In its 2013-14 season, ETCETERA is dedicated to presenting and producing all original work by local artists. This is the second year for this collaboration between the UA Studio Series and Etcetera, the late-night arm of Live Theatre Workshop. Last year, the UA Studio Series’s student-created production of Ouroboros moved to Etcetera for encore performances. Through this collaboration, Etcetera Artistic Director Angela Horchem hopes to give performers the opportunity to learn how to adapt a show for different venues and to use audience feedback to strengthen a script before closing at one venue and opening at another. In addition, the artists will be paid for their original work by receiving a portion of the box office for each show!
Please support this collaboration and help these students learn to prepare for a tour of their original work. Join us at Etcetera!
The School of Theatre, Film & Television Studio Series is dedicated to supporting original and contemporary pieces of performance through a ‘bare essentials’ production format that draws primary focus to the artistic and intellectual labor of theatre students. Its community-centered, people generated approach to performance provides creative learning opportunities for student artists, thought-provoking experiences for audiences, and occasions for productive dialogue about topics relevant to student populations and the broader Tucson community.
Short Attention Span Theatre
ABOUT THE SHOW
SHORT ATTENTION SPAN THEATRE is an original, ensemble-written show featuring 30 short plays in 60 minutes. Based on The Neo-Futurists’ TOO MUCH LIGHT MAKES THE BABY GO BLIND, these performances will take place on the second and third Saturday nights of nearly every month throughout the 2013-2014 Etcetera season. Each show will be performed in an entirely new order, decided by the audience. Each month will feature new, original material.
Originally created in Fall 2011 at the University of Arizona, this revival of SHORT ATTENTION SPAN THEATRE pushes the boundaries of what a two-minute play can be. SAST involves a mixture of sketch comedy and devised work. The ensemble-written plays may be fiction or non-fiction, realist or abstract, movement-based or focused on spoken text. The only restriction upon the scripts is time. As a result, the show comments on current events, personal experiences, or any other pressing issues that the creators believe are important. SAST’s main goal is to explore theatrical expression within a time limit. Rather, we’re exploring 30 different theatre experiences within 60 minutes.
