Rehearsal feature 2012:
  • September 3, 2012 — Faceless
    • Active Cultures invites you to a behind the scenes glimpse into how our work takes shape. Watch director Lee Mikeska Gardner work through scenes. Observe an extraordinary company of seasoned performers — Ariana Almajan, Manu H. Kumasi, Meredith Richard, and Alison Talvacchio — as they explore the text. Eavesdrop on conversations between actors, the director and the playwright Mary Resing. Afterwards, join in a lively conversation about the production. If you have a great idea, let us know. Our audience helps us create our work. Hunker down with this rare opportunity for behind-the-scenes engagement with an ascendant young company celebrated for its bold approach to creating locally specific work. The script we will be working on, Faceless, is a gothic ghost story set at the HayAdams Hotel in the middle of a snow storm. Faceless will be performed in a gutted building in Riverdale Park, Maryland in October 2012 as part of HellSpawn II: Black Aggie speaks.
