Chicago ensemble (re)discover theatre presents FLESH AND BONE at St. Lou Fringe
(re)discover theatre, a Chicago based ensemble who tackles devised work and language plays with a focus on text, skill, relationship, and discovery, brings their newest project, FLESH AND BONE, to the St. Lou Fringe. (re)discover theatre has been hailed as “shocking, sexy, and haunting” by the Chicago Reader, and “inventive and authentic” by Chicago Theater Beat. The not-to-be-missed production explores the inundation of unrealistic body standards and blatant sexuality presented by the American media and its impact on society. Tickets are $10, plus fringe button. Tickets can be purchased through St. Lou Fringe or at the door (cash only). Thur June 21 10:00 pm / Fri June 22 7:00 pm / Sat June 23 4:00 pm / Sun June 24 1:00 pm . At The Kranzberg Cabaret 501 N. Grand Blvd., St. Louis, MO 63108.
Chicago Critic warns, "Let it be known that there is another young, hungry troupe in town." Following hot on the heels of their well-received productions, An Evening of Beckett and The Tragedie of Hamlet: Prince of Denmarke, (re)discover theatre premiers their newest venture at the St. Lou Fringe.
The piece is written and conceived by Jessica Shoemaker, who explains, “FLESH AND BONE was prompted by my own frustration at watching beautiful girls and women in my life find themselves lacking. We thought it was really important to bring a male perspective onto the team, and that has been incredibly eye opening. It’s extremely pervasive.” Though the piece is rooted in social observation, Shoemaker emphasized, “The show is visceral, edgy, physical. Definitely not for children.”
The members of the (re)discover ensemble bringing you Flesh & Bone are all Webster Conservatory graduates, and are thrilled to bring their work “back home”.
FLESH AND BONE is: Sexuality. Body Image. American media. A fresh and humorous exploration of the issue that lives in ads and breathes in us. A show. A demonstration. A call to arms.
