T[HERE] is pleased to announce its first Cincy Fringe Festival production, ANONYMOUS. This hour-long play uses modern dance, spoken word, and original music to explore challenges of identity and belonging in a city where it’s too easy to remain unseen.

Directed and choreographed by Mandie Reiber with a script devised from hundreds of nameless letters written by citizens of Over-the-Rhine, ANONYMOUS provides an honest, intimate window into the heart of this city.

The show will run between May 31 and June 10 at Gabriel’s Corner (1425 Sycamore Street, Cincinnati, OH 45202) as part of the 2017 Cincy Fringe Festival. Tickets are $15.

This show is appropriate for teens and adults. To order tickets, visit cincyfringe.com/the-lineup. Performances are:

  • Wednesday, May 31 at 7:00pm
  • Saturday, June 3 at 6:30pm
  • Wednesday, June 7 at 7:45pm
  • Friday, June 9 at 8:30pm
  • Saturday, June 10 at 6:30pm

About the Company:
T[HERE] began when Art Academy of Cincinnati student Mandie Reiber set out into the streets of Over-the-Rhine to interview strangers about their challenges. Over the course of a year, more than a hundred anonymous stories evolved into an hour-long performance of dance, poetry, and original music created by Mandie and her cast of eight multidisciplinary artists. The performance, entitled “T[HERE],” was presented at AAC in 2016 as Mandie’s thesis exhibition. The production was awarded the Stephen H. Wilder Traveling Scholarship from AAC, and proceeded to perform at SOS Art Festival and on the streets of Rochester, NY. The next installment in the project, “The Devil Made Me Do It,” performed at Contemporary Dance Theater in November 2016 and focused on mental illness and suicide. T[HERE] is now producing its first Cincy Fringe Festival production, ANONYMOUS which pulls its script directly from interviews and anonymous letters from OTR citizens. Mandie and her cast are passionate about using art as a language to tell true, local, and relevant stories. Learn more about T[HERE] and read some of the stories at thethereproject.com.
