InBocca Performance
July 28-31
Village Players [Fort Thomas]

Watch out. Because little girls? They grow up. They become beasts. Or women. Or both.
What happens when a group of girls are sent, year after year, into a dark wood to fight a mythic beast? Join us as we explore the fairy tale of Little Red Riding Hood, twisting it into new avenues and discovering what happens to generations of women as they unravel the stories, trauma, and heartache that weave together our identities and instead discover the meaning of community strength and care.

Auditions Announced for THE BOOK OF MONSTERS at InBocca Performance

IBP_logoAnnouncing auditions for InBocca Performance’s summer production, THE BOOK OF MONSTERS!

This production is unlike anything anyone is offering in the Greater Cincinnati Area for kids in theatre this summer! Working with InBocca, your child will create an original devised theatrical production containing original music, dance, and writing. This means that our kids write their theatre themselves over the course of a month–and this isn’t ‘children’s theatre,’ but amazing, bleeding edge theatre made by kids but polished and presented to all audiences.

This summer, we are exploring the monster that lives under the bed, in the closet, beneath the dark waves, in our most frightening dreams, and in our oldest folk tales. Venture up to the attic, open the creaking pages of a book, and read the stories you find there…if you dare.

“She who fights with monsters should see to it that, in the process, she does not in turn become a monster herself.”

When: May 16th, 2021

Time: 1pm-4pm. Cold readings and movement at 1pm, Dance auditions beginning at 2pm. Dance is optional.

Where: TBA (updates will be on the FB event)

Prepare: Nothing. Actors will be asked to do cold readings and movement. Please come dressed for movement. Dancers please come ready to dance.

Who is eligible: Incoming grade 3-outgoing grade 12; All schools, races, sexualities, identities. All are welcome.

Show Times: Rehearsals begin July 5th (M-F, 9am-2pm), with shows July 29th-Aug. 1st.

PLEASE NOTE: We have not yet determined if this show will have a live audience due to Covid-protocols. It is our hope to do so, however, the performance space if very, very small and we wish to accommodate all. Updates to come.

Price: Camp costs $200/child for the month. That being said, we want all kids to be able to enjoy theatre. If, for some reason, this price is not available to you, please contact us privately.

Questions can be sent to Caroline Stine: info@inboccaperformance.com

World Premiere, LIKE DEMONS on Nov. 22-25

IBP_Like Demons logoInBocca Performance is pleased to announce the World Premiere of LIKE DEMONS, a brand-new show from playwright Maggie Lou Rader and director Alice Flanders.

We’ve all learned in history class that the Civil War pitted brother against brother. This autumn, leave the history books behind and learn the untold real-life story of the women who hid their true selves and dressed like men to give their lives for their country and Eight for what they thought was right. Focusing on Sarah Emma Edmonds (Nurse and Spy in the Union Army,) playwright Maggie Lou Rader brings the same careful study to the women of the Civil War as she did to Mary Shelley in the Know Theatre’s 2018 hit production of Mary’s Monster.

Come join us for a swashbuckling, emotionally charged adventure you definitely didn’t learn about in high school! Starring eight Cincinnati favorites: Elizabeth Carman, Esther Cunningham, Hannah Gregory, Ashley Morton, Ryan-Chavez Richmond, Chaslee Schweitzer, Rory Sheridan, and Kate Stark.

LIKE DEMONS will run Friday, November 22nd through Monday, November 25th. All performances are at 7:30 P.M. at Leapin Lizard (724 Main St, Covington, KY 41011).

Tickets are $15, and the show is appropriate for most ages (please be advised there is light cursing and stylized depictions of war and violence.)

To order tickets, please visit inboccaperformance.com or follow the links

InBocca Performance utilizes experimental theatre methods to create devised works highlighting women specifically, which build actors’ craft and produce a unique experience for the audience; all under general direction from producer Caroline Stine.

History of the Company
InBocca Performance humbly began as the Cliffview Players in a basement in 1997 and became a main stage company in 2008. Notable past performances for the Ft. Thomas Community Theatre were Peter Pan in 2008 and Into the Woods in 2010. Artistic Director Caroline Stine began working with young actors to devise theatrical pieces in the summer of 2011 at The Village Players in Ft. Thomas, KY. In 2012, they created The Maid of Orleans, an emotionally charged production about Joan of Arc. The next year, they created Romeo y Margarita, a story that combined the lyricism of Shakespearean verse with the romance of the Spanish language. They then expanded to create art within greater Cincinnati, including a sellout production of Swan Lake: A Waking Dream at the
Southgate House Revival in 2015, followed by My Twisted Face at Cincinnati Fringe Festival. In 2016, InBocca performed at Cincy Fringe again with Charlie’s Girls, which built a script almost entirely from testimonies from the trials of the Charles Manson murders. In 2017, InBocca created ALICE, a dance/theatre sequel to Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland set in a Victorian asylum. Ms. Caroline Stine received her Bachelor degree from Butler University and her Masters in Contemporary Performance from Naropa University in Boulder, CO. She received theatrical training in Italy and Russia and participated in the Crisis Arts Festival in Arezzo, Italy. She is currently teaching at Northern Kentucky University and Notre Dame Academy.
