong.

"fire" will be devised and performed by an ensemble of storytellers who have spent the past year in deep contemplation and immersive exploration at The Michael Chekhov School (michaelchekhovschool.org), a new initiative of The Actors' Ensemble. Walking the dog Theater has the joyous opportunity to come into collaboration with the Ensemble and the Chekhov School to bring about this uniquely immersive storytelling experience.
