talks about her various roles in The Service Road
“It's really exciting for me to be working in such a variety of mediums in
new and challenging ways with such a fantastic team of artists! I've never
performed Foley before and it has been so much fun to discover how to create the
sonic texture of the play with Mark. I've also really enjoyed figuring out
marionette style puppets with the Ghost Dog, as most of my puppetry experience has
been with other styles of puppets. With any puppet, as I suppose you could
say with any character, the challenge is to figure out what makes it come to life
and its vocabulary, both physical and sonic, consists of. I love trying to
figure out the technical side of this puzzle-the balance between troubleshooting
the physical engineering of the object and my performance is always tremendously
exciting for me: where is the construction of an object hindering it's
performative life and where is the performative life activated by the puppeteer of
an object? And learning how to make the Big Headed Toddler's limbs engage
with Caroline was fantastic! The whole team is full of curious, inquisitive
and hugely talented people, so it has been a wonderful experience to join the process
and play with everyone!.”
Adhesive Theater Project is celebrating its second decade of binding
the arts through the bonds of collaboration.
We are dedicated to working with artists in a broad
range of fields – from fashion designers to scientists, illustrators to
engineers – to create experimental, multidisciplinary work. By
challenging these artists to work in the theater we create new perspectives
for live performance. By integrating live music,
visual arts, and technological innovations with metaphor and narrative
storytelling we create epic experiences that excite the audience's imagination.
