Seeking: Ensemble: 2 male identifying or nonbinary physical theater/actors/dancers who have experience with devised theater to update and remount The Wasteland this season will wrap up our two-year retrospective celebrating our 20th anniversary.
About the production: T.S. Eliot’s The Wasteland, has a cast of four illuminating “the lost generation” of post-WWI European society and the human soul’s search for redemption using Ellyzabeth Adler’s unique style of danztheatre that blends together dance, theatre, music and video imagery into a visceral theatre experience.
Written in a stream of consciousness, it seeks out what humans are looking for, a constant connection in life. Once we accept our future, there is an inner calming that happens to our soul. The poem was adapted to the stage in 2001 and started Chicago Danztheatre Ensemble. The Chicago Tribune wrote, “Adler gently joins artistic forces, even to the point of making the exposed-brick walls of the space speak with a wizened sense of melancholy. When the shadows of the four ensemble members unobtrusively get superimposed on, say an image of a dead tree facing a treacherous sea…conveys in a tactile, aesthetically gorgeous way, the mystical power of fragmented moments weaving through our minds.”
