PERVERSION INCOGNITO
8pm APRIL 16 & 17, 2004
Price: $15
Information and tickets: 401-831-9479
This rousing musical comedy is the portrait of a curious mind that is rendered mildly corrupt by pitfalls of misinformation. Originally performed to enthusiastic crowds in New York City at Catch a Rising Star and the Westbank Theater, Perversion Incognito is Elizabeth Anne Keiser's tribute to heroic teachers and parents who, try as they might, are not always able to prevent a child's mind from creating its own accidental reality. The piece stems partly from Keiser's experience working in schools across Rhode Island, and it is an updated version of the performance that was most recently featured locally at Stitches Komedy Kafe.

Ponder Me, five works exploring survival through physicality and gutsy determination. Of these , the premiere of Evenhanded communicates the possibilities of transforming a limitation into an advantage.

Whisper Into the Glass by guest choreographer Kelli Wicke Davis, with original score by NYC composer, Marty Beller, and performance by Rocha - Traveling through a raw and emotional journey, this primal and intensely physical dance gives all and more to the viewer.

Alec K. Redfearn
Intended as a eulogy for deceased friends, IATRATL is a new 6-song cycle composed by Redfearn for his ever-evolving outfit, The Eyesores. Performed with an expansive 13-piece group, the songs playfully flirt with minimalism, Weimar-style cabaret music, baroque-pop, and feature layers of text and vocal melodies, all thematically linked to regions of God, ghosts and guilt.
