“aLL wRoNG”

Being wrong, making mistakes, failing over and over: this is the definition of being alive. Why are we embarrassed and fearful of the inevitability of our own fallibility? We might see instead that mankind’s biggest errors have led to the biggest discoveries. A series of vignettes in Treteau form, performers carry the audience through rapidly changing environments and stories in extremely confined space using their bodies and movement. Devised and directed by Joelle Worm, Kirk Thomsen, and Posy Knight.

What is Treteau form?

Treteau is a theatrical form that can be achieved without extraneous elements. From a French word for “platform,” treteaux consists of a small, 4 x 6 ft. stage on which four to seven actors are confined to perform, usually without set or proprs, condensing the elements of rhythm, space, gesture, and text.

PLEASE NOTE

This performance will be performed in multiple venues with different state times. Please pay special attention to the venue/time you plan to attend. This piece is structured with elements of improvisation making each show a unique experience. Check it out more than once!

Cambrian Description:
The “Cambrian Explosion” was a massive event in Earth’s evolutionary history, wherein life diversified dramatically and split into most of the phyla we see in the present day. Cambrian trace fossils act as the ghost of life’s activity over 500 million years ago. Cambrian,a sound and movement based performance, explores themes of life, evolution, and physical form. The performers isolate forms of their body and subsume materials in the space to alter their physicality and their environment. Set in a minimal achromatic setting; light, sound, and movement aim to capture the evolution from organic material to sentient life. The show explores the interdependence of life and solid earth while inviting audiences to think about the current state of humanity in the Anthropocene. Will we innovate and ensure a future for our species or are we destined become a fossilized curiosity like life in the Cambrian?

CPM Season 3 Pitch Event

Have a new and exciting production you’ve been burning to see become a reality? You are cordially invited to join Cooperative Performance Milwaukee and bring your creativity to the stage for our 2016/2017 season pitch night. Your creativity and ingenuity are what will take our organization to new heights in our highly anticipated third season. Come join us on Friday January 22nd at 6:00pm at the Riverwest Public House and present your vision for a work of art as we look to take our Cooperative to new artistic heights!

Please complete the attached paperwork and email back before January 15th. Powerpoints or any supplemental pitch necessities should be sent to me no later than January 18th.

What Do We Want To Produce?

Top-quality, professional productions of new performance art.  Scripts reimagined and remixed.  Barriers bent and broken between “theatre,” “dance,” and “music.”  New technologies incorporated into rehearsal and performance.  Projects that veer from the standard model and teach us something about performance and its practices.  A multitude of things that we haven’t imagined, but someone else has.  The possibilities are literally endless.

The Pitch

Presentations can be no longer than 6 minutes. Time will be kept, and each presenter will receive a 3 minute, 1 minute, and 30 second warning. Regardless of length of presentation, there will be a q&a session following each presentation that will be cut off after 4 minutes. Thus, total length of each pitch is 10 minutes max. Presentation order will be determined by lottery among those desiring to make a pitch.

Resources

A computer will be provided with a projector & speakers connected to it. All media must be in basic format (like ppt). Presentations should include proposed budget, performance space, number of people on the production team (including cast size) and description of the project.

Thank you all for your continued participation and support. We can’t wait to see what you propose!

Kevin Wleklinski
