DEVELOPING audiences with the ability to think critically.

Lovebirds by Marga Gomez & JARMAN (All this Maddening Beauty), by Caridad Svich performed by John Moletress for force/collision

Saturday, May 9th – double bill at The Colony Theater (1040 Lincoln Road, Miami Beach):

8:00 PM Lovebirds by Marga Gomez

~ Lovebirds by Marga Gomez In her tenth solo play, GLAAD award winning comic performer Marga Gomez portrays a crew of incurable romantics as they chase their passions  – into the night, through decades, and to absurd lengths in Greenwich Village. Orestes, a macho maitre d' is infatuated with a tin-eared singer married to an academic who never sleeps and is never awake. On the other side of town Orestes's daughter cuts off her hair, joins a coven, and starts dating the captain of a women's football team. Weaving through the action is Polaroid Phillie, an ageless LSD fueled nightclub photographer and fixture at gay bars, Spanish restaurants, street corners and wherever sparks fly.

 

“Hilariously etched characters in an intricate web of love, longing and life. It’s fast. It’s fun. It’s thought – provoking.” San Francisco Chronicle

9:30 PM JARMAN (All this Maddening Beauty), by Caridad Svich performed by John Moletress for force/collision

~ JARMAN (All this Maddening Beauty) is a performative gesture inspired by iconic queer artist, filmmaker, and gardener Derek Jarman. Temporal orientations arise and fall away as one performer in space traces the origins of Derek Jarman’s brilliant queerness. Merging landscapes of text, video and live performance, JARMAN orientates itself to both present and past, gazing upon the icon through imagined territories and constructed spaces, making room for the possibility of a conversation across time. Performed by force/collision’s Founding Director John Moletress with a text by OBIE Lifetime Achievement Award-winning playwright Caridad Svich, JARMAN is a transatlantic flight through memory and time.
