Program Description:
This production is being developed in the vein of two Santa Fe community events produced in 2017: “Fierce Feminine Risings,” created by an all female-identified cast, and "Mantality,” created by an all male-identified cast (more info on Facebook Group).  We envision an integrated program of short solo and group performance pieces involving dance, theatrical performance, spoken word and music by men and woman that express journeys towards wholeness through the morass of misunderstandings and conditioning around masculine and feminine energetics and expressions in our world and inspire a full spectrum of emotional response. We are seeking performers and content creators from diverse cultural and racial backgrounds as well as a variety of ages and life experiences.

Throughout this collaboration, we aspire to facilitate a creative process that maintains curious, respectful and inclusive attitudes and seeks to reconcile any discord and unhealed personal issues that arise. We also wish to further the show's intention of catalyzing personal insights around these issues within our audience by inviting community members to join us on the weekend following the performances for an exploratory program of interactive processes to support their healing and reconciliation.

We look forward to hearing from you regarding participation and please join our email list (contact Tyler) and Facebook Group (see link below) to stay informed about program developments and get connected with other participants.

PAST Audition: The Sweetest Swing in Baseball

By Rebecca Gilman
Directed by Janet Davidson
Red Thread Santa Fe/For Giving Productions

This is a new play that is best quantified as a black comedy. It has nothing to do with baseball, as far as a sport: Dana’s last art showing was less than successful and her long-time boyfriend (Roy) is leaving her. The pressure of the commercial art world gets to her and after an unsuccessful attempt at suicide she ends up in a county mental hospital, where insurance will only pay for one week. How can she create an extended stay?
