Plan-B Theatre Presents: BORDERLANDS

Plan-B Theatre Presents: BORDERLANDS A world premiere by Eric Samuelsen March 31-April 10 at the Studio Theatre, Rose Wagner.

Plan B Theatre presents Boarderland, Studio Theatre, Rose Wagner, Salt Lake City, UtahBORDERLANDS is about coming out—stepping forward, admitting who you are, telling the uncomfortable.

From the playwright: I wrote a play about coming out. Not just coming out in the usual sense—in fact, in BORDERLANDS, the one gay character is already out. It’s a play about all the other ways we come out as Mormons, about admitting that we don’t necessarily believe what we’re supposed to believe, or that we don’t always find it possible to live the way we’re expected to live. It’s a play about moments of unanticipated honesty, and the revelations that result. And it’s a play about the hard work of carving out a social space for those for whom none exists in our culture. So the characters in this play sit in an honesty car, and tell the truth about what liars they are. Because they’re Mormons, they’re much harsher in their self-judgments than they really need to be. And that pressure to conform blinds them to people who really are genuinely suffering. Finally, one young man finds a way to actually be what the other characters profess to be.

How Charette Works

Audience goes immediately to the theatre for introductions to 5 pre-selected alumni choreographers and for the rehearsed performance.

Five choreographers are given “secret ingredients” that they must use in each composition.

RDT’s 9 professional dancers and 30 gifted community dancers are divided between the choreographers and are sent to one of the 5 studios to create their work.

Charette guests (the audience) eat, drink, and merrily wander between the party and the studios where dance is being created. Guests are invited to “bribe” the judges to vote for their favorite choreographer with RDT Funny Money.

After an hour everyone returns to the theatre to see the newly created dances, vote for their favorite, and see who winsthe title of RDT’s “Iron Choreographer” for 2011!
