THE ANNEX THEATER 2010 WESTERN TOUR DRAW NIGH
The Baltimore Annex Theater Inc. rends asunder the notion of theater from its warehouse apartment location in Baltimore, Maryland. With a core team of nine steady members who live and work in this seething artistic womb, plus hoards of friends and volunteers, the Annex has, for the last three years, been producing and hosting multitudinous performances that span time and culture: from psychedelic film homage Fantastic Planet (2010) to classics Rhinoceros (2008) and Dr. Faustus (2009), to tragic Noh Matsu Kaze (2009), and original works by their own members and friends. They surprised and delighted the eastern half of the United States in 2009 with an original based on the classic poem Beowulf, a complete world hatched from one mini-van thriving with monsters, heroes, and triumph over the void.
This fall, the team is bigger, the tour is bigger, the van is slightly bigger, and the vision is expansive. “A Fistful of Flowers” takes its audience to the prismatic land of saguaros with an immersive, sprawling stage and cracked Western characters. And, as the Annex is a collective of individual artists, each show may feature a roulette of solo acts including epic poetry, enormous pom winding, and throat-singing.
Always seeking adventure in new realities, Baltimore Annex Theater is Going West.
