The Bridge Production Group presents a new and loose adaptation of Henrik Ibsen's classic drama 'Hedda Gabler.'

... Read more

Returning to Norway from a three-month honeymoon abroad, Hedda finds herself trapped in an unfurnished house with her uninspiring and academic husband. Trapped by moving boxes. Trapped by talks of academia. Trapped. The sudden inflow of guests and ghosts from the past provide Hedda the opportunity to stir the pot, creating some brief diversions to pass the time. As her actions continue to alter the lives of those around her, Hedda propels herself closer and closer to the brink of insanity. 'Hedda' is part of The Bridge's month-long residency at The Robert Moss Theatre, and is performed in rotating repertory with 'Red Light Winter' and 'The Sonnets.'

UnionDocs presents Alison S.M. Kobayashi's multi-media solo piece inspired by an amateur audio recording made over 60 years ago.

... Read more

The origin of this audio was a mystery. Two spools of thin steel wire were found tucked inside an obsolete sound device purchased by a collector at an estate sale. There were no labels; no dates, no names, and no context. Through her obsessive research and active imagination, Kobayashi decodes the rich dialogue in the recording and discovers the detailed history of a Jewish family from New York that bursts with humor, surprise, and drama. The one-woman show annotates, illustrates, and reconstructs the scenes of the recording, while revealing the stranger-than-fiction biography of the eldest son, David, who made the wire recordings. Using video, installation, performance and plentiful archival material, Kobayashi leads the audience through a close listening of this multigenerational tale.
