THE BODY SPEAKS: SCRIPTED from The Performance Gallery as part of the 2011 Cincinnati Fringe Festival. You can read the show description here.
As usual, The Performance Gallery brings another interesting, thought-provoking, head-scratching, full o’ talent, show to the Cincinnati Fringe Festival.
Choosing to create the individual works that make up this production independently was clearly the correct decision. Each piece is focused, well executed and has an individual voice that demands and holds the audience’s attention. Two works, OUT AND REACH and THE BODY SPEAKS, definitely pulled me in and left me wondering what happened next.
This production also suffers from the sight line blues at times. In fact, several audience members abandoned their seats to stand in the back of the performance space. From my seat near the back row, another problem was the lighting for the puppetry work was too dim.
Overall, this exercise in assigned inspiration is a success for both the creators and the audience.
Only two performances remain of THE BODY SPEAKS: SCRIPTED at 1411 Vine:
- Tue, June 7 at 8:15pm
- Fri, June 10 at 7:30pm
