Theater Channel (FPTC) celebrates its tenth anniversary with the
premiere of Dhalgren Sunrise, a multimedia performance art production,
that combines scripted text with elements of improvisation and audience
interaction. The script is based on
the highly acclaimed science fiction novel Dhalgren,
written by Samuel R. Delany, and described by writer William Gibson as "a
riddle that was never meant to be solved."
Dhalgren Sunrise is comprised of a Prelude and six short acts: Orchid, Moons, Fire, Sex, Scorpions, and Sunrise. Each act, approximately 10 minutes long, features a brief selection from the 800-page novel -- 300-500 words for each excerpt -- accompanied and interpreted by movement artists, interactive video, articulated stage effects, and improvisational music played on invented instruments.
For the Dhalgren Sunrise production, to be presented in Chelsea, FPTC received a Boston Foundation Live Arts Boston (LAB) grant.
