I used to wish I had the investigative spirit of a journalist, but over the years I’ve proven to myself time and again what I really love is making images and investigating patterns: patterns in thought, patterns in images, patterns in life. We all approach the new with a preconceived notion, we all bring with us a past and history; our history’s push us, guide us, and sometimes scare us. This is what I love about theater in process, you get to see everyone’s past come to life in a new way, in a way that can present both frailty and power together in the same breath. This isn’t journalism, I’m no journalist - so take everything that follows with that in mind.
Finally the show opens. An audience is what truly brings life to performance. The colors of expectation and hope are illuminated, and the flushed excitement of telling an old story in new ways becomes reality.
The cast, from Left to Right: Preston Butler III, Kelsey Delemar, Elias Pearlstein, and Kristin Tripe.
Dead Awaken was Conceived & Directed by Brian Carbine, Music by Preston Butler III & Brian Carbine and will have it’s UK premiere at 2016 Edinburgh Festival Fringe
