Subject: [Puptcrit] Dharma Road September Newsletter

I am really proud to announce Dharma Road's Fall Performance Series at
CRS=2E I believe we have put together a really thrilling mix of clown &
cabaret, puppetry & postmodern dance, physical theatre and
improvisation=2E We've come a long way in one year at the Center for
Remembering & Sharing=2E To bring you 30 performances in three months is
no easy task=2E In fact, it's all come together miraculously almost of
its own accord=2E So many people come through our door and say, wow, the
energy here is so warm and supportive! So, I want to thank YOU for
contributing your energy=2E This is a humble, lo-fi performance space,
but we're elevating it into a truly magical home for movement artists,
an oasis=2E We invite you to come often and drink deeply=2E

RED BEADS, a gothic, coming-of-age fairy-tale/opera, investigates new
techniques in puppetry, using only wind to animate puppets, some of
which are transformed into luminous, quivering, ephemeral sets=2E It is a
poetic adaptation of an original story by Polina Klimovitskaya,
exploring the maturation of a young girl from child to woman, the
generational passage of power and sexuality=2E

The piece is set in turn-of-the-century New England using American
Surrealist imagery=2E The work explores the intersection of dance,
puppetry and opera with choreography based on the Japanese dance form
Ninjo Buryo=2E The dance is intricately linked with a new form of
puppetry using wind (high-powered fans) to create characters, as well
as time/space, by animating fabric=2E

Seven musicians (instruments include: oboe, harp, cello, keyboards,
violin & flute) accompany two sopranos and a baritone who sing the
libretto of the three characters: mother, daughter and father=2E

I'd also like to urge any of you with a passion for the art of
acting and/or for pyschology and eastern mysticism to check out one of
the New York appearances by my acting teacher John Osborne Hughes,
a director and producer from London=2E His combination of
psychospiritual healing and acting was one of the primary inspirations
for Dharma Road=2E

John Osborne Hughes, is coming to NYC  this fall to offer his course
"The Spiritual Psychology of Acting=2E"

John's course offers a unique approach to acting:  He helps us to
develop awareness (ability to observe our own thinking), and let go of
the thoughts that limit us in order to live freely in the present=2E Then
he offers how to apply that understanding to the art of acting=2E In
addition, students learn a practical technique of building a character,
based on  Stanislavsky=2E

He is holding two courses:

- Introductory Seminar
at The Open Center in Soho
Sept=2E 23rd (7-10 pm) $55
For more info, visit:

- a 3 day Workshop
at Where Eagles Dare
Oct=2E 14th, 15th, and 16th (Fri 4-11pm, Sat/Sun 11-6pm) $290

**If you attend the seminar and want to continue with the 3 day
workshop, the  cost of the seminar will be deducted from the workshop

** If you are planning to register for the 3 day workshop, it's
not necessary  to attend the seminar=2E

We are well on our way toward filling our Spring 2006 Performance

through the business or presenting your art, to come visit us at CRS=2E
