Hearty greetings to all, from Cloud of Fools Theater Company!
The time has come for the BIG announcement—
We are mounting our 5th original theatrical production:
We're so excited --
This daring dance-theater piece will play from March 2-12, 2017 at Access Theater in downtown Manhattan. Pin your maps, and mark your calendars!
DARK EYES is a Gothic-style folktale, with a brutal edge and a beating heart. In 1700's Europe, a young boy with more to lose than he thinks, goes looking for adventure in the Naha'drash, a forbidden wood. Charting the journey of an innocent into the unknown, he encounters men and women who are not what they seem—though perhaps there is one among them keeping a sharp eye on his soul... DARK EYES is a magically wild dance-theater play overflowing with imaginative storytelling, exuberant physicality, and devilish humor.
Written by Cloud of Fools’ Director of Development, Rachel Kodweis, DARK EYES enters new stylistic waters, following the previous successes of The Whistling Mortician, Europa, All That Dies and Rises (co-produced with M-34), and most recently, the one-woman tour-de-force, Soo Jin Pretty Nail.
Performing in DARK EYES will be long-time company-members, some of our newest company members, as well as a first-time collaboration with students from Pace University. We're thrilled to be working with such a depth of talent.
And last (but far from least), DARK EYES will be the directorial debut of Cloud of Fools co-founder Laura Butler Rivera. Hot off of One Eighth Theater Company's widely acclaimed production of The Maids at INTAR Theater, Laura is best known for fusing rigorous, dynamic, powerful ensemble-work with an unparalleled sensitivity to the inner movements of human interaction.
So again—mark your calendars, and until then, keep your eyes peeled for more info, updates, and other cool ways to be involved.
