Announcing the development of TIME’S UP!

Along with a new music-opera-performance based on Nellie Bly’s Ten Days in a Mad House, AntiGravity is proud to announce the development of Time’s Up by Kym Moore!

Time’s Up: love, friendship, and transformation across the fourth dimension. An exploration of love, history, reincarnation and the ties that bind. Combining visual media, sound, movement and text to demonstrate the ways in which history, physics and metaphysics inform the complex dimensions of “relationship” is the primary goal of this new performance work.  String Theory, Viewpoints performance theory, and historical accounts taken from the 14th Century Witch Burnings in Europe, The Civil Rights Movement in the U.S. and Contemporary urban culture will serve as the backdrop for the main characters who are engaged in a karmic journey towards wholeness that may impact the world at large should they succeed in their process of recovering what had never really been lost.

On opera and Nellie Bly.

AntiGravity is proud to announce the development of a new devised work inspired by the life, history and stories of Nellie Bly – the tenacious American journalist famous for her undercover exposé of an insane asylum and 1888 realization of the novel, Around the World in Eighty Days.

Composer Michael Costagliola teams up with lyricist-songwriter Ned Riseley and director-creator Michael T. Williams.

From Providence to Boston to La Mama.

After months of planning, devising, building and refining, Yermedea Raw has made it to La Mama by way of 95 Empire in downtown Providence and the Factory Theatre in Boston (produced by Sleeping Weazel).  One smooth load-in/tech and an incredible performance behind us, we are gearing up for the 2, 12-hour cycles this Saturday and Sunday at La Mama.  Yermedea plays at 4:15 on Saturday the 17th.

Off to Boston and AntiGravity Education Efforts!

After a highly successful run at 95 Empire in downtown Providence, Yermedea Raw moves on to Boston before our final performances at La Mama E.T.C in New York City!  Wish us luck as we share with the Boston community!
