“The Arrival” @ Andy’s Summer Playhouse – Sat. 7/8

Orange Grove Dance will present a workshop production of THE ARRIVAL this Saturday, July 8th @ 7:00pm as part of The Greenhouse @ Andy’s Summer Playhouse in Wilton, NH.

The Greenhouse is a metaphoric extension of The Playhouse, where an invited artist/group of artists hold residency for as little or as long as possible to create a new script. In The Greenhouse, we encourage experimentation, scene readings, workshops of movement ideas, and open work sessions so that kids may be exposed to the process of brainstorming for the stage. The Greenhouse culminates into a public reading of a full script or a workshop performance.

For our 2017 Summer of Adversity, The Greenhouse presents:

A stage adaptation of the book THE ARRIVAL by Shaun Tan.

The Arrival is a migrant story told as a series of wordless images that might seem to come from a long forgotten time. A man leaves his wife and child in an impoverished town, seeking better prospects in an unknown country on the other side of a vast ocean. He eventually finds himself in a bewildering city of foreign customs, peculiar animals, curious floating objects and indecipherable languages. With nothing more than a suitcase and a handful of currency, the immigrant must find a place to live, food to eat and some kind of gainful employment. He is helped along the way by sympathetic strangers, each carrying their own unspoken history: stories of struggle and survival in a world of incomprehensible violence, upheaval and hope.”
