Event Description

Hi all! Restraints- my alternative theater piece is back for a very brief run at Charlestown Working Theater next week. It is paired with a one-act by my Polish theater friends who helped me develop Restraints. I have been working hard on the show. Training and working out - it is VERY physical. Would love to see my storytelling buddies there. Description is below:
Restraints and Passages
Two Unique Performances ~ One Soulful Evening
This double-bill offers a rare opportunity to see three international theatre artists in a richly imaginative evening of theater. Jola Cynkutis of Poland, Khalid Tyabji of India and Diane Edgecomb of Boston will present two one-act pieces strongly influenced by Zbigniew Cynkutis, one of the principal members of Grotowski's Teatr Laboratorium of Poland. The Teatr Laboratorium created a revolution in theatre by eschewing narrative text and scenic elements in favor of startling physical and vocal imagery rooted in the actor's psyche. Through evocative images, movement, text and songs Restraints and Passages enchant and challenge audiences while exploring universal themes.
"Restraints swings soundly into the next world. ... Edgecomb's juxtapositions prove inspired; she's aware that fairy tales, the gospels and great drama all come from the same tormented place."
- Boston Globe
