Bird and the Two Ton Weight by Darcy Fowler, directed by Kareem Fahmy
When her mother’s long lost journal mysteriously shows up at the door, Chelsea meets a young woman she never knew. While they confront tragedies both big and small, Chelsea looks to her mother for a way to move forward. But is there more to her journal than meets the eye? THE BIRD AND THE TWO-TON WEIGHT is the story of what happens when past and present collide; a story of hope, possibility, and finding strength in the most unlikely of places.
In the possibly not so distant future, The Shift has left America has divided into two territories; one is governed by a set of liberal laws, the other, conservative. The central government now exists in an entirely neutral territory, known as The Middle. It is here that lawyers from opposite territories, and opposite sides of a terrorism case, are forced to re-evaluate their loyalties.
When you intern with The Tank, you gain REAL LIFE skills. Dev is helping us replace the drywall in the theater. We are a living, breathing theater and we always need help keeping it together in the theater and in the office. Click here to read more about our volunteer and internship programs.
"On/Off" is a collaboration between Holly Heidt (movement) and Asha Tamirisa (sound) with help from the dancers. The two became good friends and collaborators at Oberlin College and are delighted to continue working with each other. The piece is influenced by a joint fascination with minimalistic art (along the lines of Sol Lewitt and Ellsworth Kelly) and by simple actions and cycles in the physical world: clocks ticking, heartbeats, spilled water, waves. An endless factory line. Sysiphus carrying his rock up the hill again and again. Can certain experiences be seen as circles? Pendulums? Sine curves? These examples suggest a continuity, an alternation and repetition of elements. On the other hand, they may also suggest The End. Things and people come together and fall away. There is separation and loss. Things break down beyond repair.

"excerpt hearts" is a thought exploration of what the performers know of and have experienced of lesbian stereotypes. everything from the music we’re playing to the lyrics to the how we interact with each otherwill incorporate what we have pre-decided is somehow an abstractedstereotype of our lesbian past lives.
