The Eclectic Company Theatre presents
Prayer: A Song Cycle
created by The Reflective Collective
Directed by Angela Grillo
Music Composed by Sackjo22
Produced by Angela Gillo, Laura Lee Bahr, and Beth Ricketson
PRAYER is an immersive multi-media performance installation about prayer as a conduit of transformation. Built on a song cycle composed by Susan Joseph (Sackjo22), this unique cycle of prayers for guidance, relief and gratitude re-imagines Evie’s dream of Dorothy Vogel through music, text, video and gesture directed by Angela Grillo. The ephemeral Chorus (Sackjo22 and Evie Ruth) and Dorothy (Beth Ricketson) performing with Haskel Joseph, create a dedicated space to be immersed in art as prayer.
About The Reflective Collective
The Reflective Collective is a collaboration with Angela Grillo, Susan Joseph (sackjo22) and Evie Ruth. They came together through working on boxWINDOWdoor,a play on dreams conceived and written through Evie, directed by Angela, with music by Sackjo22. Through the five-year process of gestating Acts I and II, they explored how to make art from the subterranean realm of dreams, visions and the unconscious. This exploration shifted and transformed their art and lives. In this current installation, music by Sackjo22 is the foundational structure.
PRAYER unveils a shift in artistic and conceptual direction for the collaborators who finally understand that their job is guided by the imaginal, rather than the other way around!
