Cloud 9

By Caryl Churchill
Iron Crow Theatre
January 26 – February 4

A comedy of manners that spans centuries, Cloud 9 is a smart, satirical look at gender politics and sexual oppression across the ages. Written in 1978, this modern classic offers witty social commentary, controversial casting requirements, and if that weren’t enough, time-travel! Taking us from the corsets of colonial Africa to the sexual liberation of 1970’s England, Churchill’s parody pokes fun at nearly every permutation of human sexuality, and reminds us why the playwright remains a feminist hero and icon today.

Please note that Cloud 9 explores mature themes, contains adult language, sexual content and violence, and may not be suitable for patrons under the age of 18.

Inspired by true events, this empowering coming of age story follows Bernadette as she conjures love, purpose, and hope from a barren landscape.

Drawing the Universe

BlueShift Dance
March 23

See three dance companies perform in Drawing the Universe, featuring works from the Baltimore DC Metro area.

BlueShift Dance is joined by two guest artists: LucidBeings Dance, of Ellicott City, and SylviDances, from D.C. Each company explores the stuff we’re made of, from the subatomic, to the emotional, to the political, to the global, to the universal.

In its premiere, BlueShift Dance’s Reclamation explores Earth’s seemingly angry nature, in the wake of devastating hurricanes, floods, fires, and mudslides. Is our beautiful planet trying to reclaim her territory from humankind?

Donations will be collected to benefit victims of natural disasters, past and current, here: https://www.directrelief.org/emergency/ At each performance, BlueShift Dance will facilitate donations via cash, check, and credit card. Please consider giving.

“Even with all our technology and the inventions that make modern life so much easier than it once was, it takes just one big natural disaster to wipe all that away and remind us that, here on Earth, we’re still at the mercy of nature.” – Neil deGrasse Tyson

In addition to the performances, BlueShift Dance is offering workshops in Fosse, Forsythe, and Modern Technique. These master classes are only $10 each! Find more information at https://blueshift.dance/workshops/

Corpus Christi

By Terrence McNally
Iron Crow Theatre
April 6 – 15


“We are going to tell you an old and familiar story.”

Born in Corpus Christi, Texas in the 1950s, Joshua is a gay man who also happens to be the son of God. Terrence McNally’s contentious work is a modern queer retelling of the gospels depicting Jesus and the Apostles as gay men living in modern-day Texas. Known as the queer passion play, Corpus Christi follows Joshua from his birth in a seedy motel room to his senior prom, from gay disco to death by crucifixion. Often called blasphemous by religious protesters, this controversial play thoughtfully re-frames the identity of the Christ figure while unpacking his essential lessons of love and faith.

Of Special Note: Premiering in New York City in 1998, The New York Times published an article linking the uproar in response to the production to the death of gay University of Wyoming student Matthew Shepard. Matthew Shepard’s death inspired the creation of The Laramie Project to be produced by Iron Crow Theatre in June of 2018.

Please note that Corpus Christi explores mature themes, contains adult language, sexual content and violence, and may not be suitable for patrons under the age of 18.

SENSES

A broadly accessible dance performance

The Collective
April 19 – 22

The Collective has created a welcoming environment for experiencing dance as an every body experience through their newest creation and premier of SENSES. The work produced for SENSES provides multiple points of entry through a variety of sensory experiences paired with dance. Senses such as touch, taste, smell will be incorporated throughout the performance in an attempt to shift the perception of who dances and how dance is experienced.

NOTE: A sign language interpreter will translate both performances of SENSES.

In addition to SENSES, The Collective will host a series of Open Marleys, on Thursday, April 19 (Artist Edition) and Saturday, April 22 (Open Call.) Similar to an “open mic night”, the performance space will be open for choreographers to show work or work-in-progress with feedback from the audience facilitated and encouraged.

The Collective, Baltimore’s hub for professional dancers and choreographers, is a non-profit organization based in Baltimore City and home for seventeen dance artists who gather to create new work and promote dance as an art form. The Collective is in residence at the Bryn Mawr School where the company offers bi-weekly, open to the public dance classes for pre-professional students and adult movers. The Collective is currently co-directed by Alyson Jacques and Sonia Synkowski.

For more information about The Collective, visit www.collective-dance.com.

The Laramie Project

By Moisés Kaufman
Iron Crow Theatre
June 15 – 24


In October 1998, a twenty-one-year-old openly gay student at the University of Wyoming was kidnapped, beaten, tortured, and left to die – tied to a fence in the middle of a prairie outside Laramie, Wyoming simply for being gay. His name was Matthew Shepard. Shepard’s murder brought national and international attention to the lack of hate crime legislation across the nation and forced a small community to wrestle with it’s identity on both the local and national levels. In this groundbreaking docudrama, Moisés Kaufman and members of the Tectonic Theater Project capture the human voice of Laramie.

With just 8 actors playing over 60 roles, The Laramie Project weaves together interviews, journal entries, and published news reports to create a breathtaking theatrical collage exploring the depths to which humanity can sink and the heights of compassion of which we are capable.

Please note that The Laramie Project explores mature themes, contains adult language, and the graphic re-telling of violence, and may not be suitable for patrons under the age of 16.
