Connectedness and conflict. Discourse and acceptance. Felting Tides looks at the intersections of where our individual orbits connect, diverge and then meet again. Eilers and Lashbrook measure the width of differences and intimacies of similarities between them. Where is there a dissonant distance? Where are we inherently harmonious? “Felting” is the act of consolidation of fibrous materials by the application of heat, moisture, and mechanical action causing the interlocking, or matting, of fibres; an apt description of our interwoven lives. “Tides” is the alternate rising and falling of the sea, due to the attraction of the moon. Eilers and Lashbrook animate the meaning of these words and vulnerably bare the physicalization of their relationship to one another.
Optional Described Video available.
Performance #2 – It Happened During The Quarantine (a staged reading) by Third Wheel Theatre Co.
Written & Directed by Henrique Santsper
Stage Manager: Cheska Libao
Cast: Jordan M. Burns, Daniel Sutherland, Justin Tobiere-Coach, Sarah Hagarty, and Jessica Rose
The year is 2020. A new decade, full of hope and dreams starts. Then, the pandemic hits.
A disease that started in a far-away country; a virus that was believed to never travel that far; someone else’s problem… It became very clearly, and extremely fast, everyone’s business and concern.
During the first lockdown, so many stories were created. Couples who were seen as perfect, broke up. LGBTQ+ youth had to stay in with conservative parents. Families were physically distanced, yet, brought closer together. The whole world was taught that no matter where we are, we are all in this together.
It may sound unrealistic or untrue, but I guarantee: it all happened during the quarantine.
This staged reading features excerpts from the full play.
Closed captions and ASL interpretation options available.
