Antigonick & The Fragments of Sappho - Taffety Punk

Taffety Punk Theatre Company
presents a double header of Greek classics

Antigonick
Sophokles, translated by Anne Carson
directed by Kelsey Mesa

and

The Fragments of Sappho
a new dance by Katie Sopoci Drake
with text translated by Anne Carson


ANTIGONICK: The original hero of silenced women, Antigone, stands against tyranny and injustice through her words and deeds. In this new telling of Sophokles' classic tale, poet and translator Anne Carson presents an Antigone both inspiring and contemporary. With rich poetic language driving the action, Taffety Punk presents this epic story with an ensemble of actors, dancers, and musicians.  

Directed by company member Kelsey Mesa

Featuring Lilian Oben as Antigone, with company members Dan Crane and Esther Williamson, and guest artists Danny Puente Cackley, Louis E. Davis, Katie Murphy, Rachel Felstein & Teresa Spencer



THE FRAGMENTS OF SAPPHO: Starting with Anne Carson's unparalleled translation of all that remains of Sappho's poetry, choreograper Katie Sopoci Drake and director Marcus Kyd lead an ensemble of dancers, actors, and musicians to explore the tension of loss and signal decay through what has been found.


This double-header will occupy 90 minutes of show time.

May 22 - June 8, 2019
at the Capitol Hill Arts Workshop
545 7th Street SE
Washington, DC 20003

directed by Kelsey Mesa

and

The Fragments of Sappho
a new dance by Katie Sopoci Drake

Cyanotype Workshop

Saturday, June 1
9:30am-12:30pm
$20 pp
Join us at CHAW for a special Cyanotype Workshop to learn about the cyanotype process from CHAW teaching artist and photography department chair Katherine Akey. The workshop will delve into the method of photographic printing developed in the mid-1800s – a method which produces a beautiful cyan-blue print. Originally used to reproduce notes or blueprints, the process was quickly adapted to print silhouettes of objects, stencils, and negatives. Participants will have all supplies provided to produce three 6"x9" prints on watercolor paper and are encouraged to bring some additional materials to print on, if they'd like! Any organic material will work -- including cotton tote bags, silk scarves, etc. We recommend tan, cream, or white color surfaces for best results. Participants are also encouraged to bring black and white negatives, stencils, flowers, and other objects to use to create their prints. Inspiration can be found here! Call (202) 547-6839 to sign up!
