I'M BLEEDING ALL OVER THE PLACE: A LIVING HISTORY TOUR
Created by Brooke O’Harra
Come to La MaMa for a Living History Tour of theatre, the everyday, conflict, and your own will to make meaning with us. This summer, director/artist Brooke O’Harra embarks on the fourth event of her nine-part project, I’m Bleeding All Over the Place: Studies in Directing and Nine Encounters Between Me and You. Delving into the emotional landscape of everyday conflict, this work examines how gender and sexuality, narrative and story, conflict and resolution, relate and come to form in the dynamic space between the audience and the performer.
The tour is guided by ten performers and runs at scheduled intervals over twelve days in June. I’m Bleeding All Over the Place: A Living History Tour includes written text by Brooke O’Harra and Casey Llewellyn, with Erin Courtney, Kristen Kosmas and Heidi Schreck. Original music by Brendan Connelly. Performers include Becca Blackwell, Jane Bradley, Hye Young Chyun, Sharon Hayes, Laryssa Husiak, Anna Kohler, Zave´ Martohardjono, Greg Merhten, Alexander Paris, and Tanya Selvaratnam.
