Event Details

Seven professional performers and musicians from across the country will come together for seven days to create seven devised works for two stagings of innovative, inspiring and thought-provoking performances at the historic St. Mane Theatre in Lanesboro, MN on Saturday, June 1 and Sunday, June 2 at 7:30 p.m.

Inspired by the collaborative and experimental work done by theater companies such as the Rude Mechs, the Neo-Futurists, and the Saratoga International Theater Institute, Audacious Raw Theater (A.R.T.) was conceived by Lanesboro-based performing artist Catherine Glynn as a multi-year initiative to foster the creation and development of new works. The theme for year three is “Inside, Outside, Upside Down.” Jerome Yorke who has been a part of A.R.T. since its inception chose the theme, “because of its seemingly inexhaustible potential, and the ability to flip norms on their heads.” As Austrian physicist Erwin Schrödinger, who worked on the physical nature of unified field theory, has said, “The task is…not so much to see what no one has yet seen; but to think what nobody has yet thought, about that which everybody sees.”

The artists include Jerome Yorke, Jr. a devised theater-maker and clown from Cincinnati; Hilary Williams a Chicago–based actress, writer and educator; Laura Gentry an artist and laughter ambassador from Marquette, Iowa; J Pankaj Jha an actor, activist and storyteller originally from India; Aurelia Clunie an Evanston, Illinois–based actress, director and teaching artist; Paula Ramirez an activist, actor, improviser and educator originally from Venezuela; Lewis Youngren an actor, director and educator originally from Hastings, MN; and Catherine Glynn, who divides her time between performing and producing theater and executive coaching at Fortune 500 companies around the world.

Prepare to be surprised and delighted by 7, or more, newly devised works of Audacious Raw Theater, while also gaining insight into the creative process and embracing the spontaneous. Together the group will be revising and recreating throughout their time in Lanesboro. Audiences are encouraged to come for both stagings as each performance are unique and will never be repeated again! Year three of Audacious Raw Theater is happening in conjunction with the annual Rhubarb Festival in Sylvan Park from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, June 1. All ages are welcome & encouraged.
