The One Less Travelled By: An Evening of Solo Performances
The title is drawn from the final lines of Robert Frost’s poem The Road Not Taken:

"Two roads diverged in a wood, and I –
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference."

From a foundation of concrete sources – image, music, props, selected text and scored action – each performer has created an original ‘journey’ solo performance piece. All performances originate in a laboratory setting in which ideas (hypotheses) are tested in concrete ways through specific tasks and improvisation.

Content and themes of the One Less Traveled range from the sacred and the profane of ordinary objects, to love and sacrifice as a terrible beauty, to the affect of sound on the human experience, the insidiousness of enclosure, the rhythm of mental disturbance and the cost of adulthood.

The performances are arranged as two separate series each featuring four 20 to 25 minute solo pieces.

Recommended for mature audiences.
