Creating new works of theatre means you gotta be flexible. Bendy like a young sapling full of potential and possibility just waiting for the blossoms of creativity and art to come bursting forth from wee twiggy appendages. So it's perfect that a bunch of gangly performers who can't even touch their toes are giving it their all to produce and perform Savage Umbrella's latest new work, These Are the Men.
We have been bending over backwards (literally) to make sure we're in shape to take on the uniquely physical vision that director and company member Blake E. Bolan has for our latest full production coming to the Southern Theatre as part of ArtShare.
Of course we'd be in a lot more danger of physical damage and exhaustion if it wasn't for our daily yoga warm-ups led by Jessica Spivey, our ever-loved stage manager and yoga-instructor-in-training.
There Are the Men opens March 14th as part of ArtShare at the Southern Theatre. Be sure to reserve your tickets here or become an ArtShare member and for $18 a month enjoy the flexibility of seeing great theatre whenever you feel like it.
We can't wait for you to join us under the umbrella! We'll be sure to bow extra deep (we've been practicing).
