Liminal, Portland’s boldest theatre company returns this summer to present a new, original performance work, the evening with the photograph. Having fast gained a reputation for resisting the hegemony of theatre and performance practice, Liminal continues their dialectic with this new production.
Continuing Liminal’s exploration of synthetic theatre, the evening with the photograph is an intriguing and ever-changing mystery that explores five characters trapped in various parallel worlds made by Dr. Saxe, a scientist living on the border between genius and insanity. When his experiments go awry, we are led along a course of events that cause us to question the nature of gesture and performance and the point at which the virtual, or the performed, becomes real. The random nature of sequencing within the show (or metaphorically, the dance along the artery) means that each night is a truly unique experience, with an outcome that is never fully predictable.
The Evening with the Photograph brings together Liminal’s usual stable of talent. Bryan Markovitz writes, directs, and adapts, Amanda Boekelheide directs movement, John Berendzen designs sound, Trent Moore designs set and lights, Julie Burtis designs costumes, and Liminal’s regular company members make up the cast.
Everything is ready for Liminal’s irreverent blend of dream, desire and chaos. This summer, the evening with the photograph promises to be a must-see event. See it before it disappears.
