Beyond The Wound Is A Portal — Directed by Mohr Visiting Artist Haruna Lee — is an invocation and live performance that utilizes video and 3D-digital design to create multi-dimensional portals into worlds that circle away and back again around this prompt: “Dream Beyond the Wounds” (Brown). In conversation with the landscapes of Bachelard’s Poetics of Space, we will think of the ‘Wound’ and the ‘Dream’ as physical and psychic locations to explore, weaving original material inspired by images, letters, memories, and visions of our past, present, and future selves that both honor our wounds and dare to look beyond them. We will create original music & song, choreography that’s both for our physical bodies and our digital avatars, and invest in a social, interactive ritual that will guide the audience through these uncharted portals.
Those interested in innovating, engaging with a live theater process for digital space, and exercising their artistic voice and power through playwriting, devising, and collaboration are highly encouraged to audition. We are looking for performers who are collaborators first and foremost; who are drawn to creating new works of theater and are committed to a creative process that will integrate live performance with digital realms. We are particularly interested in folks who consider themselves dreamers, innovators, resisters, healers, guides, and disruptors. We invite those who love to sing, move, perform, and create, and find joy and pleasure in sharing themselves and their artistic practice with and for a community.
Stanford TAPS seeks to build a diverse cast for this production and encourages members of any race, gender identity, and ability to audition. If any accessibility accommodations are needed please email email@example.com for assistance.
