The Pink Tablet at CMTV14
February 9, 2018 @ 7:00 PM - 9:30 PM
An event every day that begins at 3:00 PM, repeating until February 10, 2018
The Pink Tablet Project is a coalition of artists producing two original performances and an accompanying film for online streaming and broadcast.
The Pink Tablet is a feral opera—part play, part dance, part choral performance. The story it tells wanders a labyrinth of wilderness and femaleness, wherein (like the fairytales it echoes) adults are incapable, unwilling or averse to protecting children—girl children in particular—from the dangers they face by fact of their own existence in the world. Confronted with various modes of aggression, the girls lay claims with a shape-shifting ferocity. But the bodies they become are no safer. Hunted, scapegoated, trapped, and loathed, the complexity we are exploring is the fact of being a being—how in so many small ways we open to and guard against the world in all its shimmering terror and beauty.
The Pink Tablet is written, composed, performed, filmed, and edited by a women-led team. In 2015, only 22% of such productions were produced by women, and only 15% by mixed-gender partnerships. The journal of American Theater lists working with women across art forms, building alliances between groups, and encouraging productions by or with participation of women as solutions to the problem of representation in media and entertainment.
