"Flatline in Midair" (plus brunch!)

Shrewd Productions
To kick-off this year's Mi Casa Es Su Teatro, Shrewd Productions presents a delicious breakfast spread while audience members watch a story of suspended hope. Monika Bustamante's Flatline in Midair was an Austin Script Works Out of Ink production, and it is restaged here in a dilapidated, East Side, Depression-era home. Like the house itself, these characters need a little love, patience, and guidance -- but just imagine what they once were, and what they might still become. Capacity limited to 15 people.
1100 Angelina Street 78702 (in East Austin near downtown) Running time: One hour

"RADIO GHOSTS: an electro-theatre collaboration"

Greg Romero
A father tries to speak to his lost son through radio waves. A woman carrying a wool blanket appears and shatters the world. A physician tests his imagination with a patient who continually falls into fires. Using Electronic Voice Phenomenon as inspiration, Radio Ghosts is a multi-layered work that combines live performance and recorded sound, creating a real-time, performative conversation between what is live, what is electronically composed, and what is beyond our imagination. Originally commissioned by Austin Script Works.
