Shakespear​e in Detroit Reimagines The Bard’s Antony & Cleopatra at Recycle Here March 15, 2014 #Detroit @detroitsamwhite

For Immediate Release                              February 27, 2014                                                
                                                                
Shakespeare in Detroit Reimagines The Bard’s Antony and Cleopatra
Pop-up theater company presents its sophomore production in New Center’s Recycle Here
DETROIT — After a successful debut presentation at Grand Circus Park last summer, Shakespeare in Detroit (SiD) will present its second production, Antony and Cleopatra, at Recycle Here in New Center.
The uniqueness of the facility inspired the concept for SiD’s site-specific Antony and Cleopatra.
Recycle Here provides drop-off recycling services in the city of Detroit. It is also an artist’s village with murals painted on the walls throughout the facility and an art park just around the corner.
“I saw a performance at the recycling center and I was really inspired by the aesthetic and Matt Naimi – a great advocate for art here in the city,” says SiD’s Artistic Director and Founder, Sam White. “It’s an epic-sized space with a really interesting visual quality that’s perfect for reimagining Rome and Egypt.”
SiD’s venue for their upcoming production also inspired unique costumes with many of them, along with several set pieces and props, made from recycled materials.
The costumes were created by local costume designer Cal Schwartz.
Antony and Cleopatra is sponsored by The Whitney and Midtown Detroit, Inc. who are providing heating components for the industrial space and Sit On It Detroit who are donating a portion of the seating for the theater’s patrons.
“Our sophomore production is truly a grassroots project with elements of the show provided by local organizations, our unique venue and many of our friends, family and community members helping make this show possible,” says White.
Antony and Cleopatra is directed by Detroit-resident Kyle Grant.
Showtimes for Antony and Cleopatra are Saturday, March 15 at 7 p.m.; Sunday, March 16 at 3 p.m.; Friday, March 21 at 7 p.m.; Saturday, March 22 at 7 p.m. at 1331 Holden St. in Detroit. Attendees are asked to pay a strongly suggested minimum donation of $10 for entry. Find us on Facebook and signup for updates at ShakespeareinDetroit.com.

PH.313.310.1830
 
Note: Parking is located on both Lincoln and Holden. There will be heating for the show, however, audience members are advised to dress warmly and comfortably to accommodate the warehouse environment.
 
Shakespeare in Detroit made its debut at Grand Circus Park in August 2013 during a one-night-only performance of Othello. The history-making performance included a cast of all local actors with attendance reaching approximately 500 Detroiters. The company was founded by Detroit native Samantha White.

Big news! Big change! frm @LiteraryDetroit Trinosophes, Wed, June 25, 7-9pm. Free & awesome

We’ve got an amazing new location for tomorrow’s big event: storytelling and song with the Rust Belt Rising crew is hitting Trinosophes TOMORROW, Wednesday, June 25, 7-9pm. Free, and awesome. See you there!

Call it good old-fashioned Midwestern storytelling… with a kick.

Nic Esposito of The Head & The Hand Press is hitting the road with Philadelphia musician Todd Henkin from the band The Great Unknown for a series of performance-based storytelling and song showcasing the fascinating stories collected in The Rust Belt Rising Almanac. When this a-typical book talk comes to Detroit, we’re spotlighting Marissa Johnson-Valenzuela’s story on adapting to Detroit through the community in collective housing, as well as a micro-fiction piece about Hitsville, USA, and art inspired by recycled objects from Detroit artist Cindy LaFerle.

The Head & The Hand Press, a craft publisher in Philadelphia, is bringing this show to the city with the support of Literary Detroit.

The Rust Belt Rising Almanac is a collection of snapshots and stories from writers and artists in America’s Rust Belt Cities: escapes, remains, and models of growth. You’ll learn about projects that are working & the people who aren’t, find a road map for wandering, and green your thumb with an industrial soil-strength planting guide. The almanac may not serve strictly as a meteorological or agricultural guide, but it will help to measure the kind of atmospheric pressure felt between jobs, between communities, between the friends who are still here and the ones not so lucky, bound together by a common question: what’s next for the rust belt?
