DAUGHTER OF RE

By: Brian Christensen

Streaming On Demand

June 30th-July 3rd

Daughter of Re is the true story of Hatshepsut, Egypt’s first successful Pharaoh. Through incredible political and religious maneuvering, she led a thriving nation for over 20 years, and yet for thousands of years nobody remembered her name or her accomplishments. After her death, her unusual kingship was erased from the historical records, her statues smashed, her name chiseled off her monuments. She had defied the patriarchy, succeeded in saving and strengthening the fragile 18th Dynasty (which would go on to produce Tutankhamen), and in return she was forgotten. Until now.

FANNA FI HAYATI: LOVE, SEX WORK, AND THE SACRED

By: Avery Grace

Streaming On Demand

June 30th-July 3rd

Synopsis: Fanna fi Hayati: Love, Sex Work, and the Sacred, is a full-length play based on a true story that follows the relationship between Dani and Farzin—a trans woman and an Iranian-Sufi academic—as the two endeavor to maintain an allowing and affirming relationship as Dani transitions into professional sex work. Their connection is tested as each strives to face their own limitations and to be self-honoring while honoring the other amidst their own internalized prejudices and stigma. Works by famous Sufi poets such as Rumi and Hafiz and original poetry drive the plot forward in a celebration of the sacredness of sex work and the intersection of sexuality and spirituality. The play breaks the 4th wall by requiring the audience to vote between two potential endings and to face their beliefs and fears about relationships and love.

THE LANTERN BEARERS

By: Marc Aronoff

Streaming On Demand

June 30th-July 3rd

In The Lantern Bearers, Marc Aronoff tells the story of the first two people on Earth and the “games” they play revealing a modern parable that speaks to the human desire for change and the fears of stepping into an uncertain future.  Described as “poignant and potent,” the drama examines our need to control; never “at home”, always moving, never in harmony with ourselves, and the essential question- how do we keep our “inner-light” shinning in the face of adversity.  Here, performed in Italian, the power and pathos of the visual interpretation transcends language and speaks to a universal cause.   The play may also be read in English at www.thelanternbearers.org  (Running time:  45 minutes).

THE MAGICAL LYING HOUR

By: Aaron Garrett

Streaming On Demand

June 30th-July 3rd

An actor prepares and an improviser germinates. These two disciplines influence each other, but rarely blend until now. Magical Lying Hour is a stage show that pairs an actor performing her lines, drawn from contemporary plays, with an improviser making his up to create something which is often funny, frequently tender, and always unique.  Over the last eight years Magical Lying Hour has entertained audiences across the country with this kind of performance.


In this short film they take their form to the logical extreme: after performing a scene as usual they take the improvised lines, give them to a new actor and repeat the process again! With an international cast Magical Lying Hour seeks to tease out meaning from chaos, teamwork from disunity, and comedy from the self-serious.
